TIGERS HAMMER HEMPFIELD ON SENIOR NIGHT, 6-0
The NA Lady Tigers hosted Hempfield on Wednesday night at Newman Stadium. It was Senior Night for NA’s nine seniors, Brooke Cameron, Erin Coran, Lily DeNoma, Gabby Herbert, Alyssa Hillenbrand, Anna Hopkins, Alexa Hueston, Rena Israel, and Katie Shideler. The seniors didn’t disappoint, capping off the regular season with a 6-0 win over the Spartans. Cameron, Coran, Herbert and Hillenbrand all tallied points for the Tigers, and even goalie-turned-forward Shideler got in on the fun with her first career goal. With the win, NA finished section play with an 8-2 record, second to Pine Richland at 10-0.
The Tigers now turn their attention to the WPIAL playoffs which begin on Wednesday, October 26. They will travel in the WPIAL semifinals to face the champion of Section 2-AAA, either Fox Chapel or Peters Township. The Foxes and Indians play each other tonight to determine the section title. Fox Chapel won the first meeting this season with Peters Township on September 27 by a 2-1 decision.
