Dominion High School players celebrate after overcoming a halftime deficit to defeat host Western Albemarle 14-10 in the Virginia Class 4 girls' lacrosse state championship game.

A dominant second half propelled Dominion High School's girls' lacrosse team to their second state championship in the last three years June 26 in Crozet.

Trailing host Western Albemarle by three goals at halftime in the 2021 Virginia Class 4 state final, Dominion produced a 6-0 run in the second half to take control on its way to a 14-10 victory.

The Titans (14-0) prevailed in each of their 13 games leading up to Saturday's state final by double-digit margins.

Dominion outscored its five postseason opponents by a combined total of 85-21, claiming the Region 4C tournament championship along the way.

The Titans have won state championships in consecutive contested seasons -- the 2020 spring sports season was cancelled due to COVID-19. Dominion also defeated Western Albemarle 15-11 in the 2019 state final.
