No. 1 John Stark/Hopkinton comes off a dark week and dives into a four-game bonanza this week. It starts with home games against Laconia/Winnisquam (Monday) and Kearsage/Plymouth (Tuesday) and concludes with roadies at Belmont/Gilford (Wednesday) and Berlin/Gorham (Saturday).

No. 2 Belmont/Gilford climbs two notches on the strength of its solid 4-0 MLK Day shutout of Monadnock/Fall Mountain. They get their shot at JSH at home Wednesday and close the week Saturday at home against ConVal/Conant.

No. 3 Monadnock/Fall Mountain rebounded from that loss to Belmont/Gilford with a 5-0 mid-week shutout of CVC. The Huskies are home to Pembroke/Campbell Wednesday in their lone game this week.

No. 4 Berlin/Gorham knocked off No. 8 Pembroke/Campbell Saturday, 4-1, in its only game. The Mounties have a three-date slate this week: Monday’s home date with D2 Lebanon/Stevens/Mount Royal, Wednesday’s visit to Kennett, and Saturday’s visit by JSH.

New No. 5 Hollis-Brookline/Derryfield swapped spots with No. 6 Moultonborough/Inter-Lakes on the strength of Saturday’s 3-2 head-to-head win that extended a modest three-game winning streak. HBD is home to both Kearsage/Plymouth and Kennett this week.
