Wes Powell Nets 5 Goals, NA Decimates Shaler, 14-2
The reigning WPIAL champions flexed their muscle on Wednesday night in a one-sided victory over Shaler, 14-2, to open section play. North Allegheny senior Wes Powell led the onslaught with five goals and two assists. All five of Powell’s goals came in an eight-goal outburst by the Tigers in the second quarter.
Joining Powell on the scorecard was senior Gavin Hagen who netted three goals and three assists. Freshman Isaiah Davis chipped in with two goals and two assists, and senior Mason Mickey scored the first two goals of his career. Senior Trevor Saundry and sophomore Ben Maenza added goals in the rout over Shaler. The Tigers led 14-0 before Shaler broke the shutout with two meaningless goals in the fourth period.
North Allegheny dominated time of possession and senior Alec Vissotski was a big reason why as the Ithaca College recruit won 14 of 17 draws and gobbled up a team-high eight ground balls. Senior defenseman Greg Ferringer posted a team-best three forced errors, added three ground balls and tallied on assist. Senior defenseman Jack Kairys totaled four ground balls.
With the win, North Allegheny leaps to 2-1 on the season and 1-0 in Section 3-AAA. Shaler remains winless at 0-3 overall and 0-1 in the section.
