ROXBURY, NJ - (Note: A prior version of this story incorrectly said tomorrow's game was a state tournament championship contest.) The Roxbury High School girls lacrosse team on Tuesday can win a shot at a state tournament group championship. To get there, the team needs to defeat Summit, the top-seeded team in its group, in the 4 p.m. semi-final.

If that happens, the Gaels will move on to face either Chatham or Mendham in the group final on May 25.

The Gaels are seeded fifth in the 2018 NJSIAA North 2, Group 3 tournament. But seeding doesn't always predict outcomes, something proven by Roxbury on Friday when it defeated fourth-seeded Millburn 14-11 in state tournament play.

The score was much closer than the game on that occasion. Roxbury dominated Millburn on both sides of the ball for most of the game and controlled the draw..

Mellissa Murphy led the scoring with six goals. She was followed by Emma Karnitsky with four,  including her 200th career high school goal.

Roxbury goes into the Summit game with a 14-5 record. Summit is 15-3.

The Summit game will be on the Upper Turf Field at Summit High School.
