A light schedule due to the Easter break is a memory for the girls’ high school teams. It’s a busy week on the fields and pitches, including a battle of unbeatens in soccer and a lacrosse matchup that could be wild.
St. Elizabeth (1-6) at Brandywine (7-1-1), 3 p.m.
Archmere (8-0) at St. Georges (2-6-1), 3:45 p.m.
St. Mark’s (4-3) at Ursuline (2-6), 3:45 p.m.
St. Mark’s at Delmarva Christian (7-2), 4:15 p.m.
Archmere at Caravel (7-0), 3:45 p.m. The two remaining unbeaten and untied teams in Division II meet on the turf at Caravel Academy. Archmere’s offense is the irresistible force, scoring more than five goals per game, while Caravel’s defense forms the immovable object. The Buccaneers have yet to give up a goal this season. The Auks gear up for the final weeks of the regular season, which include their toughest tests of the year.
Dover (4-5) at Ursuline, 3:45 p.m.
Delaware Military (5-4) vs. Padua (9-2), 3:30 p.m. at Hockessin Soccer Club
St. Mark’s vs. St. Elizabeth, 3:45 p.m. at St. Mark’s. The Vikings will be the home team in this one on what will be a very busy day on the St. Mark’s campus. At some point this afternoon, a spectator can watch this one, plus boys and girls lacrosse, softball and volleyball.
Dickinson (3-6-1) vs. St. Elizabeth, 3:30 p.m. at Dickinson
Wilmington Charter (8-0-1) at Archmere, 3:45 p.m. The winner of this game has the inside track to the Diamond State Athletic Conference championship. Each team will have one conference match remaining after this.

Ursuline (10-0) at Newark Charter (9-1), 3:45 p.m. Two of the top teams in Delaware square off after two weeks without games. The Patriots will have had 14 days to ponder their only loss, which came to Archmere. Expect a high-scoring, back-and-forth affair with the Raiders.
Wilmington Friends (2-7) at St. Mark’s, 4 p.m.
Caesar Rodney (5-4) at St. Thomas More, 4 p.m.
Padua (7-2) at Archmere (9-1), 5:15 p.m. Padua looks to return to the win column, but they have a tough road assignment against the Auks. It’s another matchup that features high-octane offenses, but two defenses that rarely let their opponents get into double figures.

Worcester Prep at Ss. Peter and Paul, 4 p.m.
St. Thomas More at Salisbury School, 4 p.m.

William Penn (10-3) at St. Elizabeth (7-3), 4 p.m. Two teams with potent bats get together at Canby Park, but it’s the pitching that could steal the show.
