BERNARDS TOWNSHIP – Thursday's NJSIAA state Group 3 girls' lacrosse final between Shawnee and West Morris Mendham at Ridge High was postponed because of lightning and rescheduled for 3 p.m. Friday.

The game was supposed to start at 7 p.m., but the lightning began around 6:30, when the teams cleared the turf field.

Shawnee (20-1) is ranked No. 1 in South Jersey by the Inquirer after Monday's 7-6 victory in the South Jersey Group 3 final over previously unbeaten Moorestown.

The Renegades (20-1) are ranked fourth in the state by laxpower.com, and Mendham (21-1) is No. 3.
