As the season heads into its second half, it’s becoming harder and harder to envision a scenario that will derail No. 1 Bedford’s (10-0-0) quest for a third consecutive State Championship.

 

Any way you look at it, at this point in the season, the Bulldogs are clearly the division’s most complete team. They won their two games this week by an aggregate 17-2 score, have scored five or more goals seven times, and average 6.1 goals per game. Conversely, they have yielded a mere 11 goals, posting three shutouts to date.

 

They sure have us convinced that slowing them down is a remote possibility at best.

 

Perhaps No. 2 Spaulding (8-0-0) has the answer but that match-up is a long way off (Feb. 19) and much can occur between now and then. Spaulding routed Timberlane Saturday night; walloped No. 8 Kingswood Sunday; and visits Keene and Merrimack later this week.

 

No. 3 Bow (7-2-0) bumps up a spot after toppling No. 6 Windham/Pelham in its lone action of the week. Next up are Somersworth/Coe-Brown and Winnacunnet.

 

No. 4 Dover (7-2-0) took it on the chin against improving Goffstown Wednesday, 4-3, before bouncing back Saturday against Pembroke/Campbell. Merrimack and Keene are next.

 

No. 5 Goffstown (6-2-0) moves up two slots as it followed up its upset of Dover with a 6-4 decision of Kingswood.  Oyster River and Lebanon are on the slate this week.
