Fairfield and Warrior Run played to a scoreless first half, but the deadlock was broken early in the second half by Hannah Logue.

Fairfield has now outscored its three state playoff foes, 18-3.
Fairfield (23-1) will take on District 7 champion Shady Side Academy in the title game. Shady Side defeated fellow District 7 foe Greensburg Central Catholic, 2-1, on Tuesday night.

The only goal came late in the first half when Dominic Martz scored on a loose ball in front of the Warriors' goal. The District 11 champions took that lead into the break and then held onto it in the second half to book its spot in Friday's championship game against District 3 champion Lower Dauphin. Lower Dauphin defeated Cathedral Prep in overtime on Tuesday night, 2-1.
Gettysburg finished 24-4.
