Defending champion No. 1 Bp. Guertin got its season off to a rousing start, breezing to victories against Manchester Central and Exeter by a combined 14-3 count. Senior Justin Pearson had seven goals in the first two games for the Cardinals, who make their annual trek to the Mount St. Charles Holiday Face-Off tournament this week.
No. 2 Bedford bumps up one spot after outscoring Pinkerton and Alvirne-Pelham by a combined 13-1 in its first two games. Griffin Gagne and Colin Voloshin are off to fast starts for the Bulldogs, who are taking part in the Bauer Holiday Classic that finishes on Monday. They blanked Manchester Central Saturday, 4-0.
No. 3 Concord drops one spot through no fault of its own — the Crimson Tide has only played one pre-holiday game. Concord is also taking part in the Bauer Classic and rolled past Trinity Saturday, 6-2.
No. 4 Manchester Memorial jumps four spots, opening with three straight wins against Hanover, Trinity and Manchester Central behind the trio of Zach Pelletier, Jakob Poitras and Brendan Johnson. Memorial squeezed past Division 2 Bow Saturday at the Bauer, 2-1.
No. 5 Pinkerton sandwiched wins against St. Thomas Aquinas and Salem around a loss to Bedford and is participating in the Tuscan Blue Devil Classic that wraps up on Monday.
