No. 1 St. Thomas Aquinas (2-0-0; 5-0-0) resumes action after a long layoff with home games against OR, Alvirne/Milford and Dover, an MLK Day matinee at 1. Expect the joint to be jumping in the season’s first meeting of the city rivals

No. 2 Oyster River (3-1-0) visits St. Thomas Aquinas Wednesday then steps up to take on D1 Bow on Sunday. OR gave D1 Bedford all it could handle Saturday in a 4-2 loss.

No. 3 Portsmouth/Newmarket (5-1-0) is the big mover this week, taking care of business with a lockdown defense. The Clipper Mules lost to Oyster River in December but Wednesday’s 4-3 win against Somersworth/Coe-Brown certainly opened some eyes. They take on Kingswood and Goffstown this week.

No. 4 SCB (3-1-0; 5-1-0) will look to regroup from that loss with games at Dover and against Spaulding.

No. 5 Dover (2-2-0) visits Spaulding and is home against SCB before squaring off with STA. If we didn’t say it yet “Get there early!”

No. 6 Goffstown (3-2-0) squeezed past Winnacunnet, 3-2, on goals by Noah Andronaco and Cooper Kinnaly. They face a three-game road test this week with visits to Spaulding, Nashua/South/Pelham and Portsmouth/Newmarket.

No. 7 Kingswood (4-3-0) cracks the poll and hits the road for games against Portsmouth/Newmarket and Merrimack.

No. 8 Merrimack (0-1-0; 1-1-0) visits Kingswood Saturday
