A fast start in league play – including a solid 5-2 road win at Bishop Guertin – coupled with four wins in four outings at its own Tuscan Blue Devils Classic – one of them a 3-1 decision of Division 1 Massachusetts entry Mansfield – earns Salem (3-0-0) the top spot in the first regular-season poll.

 

No. 2 Nashua North (2-0-0), unranked to start the season, has averaged seven goals per game in two league wins and powered its way into the Conway Tournament title game.

 

No. 3 Bishop Guertin (1-1-0) will look to build on experience gained at the Mt. Saint Charles (RI) Tournament, including a 4-0 win against LaSalle College HS (PA).

 

No. 4 St. Thomas Aquinas (1-1-0), the pre-season No. 1, dropped its opener but will look to gain momentum from its 2-0 win against Dover at the Heuchling/Swift Memorial Classic.

 

No. 5 Manchester Memorial (2-0-1) is off to a solid start in defense of its State title although it did absorb a lopsided loss to Hanover at the Bauer Christmas Classic.

 

No. 6 Trinity (1-1-0) made its presence known immediately with a season-opening win against STA and defeated top-ranked Division 2 power Bedford Sunday night to win the Bauer Christmas Classic for the second consecutive year.

 

Based on its wins against Memorial and Concord at the Bauer Classic, No. 7 Hanover (1-1-0) bears watching.

 

No. 8 Central (1-1-0) started slowly at the Bauer but played its way into the consolation game with wins against Division 2 entries Merrimack and Goffstown.

 

No. 9 Londonderry (1-2-0) picked up the pace with three wins at the Tuscan Blue Devils Classic, scoring 18 goals in the process.

 

No. 10 Pinkerton (0-1-1) looks to gather momentum after a win and two ties against Maine opponents at the Blue Devil Classic.
