Cherry Hill East, the No. 14 seed, will meet No. 9 seeded Moorestown in the boys' championship of the South Jersey Soccer Coaches Association Tournament.
Both won semifinal matches Sunday at Eastern.
For the second straight game East advanced by winning in penalty kicks, ousting second-seeded Washington Township.
When the South Jersey Group 3 girls’ soccer tournament began, there weren’t many predictions that had Lower Cape May in the finals.
The Tigers finished third in their division, the Cape National Division I and were seeded fourth in Group 3.
Yet after Monday’s 2-1 upset of top-seeded Timber Creek, Lower Cape May won’t be able to sneak up on anybody, including Moorestown, its opponent in Thursday’s sectional final.
The Triton boys' soccer team got off to a 1-3 start; however, the Mustangs have won their last six games in a row, including a 1-0 victory over Delsea in overtime.
They are 4-1 in the Olympic Conference Patriot Division. - Bill Iezzi
What a wild boys’ soccer race it is in the Colonial Conference Liberty Division. Haddon Heights is the defending champion and once again a major threat. The other major contenders are Haddonfield, West Deptford and based on early results, it would be difficult to count out Sterling.
Heights and West Deptford played to a scoreless draw on Tuesday, in another example of the great parity that exists.
Already Heights has tied Sterling and West Deptford and beaten Haddonfield. Meanwhile West Deptford has lost to Haddonfield and Sterling and tied Heights. Haddonfield has beaten West Deptford and Sterling while losing to Heights. And Sterling has the win over West Deptford and tie with Heights plus the loss to Haddonfield.
If the Haddon Heights boys' soccer team can win its next six games, it will have given head coach Jeff Eppright a significant accomplishment: 300 victories in a carreer that spans 24 years.
The Garnets are 2-1-1 and in their last game they defeated arch rival Haddonfield, 2-0, a confidence builder.
If they are able to run the table against West Deptford, Overbrook, Audubon, Collingswood, Sterling and Highland, Eppright will have his milestone on Oct. 10 at Haddon Heights. - Bill Iezzi
Since Steve Keane has returned to goalkeeping duties for Clearview this season, the Pioneers are 3-0 with two shutouts.
After a solid sophomore season in the cage, Keane sat on the sideline last year with an inujury. He said he is not feeling the effects of a torn ACL and the shutouts seem to be evidence.
Last year Clearview won the Tri-County Royal Division championship. -Bill Iezzi

Laurel Falana, daughter of Haddonfield boys' soccer coach Joe Falana, scored the lone goal for the Bulldogs in a 1-0 win Monday over Colonial Conference Liberty Division rival West Deptford.
After a throw-in by Olivia Blaber, Falana headed the ball into the net with 9 minutes, 49 seconds remaining in the game.
Falana's father can't make it to all of her games; however, he has helped her to hone her skills over the years.
The Haddonfield boys' soccer program won its 600th game Thursday when the Bulldogs beat Audubon, 8-1.

"The program's numbers speak for themselves," Haddonfield athletic director Lefty Banos said. "It can be considered as one of the most successful programs in South Jersey history.
