No. 1 Dover (4-0-0) doubled up Alvirne/Milford out of the break, 6-3. The Green Wave has certainly been efficient while outscoring opponents, 21-7. They are home against Winnacunnet Wednesday and visit Goffstown Friday afternoon (4:30 p.m.), a scheduling change from Saturday.

No. 2 Keene (2-0-1) returned to its NHIAA schedule with an 8-0 romp past Somersworth/Coe-Brown behind Jacob Russell’s 21-save performance. The Blackbirds visit Goffstown Wednesday and are home against Kingswood Saturday.

“It was great to find the back of the net as we have been dominating play and offensive zone time to start the season, but didn’t have many goals to show for it,” said Keene coach Chris McIntosh.

No. 3 Goffstown (4-1-0) suffered its first NHIAA loss to D1 Windham, 4-2. The week couldn’t be any busier for the Grizzlies with home games against NNS (Monday), Keene (Wednesday), Dover (Friday) and Somersworth/Coe-Brown (Saturday). The outcomes of the latter three will go a long way in determining where they fit in the overall pecking order.

No. 4 Somersworth/Coe-Brown (2-1-1) tied Oyster River before getting belted by Keene. The Bearcats host Merrimack Wednesday and visit Goffstown Saturday.

No. 5 Oyster River (1-1-1) played SCB to that tie in its only action of the week. The Bobcats also face a three-game week with visits by Kingswood (Monday) and St. Thomas Aquinas (Wednesday) preceding Saturday’s game at Spaulding.

No. 6 St. Thomas Aquinas (1-1-1) knocked off Winnacunnet Saturday, 5-2, and has a single game at Oyster River on Wednesday.

No. 7 Kingswood (1-1-0) had a dark week. The Knights resume action in earnest with a three-pack of tilts: at Oyster River (Monday), against Lebanon-Stevens/Mt. Royal (Wednesday) and at Keene (Saturday).

No. 8 Merrimack (1-0-0) will not have played an NHIAA game for three weeks when it resumes action at SCB on Jan. 11.
