Churchill Boys and Girls Lacrosse Swept Out of Playoffs by Westminster

The Winston Churchill High School boys and girls lacrosse teams both met the same fate Saturday, each losing their 4A/3A semifinal matchups with Westminster in Reisterstown to miss out on a chance to appear in the state championship game for the first time.

For the girls, who lost 18-8, it was the third consecutive year in which they made it to the semifinal round. The boys, who lost 14-10, were making their first semifinal appearance since 2002.

The Westminster boys team will  face undefeated South River in the state final at UMBC on Wednesday at 4:00 pm. South River was a finalist last year as well, losing to Linganore, 13-12, in the title game.

The Westminster girls will face defending champion Severna Park at 6:00 pm Wednesday, also at UMBC.
