*Overall records in parentheses

No. 1 Windham (9-1-0) seems determined to make good on its pre-season goal of doing something memorable in its final D2 campaign. The Jaguars toppled No.10 Portsmouth/Newmarket and Spaulding by a combined 15-1 count this past week and have now outscored D2 opponents, 41-2. They figure to be tested in their lone game this week on Wednesday at Dover.

No. 2 St. Thomas Aquinas remained in lockstep with Windham. The Saints enjoyed a three-win week, outscoring No. 8 Bow, Alvirne, and No. 9 Winnacunnet by a combined 19-5 count. The Saints now own a +28 differential in NHIAA play. Their lone game this week is Friday at Kingswood.

No. 3 Dover (6-2-1) stays put after playing Keene to a draw on Wednesday and knocking off Kingswood on Saturday. The Green Wave gets its shot at Windham on Wednesday then must be ready for Saturday’s trip to face a stout No. 6 Goffstown squad.

No. 4 Keene (6-2-1) continues to play steady hockey. The Blackbirds followed up that tie with Dover by doubling up No. 7 Lebanon-Stevens on Saturday, 4-2. Keene heads to Alvirne on Tuesday and returns home for Saturday’s match with Oyster River.

No. 5 Oyster River (6-1-0) knocked off Winnacunnet in its only game this week. The Bobcats take on Lebanon-Stevens Thursday before heading to Keene on Saturday.
