Week 3 Recap

Coaches' Polls

Division 1 - Pinkerton reclaims the top spot from Timberlane after Timberlane sat on top for two weeks. Timberlane drops to #2. Winnacunnet remains at #3. Guertin stays perfect, but falls to #5, as Bedford drops out, and Merrimack moves into the #4 spot.

Division 2 - Windham remains #1. Derryfield remains perfect, but drops another spot for the second week in a row, to #3, as Souhegan moves up to #2. Hanover makes their first appearance, at the #4 spot, as Lebanon moves down to #5, and Kennett drops out.

Division 3 - The top 3 remained the same, Newfound, Gilford, & Pelham. However, both Berlin and Winnisquam fall out of the top 5. Mascenic and Monadnock both have their first appearance, as Mascenic moves to #4, and Monadnock to #5.

Defending State Champs

Timberlane lost their first game of the season, to Winnacunnet, a rematch of last year's final, 2-1. Their game against Central was postponed due to an afternoon downpour that made Timberlane's field unplayable; the new date is TBD. This week, Timberlane visits Dover today and Keene on Wednesday. Two games that could be potentially tough for Timberlane, but they should be able to pull out both wins.

Windham steamrolled their competition last week, as they scored 19 goals in two games, letting up only one. This week they play host to Hollis-Brookline, which should be a win for them. Wednesday will be their toughest game of the week, as they travel to Souhegan, who gave them their only loss so far this season, as they fell to them in OT, 1-0, Souhegan is currently perfect at 6-0-0. Then Saturday they host an early morning game, against Lebanon, which is a makeup game that has been rescheduled a couple of times already.

Gilford bounced back after a tough game against Newfound, who gave them their only loss of the season, so far. Gilford, much like Windham, cruised past their competition last week, scoring 21 goals in three games, and letting up two. Today they play host to White Mountains, who gave them a scare the first time they played, then Saturday the travel north, to Littleton's homecoming.

Stat Leaders

D3 Newfound is the first team to reach five shutouts on the season.

No public schools remain unscored upon, as now only the prep schools remain. Kimball Union, St. Paul's and Tilton, have not been scored on, Brewster and Proctor, have yet to start their seasons. Brewster begins Saturday, and Proctor on Wednesday.

D3 Gilford reclaims their top spot from D2 Souhegan, as Gilford has scored a state-leading 37 goals, and Souhegan sits behind them with 35. Windham is the only other team to have hit the 30 mark, as they have scored 31 goals.

Kearsarge's newly discovered gem, Marissa Pickman sits at the top of the state for saves, with 106. She is also the first goalie to break the 100 save mark, although we are pretty sure she would rather be 5-0 with 0 saves, then 1-4, with 106.

Gilford's Nicole Berube takes the top spot in assists with 12. To put her number in perspective, last season Derryfield's Lindsey Stagg led the state in assists with 14, through a total of 17 games, Berube has played seven games so far this season. Hopkinton's Chloe Wood sits in second with eight assists.

Souhegan's Taylor Dudek remains at the top with 14 goals scored. Gilford's Kellie Ryan moves into second, with 13, and Windham's Kate Blaisdell moves to the #3 spot, with 12.

Dudek also remains at the top for points, with 30, as she is the only player to eclipse the 30 point mark this season. Kellie Ryan is, again, in second with 28, and Abby Bevens sits in third with 26.

Prep School Player of the Week

Tia Raspante



Week Summary: 2 games played, 6 goals, & 5 assists. Record: 2-0-0.

Raspante was our #1 ranked forward going into the season, and she certainly earned it last week. In her first game of the season, Raspante scored four goals, and assisted one leading Tilton in their opener, as they won 5-0.

On Saturday Raspante continued her performance, assisting four and scoring twice, as Tilton won 10-0.

Out of Tilton's first 15 goals of the season, Raspante has been involved in 11 of them.

This week Raspante and Tilton face a tougher test as they travel north to Kimball Union, Friday night.

Division 3 Player of the Week

Kellie Ryan



Week Summary: 3 games played, 7 goals, 1 assist, & scored her 50th career goal. Record: 3-0-0.

Last week Ryan helped Gilford to a perfect 3-0-0 week. In her first game, she scored twice, including the gaming winning goal, against White Mountains, as they won 5-2.

In her second game, she scored the eventual game-winner, again, picking up a hat-trick in the process, as they beat Laconia 8-0.

At her homecoming on Saturday Gilford rolled past Franklin, 8-0. Ryan picked up another two goals and an assist, but her first goal was the more important, as it was her 50th career goal.

Ryan, who was our #4 ranked forward coming into the season, currently sits at the #2 spot for goals with 13, and points, with 28.

Today, Ryan and Gilford host White Mountains, who gave them a scare when they first played, then Saturday they travel north, to Littleton's homecoming.

Again, a big congratulations to Kellie Ryan for netting her 50th career goal last week! Congrats, Kellie!

Division 2 Player of the Week

Kate Blaisdell



Week Summary: 2 games played, 8 goals, & 1 assist. Record: 2-0-0.

Blaisdell was our #1 ranked freshman coming into the season, and she has proved why over the past week. Last Monday, Blaisdell picked up a hat trick, as Windham beat Hollis-Brookline, 8-1.

On Thursday, Blaisdell netted another hat-trick, scoring five, as Windham cruised past Oyster River, 11-0.

Going back to the week before, the five goals on Thursday gave Blaisdell her third hat-trick in a row. She currently sits at #3 for goals scored, with 12. The #1 ranked freshman is truly earning her ranking, as she continues to be an incredible threat for Windham.

Today, Blaisdell and Windham play host to Hollis-Brookline. Wednesday they are at Souhegan, who gave them their only loss of the season, so far, which should be an incredible game. Then Saturday, they host Lebanon, which is a makeup game.

Division 1 Player of the Week

Marley Mailloux



Week Summary: 2 games played, 2 goals, & 2 assists. Record: 2-0-0.

Last Monday, Mailloux, and Pinkerton faced off against their D1 powerhouse rival Winnacunnet, both teams were perfect going in, and Winnacunnet was yet to let up a goal. Mailloux and Pinkerton changed that real fast. Pinkerton won the game, with a convincing 3-0 scoreline, as Mailloux picked up two assists.

On Saturday, they traveled to Salem for their homecoming and again won with a convincing 5-0 scoreline, as Mailloux picked two goals, keeping Pinkerton perfect on the season.

Mailloux and Pinkerton travel to Keene today. Then they host two games, Wednesday against Memorial, and Saturday against Londonderry. There would be no surprise if Mailloux and Pinkerton emerged perfect at the week's end.
