Now that it has found its way back to the top of the HNIB New Hampshire D2 Top 10, No. 1 Keene (12-1-1) seems disinclined to relinquish control any time soon.
The Blackbirds handled No. 10 Merrimack and Winnacunnet this week. They haven’t lost since the season opener and have outscored opponents, 55-17, during their 10-game NHIAA unbeaten run. This week they have a single home game against a strong Goffstown contingent on Wednesday.
No. 2 Windham (13-3-0) routed No. 8 Kingswood, 7-1, in its only game last week. The Jaguars head to Oyster River Monday in advance of Saturday’s home match against Alvirne.
No. 3 Goffstown continues to stalk the leaders. The Grizzlies blasted Bow, 10-2, then earned a season split with No. 7 Oyster River with Saturday’s 6-2 win. Their Wednesday visit to Keene is their only game of the week.
No. 4 St. Thomas Aquinas halted its mini-slide with wins against Oyster River, 2-0, and No. 9 Portsmouth/Newmarket, 5-4. The Saints seek a season series sweep of city rival Dover on Wednesday, then travel to Bp. Brady Saturday.
No. 5 Dover (12-4-1) is rolling again. The Green Wave stretched their winning streak to five games by knocking off Oyster River and Spaulding. In addition to Wednesday’s match-up against STA, they take on Bow Saturday.
