Many of the Top 10 teams took part in holiday tournaments this past week and most performed well, which should set up an interesting resumption of NHIAA play.
No. 1 Windham (7-1-0) shows no signs of slowing down, although the Jaguars did suffer their first loss to D1 Pinkerton in the Tuscan Kitchen Blue Devils Classic. The Jaguars have a busy week ahead of them, visiting No. 9 Portsmouth/Newmarket on Wednesday and Oyster River on Thursday before returning home against Spaulding on Saturday.
No. 2 St. Thomas Aquinas took on some stiff competition at the St. Dominic’s Winter Classic in Maine. The Saints are at struggling No. 8 Bow (1-6-0) Tuesday night, at Alvirne Wednesday and home to No. 10 Winnacunnet Saturday.
