Latin Academy at Excel, 4:30 p.m. Tuesday
Latin Academy is in third place in the North division with a 6-3 record behind Fenway and South Boston (10-2). Even if the Dragons can’t make the city tournament by beating South Boston, they would still love to avenge a seven-point loss to the Knights in the first meeting between the two teams on Jan. 16.

Boston English at New Mission, 4:30 p.m. Wednesday
Boston English sits behind New Mission in the South division standings and probably can’t eclipse the Titans for a spot in the city tournament. But they can make some waves in this final regular season game of the year and build up some confidence going into the state tournament.

New Mission on the other hand will look for one final tuneup before battling in the city tournament. Which it will need if it wants to take out favorites O’Bryant and Fenway.

West Roxbury at Dorchester, 4:30 p.m. Wednesday
A victory in this final regular season game would end West Roxbury’s season on a respectable note, finishing 7-5 overall on the year and one-game above .500 in the league.

Dorchester, on the other hand, would love to close out the season with a solid victory over a strong team.
