When you complete your second consecutive undefeated regular season, you stay on top and that just where No. 1 Concord resides this week.  Bishop Guertin gave them a game but ultimately the Tide came out on top 3-0.  Concord finished strong with a 5-2 win over Keene and a 3-1 win at Hanover. They are the top seed and will host a quarterfinal game on Saturday.

No. 2 Windham has proven that they’ll be one of the major players in the Division 1 tournament.  Winners of fourteen out of their last fifteen games, the Jaguars closed out the regular season with a 3-2 win over Pinkerton and a 7-0 shutout over Nashua North-Souhegan.  Windham will host a quarterfinal game at home on Saturday.

Wrapping up their regular season with back-to-back wins is No. 3 Bishop Guertin.  BG fell 3-0 to Concord but came back to beat Salem and Exeter in their final two games, both by a score of 4-1.  They’ll host a quarterfinal game on Saturday.

No. 4 Bedford dropped a 5-0 decision to Exeter and then held off Keene 2-1 to close out their regular season. The Bulldogs were winners of six of their last seven games and that’s enough to earn them a home playoff game.  They host a quarterfinal game on Saturday.

After opening the season with a 1-3 record, No. 5 Trinity has flourished, only losing three more games over the final two months of the season.  They rattled off three straight wins to end the season with a 3-2 win at Hanover, an 8-4 win over Bishop Brady and an 8-1 win at Nashua North-Souhegan.  They’ll will be at Bedford in a quarterfinal matchup on Saturday.

No. 6 Exeter split their last two games going 1-1. They had a convincing 5-0 shutout win over Bedford but dropped a 4-1 game to Bishop Guertin.  The Blue Hawks will host a Preliminary Round game at home on Wednesday. 

No. 7 Keene had a tough final two games and they dropped both of them.  They fell to Concord 5-2 and lost to Bedford 2-1.  They finish ninth in the NHIAA Division 1 standings and will head on the road in their Prelim game on Wednesday.

No. 8 Londonderry finished strong winning their last three games including an 8-4 win over Nashua South-Pelham and a 4-3 win over the Manchester Co-op.  The Lancers get to host a Prelim game on Wednesday.

Saving their best for last and making their first appearance in the HNIB rankings this season is No. 9 Bow.  The Falcons started their season with a 1-6 record and were written off by many but Bow clawed themselves all the way back to relevance.  They finished sixth overall in NHIAA and will host a prelim game on Wednesday.

No. 10 Hanover had a tough schedule to finish their season and went 1-2 in the last three games.  They sandwiched a 3-2 win at Pinkerton between a 3-2 loss to Trinity and a 3-1 loss to Concord.  They’ll go on the road for a Prelim game on Wednesday.
