There is a shake-up at the top this week and the order is likely to change again next week as the top four teams cross paths multiple times.

No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas now stands as the league’s lone unbeaten after squeezing past No. 10 Kingswood on Friday. The Saints take on the two teams directly behind them – city rival Dover on Monday and Windham on Wednesday – this week.

No. 2 Windham (9-2-0) drops a notch after its first league loss to Dover on Wednesday. Following Wednesday’s date with STA, the Jaguars face off against Keene on Saturday. Both games are home.

After upending Windham, No. 3 Dover (7-3-1) fell to hard-charging Goffstown in a wide-open affair, 8-5. Following Monday’s date with STA, the Green Wave will be at home against No. 9 Alvirne on Saturday.

No. 4 Keene (8-2-1) picked up wins against Alvirne and No. 7 Oyster River during the week. The Blackbirds have picked up the pace on offense and have a week to prepare for Saturday’s visit to Windham.

No. 5 Goffstown continues to climb the ladder and put eight on the board against a Dover club that had yielded three or fewer goals in six games this year. Nashua South/Pelham and Winnacunnet provide this week’s opposition.
