NA Knocks Out Knoch With Sweep
The final bell has been rung to close out the regular season. But before the dust settled, the North Allegheny Tigers were able to land the 1-2 punch knocking out both the boys and girls teams from Knoch High School. The Knights didn’t stand a chance and raised the white flag as the NA Boys’ team earned all seven match points.
The Tigers finished the regular season with 8 wins and 2 losses, qualifying for extended play in the WPIBL Team Championships. They will be traveling to Nesbit’s Lanes in Plum to take on the best high school teams in Western PA.
