Upper Arlington Upends North Allegheny, 8-5
The North Allegheny boys’ lacrosse team suffered its first loss of the season with an 8-5 defeat to Upper Arlington (OH) on Sunday afternoon at Newman Stadium.

Upper Arlington answered back, however, with a five-goal outburst in the second quarter to grab a 6-4 lead by intermission. Senior Kyler Byerly tallied a goal for NA in the second period.
After a scoreless third quarter, Upper Arlington netted a pair of goals in the fourth quarter to provide enough breathing room to capture an 8-5 victory. NA’s lone goal in the second half was provided by Matt Osten.
Senior middie Jake Williams led the Tigers in groundballs with five on the afternoon. Sophomore goalie Aiden Miller made seven saves.
North Allegheny slips to 4-1 overall on the season. The Tigers will host Bethel Park on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The non-section contest will be broadcast live via the internet by the North Allegheny Sports Network.
