Three more state final tickets were punched on Saturday and JSZ has you covered with highlights from all three games. Check back throughout the night for our full coverage!
Delbarton 38 Seton Hall Prep 23 | Non-Public A Semifinal
Ryan Trafford exploded for a season-high 220 yards scored a career-high four touchdowns to power the Green Wave to their first Non-Public championship game appearance since 2014. For Trafford – the Navy lacrosse commit – it was his fourth-career 200-plus yard game. Delbarton (10-1) got great performances from their offensive line, which plowed the way for nearly 300 yards on the ground, and the defense which came up with timely turnovers. Seton Hall Prep (5-7) saw their season come to an end after a great run to the semifinals. Julius Vicari broke a program record with his 249 receiving yards in the loss. Delbarton will face top-seed and two-time reigning champion Bergen Catholic in the state final on Tuesday, Nov. 28 at MetLife Stadium.
