No. 1 Spaulding continued its march toward perfection with a three-win week, highlighted by Wednesday’s 5-3 win against Windham and followed up by Saturday’s 4-2 decision of a pesky Kingswood club. Wrapping up the top seed in the tournament is at the top of the agenda for Spaulding as it closes the regular season this week against No. 7 Goffstown, No. 6 Bow and Oyster River.

Prior to this week, No. 2 Windham hadn’t suffered a D2 loss; now the Jaguars have two. Kingswood pulled off the 5-3 upset on President’s Day, then Spaulding matched that score on Wednesday. Windham faces off with Dover Wednesday, looking to hang onto the second seed in the tournament.

No. 3 Dover upended No. 10 Keene and Portsmouth/Newmarket earlier this week, then belted Bow on Sunday, 5-1, in a makeup. The Green Wave look to pass Windham with a win Wednesday.

No. 4 Merrimack handled both Somersworth-Coe Brown and Oyster River, extending its winning streak to four games. The Tomahawks look to build momentum into the tournament with remaining games against Hollis-Brookline/Derryfield and Pembroke-Campbell.

By splitting games against Windham and Spaulding, No. 5 Kingswood has shown itself to be a potentially very dangerous tournament draw. The regular-season schedule concludes with games against No. 9 Winnacunnet and Hollis-Brookline/Derryfield.
