Concord (9-0) is the only unbeaten team in the division, and will be at home throughout the playoffs. Clearly the team to beat.
Other serious contenders: Nashua South (8-1), Keene (7-2) and Pinkerton Academy of Derry (7-2).
Darkhorse: Manchester Central (7-2).
The Bobcats (8-1) have the pedigree, a head coach who knows how to win big games — Chuck Lenahan has guided Plymouth to 19 state titles — and home-field advantage throughout the postseason.
Other serious contenders: Monadnock (9-0) and Portsmouth (8-1).
Darkhorse: Trinity-Windham winner.
The Pythons (8-0) went unbeaten during the regular season even though they competed in Division III South, which is the SEC of that division. Looks like it's Pelham's year.
Other serious contenders: Bow (7-1) and Stevens (6-2).
