WOODBRIDGE — No. 2 seed Staples field hockey team blanked No. 3 Glastonbury 2-0 in the Class L State Tournament semifinals at neutral site Amity High on Tuesday afternoon.

Wreckers’ goals were scored by Mary Stevens and Leah Larit. 

Staples did not allow a Glastonbury shot on goal and had six shots at the opposing cage.

With the victory, the Wreckers earn a matchup with familiar FCIAC foe Darien, the No. 1 seed, in the championship game to be played at Wethersfield High on Saturday, Nov. 18 (time to be determined). (Game schedules are subject to change; click for the latest CIAC updates.)
