7 Choate x-x-xThe top line carries the offense. Secondary scoring has been close to non-existent. Getting Charley Borek could help balance the lines. Before 5-2 loss to rival Deerfield on Sat., the Wild Boars had only given up four goals over three games, so defensively they have been good. And they have quality wins over Westy and Brunswick.
8 St. Sebastian's x-x-x
9 Brunswick x-x-xPlaying a tough early schedule and handling it fine. They beat Kent on Wed., only allowing the visitors 3 shots in the third period. This would be the same Kent team that rebounded with a win over Salisbury. Other key wins have been over Taft & Hotchkiss. Only loss has been to Choate. Junior Brian Ketchabaw has a .948 save %.
10 Berkshire x-x-xG Spencer Cookson (.974) has two straight shutouts. Only two goals he's allowed in the season came in the Bears' only loss, to Taft. They play a solid team game, but not sure they have the depth to stay up here.
* Note: Only games between NEPSIHA Div. I schools -- the principal factor in determining seedings for the playoffs -- are included in the won-lost records above.
