Tigers Trounce Titans On Senior Night, 11-1

Posted on:

A ten-goal outburst in the second half spearheaded a Senior Night blowout for North Allegheny on Monday, 11-1, over the Shaler Titans in a Section 1-AAAA contest at Newman Stadium.

While the game had a lopsided finish, the first half was a far different story. The Tigers dictated the pace throughout most of the half, but a quick strike by the upstart Titans gave the visitors a 1-0 lead. Senior Haley Kostorick streaked up the left sideline and feathered a pass to Lexi Tylenda who let loose a blast from 30-yards out with 22:40 remaining in the first half.

Following the Tylenda goal, the skies opened and NA wouldn’t let the downpour, or the early deficit, dampen Senior Night. With 5:36 left in the half, senior Lucia Wells tied the score with her first of the night on a point-blank shot from a sharp angle and the game was deadlocked, 1-1. Lucia Wells led all goal scorers with a hat trick, increasing her team-leading total on the season to 16, earning Wright Automotive Player of the Game honors.

In the second half, North Allegheny opened the floodgates and scored six times in the first 10 minutes of the half and netted 10 unanswered goals to take command of the game. Junior Abigail Stager gave the Tigers a 2-1 lead in the 42nd minute and NA never looked back.

Stager and senior Anna Bundy tallied two markers each. Senior Allie Burns, junior Sam Braden, sophomore Aubrey Wells and junior Jadyn Coy all scored one goal apiece in the rout.

Along with Bundy, Burns and Lucia Wells, fellow seniors Sophia Palermo and Riley Cerqua were all recognized before the game.

North Allegheny leaps to 11-1 overall with the victory and jumps to 7-1 in Section 1-AAAA. Shaler slips to 2-7-1 overall and 1-6 in section play. The Tigers will visit Pine-Richland on Wednesday in another section contest.

In battle of unbeaten teams, the North Allegheny girls’ soccer team was edged by the Seneca Valley Raiders on Friday afternoon, 2-1, in Section 1-AAAA action.

However, the NA rally fell one goal short and Seneca Valley prevailed to improve to 7-0-2 overall and 6-0-2 in the section.

North Allegheny has had no problem scoring goals this season, as the Tigers are averaging 5.7 goals per game after the win over Allderdice (3-4, 2-4). But lately, their opponents have had trouble finding the net, as the 5-0 clean sheet was the fourth straight for the Tigers and their fifth in 10 games.

It didn’t take North Allegheny long to go on top in this one, as Abigail Stager banged home a rebound in the 7th minute for a 1-0 lead.

It was a pair of goals in quick succession late in the first half that padded the North Allegheny lead.

Junior Ally Ruiz punched home a Lucia Wells rebound in the 35th minute. After a corner kick from the far flag found its way to the near side of the field, Stager fired home her second of the night past Dragons keeper Jillian Blake to make the score 3-0 in the 36th minute.

Senior Allie Burns’ distribution skills were on display on the next two Tigers goals. The forward made two great assists from the right flank, finding Sam Braden who scored her eighth goal of the season in the 70th minute, and then Burns hit Wells with a pass, who then drove the ball into the net upstairs for her 13th goal of the campaign to make the final score 5-0.

Junior Natalie Rak made six saves in net to keep the Tigers (10-0, 6-0) undefeated in 2022.

The Wright Automotive Player of the Game was awarded to Abigail Stager. The junior forward and Kentucky recruit netted the game winner with the opening tally and now has nine markers on the season.

North Allegheny hits the halfway mark of section play on Wednesday, with a big road contest against second place Seneca Valley.

The Tigers are back home on Monday when they host Shaler in a match that will carried on the North Allegheny Sports Network.
