No. 1 Bow and No. 2 Merrimack wrapped up their regular seasons a week ago, giving both plenty of time to refine all aspects of their respective games heading into the tournament.

For others, though, a bit of work remained.

NNE-Festival-Ad-300x250No. 3 Portsmouth/Newmarket continued its February climb up the rankings by pounding Pembroke/Campbell in its finale, 9-3. First-year coach Bill Widi’s club was 6-1-1 this month and won 13 of 16 after starting the season with two losses.

It’s been a spotty second half for No. 4 Dover. The defending champions defeated No. 9 Oyster River early in the week but fell to No. 6 Windham in overtime Saturday, 2-1, on the second of Bryce Blanchard’s goals. Dover is just 4-5 in its last nine.

No. 5 Keene closed out its season a week ago. Of note — No. 7 Goffstown vaulted two spots in the final regular-season poll with wins against Hollis-Brookline/Derryfield and Windham.
