Girls’ Game to Watch

Hopkinton at Medfield, Thursday, 3:30 p.m.:

The Hopkinton girls are looking for the regular season sweep after the Warriors bested them in the Division 2 South final last season. With two of the state’s best goalies — Hopkinton’s Jaclyn Chirco and Medfield’s Sarah Honan — don’t expect a high-scoring game.
