While there is minimal movement this week, there was one very significant upset as Hanover climbed into the Top Five with its 3-2 win against Bishop Guertin on Saturday.

No. 1 Bedford keeps swatting aside one opponent after another. The Bulldogs completed a three-win week in which they scored 24 goals by dismantling No. 6 Pinkerton Saturday, 9-1. Bedford hosts Manchester Memorial and travels to Trinity this week.

No. 2 Concord stretched its winning streak to seven games, methodically dispatching Exeter and Nashua South/Pelham. Sound two-way play has been the hallmark of the Crimson Tide streak. Visits to Memorial and No. 8 Manchester Central on tap this week.

After shutting out Arlington (MA) Catholic, 2-0, on the holiday, No. 3 Bishop Guertin came up short in Saturday night’s loss to Hanover. The Cardinals cross the border again in their lone game this week, facing off with Central Catholic on Saturday.

No. 4 Londonderry edged No. 7 Salem in its only game this week and continues to play sound hockey. A mid-week visit to Pinkerton is followed by Saturday’s tilt with Nashua North/Souhegan.

No. 5 Hanover followed a mid-week win against Memorial with Saturday night’s stunner against Guertin. The Marauders will look to build on that with road tests at No. 9 Exeter and Trinity.
