After a relatively quiet first week with mild weather, this week in spring high school sports has a much busier slate, but the cold weather has already forced all of the games from Delaware involving Catholic schools to be postponed.. Bundle up before heading out, and, as always, make sure your game is still on the schedule.

For the games on the schedule, a few stand out.

Girls

Soccer

Tuesday

Padua (0-0) at Broad Run (Va.), 6 p.m.

Saint Mark’s (1-0) at Delaware Military (1-0), 6:30 p.m. Two of the top squads in Division II get together under the lights for an early season tussle. Ashley Hughes scored four times for the Seahawks in their season-opening win, while Maddie Schepers tallied a hat trick for the Spartans. Saint Mark’s defeated DMA, 3-0, in the quarterfinals of the state tournament last spring.

Saint Mark’s (3-0) at Archmere (1-0), 4 p.m. The Auks opened the season with a win over the defending state champions from Delaware Military, and the second game is no picnic, either.
