Though it certainly was not easy, the Stone Bridge Bulldogs found a way in Friday's 5A North Region championship game against host Massaponax in Fredericksburg.

Stone Bridge held Massaponax scoreless during the game's final 15 minutes, while Josh Lawyer and Joshua Breece produced touchdown runs to allow the Bulldogs to turn a nine-point deficit into a 27-21 victory.

The comeback win secures a second consecutive regional championship for the Bulldogs and earns them a repeat trip to the Virginia 5A state championship game. Stone Bridge will play in its seventh state final since 2005.

Stone Bridge's opponent in the 5A title game will be determined Saturday when Highland Springs hosts Norview in the 5A South final.

The state championship game kicks off at 12:07 p.m. Dec. 10 at Hampton University.
