Lake-Lehman, Scranton Prep and Dunmore have all clinched at least ties for divisional girls basketball titles this season.

In three different starting times, facing varying degrees of difficulty, each will try to make its outright championship official Friday night.

Lake-Lehman is up first and facing the most difficult test, playing on the road against a team with a winning division and overall record, Wyoming Area, in a 6:30 p.m. Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 game.

The Lady Knights, who are 10-1 in the division and 15-3 overall, are also finishing up the season without all-star forward and second-leading scorer Chase Purdy because of a serious knee injury.

Wyoming Area heads into its regular-season finale 7-4 and 12-9.

Scranton Prep (10-0, 15-3) looks to wrap up its fifth straight perfect Lackawanna League season and Division 1 championship when it plays at Delaware Valley (1-9, 3-14) at 6:45 in a Division 1-2 crossover game.

Dunmore’s opponent as it goes for a ninth straight Lackawanna Division 3 title does have a winning record, but Mid Valley (3-6, 10-9) has given no indication within the division that it is ready to slow down the Lady Bucks (10-0, 16-1).

Western Wayne has already clinched in Lackawanna League Division 2 and the Lackawanna Division 4 and WVC Division 1 races cannot be decided Friday night.

WVC Division 1 leader Wilkes-Barre Area (10-1, 16-2) has a key game at home against Dallas (5-6, 10-8).
