Posted on:

For the past two seasons, the Class 6A championship in girls’ basketball has come down to North Allegheny and Peters Township. In 2018, the Tigers mercy-ruled the Indians for a 79-48 win. Last season, Peters Township edged NA in overtime, 43-40. The two teams rekindled their rivalry on Saturday night at the Joey Fabus Classic at Bethel Park in a game that more resembled the 2018 title tilt as North Allegheny rolled to a 68-36 victory.

The Tigers were on fire from the very start and opened up a 21-10 lead in the first period and held a 36-22 advantage by halftime. The lead grew even larger in the second half as NA outscored the Indians, 31-15, in the final two quarters.

Junior Lizzy Groetsch was the leading scorer for North Allegheny with a game-high 25 points. Sophomore Taylor Rawls netted 14 points and poured in three 3-pointers in the third period. Peters Township was paced by Alina Coppula, who had eight points on the night.

With the non-section win, North Allegheny improves to 14-3 overall. Peters Township falls to 5-12 on the season. The Tigers will host Norwin in an important Section 1-6A clash on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast live by the North Allegheny Sports Network.
