For the first time this season, there is a new #1 team in the HNIB News Massachusetts Girls D2 Top 10.

Westwood (11-1-3) moves into the top spot, thanks to a solid week that saw wins over Medfield (4-1) and Dover-Sherborn/Hopkinton (5-0). The Wolverines will face Medway/Ashland Tuesday and Norwood Saturday.

#2 Walpole (12-3-1) dropped a tough one Saturday to D1 Braintree (3-1), the second time the Rebels have fell to the Wamps. Earlier, Walpole handed Franklin its first loss. Looking ahead, the Rebels get Natick on Wednesday.

Canton (8-3-4) jumps up to #3, a win over King Philip (5-0) its only action this week. The Bulldogs get Franklin (Wednesday) and Mansfield/Oliver Ames/Foxboro Saturday.

#4 Notre Dame Academy (11-3-1) is at #4 this week, after a win (3-2) and a tie (1-1) against previous #1 Wellesley. The Cougars also blanked Milton (5-0). They are off until facing D1’s #1 team Austin Prep on Saturday.

Due to the traffic jam amongst key contenders, that loss and tie to Notre Dame puts Wellesley (9-3-3) at #5. The Raiders did pick up wins over Framingham (7-1) and Brookline (4-0) and look ahead to Braintree (Wednesday) and Newton (Saturday).
