There is a bit of re-ordering in this week’s HNIB News New Hampshire D2 Top 10 following what was essentially a week of round-robin play among four of the top five squads.

Despite suffering its first NHIAA loss to Windham on Wednesday, No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas stays put. The Saints handled city rival Dover, 4-1, on MLK Day. They are off to Goffstown Wednesday in their lone game this week.

No. 2 Keene (9-1-1) climbs two spots following its solid 5-2 decision of Windham Saturday, the Blackbirds’ lone game this week. They have another light week, traveling to No. 10 Kingswood on Wednesday.

No. 3 Windham (10-3-0) had the momentum of the win against STA blunted by the loss to Keene. The Jaguars have a rare home-and-home against No. 8 Bow this week – home on Wednesday and at Bow on Saturday.

No. 4 Goffstown has inserted itself into the conversation with a six-game winning streak. D1 Nashua South/Pelham and Winnacunnet were their latest victims. Wednesday’s home test against STA will provide a good indication of where the Grizzlies stand. That is followed by a visit to Kingswood

No. 5 Dover (8-4-1) halted a two-game NHIAA skid with a 5-2 win against No. 9 Alvirne Saturday. The Green Wave head to Timberlane Wednesday and host Merrimack Saturday.
