Game of the week

Boy’s Lacrosse, St. John’s Prep (12-3) at Duxbury (13-5), Saturday, 10 a.m.: The Eagles are soaring, winners of five straight games in which they have scored an average of 13.5 goals per game. Duxbury, however, is fresh off a four-overtime victory against Lincoln-Sudbury and sits atop the Globe Top 20. This could be a preview of the state final, and will serve as an excellent tuneup for the tournament.
