No. 1 LaSalle Academy continues to pace the field atop the HNIB Rhode Island Top 10 Poll. LaSalle took on Connecticut’s Xavier High School and represented the Ocean State well with a 2-1 win.

No. 2 Smithfield dumped Cranston, 5-0, and battled Mount St. Charles to a scoreless tie.

No. 3 Barrington had one game and took care of business with a 7-3 win over North Smithfield. It remains the only unbeaten team in the state.

No. 4 Mount St. Charles came out of last week unbeaten with a 3-2 win over Prout and scoreless deadlock with Smithfield.

No. 5 Moses Brown had a couple of tests with Burrillville and Hendricken and came out on top in both, beating Burrillville, 4-2, and Hendricken, 6-3.

No. 6 Bishop Hendricken took out its frustrations of a loss to LaSalle with two wins this past week: 11-1 over Prout and 3-0 over Cumberland. But it fell to Moses Brown to break up the momentum. Hendricken heads to the Pope Francis Invitational in Springfield MA this weekend.

No. 7 RMR nipped Portsmouth, 3-2, and dumped Toll Gate, 9-2.

No. 8 Coventry fell to Ponaganset, 4-2. 

New to the poll No. 9 Mount Hope topped Pilgrim, 4-2, and Scituate/Woonsocket, 4-2.

No. 10 Pilgrim fell to Mount Hope, 4-1, and rebounded with a 9-2 win over Narragansett/Chariho, 9-2.
