Hopedale (10-5-5) earned the No. 2 seed and an opening round bye in the upcoming Central Mass. Division 3A tournament thanks in large part to the consistently strong play from forward Hunter Dunn.

Grafton (11-7-2) started the season 2-3 but rebounded nicely to qualify for the postseason.

Worcester (10-7-3) is a balanced team that will be a tough out come tournament time.

Leominster (9-9-1) snuck into the Central Mass. Division 3 tournament but with their offensive firepower, they are equipped to make a postseason run.
