No. 1 Hanover remains on top after an easy week. The Indians had just one game and made quick work of North Quincy, 8-0, in Pembroke.

No. 2 Rockland had its first non-win result in a month when it tied Dennis-Yarmouth, 2-2, at Rockland Arena. That has to be a bit of a letdown for the Bulldogs – coughing up a point to a 3-15-1 team.

No. 3 Hopkinton played like a Top-5 team with two blowout victories this past week by a combined score of 16-0. The Hillers demolished Bellingham, 7-0, and Dedham, 9-0.

No. 4 Lowell deserves a bump up this week and the spot as our top-ranked North team. The Red Raiders dumped St. Peter Marian, 6-0, and blanked Dracut/Tyngsboro, 4-0.

No. 5 Coyle & Cassidy continues to be a legitimate threat in the South after a pair of ties this past week — 1-1 to Bishop Stang and 2-2 to Scituate.

No. 6 Holliston nipped Norton, 3-2, in Framingham to snap a two-game scoreless skid.

No. 7 Bourne had a disappointing effort in a matchup with Greater New Bedford, getting clobbered by the Bears, 7-1. The Canalmen came back with a 2-1 win over Martha’s Vineyard.

No. 8 Shawsheen took care of Northeast, 4-2, to finish 10-0-0 and on top of the Commonwealth Athletic Conference.

No. 9 Cambridge didn’t play in the past week and finishes the season with Walpole, Somerville and Lowell.

No. 10 Bishop Stang climbs into the Top 10 with a tie to its credit against Coyle & Cassidy. The Spartans carry a five-game unbeaten streak into this week.
