Four teams changed places in this week’s HNIB Vermont D2 Top 5 poll. No. 1 Woodstock (17-0-1) was not one of them.

The Wasps picked up two more convincing wins, knocking off Lyndon Institute, 5-1, and routing St. Johnsbury, 8-2. Woodstock looks to cap an unbeaten regular season Saturday at Burlington.

No. 2 Mt. Mansfield and No. 3 Harwood swap spots.

Mt. Mansfield edged Harwood, 3-1, and Northfield, 1-0, and finishes up Wednesday at Milton and Saturday against Colchester.

Harwood tied North Country, 4-4, after the loss to Mt. Mansfield. The Highlanders close at Milton Saturday.

No. 4 Lyndon Institute sandwiched wins against Missisquoi, 3-1, and Hartford, 4-3, around the loss to Woodstock. Lyndon faces North Country and Northfield in its final regular-season games.

No. 5 Milton was upset by Hartford, 3-2, but rebounded with a 3-0 whitewash of St. Johnsbury. The Yellowjackets are home to Mt. Mansfield and North Country on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, and travel to Harwood Saturday.
