No. 1 Saint Thomas had an impressive three-win week to stay unbeaten on the season. The Saints went to battle with Dover and escaped with a 4-3 win. They followed that up with an impressive 4-1 win over D1 Keene and a 7-1 win over Timberlane.  It’s shaping up to be a tough week ahead though as the Saints host D1 Windham on Wednesday and then Merrimack on Saturday.

Also remaining unbeaten is No.2 Winnacunnet. In their only action for the week, the Warriors tied Goffstown, 2-2.  Winnacunnet will head on the road for two games this week when they travel to Nashua South-Pelham and Alvirne-Milford. 

Continuing to play solid hockey is No. 3 Goffstown. For the second consecutive game and the third time this season, they played an overtime period in an attempt to register a win.  On Saturday they came out of it with a tie against Winnacunnet and now have two ties on the season. They’ll get Nashua North-Souhegan on Wednesday and Portsmouth on Saturday.

No. 4 Oyster River had most of the week off but had the rare, Sunday afternoon game. A well-rested Bobcats team had no problem with the Somersworth/Coe-Brown Bearcats in the 6-2 win. Some curious scheduling has them slated to take on Alvirne on Monday and D1 Bedford on Tuesday and then over a week off again. 

Sitting at 5-4 overall is No. 5 Somersworth/Coe-Brown.  They fell to Oyster River, 6-2 on Sunday and will now face rival Dover in a HUGE game for both squads on Saturday.

No. 6 Dover had a tough week dropping two games, both by the score of 4-3.  St Thomas edged them out in the MLK matinee game and the Merrimack Tomahawks bested them on Saturday.  They’ll have a get-right game vs Portsmouth midweek before they line up against Somersworth/Coe-Brown in what should be one of the games of the week for Division 2.

No. 7 Merrimack snuck by Dover, 4-3 on Saturday.  They’ll be looking to add to their two game win streak when they take on Nasua North-Souhegan and Spaulding.  They close out the week when they head east for a rematch with St Thomas. 

No. 8 Alvirne-Milford hosted Spaulding on Saturday and fell victim to Spaulding which registered its first win of the season, 5-2. It won’t get any easier with two tough games on the horizon for the Admirals – Oyster River and Winnacunnet.
