Wiring has become disconnected

New to this forum, new to this house, new to automated (in this case Rain Bird) sprinkler systems. Hopefully this is a simple question.

Once we (the backflow tester and I) got the system up and running, one of the nine zones is not working. Simplest guess as to why: two wires in the valve box (only one valve in this "stand alone" box) have become disconnected. Manual operation of the valve is fine, but I'd like to be 'nine for nine.'

Controller is a Rain Bird ESP-Me "enhanced modular controller."

Photo shows the problem wires. Any education you can provide as to getting these two connected correctly would be most appreciated.
