The division has seen a re-ordering since last we checked with a number of teams making significant moves. No. 1 Dover remains in place following its 3-1 win against No. 10 Winnacunnet.

The Green Wave squares off with No. 2 Goffstown Wednesday in Dover and entertains Spaulding on Saturday.

Goffstown roared out of the holiday break by dealing No. 6 Keene its first in-season loss in more than a year, 7-4, then held off No. 8 Somersworth/Coe-Brown 5-4. The Grizzlies face Alvirne/Milford in addition to Dover this week.

Following an opening loss to Dover, No. 3 Portsmouth/Newmarket has gone 3-0-1, including a well-played 1-1 skate with Alvirne/Milford on Saturday. The Clipper Mules will surely be tested in Wednesday’s cross-state trek to Keene.

No. 4 St. Thomas Aquinas has rattled off four straight wins since a season-opening loss to Keene. The Saints take on SCB Wednesday in their only game this week.

First-year co-op No. 5 Alvirne/Milford has shown itself to be a gritty, competitive crew. The Admirals host Merrimack Tuesday before that big road test at Goffstown Saturday.
