Central Mass. Top 10 Poll
Not even a loss to Division One power Springfield Cathedral could keep No. 1 Shrewsbury from retaining its top position in the weekly poll. The Colonials have been the class of Central Mass.
No. 2 North Middlesex has yet to lose and still can’t overtake Shrewsbury. No. 4 Wachusett was the latest Quinn Conference team to fall to Shrewsbury.
No. 7 Littleton moved up three spots following a strong week. Wachusett survived a scare and needed five third-period goals to beat Groton-Dunstable.
Both No. 9 Nashoba and No. 10 Grafton continue to hover around the .500 mark.
– Jack Quinlivan had two goals and an assist as Shrewsbury defeated Wachusett for the fourth straight time. Freshman David Bunsick made 17 saves. It was his second career start.
– Kyle Johnson scored the game’s lone goal during the first period as Fitchburg edged Nashoba Regional, 1-0. Zach Hackey finished with 25 saves.
– Brian Boulette scored three goals for the hat trick to spark a rally that lifted Wachusett over Groton-Dunstable, 7-4.
