New Hampshire Boys D2 Top 10
|1||St. Thomas Aquinas||1||11||2||0|
Well, as far as the regular season is concerned, we know this much to be true: The top two NHIAA D2 squads reside in Dover roughly five miles or so apart. Truth be told, there’s not much separating one from the other.
No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas and No. 2 Dover split this week’s highly-anticipated two-game set with the Saints prevailing Monday, 3-1, and the Green Wave countering on Saturday, 5-2, with five unanswered goals after falling behind 2-0.
STA gets right back at it tonight with a visit to No. 7 Alvirne/Milford, tangles with D1 Bedford on Wednesday and heads to Spaulding Saturday. Dover squeezed a 6-0 whitewash of Somersworth/Coe-Brown in between the two STA tussles and is off until Saturday’s trip to No. 10 Kingswood.
No. 3 Goffstown had a full week to prepare for Sunday night’s visit by Keene, and it was worth it, as the Grizzlies took a 4-3 win. Goffstown heads to Winnacunnet Wednesday and are home to Oyster River on Saturday.
No. 4 Keene swaps spots with Oyster River after handling the Bobcats Friday night, 5-1. The Blackbirds face D1 Manchester Central Wednesday.
Friday’s loss to Keene snapped No. 5 Oyster River’s eight-game winning streak (7-0-1). OR looks to return to its winning ways Wednesday against Alvirne-Milford.
