NA’s Comeback Bid Falls Short At Hampton
The North Allegheny girls’ lacrosse team visited Hampton on Wednesday night and dropped a 14-10 decision in a non-section contest. Trailing 13-7 with 12 minutes to play, the Tigers put together a furious rally and cut the deficit to 13-10 with 3:48 remaining. However, senior Kelli Gibson’s fourth goal of the night capped the scoring in a 14-10 win for the Talbots.
Along with Gibson’s big night, Hampton was sparked by five-goal performances from Sienna Rex and Emilia DiLiberto.
Seven different players scored goals for North Allegheny, including senior Leigh Failla who finished with a hat trick. Junior Isla Abrams followed with a pair of goals, while senior Mila Prusak, freshman Reagan Riordan, junior Mia Valentine, freshman Keely McMahon-Regan and sophomore Tessa McDowell all tallied one marker each.
In net, junior Izzie Trunzo posted 10 saves. Defensively, Prusak notched five caused turnovers. Senior Becka Oates led with five ground balls and added four caused turnovers. Abrams led with six draw controls.
North Allegheny falls to 7-9 on the season and will host Peters Township in the regular season finale on Thursday night.
