Fast Start Helps Tigers Bury Big Macs

Posted on:

Senior Aaron Miller’s hat trick helped propel North Allegheny to a 5-2 victory over the Canon-McMillan Big Macs on Monday night at the Baierl Ice Complex in Warrendale.

Miller scored the first two goals of night as the Tigers buried the Big Macs with an avalanche of first-period goals.  Senior Vincenzo Mazur added a goal, assisted by Christopher Hanlon and Kevin Hart, to close out the first period with a 3-0 lead.

It appeared Canon-McMillan might make it a game on back-to-back goals in the second period from Dakota Albarano and Daniel Garver to trim the NA lead to 3-2. However, Miller scored his third goal at the 9:05 mark of the second period and Tyler Putnam closed out the scoring in the third to hand the Tigers a 5-2 victory.

Senior Richard Karapandi earned the win in net with 23 saves. Canon-McMillan goalie Mario Eafrati was peppered with 38 shots and made 33 saves in a losing effort.

North Allegheny snapped a mini two-game losing streak with the win, improving to 11-4 on the season. Canon-McMillan dips to 3-9 on the year. The Tigers visit Central Catholic on Tuesday, January 29 at 7:00 p.m.
