Stations that continue to run

My sprinkler pipe burst at the T yesterday. We repaired it and turned on each zone to let any dirt that got into the line run out. Everything was fine the repair held no leaks, but now one zone continues to run even though the system is turned off. It also makes this noise. I have to shut off the water from the street in order to get it to stop!!! Any suggestions?

The valve probably needs repair. Most likely a new diaphragm. Could be a rock in the valve from the broken pipe that's too big to flush out.
