O’Bryant vs. Latin Academy at White Stadium, Friday, 3 p.m.

This is the key matchup of the season. In the City League South, Latin Academy and O’Bryant are tied for first place at 6-0. Expect it to be a battle for the ages when these two powerhouses meet.

Madison Park vs. Brighton at White Stadium, Friday, 6:30 p.m.

Madison Park is two games behind Brighton for first place in the City League North, but Brighton (6-0) has yet to lose. After opening the season 0-2, Madison Park has won four straight and has a lot of momentum. Watch Brighton’s electrifying senior quarterback Jalen Apperwhite as he tries to pick through a stingy Madison Park defense.

Burke vs. South Boston at Saunders Field, Friday, 3:30 p.m.

Both teams are looking for their first win of the season. South Boston has struggled to put up points, while Burke’s defense has struggled to stop teams. Expect both teams to turn things around and play an evenly matched game.
