Delbarton, which currently holds a 15-1-1 overall record and a 9-0-1 Gordon Conference record, earned the top seed for the Gordon Cup.

The tournament is slated to get underway on Thursday with the first round matchups. Delbarton will take on a fellow area team, when it faces eighth-seeded Pope John on Thursday at 4 p.m. at SportsCare Arena.

Pope John, on the other hand, qualified for the Gordon Cup for the first time in two seasons. It finished the regular season 11-7-2 with a 6-2 record in the Gordon-National Division. The two teams met on Jan. 6, which was a 2-1 win for Delbarton.
