7 St. Sebastian's x-x-x(10) The 3 games Arrows have lost thus far were close contests against solid teams (Brunswick, Nobles, and Belmont Hill). Seb's has talented underclassmen, and experienced seniors to lead the way. Their schedule is tough the rest of the way, though, with games against LA (2x), and a chance to avenge those losses to Nobles and Belmont Hill. They average 4.77 GPG, and allow 1.73. LAST WEEK: Beat Tabor, 5-3. THIS WEEK: @ Andover (Wed.), vs. Gov's. (Sat.)
8 Brunswick x-x-x
9 Noble & Greenough x-x-x(9) Over two-thirds of Nobles' goals come from 3 players: Casey Severo (14), Jack Cronin (9), and David Jacobs (8). Losses have come to Pomfret (in the season opener), Dexter, Hotchkiss, and LA. Nobles has won 5 of 6 in the new decade. Their schedule the rest of the way includes a rematch vs. LA on Friday. Nobles could use a little secondary scoring. The Bulldogs' team GPG is 3.36; GAA is 2.23. LAST WEEK: lost to LA, 5-4; beat Middlesex, 4-1. THIS WEEK: vs. LA (Fri.), @ Andover (Sat.)
10 Kent x-x-x(6) Kent has hit a bump, losing 3 of their last 4. Two were to teams in this poll. The other was to Trinity-Pawling, a game in which the Lions blew a 4-2 third-period lead and wound up losing in OT. Then they got smacked by Avon, 6-0. Kent must get back to their winning ways @ Hotchkiss this Wednesday. LAST WEEK: Lost to T-P, 5-4 (OT), lost to Avon, 6-0. THIS WEEK: @ Hotchkiss (Wed.), vs. Salisbury (Sat.)
