No need to move the gauge on Hanover this week. The #1 Indians had just one game and tied Scituate, a Division 2 team that is fighting for its tourney lives at 7-7-3.

#2 North Quincy also had a trip through Division 2 – Plymouth specifically. It split, beating Plymouth South, 1-0, and falling to Plymouth North, 3-1.

#3 Bishop Stang also split, falling to Division 2 Bishop Feehan, 4-2, before rebounding for a 4-2 victory over Dennis-Yartmouth. Stang will have two huge tests this week – Coyle & Cassidy (Wednesday, Feb. 6, 7 p.m.) and Hanover (Saturday, Feb. 9, 1 p.m.), each at Hetland Memorial Arena in New Bedford.

#4 Bourne continued its red-hot streak with two wins. The Canalmen beat Wareham/Carver, 10-3, and Sandwich, 4-3. Bourne has put up 86 goals this season. They’ve won eight straight.

#5 Newton South stays put. The Lions had a 2-2 tie with Watertown, which is not playing bad at all at 8-5-3. Newton South came back with an impressive 3-2 win over Lowell, completing the season sweep of the Red Raiders.

Mad props as the kids say to #6 Coyle & Cassidy for beating Shrewsbury, 4-2, Saturday. The Warriors just may have vaulted themselves into a serious position to take the South this season. After all, Shrewsbury doesn’t lose in Boston often. Coyle & Cassidy also blanked Scituate, 4-0.

Speaking of red-hot, we’ve ignored #7 Norwell for a while. But no longer. The Clippers are getting into some conversations of top teams in the South again. They’ve won nine in a row and have absolutely been annihilating teams in their last five. They’ve outscored foes, 34-6, in that span.

#8 Ashland fell to Division 2 Norwood in a battle, 3-2, and rebounded with a 4-0 win over Norton.

 #9 Hopkinton snapped a two-game slide with a 5-2 win over Division 2 Dedham.

#10 Lynn makes its way back into the top 10 in the final spot. The Jets are 2-0-2 in their last four and beat Hamilton-Wenham, 5-1, and tied Revere/Malden, 3-3, this past week.
