The boys’ postseason tournaments will not begin this week, but eligibility and positioning will be on the line this week on the lacrosse and baseball fields. The lacrosse regular season ends on Saturday, while baseball must be finished by May 21.
A.I. duPont (2-10) at St. Elizabeth (5-7), 3:30 p.m. at Alapocas Run State Park
Archmere (10-3) at Tatnall (9-4), 3:45 p.m.
Ss. Peter and Paul at Archbishop Curley, 4 p.m.
Salesianum (10-3) at Caesar Rodney (13-1), 7 p.m. This is perhaps the game of the year between two Delaware teams. The Sals return to the state from Buffalo, N.Y., after two big wins over the weekend against highly regarded opponents. Caesar Rodney will be in a foul mood after suffering its first loss last week against Cape Henlopen. These teams are not strangers; they met in the regular season last year and again in the tournament semifinals.
St. Mark’s (5-7) at Polytech (6-7), 7 p.m.
Sanford (7-6) at St. Mark’s, 3:45 p.m.
St. Elizabeth at Hodgson (6-7), 4 p.m.
Archmere at Tower Hill (5-8), 5:15 p.m.
Ss. Peter and Paul vs. opponent to be determined. Site and time TBA.
Salesianum vs. Fairfield Prep (Ct.), 11 a.m. at Rutgers University, Piscataway, N.J.
McKean (2-11) at St. Thomas More (0-8), 4:30 p.m.
Salesianum (10-6) at St. Elizabeth (8-8), 4 p.m. The Vikings need a win either today at home against the Sals or Thursday at Mount Pleasant to ensure they are eligible for the state tournament. They always play the Sals close, such as in a 1-0 loss a week ago.
Salesianum at Sussex Tech (9-7), 4 p.m.
St. Elizabeth at Mount Pleasant (6-9), 4 p.m.
Archmere (11-6) at Polytech (9-7), 4 p.m. The Auks picked a fine time to go on a roll. They have won their last four and wrap up the regular season in Kent County against a Panthers team that is victorious in four of its last five and features some potent bats.
Delcastle (5-10) at St. Thomas More, 4 p.m.
St. Mark’s (14-3) at Cape Henlopen (14-2), 4:15 p.m. Lewes will be a good place to visit to start the weekend, and not because it’s home to a premier state park. The weekend’s opening attraction is taking place about a mile away, where the Spartans and Vikings meet in what could be a playoff preview. Both teams have thrown no-hitters this season – Cape has two.
Dickinson (3-10) at St. Mark’s (4-8), 3:30 p.m.
