#2 Winthrop (18-0-0) made it two straight unbeaten regular seasons and will be one the favorites. The Vikings hope to go further than last year, when they were ousted by eventual state champ Austin Prep in the Round of 16.
#3 Notre Dame Academy (14-6-0) will also be a force. Four of the Cougars six losses have come to St. Mary’s and D2 #1 Duxbury. They will have one of the deeper lineups in the post-season.
MVC/Dual County Large co-champ #4 Shrewsbury (16-2-2) can’t be overlooked. the Colonials concluded their regular season with a Newburyport Bank Classic title.
HPNA (12-6-2) finishes the regular season at #5 after a 2-0 win over #6 Peabody/Lynnfield/North Reading (16-4-0). Both will be tough outs in the post-season.
