No. 1 Hanover hangs on to the top spot but Saturday’s results produced some movement directly behind the reigning State Champs.

The Marauders needed only a week to mete out revenge for an earlier loss to Trinity, doubling up the Pioneers on Wednesday, 6-3. They followed up with Saturday’s 6-2 decision of Salem. They host Concord Wednesday (5:40 pm) in a major clash and close the week Saturday at Manchester Memorial.

No. 2 Bedford climbs one spot. The Bulldogs fended off Concord Wednesday, 2-1, despite being badly outshot then handled Nashua North/Souhegan Saturday, 7-1. They face off with Massachusetts D2 stalwart Marblehead Monday and No. 7 Bishop Guertin Wednesday, both games at home.

No. 3 Concord rebounded from that loss to Bedford to rally past Pinkerton, 5-3, with three third-period goals Saturday. The Crimson Tide head to Hanover for the first of consecutive Wednesday clashes with the Marauders this week. Saturday’s home date against in-town rival No. 10 Bishop Brady also awaits.

No. 4 Pinkerton upended Guertin earlier in the week but tumbles a couple of spots following that loss to Concord in which the Astros rallied for a 3-2 lead early in the third. They look to rebound against No. 8 Windham Wednesday in their only game.

No. 5 Trinity bounced back from that mid-week loss to Hanover with Saturday’s 10-2 romp past Manchester Central/West. The Pioneers are off until Saturday’s home test with No. 9 Nashua South/Pelham.
