By By Brandon Parker
After games on Sunday, June 3
It's down to the final four, meaning a state champion will be decided this week. Along with the usual suspects remaining (Don Bosco Prep, which is now No. 38 in the POWERADE FAB 50, and Gloucester Catholic), two teams to watch are Delbarton, which knocked off Seton Hall Prep for a spot in the Non-Public North A final against Don Bosco, and Hillsborough, which beat Hunterdon Central to continue its improbable postseason run.
Here are this week's rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):
1. Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey) 23-3 (1) Ironmen beat St. Joseph (Mont.) 2-0 to advance to Non-Public North A final against Delbarton on Tuesday.
2. Gloucester Catholic 24-4 (3) Rams downed Bishop Eustace 4-0 to set up matchup with St. Augustine Prep in Non-Public South A final.
3. Delbarton (Morristown) 21-6 (7) Knocked off Seton Hall Prep to advance to Non-Public North A final against top-ranked Don Bosco Prep.
