These neighboring schools will be sure to bring the intensity Monday afternoon. Both sit in the middle of the City League.

O’Bryant won its first league game, 6-0 over Charlestown, but lost to a strong East Boston team 5-1 and tied Latin Academy 1-1.

Madison Park dropped its first two games to Brighton and West Roxbury, but beat Boston English 2-0.
