Ian Clark's Corner Kicks: No rest for No. 1 Exeter girls
Exeter, the No. 1 ranked team in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America national poll, defeated previously unbeaten Bedford (7-1-1) by a 3-0 score on Tuesday and will play at Pinkerton Academy of Derry (8-0-0) today at 4 p.m.
While Exeter has won by a comfortable span through most of its games (two goals is the lowest margin of victory), Pinkerton has powered along with efficient defense and timely scoring in close contests.
It all adds up to what should be an excellent matchup today in Derry between two teams that appear destined to meet again in the playoffs.
Honorable mentions: Manchester Central (6-2-0), Bow (9-1-0), Woodsville (8-0-1). Let's hear it: There was a lot of feedback about the top five rankings this week and the numbers have been adjusted to include more factors. Coaches are encouraged to check in via email with thoughts and input to help the top five reflect the best of the best. Big win for Manchester Memorial: The Memorial girls' team earned a 2-1 victory over Keene last week for the first win of the season. The Crusaders (1-7-2) also have two ties this season after going winless in 2012.
