In the 13U Boys Division, the Texas Mustangs will meet 24 Lax (N.Y.) in the championship game.

Ethan Walling had two goals in the win.

24 Lax rallied from a 4-2 halftime deficit to beat Mad Dog (N.J.) 7-5 in the other semifinal. Giancarlo Percorale tied the game at 5-5 with 6:06 to play and then scored the go-ahead goal with 3:13 remaining when he picked up a loose ball in front of the cage and fired home the shot over his shoulder.

In the 13U Girls Division, CT Grizzlies 2024 Navy, Hero’s 2024 Green (Md.), NEMS 2024 (Md.) and Yellow Jackets 2024 Wiener (N.Y.) have advanced to the semifinals. The core of the Yellow Jackets squad won the 12U division at last year’s US Lacrosse Nationals. The Yellow Jackets will meet NEMS in one semifinal at 9 a.m. while the CT Grizzlies and Hero’s will meet in the other semifinal in a rematch of a pool play game that ended in a 7-7 tie after Paige Kawa scored with just 13 seconds remaining.

In the 14U Boys Division, 3d Georgia, Igloo Black Diamond (N.Y.), Looney’s 2023 Green (Md.) and Yeti 2023 Blue (Ill.) have reached the semifinals. 3d and Igloo Black Diamond have been dominant so far, each allowing just a combined five goals in their three victories. 3d will meet Yeti in one semifinals while Igloo battles Looney’s in the other.

In the 14U Girls Division, two of the finalists from last year’s 13U championship at the US Lacrosse Nationals are among the finalists. The Yellow Jackets 2023 Colbert team won the 12U title in 2017 and the 13U title in 2018 playing as a part of the Igloo program. Last year, they knocked off Yellow Jackets 2023 Thorn in the final. Those two squads will be joined by Ultimate CC 2023 (Pa.) and AIM 2023 (N.J.) in the semifinals.

Ultimate, the only team to win every game in the division, plays Yellow Jackets Thorn while Yellow Jackets Colbert will play AIM. AIM went 0-2 in pool play, but won both of its bracket games, including a dramatic comeback to beat the Long Island Jesters United 9-8 in the quarterfinals. AIM trailed 8-3 before scoring six straight goals to post the victory on Emma Gioffre’s goal with 29 seconds remaining.
