Who keeps going strong? Wait, strong is an understatement. No. 1 LaSalle is making history on the ice this year, where it keeps winning and winning and winning. The Rams this past week took care of Bishop Hendricken (4-1) and Smithfield (5-2) to remain unbeaten.

The Mounties got the bump this week with a perfect week. No. 2 Mount St. Charles climbed after beating Hamden of Connecticut, 7-1, and Moses Brown, 4-1. The Mounties have won 9-of-10, their only setback to LaSalle Jan. 31.

No. 3 Bishop Hendricken, meanwhile, came back after the loss to the state’s #1 and beat Fairfield Prep of Connecticut, 4-3, in overtime in the Pope Francis tourney. The Hawks fell to Pope Francis in the finals, giving them a 1-2 week.

No. 4 Cumberland stayed put after a pair of wins. That allowed the team to get back on track after a couple of non-wins the week prior – also known as ties. This week, Cumberland beat Coventry, 2-1, and Portsmouth, 4-1.

No. 5 South Kingstown tied PCD/St. Rays/Wheeler, 6-6, and fell to North Smithfield, 4-1.

No.6 Burrillville is moving on up. It has won four out of its last five Rhode Island league games, including a solid 7-1 decision over Smithfield Feb. 7.

No. 7 Barrington is also climbing. The Eagles picked up a couple of wins in a row in the state, beating Moses Brown, 4-2, and Prout/Scituate, 5-2. Big matchup for the Eagles on Valentine’s Day: On the road against Hendricken.

No. 8 Lincoln suffered its first loss – 4-1 to No. 10 East Greenwich – since Jan. 11. Still, we’re not ready to vault EG over Lincoln despite the win. Lincoln still has won five out of six. East Greenwich hasn’t lost since Jan. 21.

No. 9 Smithfield dropped several spots following a tough week, suffering 7-1 (Burrillville) and 5-2 (LaSalle) setbacks. It looks to rebound Feb. 12 at East Greenwich.
