The North Allegheny Tigers had a bad taste in their mouth when they lost in the WPIAL semifinals to Hempfield.

Fortunately, they will have a chance to redeem themselves in the PIAA Class AAAA quaterfinals.

The Tigers (23-2) advanced with a 58-44 drubbing of District 6 champion State College Tuesday night at Indiana High School.

"The kids are handling pressure well," head coach Sherri McConnell said. "They are ready to take advantage of a second opportunity against Hempfield."

Against State College (18-8), sophomore Abby Gonzalez stole the show with 18 points, 7 assists and 5 steals.
