Great lacrosse highlights are like busses. You wait days for one, then all of a sudden two come along right next to each other. When it happens, it’s a reason for rejoicing.
Luckily, Friday is one of those days. Even more luckily, after a terrific boys dodge by Mikey Clinton, we have a fantastic girls goal by Paige Diminick.
With Hempfield facing off against Lampeter-Strasburg, Diminick slathered the icing on a one-sided victory with her team’s 16th goal on a wicked behind-the-back dump in off a loose ball pickup. The goal have Hemphill a 12-goal advantage.
Diminick and her teammates cruised to a victory as the Central Pa. squad races toward the area playoffs before the senior heads on to play at St. Joseph’s in the fall. After a season in which she scored 54 goals, she emerged as the clear leader from the front for a Hempfield program on the rise.
Let’s hope Diminick gets at least one more shot at a glory goal like the one she scored against L-S before her high school career comes to a close.
