While not much changed this past week in the latest HNIB News Girls Prep Division I poll, that could be different story come next weekend, as there are numerous key clashes amongst the contenders that could change the poll drastically.

 

Take a look:

 

2/5  #8 Williston at #9 Choate, 3:15pm

2/7  #2 St. Paul’s at #3 Tabor, 5:30pm

2/7  #7 Westminster at #5 Loomis Chaffee, 6:00pm

2/8 #1 Nobles at #7 Westminster, 1:00pm

2/8 #3 Tabor at #6 Pomfret, 4:45 pm

2/8 #9 Choate at #5 Loomis Chaffee, 6:30pm

 

#1 Nobles (19-0-0), coming off wins over St. George’s (4-1) and Brooks (7-0), will see Groton on Wednesday, and then also will have a tough opponent Friday in resurgent BB&N, winners of six straight.

 

#2 St. Paul’s (17-0-1) will have its hands full with D-2 power Middlesex on Wednesday before heading to Tabor Friday.

 

#3 Tabor (12-1-3) prepares for its big weekend with Phillips Andover Wednesday. The Seawolves this week edged Rivers (2-1), downed Lawrence Academy (6-2) and were tied by St. Mark’s (1-1).

 

Kent (9-3-2) stays firm at #4. The Lions blanked Greenwich Academy in their only action of the week. They take on Canterbury on Wednesday, then have Division II’s top-ranked club, Millbrook, on Saturday.

 

Loomis Chaffee (10-5-0) slides up to #5, coming off a huge, 2-1 win  over Gunnery. The Pelicans will see Hotchkiss on Wednesday before their tough weekend slate.

 

#6 Pomfret (10-4-1) moves up after slipping past Westminster on Wednesday. The Griffins can’t look past Berkshire on Wednesday.

 

#7 Westminster (10-5-1) will play Deerfield on Wednesday, then head into its key weekend, culminating with Saturday’s battle hosting #1 Nobles.

 

#8 Williston (12-4-3) blanked Taft in its only action, and follows up the Choate game with a tussle with Kimball Union on Saturday.

 

Choate (9-4-3) drops down a bit to #9 after being tied by Northfield, 2-2. A good week against Williston and Loomis could propel the Wild Boars higher.

 

And at #10, BB&N (11-6-1) re-emerges, thanks to an impressive six-game winning streak that includes five straight shutouts from goalie Katie Burt.
