Roundup: Boston’s best begin chase for a title

The Boston City League soccer tournament starts Monday, weather permitting, with the girls at Madison Park and the boys at White Stadium. In the boys’ semifinals, East Boston, which finished second in the regular season, will face third-place Brighton at 6 p.m. The Jets are 9-2-1 while the Bengals are 11-2.

Despite being slotted behind Eastie, a Brighton win wouldn’t be an upset. The two played last week with Brighton winning, 5-0. East Boston coach Lorenzo Di Benedetto said that many key players for that earlier game were missing and he expects his team to be at full strength for the playoffs.

The Bengals’ strong roster includes the leading scorer in EMass, senior captain Rossel Cacho (28 goals and 26 assists). Sophomore midfielder Vinicius Cordeiro has 18 goals and 10 assists.

Junior keeper Jose Mata delivered six shutouts this fall. East Boston features senior midfielder Elmer Ventura and senior forward Marvin Melgar, a dynamic duo who have scored or assisted in nearly every game.

Freshman goalkeeper Edwin Avelar has had 11 shutouts this season.

In the opener at White Stadium, first-place Madison Park takes on fourth-place finisher Boston International at 3:30 p.m. For the girls, first-place Latin Academy will play fourth-place O’Bryant on the upper field at Madison Park, while second-place New Mission will play third-place East Boston at 3:30 p.m. on the lower field. Both the boys’ and girls’ finals are scheduled for Wednesday.

In volleyball, the city semifinals are Monday at Burke. At 3:30 Latin Academy plays Burke followed at 5 p.m. by O’Bryant against Madison Park.
