The NH Register released its state polls for Week 7 and there’s little or no change. Voters have staked their claims, and now they’re sticking with it.
But, hey, what’s this?
Newtown makes its Top 10 debut. I do believe that’s called ‘Trending up’ for you once-disgruntled Newtown fans out there.
Congratulations, the state writers love you more than poor Glastonbury, which, despite it’s obvious talents, lost its first game of the year: a wild, 28-21 decision to Southington that just swung Southington’s way late.
Glastonbury drops three spots to No. 12.
In The Day of New London’s Top 10, the only significant change was Masuk leap-frogging Xavier from 6 to 5. Staples also picked up a first-place vote. Greenwich jumped from 9 to 7.
