Top-ranked Avon Old Farms (16-0-1) continues to roll as the schedule gets into the first month of February. In four of their last five wins, the Winged Beavers have won by a margin of four goals or more. They will face Westminster on Wednesday.

#2 Kimball Union (20-3-0) is the first prep team to reach 20 overall wins. Other than a loss to Stanstead Prep of Quebec, the Wildcats have taken care of buisness.

#3 Holderness (17-1-0) suffered its first loss to New Hampton, but then rattled off five straight wins, outscoring the opposition by an impressive 36-6 margin.

KUA and Holderness will meet twice in early February, at Holderness on February 2, and at Kimball Union on February 10 in what should be two great games.

Cushing (17-2-0) is up to #4 in this latest HNIB News Boys Prep Top 15. The Penguins have been red-hot as of late, shutting out their last four opponents by a 27-0 margin. They are at Tilton on Wednesday.

Since a loss to Cushing back on January 10, #5 Salisbury (12-4-1) is 5-0-1 in its last six tilts, including an impressive 5-1 win over Kent. The Knights face Trinity Pawling on Wednesday.

#6 Brunswick (18-4-2) drops a bit this week. The Bruins won just one of four games at the McPherson Tournament in Canada over the weekend against top-flight competition. Lawrenceville is up next on Wednesday.

After these six spots, things are wide-open. Several clubs suffered a couple of losses of the past few weeks. It will be interesting to see which squads are able to take charge.

Phillips Andover (12-4-1) did move up three spots from the previous HNIB News Boys Prep rankings. Most recently, the Big Blue rolled past Loomis Chaffee, 6-2.
