No. 1 Dover (10-1-0) swamped Portsmouth/Newmarket twice by a combined 12-0 count although P/N did pick up its first win of the season against Winnacunnet on Friday . The Green Wave crosses the border for Thursday’s game at York, ME and close the regular season Saturday at home against Winnacunnet.

No. 2 Manchester Memorial (9-0-0) remained the state’s only undefeated team as it took down D1 Bishop Brady twice. Memorial wraps up the regular season against D1 foes Nashua North/Souhegan Thursday (home) and Keene Saturday (away).

No. 3 Oyster River (7-2-0) bumps up a spot after sweeping St. Thomas Aquinas. It’s a three-game week for the Bobcats, who visit Portsmouth/Newmarket Monday and Spaulding Tuesday before returning home for Saturday’s finale against D1 Bedford.

No. 4 St. Thomas Aquinas (6-4-0) drops after that double dip against OR. The Saint did defeat Portsmouth/Newmarket and also finish with three games, with a home-and-home against Sanborn/Epping bracketing Thursday’s visit to D1 Keene.

No. 5 Merrimack (5-3-0) split games against D1 opponents, upending Bp. Brady, 4-3, but falling to Keene, 6-4. The Tomahawks stay in D1 to finish up, visiting Keene Monday before hosting Bow on Wednesday.

No. 6 Somersworth/Coe-Brown (7-4-1) closed on a three-game winning streak, including a 5-4 decision of Spaulding and 6-3 win against Winnacunnet.

No. 7 Winnacunnet (4-7-1) stumbled against both SCB and Portsmouth/Newmarket before Saturday’s win against Spaulding. The Warriors are at York, ME Wednesday and at Dover Saturday.

No. 8 Goffstown (3-6-0) has won three straight and can finish .500 if it stretches that streak to six with wins at D1 Nashua North/Souhegan, at D3 Hollis-Brookline/Derryfield and vs. D1 Manchester Central/West this week.
