No 1. Concord remains at the top of the HNIB News New Hampshire Division 1 Top 10 after back-to-back, 5-0 shutouts over Bedford and Pinkerton. They’ll travel to Bow midweek with an eye on a heavyweight battle later in the week with Bishop Guertin (Saturday, 7:30pm at Everett Arena).

Also remaining undefeated and moving up a spot is No. 2 Bishop Guertin. The Cardinals dismantled Exeter on their home ice in a 7-3 win before returning home and handing Trinity a 4-1 loss.  They’ll face Bedford and Concord this week in two must-see matchups.

In its only action of the week, No. 3 Salem rolled over Bishop Brady, 10-0 to remain unbeaten.  The Blue Devils host Windham and Hanover this week, two teams that are starting to make some noise in the division.  Can Salem rise to the occasion?

No. 4 Bedford suffered a 5-0 shutout loss to Concord in their only game this week but they stay in the fourth spot in the rankings. They’ll have their hands full with Bishop Guertin on deck this week followed by a struggling Bishop Brady squad.

No. 5 Exeter got outplayed by a strong Guertin team, falling 7-3 but the Blue Hawks were able to regroup and post a 7-1 victory over Manchester Central/West. They’re hanging onto the fifth spot for now with Hanover and Keene coming up this week.

No. 6 Londonderry inched up a spot after taking out Hanover, 4-2 in the lone game for the Lancers this week.  They’ll face Pinkerton at home and then travel to Nashua South-Souhegan to cap the week.  

Our biggest mover of the week is No. 7 Hanover.  Despite dropping a 4-2 decision to Londonderry, Hanover has been competitive against some tough teams and warranted a move up three spots.  They’ll be tested this week when they host Exeter and travel to Salem. 

Also moving up this week is No. 8 Keene. After defeating Division 2 Merrimack 6-4 and Nashua South 6-1, the Blackbirds move to 3-2 overall. They’ll play Bishop Brady at home and then make the trip south to take on an enigmatic Exeter team to close out their week. 

No. 9 Windham reappears in the top 10 after a two-win week.  An 8-2 drubbing of Division 2 Dover and a 3-2 win over Bow put the Jaguars back in sight.  They’ll have to have good showings this week against Salem and Manchester Central/West to stay.

No. 10 Pinkerton fell to Concord, 5-0 in the only game of the week for the Astros. Londonderry and Bow are up next.
