Latin Academy at South Boston, 3:30 pm, Tuesday

It will be interesting to see how Latin Academy responds to their 10-3 loss against Westwood after winning their first four games with ease.

Latin Academy’s defense is noted as the strongest part of their young team so South Boston coach Victor Pereira will hope that the speed of his players will match the skill.

English at Latin Academy, 3:30 pm, Wednesday

English was thought of as one of the best programs coming into the season and so far they have not disappointed. In their last two games, they’re offense has scored a combined 25 runs.

However, North division opponent Latin Academy should prove to be a good test for English in the early part of this season.

East Boston at Boston International, 3:30 pm, Thursday

Here’s a stat: Boston International hasn’t failed to score double-digit runs once this season.

It’s going to be a hard game for an East Boston team that has yet to score more than 7 runs and whose only win has come against O’Bryant.
