7 Belmont Hill x-x-x(N/R) TEAM GPG/GAA: 3.47/2.21 -- Like Tabor, Milton, and Taft, Bel Hill is a low-scoring team that relies on sound defense. Freshman goalie J.J. Thibodeau (2.14/.899) has held opponents to two or fewer goals 9 times in 13 starts. Team allows an average of 21 shots per game. Since Dec. 30th, Belmont Hill has gone 4-1-2. Are 2-2-2 vs. poll teams. MOST RECENTLY: Beat Thayer, Gov's, St. Mark's; tied Tabor. THIS WEEK: vs. SPS (Sat.)
8 St. Mark's x-x-x
9 Taft x-x-x(4) TEAM GPG/GAA: 3.40/2.54 -- They're wobbling. After knocking off previously undefeated Avon on Jan. 7th, Taft has gone 2-3-0. The Rhinos -- like Tabor, Milton, and Belmont Hill -- are a low-scoring team. They'll only go as far as junior G Rudy Guimond (2.43, .944) takes them. In his first 9 games this season, the Yale recruit allowed as many as 3 goals just once. In his last 3 starts, it's happened twice (Westy nicked him for 5; NMH for 4). MOST RECENTLY: Beat Choate and Canterbury; lost to Westy, Loomis and NMH. THIS WEEK: @ Kent (Wed.), vs. T-P (Sat.)
10 St. Sebastian's x-x-x(7) TEAM GPG/GAA: 3.56/1.91 -- The Arrows are one of those rare teams with zero seniors. Despite that, they're having a surprisingly good season, and are a fun team to watch. Junior G Pelle Russo (1.82, .941) has been a difference-maker. He's allowed more than 3 goals in a game just once all season. That was to Nobles in early January. He gave up 4 in that one. MOST RECENTLY: Beat Middlesex; tied Tabor and Andover; lost to Gov's. THIS WEEK: @ Nobles (Wed.), vs. Thayer (Fri.)
