Seton Hall Prep 1 Delbarton 0 | Non-Public A North Final
Drew Ligotti’s goal with :48 seconds left in the first half proved to be the difference in a battle between two non-public rivals. Top-seeded Seton Hall Prep (19-0-1) continues on their magical season after weathering a second-half storm from Delbarton (17-3-1). Aidan Batista made eight saves in net for the Pirates, who won their eighth Non-Public A North sectional title. Seton Hall Prep will face CBA in the Non-Public A final Sunday at Kean University.
