Teams for this season’s City League championships have been announced. Semifinals for girls' volleyball and boys’ and girls’ soccer will kick off Monday afternoon while each sport's finals will be played on Wednesday.
Top seed Latin Academy (12-0) will look to defend its title as last years City League champion when they face off against an English (9-2) team that was second in the City League South Division.
On the other side, No. 2 O’Bryant (12-0) will also take an undefeated record against No. 4 Madison Park (9-3), which lost two of its last three regular season matches.
Both games are at Burke High School, starting with Latin Academy against English at 3 p.m. and finishing with O'Bryant against Madison Park at 5 p.m.
Top seed Dorchester (12-0-1) will play a Burke team that’s coming off an impressive 8-1 victory over Boston International to gain a playoff berth.
Burke however will have its hands full with Dorchester; a team that failed to lose this year and tied against Madison Park, 1-1. Madison Park (11-0-2), second ranked and last year's defending champions, will play third seeded East Boston (9-2-2) to decide what this year's championship matchup will be.
Both games start at 3:30 p.m. on Monday. Dorchester and Burke will play at English High School, while Madison Park and East Boston will play at White Stadium.
Top seed Latin Academy (10-0-2) will play fourth ranked O’Bryant (9-1-2) starting 3:30 p.m. at Madison Park’s lower field.
Parallel to this action, second ranked New Mission (10-1-2) will square off against East Boston (11-2) 3:30 p.m. at Madison Park’s upper field.
East Boston is last year's defending champions so expect some great matchups when these teams all clash Monday afternoon.
