A.C. Flora clawed back from a 3-goal deficit late in the second half to defeat Christ Church 12-11 and claim a spot in Saturday’s boys AAAA-A lacrosse state championship game at Chapin. The Falcons will face Bishop England in a 6:00 pm start.

Head coach Mickey Purdy has ingrained a tough, play-to-the-final-horn mindset into his Falcon team, never more evident than in Wednesday’s dramatic, come-from-behind Upper State championship win over the Cavaliers when Jack Sparrow tied the game with just over a minute left, setting the stage for freshman standout William King’s game-winner with only 19.7 seconds left on the clock.
