State College Rallies For Narrow Win Over NA, 9-8

Posted on:

State College rallied from a 6-3 deficit for a 9-8 win over the North Allegheny Tigers on Friday night. Senior attack Will Harvey posted a hat trick, with all three goals coming in the third period, to help the Little Lions in their come-from-behind win.

It was North Allegheny who had to rally back at the outset of the game after State College had built a 3-0 lead in the first quarter. The Tigers stormed back with goals by Jono Pelusi, Gavin Hagen and Jack Profozich to tie the game at 3-3 before halftime.

The Tigers continued their surge following intermission with three straight goals in the first 1:08 of the second half. Jack Kairys, Dillon Dugan and Hagen tallied markers in the third period to build a 6-3 advantage. Unfortunately for NA, the Little Lions clawed their way back and scored six of the final eight goals for a 9-8 victory.

Aiding the North Allegheny cause was junior Greg Ferringer who collected six forced errors on defense and five ground balls. Kairys added  three forced errors and three ground balls.

North Allegheny sits at 6-5 overall following the narrow non-section loss. State College improves to 7-4 on the season. The Tigers will visit Kiski Prep in another non-section affair on Tuesday night.
