The Hawks have revenge in their minds while the Raiders want to get off to a good start with Padua coming up soon on their schedule.

Seaford at St. Elizabeth, 4 p.m. The Vikings finished last year with a 5-10 record and a home victory over the Blue Jays would be a great start to a better season. They beat Seaford last year, 1-0, to start the season, The Blue Jays were 2-12-1 last year.

Archmere at Concord, 3:45 p.m. The Auks look to rebound from a tough season last year that saw them go 4-8-3. Archmere opened 2013 with a 4-1 win over the Raiders last year but went 0-6-2 in their last 8 games. Concord was 6-9 last year.

Ss. Peter and Paul at St. Thomas More, 4 p.m. The Ravens had a decent season with a 7-6-2 record, with one of the ties coming against Ss. Peter and Paul. A win against a good out-of-state opponent would help St. Thomas More get off to a good start in a run at the tournament this year.

Middletown at Padua, 6:15 p.m. The Pandas are coming off one of their strongest seasons with a 12-4 record and a first-round loss in the tournament. A win over Middletown would help them return to postseason play. The Pandas won, 3-2, over a 6-7-2 Cavs team last season.
