Archbishop Wood works overtime to top Abington Heights, reach PIAA-5A final

Archbishop Wood's Jaylen Stinson dribbles up court near Abington Heights’ Jack Nealon during their PIAA-5A semifinal on Monday, March 18.

BETHLEHEM >> Jaylen Stinson dribbled past halfcourt, tossed the ball skyward and immediately made for the bench to start the celebration.

Thanks partially to him and partially to a lot of other guys, the Archbishop Wood boys basketball team was going back to the state title game. It took four extra minutes of play, but the Vikings showed the maturity and poise they’ve worked all season to build as they wore down and finally broke a really good Abington Heights team to do it.

Wood brought its best in overtime and emerged with a 63-53 win over the Comets in their PIAA 5A semifinal Monday night at Bethlehem Freedom High School.
