After an impressive victory over Latin Academy last Thursday, Boston International hopes to win against a CASH team that went 10-3 last season.
First year coach Miguel Cura already has his first win under his belt for International, and midfielder Emerson Cabral already also has his first goal of the season which came at a pivotal point during their Latin Academy game.
Expect some fast paced soccer when these two teams collide on Tuesday.
West Roxbury vs. Madison Park at Madison Park, 3:30 p.m. Wednesday
Last week West Roxbury’s Sam Kifl scored a hat trick as the Raiders won 3-2 against South Boston. This week they’ll travel to Madison Park to play a team that boasted a 16-2 record last year.
Madison Park coach Joao Gomes believes his team’s strongest points are their defense and goalie, so Kifl and the rest of his West Roxbury team will have to generate some offense in order be competitive.
Dorchester vs. English at English, 3:30 p.m. Friday
Boston English lost their first game of the season 2-1 in a thriller against South Boston last Thursday, but are now looking ahead to Dorchester.
It will be English’s first home game of the year, and they’ll have their hands full with a Dorchester squad that went 11-4-1 last season. Veteran coach Tim Lavin is also in his tenth year coaching Dorchester.
Expect some great, clean soccer as both teams are well coached.
