NA Silences Talbots Ahead Of Showdown With Raiders
Thanks in large part to a terrific night in net by goalkeeper Madison Martin, the North Allegheny Girls Soccer Team blanked the Hampton Talbots, 1-0, in a Section 2-AAA meeting on Wednesday. Martin made 10 saves in the game, including a terrific diving stop on a Hampton breakaway in the 26th minute of the first half. Martin’s effort on that play and throughout the game in net kept the contest scoreless until the 18th minute of the second half. Sophomore Amanda Miller received a through ball and played a pass back to junior Savana Yurick who kicked a well-placed shot over the Hampton net-minder for a 1-0 lead. Courtesy of Martin and the NA defense, that lone goal would hold up for another section victory.
The win advances North Allegheny’s overall record to 8-0 overall and 4-0 in section play. Hampton drops to 3-5 overall and 2-3 in section play. The Tigers will next face the Seneca Valley Raiders in a showdown for first place in Section 2. Kickoff is slated for 6:30 pm. The game will be broadcast live via the internet on the North Allegheny Sports Network.
