There’s nothing like a holiday tournament title-clinching win against a chief challenger to solidify one’s status as the state’s top team. No. 1 Malden Catholic (4-0-0) did just that Saturday night, winning the Christie Serino Christmas Classic crown with a 4-1 decision of Austin Prep in the first meeting between the teams since the 2013 1A final.

 

No. 2 B.C. High (5-0-0) opened the season with three straight shutouts and jumps three spots in our first in-season poll. The Eagles have outscored their opponents, 28-3.

 

No. 3 Springfield Cathedral (3-1-1) seems to have recovered from an early stumble and rolled over Barnstable, 9-3, to win the Cape Cod Freezeout title Saturday night.

 

No. 4 Austin Prep (3-1-1) opened with three wins but earned just a single point in the Serino Christmas Classic with a tie against St. Mary’s.

 

No. 5 Catholic Memorial (3-1-0) bounced back from Friday’s semifinal loss to Framingham at the Silverback Classic to edge Marshfield in the consolation tilt.

 

No. 6 Central Catholic (3-0-1) faces a key week with road games at Austin Prep on New Year’s Day and at St. John’s Prep on Saturday.

 

No. 7 Archbishop Williams (3-0-1) climbed four spots and has a 3-2 win against Cathedral on its resume.

 

No. 8 Milton (5-0-0) shoots up eight spots by virtue of its unblemished start that includes the Quincy Youth Christmas Tournament crown.

 

No. 9 Xaverian (5-0-0) makes it four Catholic Conference clubs in the Top 10. The Hawks own solid wins against top publics such as Reading and Marshfield.

 

No. 10 Melrose (4-0-1) has quietly gone about its business and captured the Kasabuski Christmas Classic American Division title last Friday.
