The second week of spring high school sports is quite a bit busier than the first, although a few teams will be playing their opening games this week. There are some intriguing games in each sports, but for lacrosse fans, Saturday is the day worth waiting for. Three of the state’s top four teams are in action, two against each other, while the other welcomes a stout challenger.



Concord (0-1) at Saint Mark’s (2-0), 4 p.m.

Ss. Peter and Paul (0-1) at Queen Anne’s County, 5:30 p.m.


Archmere (2-0) at First State Military (1-2), 3:30 p.m.

Mount Pleasant (0-1) at Saint Mark’s, 4 p.m.


Ss. Peter and Paul at Stephen Decatur, 4 p.m.


Cape Henlopen (2-0) at Archmere, noon. The Vikings and Auks meet in the regular season for the first time since 2019, but the teams got together last June at Abessinio Stadium in a DIAA semifinal, a Cape win. Jacob Schell is off to a quick start for the Vikings, with seven goals in their first two games, while Archmere’s prolific offense features Drew Duncan and others.

Saint Mark’s at Wilmington Charter (0-2), 1 p.m.

Chaminade (N.Y.) at Salesianum (2-0), 1 p.m. The Sals welcome their first nationally ranked opponent to Abessinio Stadium when Chaminade makes the trip from Long Island. The Flyers were ranked ninth in the preseason by USA Lax Magazine, with the Sals in the “others receiving consideration.” A win could increase that consideration quite a bit.
