No 1. Concord showed why they have remained on the top of the HNIB News New Hampshire Division 1 Top 10 after dominating the much-ballyhooed meeting with Bishop Guertin, 8-2.  They also dispatched Bow earlier in the week, 5-1.  They’ll face Trinity in an afternoon game on Monday before a nine-day layoff.

Staying at No.2 is Bishop Guertin. They doubled up Bedford, 4-2 but took it on the chin in the big game of the week with Concord.  It doesn’t get easier for the Cardinals. They head to Massachusetts to take on Arlington Catholic in a Monday matinee. 

No. 3 Salem is reeling a bit after two straight losses. Windham came to town and beat the Blue Devils, 6-1 and Hanover got the best of them in a 5-2 win.  They’ll try to turn things around when they face Londonderry and Exeter this week.

No. 4 Bedford went 1-1 for the week in games against the two Bishops. The Bulldogs fell to Bishop Guertin, 4-2 but rebounded with a decisive win over Bishop Brady, 8-2.  A challenging two-game week lies ahead with games against Exeter and Pinkerton.

Climbing the ladder and moving up two spots is No. 5 Hanover.   With back-to-back wins against Exeter, (2-0) and Salem (5-2), Hanover is quietly sneaking up on some teams.  They’ll face Nashua South-Pelham this week.

Another team on the move is No.6 Windham.  They jumped up three spots this week after steam-rolling Salem, 6-1 and shutting out Manchester Central/West/Memorial, 4-0.  The Jags are on a four-game win streak and take on Londonderry in their only action this upcoming week.

No. 7 Exeter righted their ship in a 2-1 win over Keene at the Rinks.  They were shutout earlier in the week, 2-0 by Hanover.  Their record sits at 3-4 with two potentially tough games coming up with Bedford and Salem. 

No. 8 Keene holds tight in the eighth spot this week.  They beat Bishop Brady 6-0 and then had a very competitive game with Exeter but came up on the losing side of a 2-1 score.  They’ll face their former D2 rival, St Thomas on Wednesday and Manchester Co-op on Saturday. 

Inching up a spot is No. 9 Pinkerton. Early in the week the Astros thumped Londonderry, 8-2 but fell in overtime to an up-and-down Bow team, 4-3.  They’ll host Nashua North -Souhegan on Tuesday before returning home to take on Bedford.

No. 10 Londonderry falls a few spots after going 1-1 for the week.  They got walloped by Pinkerton, 8-2 but regrouped and got a big win over Nashua North -Souhegan, 7-2.   Salem and Windham are on deck this week so they’ll have to be on their game.
