NA Bounces Back Against Bethel Park With 7-1 Win
North Allegheny bounced back from its loss to Peters Township last week with a convincing 7-1 victory over Bethel Park at the Spencer Family YMCA on Thursday night.

The game remained tightly contested until the Tigers broke the game open in the second period. NA pushed four pucks past BP goalie Janson Sauer in the second stanza with goals by Luke Walkauskas, Evan Kerber, Dylan Murray and another by Perrotte. The only Bethel Park marker of the night came at the 14:01 mark of the second period by Ian Majernik, but did little to prevent NA from taking a commanding 5-1 lead into the third period.
