New England Prep Hockey Rankings

Rank Record The Skinny
1 ...8-0-2 (2) ...
2 ...13-1-1 (4) ...
7 Dexter x-x-x(6) Team GAA/GPG: 3.67/2.29 -- Most days, Dexter has just enough up front. A lot of the offense springs from blue liners Matt Fusco, Sean Keohane, and Mick Frechette. Most of their games have been close one-goal decisions. And most of the time, they come out on top. LAST WEEK: Beat Gunn, 5-0; beat Culver, 5-4; beat New Hampton, 3-2. THIS WEEK: vs. Thayer (Fri.), vs. Brooks (Sat.)
8 Brunswick x-x-x
9 St. Mark's x-x-x(10) Team GAA/GPG: 5.00/1.95 -- Undefeated since a season-opening loss to Dexter. Schedule hasn't been too challenging: Dexter is the only team ranked in this poll the Lions have faced. #1 Belmont Hill on Wednesday will be a great test. Freshman Richard Gallant has at least 2 points in each of his last 7 games. Junior D Michael Fisher has a 10-game point streak going. LAST WEEK: Beat RL, 8-0; beat Rivers, 3-2. THIS WEEK: vs. Bel Hill (Wed.), vs. St. George's (Sat.)
10 Holderness x-x-x(N/R) Team GAA/GPG: 5.58/1.97 -- The Bulls make their debut in the USHR poll, and by that we mean first-ever. The Bulls have scoring depth, with 7 players averaging a point per game or better. And they have two good goalies in junior Evan Plunkett (1.66/.942) and senior Ethan Swanson (1.69/.940). True, Holderness has had a favorable schedule, but that will soon change as they face some challenging teams in the second half. LAST WEEK: Lost to New Hampton, 4-1; tied SPS, 1-1; beat Proctor, 6-3; beat Tilton, 8-2. THIS WEEK: at NYA (Wed.), vs. Gov's (Fri.)
