Dover (5-2) at Archmere (5-2), 3:45 p.m. Dover brings its tough defense to Claymont to meet the Auks. Archmere likes to give its scoreboard a workout, so this contest will be a contrast of styles.

Wednesday

Wilmington Friends (6-1) at Saint Mark’s (4-3), 3:45 p.m.

Tatnall (7-0) at Ursuline (5-1), 3:45 p.m. These Division II standouts meet on the grass at Serviam Field. Tatnall is the highest-scoring team in the state in terms of goals per game, and the Hornets also are among the stingiest, allowing just 3.6 goals per. The Raiders have been scoring almost at will, and they took powerhouse Cape Henlopen down to the wire a few weeks ago.
