If you liked last week’s New Hampshire Union Leader High School Football Power Poll, you’ll love this week’s. The top seven spots remained unchanged from a week ago, with Winnacunnet of Hampton and Salem staying tied for No. 1 after weekend blowout victories.

Division II Plymouth stayed in the No. 3 spot, followed by Goffstown, Pinkerton of Derry, Windham and Exeter. The Grizzlies posted the weekend’s most impressive victory, topping defending Division I state Bedford, 21-7.

Londonderry, which is 5-1, its lone loss at Pinkerton, jumped from unranked to No. 8 in this week’s poll. The Lancers can earn a playoff spot with a win over Alvirne of Hudson on Friday night at home.

Other key games this weekend include No. 10 Manchester Central at home to Goffstown on Friday.
