Head to Head match-ups and Record vs Sweet 16.
5-29-19 It’s Sectional Semi-Final Day in NJ. Eight Sweet 16 match-ups on the schedule. Let’s take a deeper dive into head to head match-ups this season… Bridgewater Raritan and Old Bridge played twice this season and the result was two lopsided wins for the defending champs. In the 4 sets, the losing totals for the Panthers were 14, 20, 15, and 17. A clear matchup advantage to the Knights. Livingston and St. Peter’s went head to head once this season on 5/2 with the Marauders taking down the Lancers 25-21 and 25-13. Livingston brings in a 1-9 record against the S16 so it will be an uphill climb against a very strong SPP squad. Sterling and Washington Township went to battle very early in the season with Sterling emerging as a straight set winner. We anticipate this match will be as close as they come. Here are the records of semi-finalists against the Sweet 16 teams during the regular season… Old Bridge 8-2, Southern 7-2, Fair Lawn 6-2, Bloomfield 3-1, St. Peter’s Prep 2-1, Sterling 2-1, Hunterdon Central 4-3, Bridgewater Raritan 6-6, Ridge 2-3, Clearview 1-2, Washington Township 1-3, Harrison 1-7, Livingston 1-9, West Caldwell Tech 0-1, South Brunswick 0-2, and Passaic did not play a Sweet 16 team this season 0-0. Good luck to ALL!
