Boston English (4-2) at South Boston (5-1), 4 p.m., Monday:

English, coming off its biggest win of the year against Burke (75-41), will look to break South Boston’s five-game win-streak.

South Boston has only lost to the undefeated Fenway Panthers, and will look to break an English defense that hasn’t been easy on any team, allowing only 33.2 points-a-game.

CASH (0-3) at O’Bryant (6-0), 4 p.m., Wednesday:

Two teams on the opposite ends of the standings meet with the common goal of getting a win.

Even though CASH is still looking for their first win of the season and its second game to hit double-digit scoring, it will be worth seeing how the Tigers respond to their closest contest of the season against Boston English (44-38). They’ll need to be able to do so if they hope to compete with Fenway.

Latin Academy (2-1) at East Boston (0-3), 4:30 p.m., Friday:

East Boston will need to find a way to get their offense rolling against the Dragons given that they currently have the second worst offense in the city league.

It’s still early in the season but a win against a Latin Academy team carrying momentum after a 3-point win against Madison Park would be a good way to start.
