ABINGTON HEIGHTS LACROSSE GATHERING | Abington Journal
Abington Heights ended April on a five-game Wyoming Valley Conference women’s lacrosse winning streak, starting with the most impressive win in program history.
The Comets beat Wyoming Seminary, historically the most successful District 2 program in sports, 13-7 at Klassner Field of the Blue Knights.
Abington Heights went on to win four games in eight days, building up a 74-19 margin of victory, to take the team to 8-2 from an 0-3 debut. The only two losses during that span are against the Wyoming Valley Conference’s top two teams, Crestwood and Lake-Lehman.
Caly Yankow scored five goals and Ava Davis made 13 saves in the first-ever win over Wyoming Seminary on April 19.
Allison Dammer and Annabella Begley added three goals each.
The Comets opened up a 7-1 lead at halftime.
Yankow, a sophomore, surpassed 50 goals for her career on April 25 when she joined Dammer in scoring four goals apiece in a 17-6 win over Holy Redeemer. She went on to score seven goals while Dammer netted five in a 15-5 win over Tunkhannock three days later.
Abington Heights is 4-8 and leads the Wyoming and Tunkhannock area in a three-way battle for the final two spots in the Class 2A District 2 playoffs.
The Comets were outplayed at times, but they showed their ability to win close games. They are 3-0 in one-goal games, including a pair of 6-5 home wins on April 15 and 23 over North Pocono and Danville.
