Lady Tigers handle Rams, 3-0

Posted on:

Coming into Monday night, North Allegheny had beaten Pine-Richland four straight times. The Lady Tigers extended it to five with a 3-0 defeat of the Lady Rams on a windy night at Newman Stadium. The Tigers have outscored the Rams 17-2 in the last three meetings.

Pine-Richland controlled play in the first five minutes of the game dominating possession but were not able to get a shot on goal. After North Allegheny weathered the storm, Lucia Wells was able to get just enough space from her defender and scored to give the Lady Tigers a 1-0 lead six and a half minutes into the game. From there, North Allegheny would take control of the half. Alexa Spano and Jayden Coy had great chances to score in the half but nothing else was able to fall for the Lady Tigers in the half and they went into the locker room up, 1-0.

It was another early strike to start the second half as three and a half minutes in, Wells centered a ball into the box that deflected off of Pine-Richland defender Megan Roskoph, and into the net and North Allegheny had a 2-0 lead early in the second half. Because Wells was the last Tiger to touch the ball, she was credited with her second goal of the game and ninth of the season. For her efforts, Wells was named the Wright Automotive Player of the Game. Seven minutes later, Anna Bundy picked up her fourth tally of the season extending North Allegheny’s lead to 3-0.

The Tigers defense of Spano and Kena Shannon along with keeper Megan Miller was once again outstanding. The Lady Tigers posted their sixth straight shutout to start the season. North Allegheny had five shutouts all of last season.

North Allegheny improves to 6-0 overall and 2-0 in Section 1-AAAA. Pine-Richland falls to 2-3 and 0-2 in the section. The Lady Tigers now prepare for a huge section matchup against Butler, who is also 6-0, Wednesday on the road at 7:30 pm.

NA Blanks Seneca Valley In Section Opener, 2-0

Posted on:

A pattern seems to be developing for the North Allegheny girls’ soccer team, and it’s a very good one. Play sound possession offense using team speed, take advantage of scoring opportunities when presented and severely limit your opponent’s scoring chances. That has been the case so far for the Tigers in four matches, and that was the case in their 4A Section 1 opener against Seneca Valley, a 2-0 shutout at Newman Stadium.

Junior Lucia Wells had the first opportunity to score for the Tigers, but her left footed shot was steered clear of the near post by Raiders goalkeeper Virginia Fronk in the game’s third minute.

North Allegheny broke the ice in the 29th minute, when Jadyn Coy forced a takeaway which led to possession for Abigail Stager. The sophomore forward fired a right footed strike from distance that found it’s way under the crossbar for her first goal of the season which gave the Tigers the lead.

The best opportunity all night for Seneca Valley came in the 33rd minute, when Kylie Nemcek directed a shot towards the near post, but senior Megan Miller came off her line to make the save and keep the game 1-0. Wells nearly made it 2-0 in the 38th minute, but her free kick from 20-yards out hit the crossbar.

Keep that scenario in mind, but at the opposite end of the field in the second half. Wells was fouled and had a direct kick from 20-yards out on the left wing. Her low shot was on frame but stopped by Fronk, who couldn’t handle the rebound. Sophia Palermo swooped in and slid the ball inside the near post to give North Allegheny a 2-0 lead in the 61st minute. The goal was the 2nd of the season for the senior midfielder.

The Tigers defense and Miller in goal did the rest to secure the initial section win of the season. Miller has posted four consecutive shutouts for the Tigers (4-0/1-0). North Allegheny had five clean sheets total last season. The loss was the first of the season for Seneca Valley (3-1-1/0-1). North Allegheny’s next section match was scheduled for this Thursday at Shaler, but that has been postponed. The Tigers are off until Saturday when they host Baldwin in a non-section matchup at 2:30.

With her first goal of the season and eventual game winner, Abigail Stager was named the Wright Automotive Player of the Game. Stager now has four career goals in her varsity career at North Allegheny.
