New Hampshire Boys D1 Top 10
One pretty significant result – Exeter’s convincing 5-2 win on previously unbeaten Bedford’s home ice Saturday – leads to a re-shaping of this week’s poll.
Undefeated No. 1 Bishop Guertin (7-0-0) moves into the top spot after sweeping Windham, 4-0 and 4-2. The Cardinals take on Salem in a home-and-home this week.
No. 2 Exeter (5-1-0) vaults into the primary chase position on the strength of that win. The Blue Hawks take on Hanover in advance of two more dates with Bedford later this week.
Undefeated No. 4 Salem (5-0-0) squeezed past Hanover, 3-2, in its only action of the week. Next up for the Blue Devils are those back-to-back dates with Bishop Guertin.
No. 5 Concord (5-1-0) is hopeful of returning to action this week after having its season suspended due to COVID-19 concerns.
No. 6 Bishop Brady (5-2-0), winners of three straight, heads to Bow on Wednesday.
No. 7 Hanover (1-4-0) faces Exeter Monday before a home-and-home against Windham.
No. 8 Keene (2-1-0) moves into the poll after splitting a two-game set with Lebanon/Stevens/Mount Royal and defeating Monument/Fall Mountain.
No. 9 Nashua North/Souhegan (1-1-0) makes its after topping Alvirne/Milford Saturday, 7-1.
No. 10 Trinity (1-5-0) faces an empty week.
