Three games to watch in girls' soccer this week:
O’Bryant vs. West Roxbury at Millennium, Tuesday, 3:30 p.m.
O’Bryant is coming off an 8-1 win over Madison Park, and West Roxbury has had impressive wins over Snowden and Madison Park. Expect a tight match between two teams that sit in the middle of the pack in the City League.
New Mission vs. Dorchester at Roberts Field, Wednesday, 3:30 p.m.
New Mission lost its first game to City League best Latin Academy earlier this year, 1-0, but has steadily improved and logged victories over East Boston and Snowden. Dorchester has struggled scoring goals, so expect New Mission to keep moving in the right direction.
Brighton at Charlestown, Thursday, 3:30 p.m.
Brighton is chasing Latin Academy for the top spot in the City League. They survived a thriller against Dorchester last week, 2-1, and expect them to edge closer to Latin Academy when they play a Charlestown team that’s struggled to contain teams with a solid offensive attack.
