Phil Anastasia: No. 1 vs. No. 2, Part 1

No. 1 Gloucester Catholic plays No. 2 St. Augustine in the finals of the Tom Heinkel Memorial Tournament at Bishop Eustace at 3:45 p.m. on Friday.

This is a makeup of a game that was rained out on April 16. On that day, Gloucester Catholic beat Malvern Prep and St. Augustine beat Bishop Eustace in the tournament semifinals in the morning.

They tried to play the final and consolation games but the rain was torrential. Gloucester Catholic had a 4-1 lead in the third but the title game will be replayed from the start.

Gloucester Catholic is 15-1. St. Augustine is 11-1.

The team could meet twice more. They have a regular-season game scheduled for later this month, and they also could clash in the Diamond Classic.

They won't meet in the state tournament as the Rams are in Non-Public B and the Hermits in Non-Public A.
