No. 1 Dover (8-1-0) has taken control of the division. The Green Wave swept past Merrimack, 6-1, in what was a battle of unbeatens at the time, then swamped Spaulding in consecutive games, 7-1, in each. Dover has a home-and-home with Portsmouth/Newmarket this week

Undefeated No. 2 Manchester Memorial (7-0-0) continues to make the most of its first year in the division. Memorial took down both Merrimack and D1 Keene and has a two-game set with D1 Bishop Brady this week.

No. 3 St. Thomas Aquinas (5-1-0), which hadn’t played since Jan. 27, fell to Somersworth/Coe-Brown Saturday, 4-3. The Saints have a three-game week, taking on Portsmouth/Newmarket Monday before a two-game set with Oyster River.

No. 4 Oyster River (5-2-0) – the only team to defeat Dover to date – slammed Winnacunnet and Portsmouth/Newmarket by an aggregate 15-2 count. Those two games against STA are up next.
