It continues to be No.1 Concord (2-0-0; 6-0-0) and the rest of the pack in the early going of this season. Bedford gave the Crimson Tide a pretty good go of it in the Brian C. Stone Memorial Christmas Hockey Tournament but the defending State Champions twice prevailed by a pair of goals — 2-0 in pool play and 4-2 in the title game the following night. Tide freshman Trevor Craigue put home the game-winner — his first career goal. Concord senior goaltender Will Pegnam made 19 saves.

Concord kicks off a three-game week Monday against Trinity, heads to Hanover on Wednesday, then is home to Keene on Saturday.

A slight-reshuffling finds new No. 2 Bishop Guertin (1-0-1) with the opportunity to make a statement when it takes on Massachusetts D1 power St. John’s Prep Monday night at Skate-3 in Tyngsboro. The Cardinals head to Bow Wednesday and Salem Saturday.

New No.3 Bedford (2-0-0; 4-2-0) bumps up after its effort against Concord. Goals by Brandon Thornton and Matt Lapinsky gave the Bulldogs a 2-0 lead in the second period. They head to Exeter Wednesday, then square with Oyster River at home on Saturday.

No. 4 Exeter (1-0-1) slides after an empty week. The Blue Hawks are home on Wednesday against Bedford and Saturday against Pinkerton.

No. 5 Hanover (2-0-0; 2-2-0) takes on long-time rival Concord at home Wednesday, then treks to Londonderry Saturday.

No. 6 Londonderry (3-1-0; 4-2-1) shut out Pinkerton, 3-0, on Dec. 27. The Lancers visit Nashua South/Pelham Wednesday and host Hanover Saturday.

No. 7 Windham (3-1-0) squeezed past Nashua South/Pelham behind freshman goaltender Ethan Robinson’s 19 saves. Next up for the Jags are roadies at Bp. Brady Wednesday and Salem Saturday.

No. 8 Pinkerton (1-3-0; 3-3-0) hosts Nashua North/Souhegan Wednesday and heads to Exeter Saturday.

No, 9 Manchester (0-1-0; 3-1-0) doubled up Bow, 6-3, behind Lukas Tate’s hat trick.

No. 10 Bow (2-1-0; 2-2-0) rounds out the poll.
