There’s a lot of familiarty between Ridge and Bridgewater-Raritan. They’re Skyland Conference Delaware Division mates, and they even met in the Somerset County Tournament semifinals.

The Red Devils have won all three games, and in all three matchups, have scored first.

That’s a trend the 7th-seeded Panthers (15-12) hope to reverse in Saturday’s North Jersey, Section 2, Group 4 quarterfinal round, when they face 2nd-seed Ridge (23-3) for a fourth time in 2022.

That game can be heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio, with Mike Pavlichko calling all the action from Basking Ridge. First pitch is set for 2:00, with pregame at 1:45; click here to listen live.

Ridge won the first meeting in mid-April, 10-2, an odd game that spanned more than one day, thanks to weather. The Red Devils won again 3-1 in the Somerset County Tournament semifinals, and 5-3 just a week later.
