In Crozet, Western Albemarle boys lacrosse raced out to a double-digit lead at halftime and ran away with an easy 20-5 win over Jefferson Forest in the Class 4 state quarterfinals Saturday.
The Warriors (10-5) kept the foot on the gas early, building a 15-3 lead after the first two quarters, and Jefferson Forest couldn’t do anything to climb out of the hole in the second half, scoring just twice more.
Jefferson Forest ends its season at 12-6, while Western Albemarle moves on to face defending state champ E.C. Glass in the semifinals. That game will take place either Tuesday or Wednesday at Glass.
