Despite its recent struggles, Avonworth remains in playoff contention in the topsy turvy Section 3-A where one game separates first from fourth place. Vincentian (8-2, 6-2) and Bishop Canevin (7-2, 6-2) are tied atop the section, with Sewickley Academy (5-4-1, 5-2-1) currently occupying the third and final playoff spot. The Antelopes, one of only two public schools in the eight-team section, are in fourth place with a 6-4-1 overall record and 5-3-1 section record.
Avonworth had started section play 3-0, but it went winless in its next three section matches, losing at Bishop Canevin and Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic and drawing Seton-LaSalle. It turned things around with a big win over Sewickley Academy when Lauren Robinet scored midway through the second half. It was the lone goal of the game. The Antelopes followed that up with a 4-0 win against Carlynton before suffering a 2-1 setback at Vincentian. Currently, junior forward Emily Paszkiewicz leads the team with nine goals.
