Tigers Take Sting Out Of Yellow Jackets For First Shutout In 13 Years

Posted on:

The North Allegheny girls’ lacrosse team won its second game in as many days with a 15-0 blanking of the Freeport Yellowjackets on Wednesday evening. Junior goalie Izzie Trunzo needed to make only one save to post the first shutout by the Tigers in 13 years. The last NA shutout took place on March 29, 2010, as then-goalie Nia Parillo made four saves in a whitewash of Knoch, 19-0.

Aiding Trunzo in the shutout was senior Becka Oates with a strong defensive effort, delivering five groundballs and three caused turnovers.

The NA defense had plenty of help from the attack and middies who controlled possession for much of the night in a one-sided contest. The Tigers took the sting out of the Yellow Jackets in the first 25 minutes by jumping out to a 12-0 lead by halftime and then went into cruise control in the second half.

Helping lead the charge was senior Mila Prusak with two goals, one assist and six draw controls. Senior Delaney Kennedy aided in NA’s possession time by winning 9-of-13 draws, while scoring a goal. Junior Isla Abrams posted four draw controls, two caused turnovers and an assist to go along with two markers. The top goal scorer for NA was senior Leigh Failla with a hat trick. Senior Laurel Donley, junior Vivienne Hood and sophomore Avery Anderson added two goals each, while sophomore Madelyn Lemmon chipped in with a goal.

With the win, North Allegheny improves to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in Section 2-AAA. The Tigers will visit Norwin on Friday night at 7:30 in a non-section affair.
