The top five in this week’s Massachusetts Girls Division 2 Top 10 remained the same, but there was some movement at the lower end.

Notre Dame (13-0-0) cemented itself as the team to beat with Saturday’s 3-1 win over D1’s #1 team, Austin Prep, in a showdown of last year’s two state champions.  The Cougars also blanked Arlington Catholic (4-0). NDA has one game this week, a tough one Thursday with Barnstable.

Ciara Wall
Matignon

#2 Matignon (11-2-0) clinched a post-season berth with wins over Algonquin/Hudson and Leominster. The Warriors, paced offensively by Ciara Wall’s 38 pts, take on Medford/Malden Monday, host Connecticut power East Catholic Tuesday in a make-up tilt, and will see Oakmont Saturday.

Kelly Golini
Tewksbury/Methuen

#3 Pembroke (11-0-1) remained unbeaten, slipping past Sandwich 1-0 in its only action. Looking ahead, the Titans have Norwell Wednesday and then impresive Medfield Saturday.

#4 Shrewsbury (11-1-0) beat Longmeadow (4-0) and Algonquin/Hudson (4-2) and clinched both a post-season spot and a league title. The Colonials have the week off.

#5 Tewksbury/Methuen (9-1-3) also clinched a tourney spot with a week that saw the Red Rangers tie Winchester (1-1) and beat both Cambridge (3-1) and Billerica/Chelmsford (4-2). Central Catholic (Wednesday) and Concord-Carlisle (Saturday) are on tap this week. Junior Kelly Golini has 23 goals on the season.

Milton (10-2-1) moves up to #6 after wins over Norwood (4-2), Weymouth (6-1) and Natick (4-3). Junior Julia Scannell (43 pts) and junior Elena Kapolis (37 pts) form a solid 1-2 scoring punch for the Wildcats, who take on Hingham (Monday), Walpole (Wednesday) and Wellesley (Saturday) in a big week.

Despite the loss to Shrewsbury, Longmeadow (6-4-1) holds serve at #7. The Lancers did blank Belmont (2-0) and are off until Saturday’s battle with Austin Prep.

#8 Winchester (6-2-4) has bounced back in a big way, following up the 1-1 tie with Tewksbury/Methuen with wins over Wakefield (6-1) and Wilmington (5-1). The Sachems get Melrose (Wednesday) before facing rival Woburn (Saturday).

#9 Falmouth (8-4-0) drops a bit after falling to Duxbury (4-2) and then beating Plymouth (2-1). The Clippers look to avenge an earlier loss against Dennis-Yarmouth (Wednesday) and face Hingham on Saturday.

#10 Wellesley (8-2-3) blanked both Newton North (3-0) and Walpole (4-0) and is primed to move up the poll in the coming weeks. The Raiders get Norwood on Wednesday before the showdown with Milton Saturday.

On The Bubble: Westwood (12-3-1), Whitman-Hanson/Silver Lake (8-2-2), Medfield (8-3-1)
