Tigers Reign Supreme Over Upper St. Clair, 14-3
On a rainy night at Newman Stadium, the North Allegheny Tigers poured on the goals in a 14-3 win over the Upper St. Clair Panthers on Thursday night. Five different Tigers scored goals in the non-section win, including Wes Powell and Kyler Byerly who paced NA with four goals each.
The offensive outburst began immediately as the Tigers exploded for a 6-0 lead in the first quarter. Junior Matt Osten scored three goals during the first-period surge and was named the Wright Automotive Player of the Game by the North Allegheny Sports Network.
Powell, Byerly and Ryan Leonard also netted first-quarter goals for the early six-goal advantage. North Allegheny’s sixth goal by Leonard came on a 2-on-1 break served up on a beautiful pass by Nick Kairys.
From that point, the rout was on. North Allegheny danced through the rain drops for a convincing victory and invoked the mercy rule in the fourth quarter. Sophomore Tyler Lamark joined in the offensive onslaught with two goals.
Senior faceoff man Alex Hays had a another strong night, this time outdueling Ohio Wesleyan University commit Grant Evans. Freshman goalie Aiden Miller earned his first varsity win in net.
Upper St. Clair’s only goals were provided by Jimmy Wilkinson, Elijah Pistorius, and Logan Tobias.
North Allegheny improves to 1-2 overall with the non-section triumph. Upper St. Clair slips to 1-1 on the young season. The Tigers will host Seneca Valley on Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast live via the internet on the North Allegheny Sports Network.
