Tigers Vanquish Vikings, 14-2

Posted on:

The North Allegheny boys’ lacrosse team rebounded from a loss to Mars last week with a lopsided victory over the Central Catholic Vikings on Wednesday night, 14-2.

The Tigers asserted their dominance from the very start, scoring just 1:04 into the game on a marker from Jonah Hawrylak. It was the first of seven goals on the night from the NA senior attack as Hawrylak earned Wright Automotive Player of the Game honors.

Following Hawrylak’s second goal at the 4:23 mark of the first quarter, senior Wesley Sprys scored to make it 3-0, Tigers. Sophomore Marc Bartolomucci netted back-to-back goals to end the first quarter for a 5-0 lead.

Junior Ryan Barry, who won all but one faceoff on the night, scored at the 2:35 mark of the second quarter to expand the NA advantage to 6-0. An unreleasable illegal stick penalty on NA at the end of the period seemingly gave Central Catholic a breath of momentum, especially when John Blount scored a man-up marker with just 2:15 remaining in the half. However, Hawrylak struck again for NA for a man-down goal with just 33 seconds left before intermission for a 7-1 lead.

North Allegheny turned the game into a full-fledged route in the third period with a six-goal outburst. Hawrylak tallied three goals in the quarter and senior attack Nick Eck posted a natural hat trick for a 13-1. Hawrylak scored one more in the fourth quarter for a 14-1 lead before Blount closed out the scoring for Central Catholic with 1:00 left, bringing the final score to 14-2, Tigers.

With the win, North Allegheny improves to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in Section 2-AAA. Central Catholic dips to 4-3 overall and 1-2 in the section. The Tigers will visit Bethel Park on Friday night for a non-section fray.
