The top five of the HNIB News Mass. Girls Division II Top 10 poll remain intact in this latest installment. Yet, there was much movement in the bottom five.

 

#1 Falmouth (6-1-1) prepared for its big week with a 5-2 win over a tough Notre Dame of Hingham team, The Clippers have two big home games coming up, starting Monday against Barnstable, then followed by rival Duxbury (D-1’s top team) on Wednesday. Both games are 7pm face-offs.

 

#2 Wellesley (9-0-1) continues to churn out victories, downing Milton (4-0) and Natick (4-2) in Bay State Herget Division play.  The Raiders have a nice homestand this week, with Needham (Monday), Braintree (Wednesday) and Newton North (Saturday).

 

#3 Westwood (6-0-3) gets its shot at Duxbury Monday, prior to taking on Dennis-Yarmouth this coming Saturday. The Wolverines cruised to a 10-2 win over Mansfield/Oliver Ames on Saturday. Senior Kim Egizi cracked the 100-career point barrier in that one.

 

A pair of solid wins keeps Archbishop Williams (9-2-0) in the #4 position. The Bishops downed both Medfield (6-3) and Ursuline (4-1). Monday, Williams will have its hands full with Austin Prep.

 

Still perfect on the season is #5 Tewksbury/Methuen (8-0-0), whose game with Andover was postponed Saturday. They did have a convincing 6-2 win over Billerica. Chelmsford is next on the docket.

 

#6 Norwood (6-2-0) took care of Walpole, 3-1, on Saturday.  The Mustangs have to deal with Ursuline on Monday, then Framingham (Wednesday) and Needham (Saturday).

 

With a pair of wins this past week, Whitman-Hanson/Pembroke (8-2-0) climbs up to #7. Freshman Melanie McAleer drives the offense.  They get their crack at Duxbury this coming Saturday.

 

#8 Winchester (6-3-1) is winless in two games, having fell to Austin Prep (5-0) and tied Burlington (3-3). The Sachems are off until Saturday when they tangle with Wakefield.

 

#9 Medfield (6-3-0) is coming off a 5-1 win over Dover-Sherborn. The Warriors are in the position to make a move this week with games against Newton North, Medway/Ashland and Franklin.
