The first month of the high school fall sports season comes to an end this week, and a few big matchups are on the docket. Archmere field hockey will try to snap a streak under the lights at Caravel before the Auks teams celebrate homecoming next weekend.

On the boys’ side, Salesianum soccer looks to rebound from its first loss of the season, while Saint Mark’s attempts to keep the positive results coming.
