Moving up one spot is No. 6 Spaulding. They hung in there with Merrimack, losing 3-2 but were able to get a convincing win over St Thomas, 7-2. They’re in control of their own destiny and it’s starts with a game against Portsmouth followed by a battle with Oyster River.

No. 7 Somersworth/Coe-Brown dropped both of its games this week with a 4-3 loss to St Thomas in overtime and a 7-2 loss to Merrimack. They’ll get another crack at Merrimack this week followed by games against Timberlane and Alvirne-Milford.

No. 8 Goffstown won the games they had to this week when they beat Nashua South-Pelham and Mon-Fall Mountain-Conval. They lost a close one to Oyster River and are heading into a remarkably busy week.
