On Wednesday, Sept. 21, The Inquirer’s top two South Jersey girls’ soccer teams will square off and more than just area supremacy will be on the line.

When Paul VI hosts Lenape 7 p.m. on Wednesday the two teams will be part of a fundraising event for cancer awareness.

It’s part of a soccer doubleheader, that includes three of the top four teams in South Jersey.

In the 5 p.m. opener, No. 4 Eastern meets Seneca. That is followed by the anticipated 7 p.m. nightcap when No. 1 Lenape takes on No. 2 Paul VI.

There will be free admission. Donations from a collection at the game and a 50/50 raffle along with proceeds from concessions, will be donated to the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society.

Lenape, the four-time defending state Group 4 champion, is ranked No. 1 in South Jersey, but Paul VI is No. 2.

In fact Paul VI and Lenape began the season by each playing two games in Maryland’s McDonogh Invitational.

Paul VI opened some eyes by beating McDonogh, 1-0. McDonogh, which was ranked No. 1 in the Baltimore area by the Baltimore Sun, then rebounded to beat Lenape, 2-0.

University of Virginia recruit Brittany Ratcliffe, who missed last season due to a knee injury, scored the goal for Paul VI against McDonogh. The Eagles also own a prestigious 2-1 overtime win over Eastern. Kristen Morawski scored the game-winner for Paul VI. Ratcliffe deposited her third goal in three games.
