As the season nears its midpoint, No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas (4-1-1) finds itself back where it started the pre-season – on top thanks to Saturday night’s sound 4-1 road win at Salem.

 

Goalie Zane Angelopoulos continued his stellar play with 27 saves and the Saints broke open a scoreless game with three unanswered goals in the second period. Niall Foster, Glen Wiswell, Zach Leavitt and Ty Turgeon scored for STA, which has home dates with Nashua North and Manchester Central this week.

 

No. 2  Salem (5-1-0; 9-1-0 overall) had its impressive season-opening nine-game winning streak snapped by STA. The Blue Devils figure to bounce back over the next two weeks with a string of games against the division’s lower-tier teams.

 

No. 3 Manchester Central (4-1-0) avenged last season’s State title game loss and secured Queen City bragging rights for the time being with a 3-0 shutout of Manchester Memorial Saturday night. Ian Belliveau posted his third straight shutout and Central got goals from Devon Sprague, Jon Mathieu and Colin Pacheco.

 

No. 4 Londonderry (5-2-0) outlasted Bishop Guertin in a wild one Saturday, 7-5, for its fourth consecutive victory. Mike Donlan had three goals and Curtis Harper contributed two goals and two assists. Londonderry’s lone game this week is a big one – Wednesday night at Central.

 

No. 5 Trinity (4-2-0) rebounded from Wednesday’s loss to Salem to trip up Nashua North Saturday night, 3-2, and will seek to enhance its standing this week with games against Concord and Pinkerton.

 

The same holds true for No. 6 Manchester Memorial (4-2-1), which faces off against Hanover and Bishop Guertin this week.

 

No. 7 Nashua North (4-2-0) has dropped two straight and heads to Dover Wednesday to take on STA.

 

No. 8 Concord (2-3-0) will try to make it three wins in four games when Trinity visits Everett Arena Wednesday night.

 

No. 9 Pinkerton (1-3-1) found the win column with a 9-2 romp past Hanover Saturday night.

 

No. 10 Bishop Guertin (1-4-1) seeks to snap a five-game winless skid at Pinkerton Wednesday night.
