  4. Chatham (7-1-3)
    Last week: beat Morris Knolls 3-1, tied Randolph 2-2
    Staying unbeaten in Mennen Division play (4-0-3) is no easy feat; every other team has at least two division losses and at least three total losses.

    Last week: beat Hillsborough 2-1, beat Southern Regional 5-3

  7. St. Joseph Metuchen (9-2-1)

  8. Ramsey (12-2-0)
    Last week: beat Summit 3-1, beat Wayne Hills 9-0, beat Lakeland 5-0
    After getting back on track with a strong 3-1 win over Summit, Ramsey will take aim at the Bergen County Tournament title that eluded them last year.

  9. Morristown-Beard (7-4-3)
    Last week: beat Randolph 3-0, beat Morris Knolls 11-1, lost to West Morris 2-3, beat Princeton Day 5-2
    The state’s most inconsistent team, the Crimson crushed division rival Morris Knolls by a resounding 11-1 (anyone remember the last 10-goal game between Mennen Division foes?), only to fall to Halvorsen Division foe West Morris two days later by a 3-2 margin. Morristown-Beard remains capable of skating with the state’s top private schools on its best days.
    This week: Thur vs. Mendham, Sat at Kinnelon
  10. Randolph (7-3-2)
    Last week: Lost 0-3 to Morristown-Beard, beat St. Joseph Montvale 3-1, tied Chatham 2-2
    After splitting with Morristown-Beard, the Rams bounced back with two solid results last week but still have work to do to hold off Morris Knolls for third place in the Mennen Division.
    This week: Wed vs. Livingston, Fri vs. Morristown
