Pre-season #1 Falmouth (4-1-0) regains the top spot in this week’s HNIB News Massachusetts Girls Top 10 poll. The Clippers won their fourth in a row afte

r an opening-night loss on Saturday, downing Ursuline Academy, 5-2, behind the three-goal performance of Kelly Ferreira and single tallies from Maddie Haberl and Emily Sanidas.

 

Falmouth has a three-game week, starting with a trip to Hingham on Monday to take on the tough Harborwomen. They then host Notre Dame of Hingham on Wednesday, another tough opponent, before travelling to Norwell on Saturday.

 

#2 Wellesley (7-0-1) is still unbeaten. The Raiders held off Norwood on Saturday. This week, coach George Campbell’s club looks to keep it going with games at Milton on Wednesday and home against Natick on Saturday.

 

Westwood (5-0-2) dropped a few spots, but the Wolverines remain unbeaten. Most recently, they dispatched Franklin, 6-1. Senior Ela Hazar cracked the 100-point career plateau against the Panthers. Wednesday, Westwood is at Medway/Ashland, and Saturday it hosts Mansfield/Oliver Ames.

#4 Archbishop Williams (7-2-0) was idle on Saturday. This week, the Bishops have a pair of tough games, hosting Medfield on Wednesday and Ursuline Academy on Saturday. Katie Meehan (12-6-18) and Katie Barry (7-9-16) pace the offense and Ashley Dallaire (1.05 gaa) has been solid in goalie.

 

#5 Tewksbury/Methuen (7-0-0) continues to be a great story in just their second varsity year. Saturday, they defeated Concord-Carlisle 6-4 thanks to a five-goal performance from Amanda Conway. The perfect record will be put to the test this week, as the club hosts Billerica on Wednesday, and then travels to Andover Saturday, both Division I opponents.

Despite a loss to Division I power Reading on Saturday, #6 Winchester (6-2-0) moves up a few notches and has shown it will be a legitimate threat in Division II.  A huge game looms Wednesday with D-1 power Austin Prep. The Sachems, led offensively by Melissa Zavez (5-6-11) and Alaina Ewing (7-4-11), are at Burlington Saturday.

#8 Whitman-Hanson’Pembroke (6-2-0) will look ahead to King Philip on Wednesday and Latin Academy on Saturday.

 

Rounding out the poll are two newcomers: #9 Notre Dame of Hingham (3-3–2), who gave Westwood all it could handle, and #10 Medfield (5-2-0).
