8:00 PMNorth Allegheny preaches order, intellectual endurance subsequently semi-final costs
Senior midfielder North Allegheny Dante Caputo knew that the football team Seneca Valley will not be a pushover. 1 meeting between the teams, the Tigers squeaked past the raiders with a four-point victory.
” I knew in fact that they are willing, said Caputo. "Coming out in the playoffs, I turned back 2 years when they spoiled us in the semifinals. I was a little freaked out, I'm not gonna lie, I felt something. We had a week of fun with bye, we didn't play football for 2 weeks. We didn't have the usual trick.”
Target raiders discovered a personal offensive move and buried the top seeded Nord Allegheny with a 31-14 win in the wpial Class 6A Nov semi-final. 9. Losing put a lid on that, actually that was a strong season for Tigers.
North Allegheny (10-1) finished undefeated in the regular season for the first time since winning the PIAA Class AAA championship in 2012. Tigers coach art Walker felt that North Allegheny actually turned into a powerful concert at the end of the season in front of Pine-Richland.
Applying 20 points in 4 quarters, North Allegheny wrapped the crown of a class 6A conference with a 27-7 win.
"We played our best game 2 weeks before," Walker said of the playoffs across from the Seneca plain. "For us it was quite unpleasant, in fact that we were not able to arrange everything possible, so it was more similar to the battle. That's why you're playing.”
When it came to protection, this division of tigers forced any enemy to sweat. North Allegheny borrowed 2nd space in class 6A in defense, ceding to Seneca Valley, limiting their own enemies to 14.1 points for the competition.
The evil pass rush produced 36.5 liners, led by 8 with Midfielder amosis porter. Tyler Mangone (5.5), Cade hawk (five), Ethan Augustine (five), and Liam Alker-Connelly (five) have produced 5 or more.
To find triumph means to be in the right mindset. Caputo said the fact that expectations were higher with that, in fact that Nordby Allegheny returned.
” We knew in fact what you are capable of," said Caputo, who finished with 2 sacks and 43 tackles. "We knew exactly what to create, pull the game and pull the passage. We went out and played the perfect reel.”
Tigers still managed to find the main members of an offense. Senior Ben Maenza stepped into the starting run back role and tortured 1,073 yards and scored 17 touchdowns. Ben Petska started out as a lesser patron, was conducted 664 Yards and will be smelling this skill forward.
North Allegheny would like to learn from this season and find a way to return to the end of WPIAL in the proper year.
"We're bound to freeze to death than any other," Walker said. "It is not enough that we are obliged to freeze than any other, if we want to turn the corner, it should be consistent improvement and consistent thinking any week. You don't have the opportunity to arrest a week off, there's so much to do to get to the championship. Any week and practice relevant. Must be the mentality of any week. It has to be refreshed. You have no way of avoiding anyone. There must be an unimaginable amount of psychological endurance.”
