New Hampshire Football Report

Bedford still has the most power


The top 10 high school football teams in New Hampshire, voted by the staffs of the New Hampshire Union Leader and ESPN New Hampshire, with record, first-place votes/points in parentheses, plus last week’s ranking:

1. Bedford, 6-0 (7/70), 1st

Bulldogs had their hands full with Central on Friday night, but remained the only unbeaten team in Division I.

2. Merrimack, 5-1 (63), 2nd

The Tomahawks may not be getting enough credit for their defense.

3. T-Goffstown, 5-1 (47), 4th

The Grizzlies are capable of beating any team in the state.

3. T-Windham, 6-0 (47), 3rd

Would Windham be 5-1 or better if it played Goffstown’s schedule?

5. T-Exeter, 5-1 (40), 6th

Exeter played Blue Hawk football during its 42-6 victory over Nashua North on Friday night. As the weather gets worse, the Exeter offense gets better.

5. T-Salem, 5-1 (40), 5th

The Blue Devils still have Goffstown and Bedford left on their schedule.

7. Bishop Guertin, 5-1 (26), T-10th

The Cardinals needed everything to go their way to beat a Portsmouth team that was without starting quarterback Cody Graham.

8. John Stark, 6-0 (20), 9th

John Stark/Plymouth matchup may be the best game on this weekend’s schedule.

9. Plymouth, 6-0 (14), T-10th

The Plymouth/John Stark winner will have a chance to beat out Windham for the No. 1 seed in Division II.

10. Portsmouth, 4-2 (10th), 7th

The Clippers let one slip away in Nashua on Saturday.

Also receiving votes: Pinkerton, 3-3 (3), NR; Monadnock, 5-0 (2), NR; Dover, 4-2 (2), NR; Hanover, 6-0 (1), NR
