No. 1 Keene (12-3-2) certainly isn’t heading into tournament play under the head of steam it hoped it might. After starting the week with a 4-3 win against Merrimack, the Blackbirds were stunned by No, 8 Lebanon/Stevens/Mount Royal (7-9-1) Wednesday night in their finale, 5-0. Not enough to move Keene off the top spot but certainly enough to get their and everyone else’s attention.
That performance served as the season finale as well for LSMR, which turned its year around with a 5-3-1 second half.
No. 2 St. Thomas Aquinas (13-4-1) crossed the border for a 4-3 win against Maine Class A stalwart St. Dom’s and finished the regular season with 3-1 decision of Portsmouth/Newmarket.
No. 4 Goffstown (13-5-0) finished up with an 8-3 rout of Alvirne/Milford.
No. 5 Dover (11-7-0) seems to have regained its momentum heading into the tournament, closing with three straight shutouts, including a pair this week against Oyster River, 3-0, and Spaulding, 6-0.
After winning six straight, No. 6 Oyster River (11-5-1) endured a rugged final week, shut out by both Dover and Merrimack.
No. 7 Somersworth/Coe-Brown (10-6-1) easily won its finale against Winnacunnet, 9-2,
