East Boston at Madison Park, 4 p.m. Monday
Both have one loss and sit behind Latin Academy in the North division. So second place is not only on the line, a trip to the city tournament at the end of October could be as well.
O'Bryant at Boston English, 4 p.m. Tuesday
Undefeated English will look to flex its muscle against one of the best teams in the city, O'Bryant, which is also playing extremely well and has only lost to Latin Academy this year.
O'Bryant coach Trudy Fisher has tremendous respect for the English program and says English is one of the most difficult places to play in the city.
O'Bryant at Madison Park, 4 p.m. Friday
These two schools not only abut each other, they also met in the semifinals of the city championships last year.
The Tigers defeated the Cardinals 3-1 in the city tournament before losing to Latin Academy in the finals.
Madison Park doesn't have the Edwards twins this year, but will be extremely motivated to beat its rival no matter what.
