Both must tend to business earlier in the week but the rematch is set for Saturday at 4 p.m. when undefeated No. 1 Keene hosts once-beaten No. 2 Bow. The Blackbirds won the first meeting back in December, 3-0.

Keene soared past No. 7 Goffstown, 8-3, Wednesday in its only action of the week. They take on D1 Nashua North/Pelham Monday.

Bow climbed out of a two-goal hole and exploded for five third-period goals in Saturday’s 6-3 win against Dover. The Falcons face Timberlane in advance of Keene.

No. 3 Windham toppled No. 6 Oyster River Wednesday, 6-3, in its only game of the week. Games against No. 8 St. Thomas Aquinas and Winnacunnet are on tap this week.

No. 4 Dover endured a tough week, getting shut out by in-town rival STA in addition to falling to Bow after having won seven straight. The Green Wave faces off against Lebanon-Stevens Wednesday and Oyster River Friday.

No. 5 Spaulding jumped up two spots with wins against Kingswood and No. 10 Merrimack and has won five of six. It’s a busy week with roadies at No. 9 Portsmouth/Newmarket Wednesday and Oyster River Thursday before Saturday’s home game against STA
