Mass. Girls D2 Top 10
While things remained status quo amongst the Girls Division 1 Top 10, there was much movement at the Division 2 level. Only two of last week’s ten teams remained in the same position, and there are three new faces in this week’s HNIB News Massachusetts Girls Division 2 Top 10
Duxbury (4-0-2) was one of those two teams, hanging on to the #1 spot even after a pair of ties, one with Notre Dame, the other with #9 Braintree (3-1-1). The Dragon have another tough one on Wednesday against league rival Hingham.
Idle Andover (3-1-0) bumps up to #2. The Warriors have already seen Monday’s scheduled tilt with Beverly/Danvers postponed. They hope to tackle league foe Methuen/Tewksbury on Wednesday.
Impressive wins over Barnstable and Pembroke won #3 Sandwich (4-0-0) a Judy Gormley Cup title. The Knights now have this week off.
#4 Algonquin/Hudson (6-0-1) picked up a pair of one-goal wins (Natick, Pope Francis) as it readies for a Monday battle with Longmeadow.
#5 Woburn (3-1-1) tied up D1 power Arlington as it hopes to host Reading on Wednesday.
With an undermanned roster, #6 Natick (2-2-1) lost twice this week and dropped four spots, but will remain in the rankings. The Redhawks hope to have a full squad this Saturday vs Newton.
#7 Winchester (4-0-0) makes its Top 10 debut after impressive wins over Canton (5-1) and Lincoln-Sudbury (6-2). The Red & Black will take on Belmont on Wednesday.
Falmouth (3-2-0) holds firm at #8 despite a loss to Shrewsbury. The Clippers are scheduled to face the Cape Cod Furies on Wednesday before seeing Notre Dame on Friday.
Both Braintree and #10 Westwood (4-0-0) are new to the rankings this week. The Wamps impressed in a 2-2 tie with top-ranked Duxbury. The Wolverines hope to battle Medfield on Wednesday.
