New Hampshire D3 Poll
It’s becoming apparent which six teams are most likely to qualify for this season’s downsized tournament. How the seeds shake out remains to be determined.
No. 1 John Stark/Hopkinton continues to be a cut above the rest. The Generals won three games this week by an aggregate 26-5 score and are now averaging seven goals per game. No. 6 Souhegan and Belmont-Gilford pose this week’s challenges.
Unbeaten No. 2 Kennett remains in close pursuit after a 6-0 whitewash of No. 8 Kearsage and Saturday’s 8-3 dismantling of Souhegan. The Eagles take on Berlin-Gorham and Sanborn this week.
No. 3 Belmont/Gilford handled Sanborn in its only action of the week. They will prep for their shot at JSH on Saturday with Wednesday’s skate against No. 7 Laconia-Winnisquam.
No. 4 Berlin/Gorham stays put despite a mid-week loss to Moultonborough/Inter-Lakes. The Mountaineers snapped a three-game slide Saturday against ConVal and face off with Kennett Wednesday.
No. 5 Moultonborough/Inter-Lakes moves up on the strength of its 3-2 win against Berlin/Gorham and a strong showing in Saturday’s 4-1 loss to JSH. The Renegades can move to the plus side of the ledger with wins against Manchester West and ConVal this week.
