Top 2 in high school football power poll to meet Friday night

After the top three all won this past weekend, with No. 1 Concord topping No. 4 Pinkerton Academy of Derry in overtime, it's status quo for Nos. 1-8 in the Union Leader/WGIR/WMUR Power Poll of the state's top high school football teams.

Coming up this week: a match-up of the top two teams, with Bedford visiting Concord at Memorial Field Friday night.

The only changes in the poll are at the bottom of the top 10, where Trinity of Manchester (5-1) moved up a spot to No. 9 after its 21-13 victory over Souhegan of Amherst and Portsmouth (also 5-1) claimed No. 10 after handling previously unbeaten St. Thomas Aquinas of Dover, 49-28, while previously No. 9 Spaulding of Rochester lost to No. 5 Bishop Guertin of Nashua, 38-26.

Concord, Bedford and Nashua South retain the top three spots, all with 5-0 records.

Pinkerton (3-2) retained the No. 4 ranking, with one point more than Bishop Guertin (4-1), which faces South this weekend.

Plymouth (6-0), Exeter (4-2) and Keene (4-2) all retained their ranks, Nos. 6-8, respectively.
