YARMOUTH — After losing three of its first four games, it looked like the Yarmouth girls’ lacrosse team wouldn’t get a chance to defend its Class B championship.

But Wednesday night, the second-seeded Clippers completed their romp through the East regional by rolling to a 15-7 win against No. 3 Freeport.

Yarmouth will play Kennebunk, a 10-7 winner over the Clippers on May 5, for the state title at 6 p.m. Saturday at Fitzpatrick Stadium.

“This team is young and hungry,” Yarmouth Coach Dorothy Holt said. “It took us a while to get everybody in the right positions. We’re a little bit of a different team than everybody saw in the beginning of the season.”

In their three playoff games in the regional tournament, the Clippers outscored their opponents, 56-9.

Yarmouth, which won seven of its final eight games during the regular season, held a 12-2 lead over the Falcons at the end of the half.

“We came out with a ton of energy,” said Shannon Fallon, a senior attacker who scored eight goals and had four assists.

“Our coach has been telling us to come off the draw with a lot of energy and just play Yarmouth lacrosse, and I think we did that today and just executed really well in the first half.”

The Clippers (11-4) did everything well.

“I couldn’t ask for anything more from my team,” Holt said. “Seriously, they were executing the fast break and they were clearing the ball up the field as beautifully as I’ve seen this season. They’ve come together, and it really shows.”

It took Freeport (8-7) the first 32 minutes of the game to get going offensively. Five of its goals came during the final 18 minutes.

“Unfortunately, it took us a little too long to figure out what works and what doesn’t work,” said Freeport Coach Marcia Wood. “We were too sloppy in the beginning and with a team like Yarmouth you can’t be sloppy.”

Yarmouth goalies Mary Kate Gunville, the sophomore starter, and Sarah Kirk, her junior backup, played well.

Gunville made eight saves, four of them on free-position shots.

“(Freeport) had opportunities, and they have great shooters,” Fallon said, “but Mary Kate has been doing an amazing job all season. Her positioning has been great and her confidence has gone up.”

Kirk, who played the first five minutes of the second half, made three saves and didn’t allow a goal.

Lane Simsarian scored four goals for the Clippers. Lilly Watson scored two goals and had two assists. Emma Torres scored a goal.

Emily Johnson scored three goals for Freeport. Chloe Davidson scored two goals and had an assist. Lily Johnston and Lizzy Martin each had a goal. Courtney Broderick had an assist.

The Clippers took a 10-goal lead with four minutes left in the first half to put the game into running time and maintained that edge for the first 22 minutes of the second half before the Falcons rallied to close the gap.

“The good thing about this team is no matter what (my players) never give up,” Wood said.
