Highlights: North Allegheny 12 Mt. Lebanon 11

Highlight package is strictly from the Mt. Lebanon perspective but we’ve included a Vine of the game winner.

This play happened seconds after the opening face off.

That’s 2016 Yale commit Brian Ward getting leveled. Ward, a former football player, shrugged off the collision and finished with at least 6 points on the day including this step down.

Overhand shot to the off hip. How ruthless.

Here’s another goal from Ward. (Still struggling with editing film in iMovie and transferring it to Vine. But the tight zoom on Ward’s mechanics gives you a good idea of what a D1 athlete looks like when he shoots on the run. This is such a violent action. Not going to generate 80, 90, 100 mph speeds being delicate.)

Kyle Rullan scored the game tying goal and the game winner in overtime.

North Allegheny plays Seneca Valley tonight.

Mt. Lebanon was of course without Mercer commit Brian Kelly who was injured skiing over the winter. He is expected to return in April. Mt. Lebanon plays Glenbrook North (IL) on Friday.
