#1 Wellesley (3-2-0) bounced back after an early-week loss to D1’s top club Austin Prep (3-0) with a win over Framingham (5-0). After having this past weekend off, the Raiders are set to take on Brookline (Wednesday) and Newton Co-op (Saturday).

#2 Westwood (7-0-1) survived a scare Saturday, rallying from two goals down to best Norwood (4-2). The Wolverines, who also blanked Medway-Ashland, have to face a good Dedham team Wednesday, then a return engagement with Canton on Saturday.

#3 Notre Dame Academy (6-0-0) took a bit to get going Saturday, scoring all five of its goals in the third period of a 5-0 win over Marblehead. The Cougars play just once this week, a Monday encounter with Acton-Boxboro.

Up to #4 this week is Archbishop Williams (5-2-0). The Bishops only result of the week was an 8-1 win over Arlington Catholic. They do not return to action until Saturday vs. Medfield.

#5 Canton (4-2-2) has hit a little bump in the road with a loss to Franklin (3-2) and a tie with Mansfield/Oliver Ames/Foxboro (5-5). The Bulldogs look to right the ship this week, facing off with Stoughton (Wednesday) before the Westwood matchup.

Algonquin/Hudson (6-2-0) remains put at #6. The T-Hawks downed Leominster (6-1) in their only action this week. After seeing Framingham Wednesday, a tough one with Shrewsbury looms on Saturday.

#7 Matignon (5-3-0) shut out three opponents this past week to the tune of 21-0. No one has a tougher week ahead though, as the Warriors face Austin Prep (Wednesday) and Methuen-Tewksbury (Saturday).

Coming off a 2-2 tie with Reading, Winchester (3-1-3) slides up a spot to #8. The Sachems will see Belmont (Wednesday) and Arlington (Saturday) in Middlesex League play.

#9 Pembroke (7-0-1) followed up a tie with Cohasset-Hanover (2-2) with a 5-3 decision of Whitman-Hanson/Silver Lake. The Titans have a good test Wednesday with Hingham and take on Scituate Saturday.

New to the poll this week is #10 Walpole (6-1-0). The Rebels look forward to Braintree on Wednesday.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Dennis-Yarmouth (5-2-0), Bishop Fenwick (6-2-0), Dedham (4-1-2)
