It took three months into the season but No. 1 Concord finally suffered its first loss, a 4-1 defeat to Hanover. The Tide came storming back and knocked off Exeter and Londonderry to right their ship. Their final week takes them to Bedford and Keene before returning home to take on Hanover again.

No. 2 Windham has found its groove. After convincing wins over Trinity and Salem this week, Windham extends its unbeaten streak to eleven games. Nashua North-Souhegan and Pinkerton are the final two regular season matchups for the Jaguars.

It’s been an outstanding season for No. 3 Londonderry with only three losses and they have their sights set on a deep run into the playoffs. Nashua South-Pelham and the Manchester Co-Op are the two remaining games in the regular season.

No. 4 Hanover moves up a spot after taking down previously unbeaten Concord. They followed that up with a win over Nashua North-Souhegan but fell to Keene, 2-1. Pinkerton comes to town midweek before they’ll face a Concord team that will be looking to avenge that loss from last week.

No. 5 Bishop Guertin posted back-to-back shutouts this week first with a 3-0 win over the Manchester Co-Op and a 1-0 win over Bedford. The Cardinals hope to finish strong as they wrap up the regular season with games against Salem and Exeter.

No. 6 Bow had a quiet week with only one game, a 3-1 win over Nashua South-Pelham. The Manchester Co-Op and Salem are up next in their last two games.

No. 7 Salem has been steady all season and that continued this past week. They took down Bedford but dropped a decision to Windham. They have two challenging matchups on the docket this week. A road game against Bishop Guertin and a home game to wrap things up against Bow.

Currently on the outside, looking in is No. 8 Bedford. They are still very capable of pulling off big wins. If they want to play in March, they’ll need some magic against Concord, Exeter, and Keene to close out their season.

No. 9 Nashua North-Souhegan beat two Division 2 opponents but they lost a close one to Hanover. They’ll face a rivalry game with Nashua South before facing a strong Windham team and wrapping up against Trinity. Two wins should get them in to post-season play.

No 10 Manchester Co-Op is clinging to its playoff lives after going 1-2 this past week. They are in control of their own destiny and can punch their ticket in the final week when they take on the Bishop Brady Co-Op, Bow and Londonderry.
