The Division II state playoffs are now officially in the Fairfield Ludlowe girls lacrosse's future.
The Falcons dominated the second half, outscoring Staples 4-2 as Ludlowe beat the Lady Wreckers, 9-8 on Wednesday at Ginny Parker Field in Westport.
"To come through in a game like this shows a lot about their character," Ludlowe Head Coach Amy Alvord said.
Staples led 6-3 with 3:28 to go in the first half, but Larson and Sarah Nesi both tallied right before halftime.
"I think getting those two goals right before the half were huge for our team," Larson said.
Ludlowe took the lead on a goal by Nesi with 22:11 left and never trailed again.
