It took until the last week of the season but we have a new leader in the rankings. Preseason favorite, No. 1 Windham, takes over the top spot after putting together a thirteen-game unbeaten streak including wins over Nashua North-Souhegan and Pinkerton in the final week.

After going 3-3 in their last six games, No. 2 Concord drops a spot. The Tide was on cruise control for most of the season but they hit a couple of speed bumps in the last couple of weeks including back-to-back losses to Keene and Hanover to close out the season.

No. 3 Londonderry currently sits as the second seed in the NHIAA standings heading into the postseason with their only blemishes being two losses to Concord and one to Windham. The expectations will be high for the Lancers in the playoffs.

No. 4 Hanover started the season 1-4 and the mountain looked steep ahead of them. The Bears took control and marched to an 11-2 record since then including two big wins over Concord. They’re as confident as any team as they head to the playoffs and that could spell trouble for everyone else.

No. 5 Bishop Guertin heads to the postseason having won four straight and seven of the last nine. Wins over Salem and Exeter in the final week helped the Cardinals build some much-needed momentum. They’ve been down this road before and they know how to win when it counts.

No. 6 Bow finished with a solid 11-7 record over all but were 3-3 in the month of February. They’ll be looking to come out hot to start the playoffs to avoid the first-round exit.

After going 1-4 in their last five games, No. 7 Salem will need to right their ship in the brief layoff before the first post season game. They dropped decisions to Bishop Guertin and Bow to end the regular season.

 No. 8 Manchester Co-op is making a return to postseason play after playing well down the stretch. The shutout Bow before falling to Londonderry in the final game. You can bet the Kings will be ready to go when the puck drops for playoffs.

Rising from the ashes, No. 9 Keene put together an impressive three game winning streak to clinch a playoff spot. They beat Concord and Bedford in two must-win games in the final week to get in and the Blackbirds believe they can make some noise in March.

No. 10 Pinkerton squeaked into the playoffs despite going 1-4 in their final five games. They’ll have their hands full with whoever their first round match up is but they’ve pulled out a few big wins during the season so they have the potential.
