The mid-week storm left most teams with single games and others with unanticipated empty weeks. Not much chance for movement with the limited schedule.

No.1 Hanover handled Manchester Memorial, 5-1, in its only game Saturday. It’s a big week for the Marauders who face off with Concord in a Wednesday/Sunday home-and-home bracketing Saturday’s home tilt with No. 6 Exeter.

No. 2 Bedford picked up a pair of early-week wins against Massachusetts D2 Marblehead, 5-3, and No. 9 Bishop Guertin, 8-3. The Bulldogs – D1’s highest-scoring squad with 76 goals – have Wednesday/Saturday road dates against D2 leader St. Thomas Aquinas and Trinity.

On the flip side, No. 3 Concord continues to thrive thanks to a suffocating defense that has yielded 14 goals. The Crimson Tide edged cross-town rival No. 8 Bishop Brady Saturday, 2-1. This week’s two-game set with Hanover will have major implications in regards to post-season seeding. The Tide also has a Saturday date with Bp. Guertin.

No. 4 Pinkerton is in the midst of 10-day dark stretch. Once they finally get back on the ice, the Astros spend the week at home with games against Exeter Wednesday and Salem Saturday.

No. 5 Trinity knocked Nashua South/Pelham out of the Top 10 with its 5-1 Saturday. The Pioneers head to Windham Wednesday and entertain Bedford on Saturday.
