The North Fork’s three high school boys soccer teams are all scheduled to kick off the playoffs on Wednesday.

Mattituck (12-3-1), the League VII champion, earned the top seed in Suffolk County Class B and the right to host No. 4 Southampton (10-6) in a semifinal. During the regular season, the Tuckers defeated Southampton twice, 4-1 and 1-0. Mattituck won five of its last six games, and Southampton has taken three of its last four.

The other semifinal will pit No. 3 Hampton Bays (10-5-1) against No. 2 Center Moriches (12-4).

In the Class C semifinals, No. 3 Greenport/Shelter Island (6-8-2) is matched against No. 2 Southold (12-4), which won both regular-season meetings between the teams, 1-0 and 3-0. Southold closed out the regular season by winning seven of its last eight matches, the sole loss coming to defending state champion Port Jefferson.

Top-seeded Port Jefferson (15-0), the League VIII champion, will host No. 4 Pierson/Bridgehampton (7-8-1) in the other semifinal.

All of the semifinal games will start at 2:30 p.m.
