Tigers Comeback Bid Falls Just Short Against Bethel Park

Posted on:

Bethel Park jumped to a 3-0 lead and held on for a 4-2 victory over the North Allegheny Tigers on Friday night at the BladeRunners in the South Hills.  The game was scoreless before the Black Hawks busted out with three second period goals from Derek Lesnak, Jacob Salak and Tyler Kruszewski.  The last of which was a power play goal at the 13:19 mark of the period.  North Allegheny got on the board late in the second with a Daniel Bostedo tally to cut the score to 3-1.

The Tigers put the pressure on the Black Hawks just under three minutes into the third period when William Rahenkamp scored on a feed from Cameron Fisher to trim the deficit to 3-2. North Allegheny’s comeback hopes were dashed at the 13:05 mark of the third thanks to a Jake Worcester power play goal to bring the game to its final score, 4-2, Black Hawks.
