Hodgson (2-1) at St. Elizabeth (2-0), 4 p.m. The Vikings’ bats exploded in their first two games. They will attempt to keep the offense humming as they start a busy week against stiffer competition.

Tuesday

Archmere (3-0) at Newark Charter (2-1), 3:45 p.m. The Auks travel to Newark for a key Diamond State Athletic Conference matchup. Archmere has scored an average of five goals per game in the early season, but the Patriots have allowed just three in their three contests.

Padua (2-0) at Caesar Rodney (2-0), 4 p.m. These two longtime rivals met last spring in the Division I state championship match. The teams meet every year, and the games are usually tense affairs. The Pandas have scored 15 times in two games, the Riders 13. Expect the scoring average to drop after this one.

St. Elizabeth (0-1) at Caravel (3-0), 6 p.m.

Wednesday

Ursuline (1-2) at Mount Pleasant (1-1), 3:30 p.m.

Thursday

Friday

Ursuline at Appoquinimink (1-2), 3:45 p.m. This contest pits two talented teams that have opened with extremely difficult schedules. Fatigue could be an issue. Ursuline is playing for the second time in three days, while the Jaguars hit the pitch for the third time this week.

St. Elizabeth at A.I. DuPont, 4:30 p.m.

Padua at Caravel, 6 p.m. Soccer fans across Delaware are in for a treat as the No. 1 teams in Division I and Division II take to the turf at Bob Peoples Stadium. The matchup that could decide the outcome is any of the Pandas’ prolific scorers vs. the Buccaneers’ stone wall of a goalkeeper, Sydney Keld.

Saturday

Archmere at Wilmington Friends, 11 a.m.

Padua at Cape Henry Collegiate (Va.), 4 p.m.
