Fitch (11-5-1) will have its hands full against the high-scoring East Lyme girls, who swept the season series from its Large Division rivals, scoring 17 goals each time. The Vikings (14-3) won 17-5 on April 18 and 17-9 on May 14.
Fitch rallied for a 9-8 win over Norwich Free Academy in Wednesday's semifinals while East Lyme defeated Stonington 12-6.
