There are six undefeated high school football teams left in South Jersey.

Two will play Saturday.

Fourth-seeded Buena Regional (9-0) will play at top-seeded Penns Grove (10-0) in a South Jersey Group I semifinal. Kickoff is at noon. The winner advances to next weekend’s South Jersey final.

Buena is trying to reach its first sectional final since it lost to West Deptford in the 2002 South Jersey Group II title game. Buena has won 11 straight, dating back to last season. The Chiefs have won eight of their nine games this season by at least double digits. Buena will try to control the ball and the game with its running attack.

Penns Grove is No. 11 in The Press Elite 11 ranking. Penns Grove lost to Paulsboro 34-24 in last year’s South Jersey Group I final. Penns Grove has won 17 of its last 18 games.

Buena Regional: Chris Doughty, RB, 91 carries for 1,178 yards and 19 touchdowns; Jaden Roberts, RB, 103 carries for 842 yards; Luke Santiago, QB, six touchdown passes.
