CAM­BRIDGE — Eight goals by Queen Anne’s County’s Chris Con­ner led the Lions to an 18-9 vic­tory over top-seeded Cam­bridgeSouth Dorch­ester Mon­day in the Class 2A/1A East Sec­tion II boys’ lacrosse fi­nal at Vik­ing Sta­dium.

The win gives No. 2 seed Queen Anne’s (10-3) a berth in Wed­nes­day’s Class 2A/1A East Re­gion fi­nal at South­ern of Anne Arun­del.

The Lions jumped ahead with five straight goals to start the game. Con­ner scored twice off passes from Paul Gill.

The Vik­ings came back with two goals from Micah Brooks. The first goal came by Brooks off re­bound from a Henry Rosano shot. Brooks scored the se­cond goal when he pow­ered his way through two de­fend­ers and shot in front of the crease to cut the deficit to 5-2.
