Sterling (June 9, 2015) – With ninety seconds gone, Potomac Falls had already scored three goals in this girls lacrosse 5A state semi-final game. The Panthers’ lead was only two, but you got the sense that the ease with which they were scoring was just going to continue. Chas Sumser was there for the game and posted this photo gallery of 146 images.
Leading 15-4 at halftime, Potomac Falls played possession for most of the second half against the worthy but clearly outmatched Albemarle Patriots. Give the visitors credit, they never stopped fighting even when the last fifteen minutes amounted to a game of keep-away. In control of their destiny–a trip to the state championship–the Panthers cruised to a 18-6 final margin.
The state final will be a rematch of the 5A North regional final. It’s Potomac Falls vs. Stone Bridge for the title on Saturday, June 13.
