Exeter Blue Hawks cement No. 1 Power Poll ranking with win over Pinkerton, 24-20
What little doubt had existed with regard to Exeter High’s ranking among the state’s top high school football teams ended Saturday with the Blue Hawks’ 24-20 victory over then-No. 2 Pinkerton Academy of Derry.
Ranked No. 1 in the preseason and first in-season New Hampshire Union Leader/WGIR/WGAM Power Poll with seven of a possible eight first-place votes, Exeter (2-0) gained unanimity with its triumph over the host Astros (1-1), who switched places in the poll with previously No. 3 Manchester Central (2-0). The Little Green, largely on the strength of Friday night’s victory at then-No. 10 Concord, earned 68 points to the Astros’ 64 in voting by representatives of the three statewide media outlets.
Nashua South (2-0) and Keene (2-0) remain at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively, with Winnacunnet (2-0) now up one spot at No. 6. Bishop Guertin of Nashua (1-1), Nashua North (2-0), Bedford (1-1) and Trinity of Manchester (2-0) round out the top 10.
