weak water pressure at the end of the line

I have 4 zones in my sprinkler system. The last two sprinklers in one zone have nearly no water pressure. These sprinklers are the furthest from the pump out of all the sprinklers. I took al the sprinklers off in the zone and turned the system on hoping to flush anything out. There are 8 sprinklers in this zone. No elevation change. The water is rusty. Someone drove over the 1st sprinkler and cracked the pipe where it attaches to the elbow for the nipple. . I cut behind the crack and set a new elbow.Also the controller leaks water out of holes on the underside between the chamber.It leaks at a rate of about 4 gallons an hour. I
I just gave as much info as I can. The controller is at least 15 years old. I am neevous that I wont replace it with the right one.

You might considering sharing the make and model number of the controller.
