No. 1 Dover incurred its first blemish, a 2-2 tie against Kingswood, but rebounded with a 5-1 decision of Somersworth/Coe-Brown behind a pair of Nolan Laakso goals, including the game-winner. The Green Wave have home dates against No. 8 Spaulding and No. 6 Merrimack this week.

Make that nine in a row for once-beaten No. 2 Keene. The Blackbirds squeezed past D3 power Berlin-Gorham, 4-3, then toppled Lebanon, 5-3. Nathaniel Darwin (16 goals) is having a monster season for Keene, which is off until an intriguing visit to Kingswood Saturday.

No. 3 Bow had an explosive three-win week, scoring 27 goals while taking down Somerwsorth/Coe-Brown, Spaulding and Timberlane. The Falcons take on No. 10 Oyster River and No. 9 Goffstown this week.

No. 4 Portsmouth/Newmarket extended its winning streak to six games, knocking off Spaulding, 4-2, and D3 Kearsage/Plymouth, 1-0. Road dates against Merrimack and Hollis-Brookline/Derryfield are on tap this week.

No. 5 Kingswood jumped up four spots on the strength of its holiday tie with Dover and followed up with wins against D3 foes Moultonborough/Interlakes and Kennett. A visit to Somerworth/Coe-Brown precedes Saturday’s home date with Keene.
