Undefeated No. 1 Concord (8-0-0) brushed aside another challenge Sunday afternoon as it dealt previously unbeaten Trinity its first loss of the season, 5-1. The Crimson Tide shut out Nashua South/Pelham earlier in the week and, to this point stands a cut above the rest of the division, having outscored opponents, 55-4.

However, this is challenge week – following Monday’s visit by Nashua North/Souhegan, Concord travels to once-beaten No. 2 Bishop Guertin (6-1-0) Wednesday and unbeaten No. 3 Salem (5-0-3) Saturday. The rankings could conceivably look a bit different come this time net week.

Bishop Guertin shut out Manchester Memorial, 7-0, in its only scheduled action. The Cardinals have piled up impressive numbers as well with a plus-38 differential (43-5) to go along with four shutouts. In addition to Wednesday’s game vs. Concord, Guertin plays at Arlington Catholic (MA) Monday and at Bow Saturday.

Salem turned back Londonderry 5-1, then trounced Manchester Central West. The Blue Devils have an open week in which to prepare for Saturday’s visit by Concord.

No. 4 Exeter (3-1-2) drops a notch through no fault of its own – its only scheduled game on Saturday at Arlington Catholic got snowed out. The Blue Hawks take on Trinity and Pinkerton this week.

No. 5 Bedford (5-2-1) picked up wins against Windham, 3-2, and Memorial, 6-0. The Bulldogs are off until next Saturday’s clash at Nashua South/Pelham.

After suffering its first loss to Concord, No. 6 Trinity (5-1-1) looks to regroup at Exeter Wednesday and against Memorial Saturday.

No. 7 Hanover (3-2-0) and No. 8 Pinkerton (4-3-0) swap spots from a week ago thanks to the Marauders’ 3-2 decision of the Astros Saturday. Hanover takes on NSP Monday and heads to Windham. Pinkerton visits Londonderry Wednesday and hosts Exeter Saturday.

No. 9 Windham (5-4-0) split games, falling to Bedford, 3-2, and handling NSP, 7-1.

No. 10 Bow (2-5-0) dropped its only game, 8-1, to Trinity.
