Boys Prep Top 15
|1||Avon Old Farms||2||21||2||0|
With one week to go in the regular season, we have a new #1 team in this week’s HNIB News Boys Prep Top 15.
That would be Avon Old Farms (21-2-0). The Winged Beavers faced previous top team, and now #2 Salisbury (19-3-1) in a Saturday showdown and came away with an impressive 3-0 win to take over at the top. Avon also had a win over Choate (8-2). The Beavers close out the regular season with Canterbury (Wednesday) and Loomis Chaffee (Saturday).
The Crimson Knights did blank Kent (3-0) and finish their regular season with games against #7 Hotchkiss (17-4-2) Wednesday and Canterbury (Saturday).
Kimball Union (25-6-2) inches up to #3 after a big win Saturday over #5 Cushing, 4-3. The Wildcats were tied up by Proctor (0-0) and also registered wins over Vermont Academy and Holderness. KUA now awaits the Lakes Region Tournament this weekend.
#4 Lawrence Academy (20-2-2) played #10 St. Mark’s (17-3-2) to a 4-4 standoff Saturday, coming after wins over Governors Academy and BB&N. The Spartans finish with St. Sebastian’s (Wednesday) and Tabor (Saturday).
Cushing has a big game Wednesday with #9 New Hampton (21-7-3) and then closes with Governors Academy (Saturday).
#6 Dexter Southfield (22-4-0) seems to be running on all cylinders again, posting wins this past week over Berwick, Winchendon and Kents Hill and scoring 29 goals in the process. One regular season game is remaining: a Wednesday date with Hoosac.
The biggest mover of the week is Berkshire (16-7-2), which climbs four spots to #11 after wins over Trinity Pawling (4-2) and Westminster (6-5). The Bears have #14 Millbrook Wednesday and Gunnery (Saturday).
