East Boston at Brighton, 3:15 p.m. Monday

Coming off a five-set win against South Boston last week, Brighton is poised to take on a formidable East Boston squad in its home gym.

East Boston is nipping at the heels of Latin Academy in the North Division. It lost the head-to-head match against the Dragons but is still in position to qualify for the city tournament.

Boston International at Charlestown, 3:30 p.m. Monday

Both teams are playing under new coaches and are still looking for their first win of the season.

A win would be a shot in the arm for either program.

Madison Park at O’Bryant, 4 p.m. Friday

Sparks always fly when these neighboring schools meet.

O’Bryant won the first meeting between these squads Oct. 4 by a score of 3-0 and is still riding high after beating English a day later.

But Madison Park keeps getting better and better, and could knock off the Tigers.

O’Bryant sits atop the South Division while Madison Park is in third in the North Division, fighting with East Boston for the second slot in the city tournament.
