Bishop Hendricken moves into the #1 spot in the HNIB News Rhode Island Top 8 this week, thanks to a 10-goal performance coupled with LaSalle’s loss to Prout. The Hawks did drop a pair of games to Connecticut opponents Notre Dame and Woodstock Academy

Cumberland (7-0-1) – is up to #2. The Clippers are still unbeatenRight there with Warwick and Cumberland as one of the top teams in D1 that can rattle some cages some playoff time. Most recently, Cumberland knocked off Barrington, 4-1.

LaSalle (5-3-1) fell to Prout, 3-2, and also lost 4-1 to CT’s Fairfield Prep, which drops it to the third spot for this week.

#4 Warwick Co-op had a big win over East Greenwich, and most recently blanked Mansfield (MA) 3-0. They should give the top teams a run for their money.

#5 Mt. St. Charles (5-8-0) still can’t be overlooked, as the Mounties are 4-3 in league play. They responded well after a loss to Cumberland.

A newcomer to the rankings this week is #6 Prout (9-4-0), on the strength of the big win over LaSalle this past weekend.

#7 Lincoln (7-2-0) finally had a loss, falling to both Ponaganset in state play, and to Woodstock Academy (CT) in non-league play.

#8 Portsmouth (5-3-1) rounds out the rankings this week, and remains one of the teams to beat in Division 2.
