DELMONT ~

North Allegheny entered the Director's Cup final looking to cap off a great run over the first three days of the tournament as the Tigers defeated Bethel Park, USC, Franklin Regional and Peters Twp.

Holy Ghost wanted to make the inaugural appearance of Eastern Pennsylvania teams a memorable one as the Firebirds bounced Central Catholic, Plum, Greensburg CC and Latrobe in their first four games.

It didn't take long for Shawn Dorsey to find the net after scoring the OT game-winner vs Central Catholic as he beat Bobby Daly just 36 seconds into the final for a 1-0 lead at 14:24. Daly had not given up a goal since the 2nd period of the Tigers opening game of the Showcase. NA would tie the score late in the first period as Joe Smarto found a loose puck and beat Andrew Golin for a 1-1 tie at the end of the first period.

Golin was keeping Holy Ghost in the game with several nice saves in the first and the second period with 18 saves, many of them from close range. Matt Pekins gave NA the lead on the power play at 13:57 of the second on a great pass from Paul Dittrich, who picked up the puck out of the corner and made a nice play.

On to the third period and North Allegheny was looking for the knockout punch, but Holy Ghost and Golin stood tall holding off the Tigers early on. The Firebirds tied the game as Paul Worthington found Buddy Lawall in front, who beat Bobby Daly and tie the game.
Holy Ghost and North Allegheny then waged a great skating dual as both teams looked to win it over the game final ten minutes. Golin stopped all ten NA shots in the third as the game headed into overtime. The Firebirds were given a power play opportunity with just 15 ticks left but could not convert in the OT.

North Allegheny then got a break as Holy Ghost was whistled at 5:55 on a slashing call behind the play. NA dumped the dumped puck from the red line, which fluttered off a Holy Ghost stick and Bryan Maloney and Joe Smarto hustled into the play to beat the Firebirds to the puck and worked it in front to a wide open freshman Wes Waldschmidt who buried a shot upstairs past Golin at 5:30 of the overtime and North Allegheny captured the first ever overtime Director's Cup final with a heartstopping 3-2 win over Holy Ghost Prep.
