The calendar has just turned to 2022, but Hockey Night in Boston’s top-ranked Division 3 Massachusetts team already has a pair of trophies for the case. After previously winning the Borough’s Cup, No. 1 Marlboro swept a pair of games in the annual MetroWest Daily News Cup and maintains its top spot. The Panthers have a huge showdown of unbeatens upcoming against another Central Mass. team that will appear a bit later in this week’s list.

No. 2 Medway suffered its first loss of the season, but the Mustangs still had a strong 2-1 showing in their annual trip to Maine for the Norway Savings Bank Classic.

Patriot League rivals Scituate and Hanover hold on to the Nos. 3 and 4 spots, respectively. The Sailors secured their lone win last week against Silver Lake, and Hanover did the same against previously unbeaten neighboring rival Norwell.

Despite dropping its only game last week against unbeaten Gloucester, Lynnfield is up a spot to No. 5. The Pioneers have another big test this week against Cape Ann rival Newburyport.

No. 6 Dighton-Rehoboth/Seekonk cruised to three victories in the Crusader Hockey Classic in Rhode Island, and brings its unbeaten record back over the border.

No. 7 Bishop Stang started off the Dartmouth Holiday Tournament with a win over the host school. The Spartans are scheduled for Catholic Central games this week against Cardinal Spellman and St. Joseph Prep.

Entering the rankings at No. 8 is Nashoba, which also captured its second hardware of the early season, rolling to the Bellingham Hockey Boosters Tournament championship. The Wolves will put their unbeaten mark to the test Wednesday in the showdown with Marlboro.

No. 9 Danvers split its games in the Lions Cup, falling to D1 host Chelmsford and bouncing back to shut out Lowell Catholic.

Also joining the rankings this week is No. 10 Foxboro, which was in line to face Bishop Stang last week in the Dartmouth championship before the game was postponed.
