No. 1 Bedford continues to storm through the competition in its first Division One campaign, having surrendered a meager seven goals (+23 differential) through six league contests. Top 5 tests at Exeter (Thursday) and vs. Memorial (Saturday) are on the docket this week.

No. 2 Salem (8-0-1 overall) stretched its league winning streak to five straight. The Blue Devils’ league numbers (31 GF, 9 GA, +22) are every bit as impressive as Bedford’s. Salem hits the road for games against Memorial and Nashua South this week.

The lone league meeting between the current Nos. 1 and 2 is a long way off — Jan. 31 at The Icenter.

Here comes No. 3 Bishop Guertin (4-5-0 overall), winners of four straight including Wednesday’s 4-2 decision of Memorial. The Cardinals benefited greatly from December’s Mount St. Charles Holiday Classic visit and look to extend their league streak this week against Nashua South and No. 9 Pinkerton.

No. 4 Memorial tumbles two spots following its first loss of the season against Guertin. It’s a packed week for Memorial, which tackles Division 2 Merrimack on Monday and Nashua South on Wednesday in advance of Saturday’s visit to Bedford.

No. 5 Exeter absorbed a lopsided loss against Salem Saturday night. Next up? Top-ranked Bedford on Thursday, followed by a trip to St. Thomas Aquinas Saturday. Not an easy stretch for the Blue Hawks.
