West Roxbury vs. Brookline at Skyline Park, 4:00 p.m. Monday

After coming off a loss to Latin Academy, 4-2, Thursday, West Roxbury looks to gain some experience while playing a non-league game against Brookline.

So far this year Brookline’s 3-2-1 in the Bay State Conference, but after opening up their season with three straight wins, they haven’t captured a victory since.

O’Bryant vs. Snowden at White Stadium, 3:30 p.m. Tuesday

O’Bryant hasn’t had too much trouble finding the net this year. In their first game against Cathedral, they won 12-0 and against Charlestown they won 2-0. Their defense has also been a strong point thus far.

Snowden has had some tough games this year, and has logged a 1-3 record. Their first win came against West Roxbury 4-2, but lost their last game to Dorchester, 5-1.

Expect some good, up-tempo soccer when these two meet Tuesday afternoon.

Boston International vs. Randolph at Randolph, 4:00 p.m. Thursday

Boston International has emerged this season as a top contender in the City League. Right now they stand at 3-0 and have yet to give up a goal. Their last victory came on Thursday against East Boston, where they survived a thriller, 1-0.

But they will definitely be tested when they square off against a Randolph team for a non-league game. Randolph is 3-1 this year and has scored 18 goals on the season. Boston International’s stellar defense will be tested when these two clash at Randolph Thursday
