A busy final week of the regular season looms ahead for several teams, with games postponed due to weather being made up as part of three and sometime four-game weeks.


One of those make-up games takes place Monday, when #1 Millbrook (13-3-1) travels to #2 Gunnery (13-5-1) to take on the Highlanders. The two teams met early this season, with Millbrook winning, 2-0. They also met in the 2013 Girls Prep Division II New England title game, with Gunnery winning.


Monday’s winner could have a leg up heading into the 2014 post-season.


The Mustangs did get beat Saturday, falling 3-2 to New Jersey prep Lawrenceville. After Gunnery, Millbrook closes out with home games against Rye Country Day Wednesday (4:30 pm) and Kingswood Saturday (4:30 pm).


The Highlanders have not played a game since February 8th, so they should be well-rested.  They have a key game at Kent Wednesday (4:00 pm) and close out the regular season at Canterbury (2:oo pm).


#3 Rivers (12-4-0) edged past Governor’s Academy (2-1) on Wednesday, but had Saturday’s key tilt with Proctor cancelled due to weather concerns. The Red Wings still will play four times this week as they prepare for the post-season. They host Worcester Academy Monday (2:00 pm), are at Lawrence Academy Wednesday (5:oo pm), host Southfield Friday in a key tilt (3:15 pm) and then are at Tilton Saturday (3:00 pm).


With a 4-2 win over Middlesex as the key, Brooks (13-7-1) moves up to #4 this week. The Bishops also bounced Groton, 5-2. They will see three games this week, starting Monday with Holderness (4:30pm). They travel to St. Mark’s Wednesday (4:15 pm) and to Governor’s Academy on Saturday (2:00 pm).


#5 Proctor (17-6-1) also has a grueling, four-game week before heading into the post-season. In their most recent, game, the Hornets took care of Hebron, 8-1. The big week starts at Brewster Academy Monday (6:15 pm), followed by Tilton Wednesday (1:30 pm), at New Hampton Friday (4:30 pm) and home with Northfield Saturday (3:30 pm)


#6 Middlesex (10-7-1) lost to both Lawrence Academy and Brooks before rebounding with a big 3-1 win over Southfield. The Zebras have a pair of tough games remaining: at BB&N Wednesday (2:30 pm) and at St. George’s Saturday (2:oo pm)


HNIB-ad-for-HNIBnews#7 Southfield (9-7-3) is off until the weekend, but could use a pair of wins at Rivers Friday (3:15 pm) and against Greenwich Academy Saturday (2:00 pm).


#8 Worcester Academy (15-6-2) is in search of its first playoff berth. A win Monday against Rivers will go a long way to determining that. The Hilltoppers also take on Greenwich Academy Wednesday (6 pm) and host Rye Country Day Saturday (3:15 pm).


Playoff seedings and pairing will be announced on Sunday, February 23 with quarterfinal action commencing on Wednesday, February 26.
