For the time being, at least, new No. 1 Hollis-Brookline/Derryfield (2-0-0) has stamped itself as a team that certainly bears watching.

Facing Division 2 clubs exclusively, HBD ripped Alvirne/Milford and Merrimack by a cumulative 13-4 count to reach the title game of the Conway Arena Holiday Tournament where it fell to Keene, 2-0. NHIAA play resumes with a Saturday trip to Berlin/Gorham.

Without knowing any of the particulars, it’s hard to understand No. 2 John Stark/Hopkinton’s (2-0-0) showing at the Peter Hall Memorial Tournament. The reigning champion General Hawks were outscored, 18-7, while losing all three games.

No. 3 Belmont/Gilford (1-0-0) had the week off and resumes its NHIAA schedule Saturday at ConVal.

No. 4 Berlin/Gorham (1-1-0) played well at the all Tournament, losing only to D2 No. 1 Dover while knocking off Kennett and D2 Kingswood. The Mountaineers take on HBD in a key home game Saturday.

No. 5 Kennett (2-0-0) went 1-1-1 as Hall Tournament host. The Eagles pick up their NHIAA  schedule Thursday at D2 Alvirne/Milford and Saturday at JSH.

New No. 6 ConVal (1-0-1) went dark for the holidays and resumes NHIAA play Saturday against Belmont/Gilford.
