It was a challenge third seeded Burlington City was ready to take on. The Blue Devils had the honor to travel to the second seeded Rams from Riverside participating in the semifinals of the S.J. Group 1 bracket. Both teams had players who they have depended on all season long and those players would step up their game in order to advance to the finals. Riverside's David Laury was dominating on the boards and gave the Blue Devils problems all game long. His game high 39 points would not be enough as Mike Morris and Kareem Diggs came up big down during the final quarter. Burlington City would finally pull away from Riverside and post a 73-68 victory over the Rams.

Riverside's quest to add another basketball trophy to their school’s display area ended at the Group 1 state championship game. The Rams, with their impressive victory against Middlesex in the semi-finals, were looking for the opportunity to take home the state title against the Bloomfield Tech Spartans. Today’s challenge was no different than all of the other ones they faced though out the season, but Bloomfield’s strength and size proved to be too much for the Lady Rams to overcome their early first half deficit. Riverside would never lead in this state finals game being played at the Ritacco Center at Toms River North High. Despite Sabra Wrice scoring her 2,000th point in her high school career, the Lady Rams’ exciting season ended with their 71-59 defeat to Bloomfield Tech.

Delran’s early success running the ball gave their home crowd a lot to cheer about during the first half of this game. Anthony Riess made the most of his carries, especially his 65-yard touchdown run in the first quarter that highlighted Delran’s 20-6 victory over the Rams.
