Girls Basketball: Pine-Richland wins thriller against North Allegheny

Written by Joe Koch on .

It's always a huge deal when the top two teams in any classification square off against each other in any sport.

And, it's even bigger when those two teams are border rivals.

Such a scenario played out last Thursday when Pine-Richland remained unbeaten with an overall record of 11-0 and improved to 2-0 with a 50-47 Class 6A, Section 1 victory over previously unbeaten North Allegheny, the top-ranked team in 6A. The loss snapped a 10-game winning streak for the Tigers, who now are 1-1 in section play. Both teams play at 7:30 p.m. today. Pine-Richland hosts Butler. North Allegheny visits Seneca Valley.

The perimeter game was solid for the Rams as they made 11 3-point field goals. The Rams top scorer, Amanda Kalin, had 16 points, nine of them on 3 3-point goals. Hailey Zeise scored 16 for the Tigers.
