NA Blanks Winchester Thurston, 1-0
Head Coach Manuel Montero earned his first win at North Allegheny on Sunday evening as the Tigers blanked Winchester Thurston, 1-0, in day two of the JRK Memorial Classic at Pine-Richland. The Tigers snapped a 25-game unbeaten streak for Winchester Thurston, the reigning and PIAA champions in Class A.
Senior Ben Christian gave NA an early lead 1-0 with a goal from 18-yards out in the 4th minute. The lone marker proved to be enough thanks to a stingy Tigers defense led by senior center back Aidan Dyga. A beneficiary of NA’s strong defensive effort, junior goalie Dante Accamando made two saves to secure his second consecutive shutout.
With the win, North Allegheny improves to 1-0-1 on the season. The Tigers will begin section play on Tuesday night on the road at Shaler.
