Despite Wednesday’s stunning 5-2 loss to Trinity, No. 1 Hanover holds sway – with an asterisk. Nothing changes because the Marauders defeated their closest pursuer Pinkerton earlier this month and have not yet played either Bedford or Concord.

They rebounded with a 3-2 win against Londonderry Saturday and have a home rematch with Trinity Wednesday before heading to No. 9 Salem on Saturday.

No. 2 Pinkerton capped a solid week that included a 5-1 decision of No. 7 Exeter with Saturday’s 3-2 decision of Bedford in a highly anticipated matchup. The Astros continue to lead the division in differential at +43 (53/10). Following Wednesday’s home clash with No. 6 Bish0p Guertin, they head to Concord on Saturday.

No. 3 Bedford returned from a week off and incurred its first in-season loss at the hands of Pinkerton. The Bulldogs, who lead the division with 54 goals scored, face another major test Wednesday night at Concord and head to Nashua North/Souhegan Saturday.

No. 4 Concord, which picked up a win against No. 10 Nashua South/Pelham on MLK Day, can cause some serious disruption this week. The Crimson Tide – which has allowed a league low eight goals to date – has home dates against Bedford on Wednesday and Pinkerton on Saturday.

What a week for new No. 5 Trinity. The Pioneers vaulted three spots as they followed up their mid-week stunner of Hanover with a come-from-behind 4-2 decision of slumping BG Saturday night. They head to Hanover for a Wednesday rematch and host Manchester Central/West Saturday.
