NORTHERN VIRGINIA (WDVM) — Friday kicked off the VHSL Class 6 lacrosse state quarterfinals. For our local teams, only two more wins would get them to the state final next Saturday.
Robinson at Langley (Girls’ Lacrosse)
Langley, the 6D region champs, showed why they are the returning state champions. After trailing 1-0 early to Robinson, Saxon senior Julia Daly scored four straight goals. Langley cruised the rest of the way, defeating Robinson 14-7, advancing to the state semis.
Yorktown at W.T. Woodson (Girls’ Lacrosse)
It will be a rematch of the Liberty District final and the 6D Region final in the state semis. Yorktown led by two at the half over Woodson, but was able to outscore the Cavaliers 4-3 in the second half to close out the win 10-7. The Patriots will take on the returning state champs Langley early next week with a spot in the state final on the line.
Madison at West Potomac (Boys’ Lacrosse)
The Warhawks and Wolverines went back and forth all night long. Madison trailed the 6C Region champs 8-5 heading into the fourth before going on a 4-1 run in the final quarter to send it into overtime. In OT, Jake Green gave the Warhawks the win, defeating West Potomac 10-9, and securing their spot in the state semifinals.
Lake Braddock at Yorktown (Boys’ Lacrosse)
The returning champs were in great form Saturday evening against Lake Braddock. It was a close one after the first half, but the Patriots pulled away in the second, all thanks to a handful of goals from sophomore Hudson Greene. Yorktown defeats Lake Braddock 14-7 to advance to the state semis, as they will take on Madison for the third time this season.
