So far, 2014 has been a great year for the Wilmington High School girls basketball team.

The Lady Wildcats haven't dropped a game since 2013, a trend they hope to keep up on Tuesday night with the Middlesex League regular season title on the line.

Wilmington has ripped of 12 straight victories and haven't suffered a loss since a December 27 against Bedford.

On Tuesday night, the locals travel to Watertown to wrap up their regular season schedule. The game is a rematch of a January 14 tilt that Wilmington won by a 56-54 margin.

The latest contest has plenty on the line. Watertown enters the game with a 16-1 record overall, suffering just the loss to the Wildcats. Their record in Middlesex League play is 13-1.

Wilmington, meanwhile, boasts a 13-1 league record of its own and a 14-2 overall mark. So the winner of Tuesday's showdown will hop into first place in the league.

This is the first season for the Wildcats under new leadership. Head coach Jay Keane stepped down in the offseason. The team got off to a 2-2 start to the year with losses to Woburn and Bedford, but hasn't looked back since.
