What a week for new No. 1 Exeter (8-1-0). The Blue Hawks completed a three-game season series sweep of Bedford, sandwiching 4-2 and 2-0 decisions of the Bulldogs on Wednesday and Saturday around Friday’s 4-3 win against Concord. Winners of six straight, the Hawks have a Wednesday-Saturday home-and-home against Windham this week.

Undefeated No. 2 Salem (7-0-0) bumped up two slots following back-to-back 3-2 wins against Bishop Guertin. How do the Blue Devils and Exeter match up? No way of knowing at this point since they didn’t meet during the regular season. Salem closes out its abbreviated regular season with two games against Bedford this week.

No. 3 Bishop Guertin (7-2-0) drops two spots after that double dip against Salem. The Cardinals trek north to meet Hanover on Wednesday and face them at home Saturday.

No. 4 Concord (6-2-0) bracketed Friday’s loss to Exeter with a pair of one-goal verdicts against Trinity. The Crimson Tide doubles up against Pinkerton this Wednesday and Saturday.

No. 5 Bedford (5-3-0) shoots to rebound from that three-game losing streak to Exeter – during which it was outscored, 11-4 – but it won’t be easy. The Bulldogs have that two-game set with Salem before meeting Londonderry on Sunday.

No. 6 Hanover (3-5-0) swept two games from a young and determined Windham team. The Marauders have those two games against Guertin this week.

No. 7 Bishop Brady (6-3-0) completed a season sweep of Bow before bowing to Londonderry. D2 foes Merrimack and Manchester Memorial (twice) are on tap this week.

No. 8 Londonderry (3-5-0) split games with Pinkerton before blasting Bow on Saturday. The Lancers square off twice with tough-luck No. 9 Trinity (1-7-0) this week. The Pioneers have suffered four one-goal losses following that double dip against Concord.

No. 10 Keene (3-2-0) split against Queen City clubs, routing Manchester Central/West but falling to D2 Manchester Memorial, 6-2. The Blackbirds travel to D2 Merrimack Saturday.
