This game figures to be a matchup of teams with different strengths.

Hammonton traditionally features a strong running game and this season is no different.

Meanwhile, Moorestown relies on the pass. Quarterback Andrew Lisa, who has thrown for more than 2,000 yards, is headed to the University of Pennsylvania.

But Hammonton features its best passing game in years with quarterback Christian Mortellite, who has completed nearly 70 percent of his passes and thrown for 10 touchdowns.

Moorestown comes off an impressive quarterfinal performance, beating Oakcrest 34-7 as Lisa threw for 255 yards and two touchdowns last Friday.

Hammonton struggled in its 24-10 quarterfinal win over Kingsway Regional. The Blue Devils scored twice in the final nine minutes to pull away.

Hammonton is No. 7 in The Press Elite 11. With a win tonight, the Blue Devils will reach the Group III final for the third time in four years. Hammonton won the title in 2009.

Keys to victory: Hammonton needs to slow Moorestown's passing game. The easiest way to do that is control the ball and the clock with a powerful ground game and timely passes from Mortellite.
