STONINGTON — Ellie Korinek scored a pair of goals as Stonington High advanced to the ECC tournament field hockey championship game with a 3-1 win against Fitch in the semifinals Tuesday.

Stonington, the No. 3 seed, will host top-seeded East Lyme in the title game Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

The two teams also played to a scoreless tie in last year's ECC tournament championship game.

Korinek scored her first goal 3:38 into the game. A shot by Maddie Mendez went through the keeper's feet where Korinek knocked it across the goal line.

Her second goal came with 4:33 left in the game when she converted a pass from Olivia Monte on the left post.

Kaira Wiltshire scored Stonington's other goal in the first five minutes of the second half when she lifted a rebound of a shot by Sarah Flakus past the Fitch goalie

Stonington outshot No. 3 Fitch, 12-10. Goalie Claire Evans made eight saves. Fitch is 8-8-1.

East Lyme moved to the title game with a 5-1 win against Killingly in the other semifinal Tuesday.
