The ice hockey team fell to Upper St. Clair on Thursday night, 4-2. 

It was a rough night for Baldwin, as the team struggled to get shots on net and get into the offensive zone, senior Noah Tierno said.

“We could have played better as a team,” Tierno said. “We needed to get more shots in.”

Junior Tanner Plinta agreed. 

“We could have taken fewer penalties and had a harder forecheck,” Plinta said.

Plinta and senior Levi McCrea scored for Baldwin. 

With the Highlanders on a nine-game losing streak, the boys are looking to improve on their season. They intend to get better defensively and to work on the penalty killing, Plinta said. 

Plinta himself has been a large contributor to the team as the captain and has still been able to lead by example through their struggles, Tierno said.

The team will play an away game against North Allegheny on Monday night.
