CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -
The Albemarle boys lacrosse team beat Western Albemarle 11-9 in the 5A South Zone Championship game Thursday at AHS.
Kevin Bernardino led the Patriots with three goals, while Matt Crist had two goals and four assists.
Albemarle will host Loudoun Valley in the state semifinals Tuesday, while Western will travel to Loudoun County.
Head coach Greg Crow says, "The other two teams are up in Leesburg, so that's a long drive. It's good for the program to get another home game. It's a new format this year in the state playoffs. It's great for us to host. It does a lot for Albemarle lacrosse."
Crist adds, "It's one of the goals we've had since the beginning of the year, winning a regional championship, especially against our rivals, that always give up a good game. They played their hearts out. Hopefully we both can win next week and play for the one that we both really want."
