The Lower Cape May girls basketball team will vie for a trip to the South Jersey title game for only the second time in program history.
When the South Jersey Group II girls basketball tournament seedings were released, many local fans pointed to the possibility of a dream semifinal matchup between two local rivals.
That dream is now reality.
Lower Cape May, the top seed in the bracket, and Middle Township, the No. 4 seed, have each won their first two state playoff games and will face each other on Friday, with the winner advancing to the South Jersey championship game.
Friday’s game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip in Lower Cape May’s home gymnasium. It will be broadcast live on 98.7 FM radio.
