TOP GAMES THIS WEEK
Some of the top games on this week’s NHIAA schedule …
Portsmouth (6-2) at Exeter (7-1)
These appear to be two of the top teams in the state, and will meet Monday in Exeter. Possible pitching matchup: Cam Keaveny (Exeter) vs. Boden Driscoll (Portsmouth)
Londonderry (7-1) at Pinkerton (6-2)
The Astros and Lancers each reached last year’s Division I championship game — Pinkerton prevailed — and will face each other Saturday in Derry. Londonderry and Exeter enter the week as only Division I teams with fewer than two losses.
Hanover (5-0) at Hollis/Brookline (6-1)
Hanover, one of two unbeatens remaining in Division II, will take the long bus ride to Hollis on Friday to meet last year’s Division II champions.
St. Thomas (6-0) at John Stark (4-2)
This is also a Friday matchup. John Stark handed Hollis/Brookline its first loss last week. Can the Generals do the same to St. Thomas?
Gilford (3-1) at Monadnock (6-0)
Can Gilford end Monadnock’s 31-game winning streak?
Sunapee (5-1) at Derryfield (6-1)
Each of these teams could go deep into the postseason. They’ll meet in Manchester on Monday.
Mascenic (4-2) at Newmarket (6-2)
Mascenic won the first matchup this season 10-6. Round 2 will be Wednesday in Newmarket.
White Mountains (3-1) at Littleton (7-0)
White Mountains is one of the top programs in Division III, and Littleton has one of the top programs in Division IV. They’ll be on the same field Monday.
