Latin Academy at New Mission, 3:30 p.m. Monday

While Latin Academy is no doubt the gold standard for girls softball in the city league, New Mission is on the rise this season and could pull off the upset.

The Titans, who are coached by boys’ basketball coach Cory McCarthy, inherited athletes from Boston Community Leadership Academy this year. And it has not paid off more than in softball, where 12 of the teams 18 players are from BCLA.

Dorchester at West Roxbury, 3:30 p.m. Wednesday

Coached by football coach Rich Moran, Dorchester sits atop the South division with Latin Academy in the city league after starting the season with a 24-13 win against Madison Park.

They will look to continue their success against a young West Roxbury team on Wednesday.

Snowden at South Boston, 3:30 p.m. Thursday

Snowden has got its bats going early this year with a 16-4 season-opening victory against Fenway.

South Boston is looking for its first win of the season behind senior infielder Sydney Cunningham, who returned to the lineup last week after suffering a season-ending injury in the fourth game of the season last year.
