Dartmouth continues to take Massachusetts by storm. And Rhode Island, too.

The No. 1 Indians rolled through a busy week in which they had four games in seven days, starting with wins against Old Rochester/Fairhaven and Durfee. Then they knocked off Burrillville (R.I.), and capped it all with a trip to the Ocean State to rally past a tough Bourne squad.

It wasn’t nearly as busy for No. 2 Hopkinton, but just as big as the Hillers swept their season series with Norwood in their only game of the week.

South Shore neighboring rivals Hanover and Norwell continue their ascent toward the top, checking in at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively. Bedford slips to No. 5 after losing for the second time this season to Newton South, which jumps four spots to No. 11.

Cambridge, Holliston, Bishop Stang, John Paul II and Somerset Berkley round out the top 10.

North Quincy, fresh off last week’s upset of Division 1 Duxbury, returns to the rankings at No. 15.

The marquee action this week takes place at Hetland Arena in New Bedford, where Dartmouth, Stang, North Quincy and defending state champ Wachusett all will gather for the Spartan Cup. Stang and Dartmouth meet in Wednesday’s nightcap (8 p.m.) after Wachusett and North Quincy battle in the early game (6 p.m.).

Hopkinton also has an interesting matchup with Div. 2 Plymouth North to open the Fairleigh Dickinson Tournament on Martha’s Vineyard, but not before hosting Holliston on Wednesday (8 p.m., NE Sports Center). Vineyard takes on Attleboro in Saturday’s other first-round game.

Meanwhile, Hanover hosts Duxbury on Wednesday (7:50, Hobomock), and Bishop Stang also opens the week at Martha’s Vineyard on Monday (4:30 p.m.).
