Brighton at Boston English at Rogers Park, 3:30 p.m., Monday

After winning a rematch of last year’s city championship against Latin Academy, Boston English is playing like the confident young squad that it is.

English has a right to be confident, too – it has the second-best defense in the City League.

While Brighton has the worst defense in the North Division, it should go into this game with some momentum after a 10-9 win against Madison Park.

O’Bryant at East Boston at East Boston Stadium, 3:30 p.m., Thursday

East Boston continues to try to separate itself from Boston International in the Central Division, but O’Bryant isn’t far behind both teams in the standings.

After a tough 12-2 loss to Latin Academy, the Tigers should go into this game with a chip on their shoulder.

Latin Academy at Boston International at Fallon Field, 3:30 p.m., Friday

Both squads suffered tough losses last week to division foes, with Latin Academy falling to English, 3-2, in extra innings and Boston International losing to East Boston, 7-1.

The city tournament is getting closer, so expect some intensity in this one.
