Three games to watch in volleyball this week:
East Boston at Latin Academy, 3:15 p.m. Tuesday
A battle of teams at the top of the City League’s North Division. Latin Academy is undefeated in league play, while East Boston has only lost twice. They played earlier this year and Latin Academy took all three sets, so expect the Jets to come back with a vengeance.
O’Bryant at Burke, 3 p.m. Wednesday
O’Bryant is on top of the City League’s South Division, posting five wins in league play. Burke has won two league games but has struggled against the better teams. This match will definitely be close.
Brighton vs. Boston International at East Boston, 4:15 p.m. Thursday
Brighton and Boston International have both struggled this year in the City League North. Although they are both near the bottom, expect this match to be a great one. Brighton got its first win over South Boston earlier this season, while Boston International is still on the hunt for its first.
