The top-seeded Millers advance to the GNT championship game, where they will play second-seeded Seton Hall Prep Saturday afternoon in Belleville. Before that, Millburn will host Seton Hall Prep in a regular-season conference game on Wednesday.

Richie Schiekofer went 3-for-4 with an RBI and three stolen bases and winning pitcher Connor Lally was 2-for-2 for Millburn (19-2), which scored single runs in the second, third and fourth innings and two in the fifth.

The Millers and Cougars will face each other for a fourth time in the opening round of the NJSIAA Section 2, Group 4 state tournament next Monday.
