New Hampshire D3 Boys Top 8
Undefeated No.1 John Stark Hopkinton keeps on trucking, although it ceded five goals – one-third of its season total – in Saturday’s 6-5 win against No. 6 Moultonborough/Inter-Lakes. JSH picked up a solid win vs. Kearsage/Plymouth earlier in the week, 6-1.
The General Hawks head to Monadnock/Fall Mountain for a key clash Wednesday, and return home to face ConVal/Conant Saturday. Although three of their last wins have been by a single goal, JSH has outscored opponents, 87-15.
No. 2 Belmont/Gilford’s prolonged roll (11-of-12) continued with this week’s routs of Laconia/Winnisquam, 12-1, and Sanborn, 7-0 – far and away B/G’s two biggest outputs of the season. They are off until Saturday’s visit by rival Berlin.
No. 3 Monadnock/Fall Mountain shut out No. 8 Kennett, 4-0, Saturday in its only action this week. MFM faces a busy stretch, taking on JSH (Wednesday), Hollis/Brookline-Derryfield (Friday) and Sanborn (Sunday) in a space of five days.
No. 4 Berlin swept past Moultonborough/Inter-Lakes, 7-2, and edged No. 7 Pembroke/Campbell, 5-4, in a productive week. A trip to D2 Lebanon-Stevens/Mount Royal is on the docket for Wednesday.
No. 5 Hollis/Brookline-Derryfield outlasted Laconia/Winnisquam Saturday, 6-4, and hits the road for a trifecta this week – at CVC (Sunday), at Sanborn (Thursday) and at MFM (Friday).
