OK things are a lot clearer after tonight's games...

Mass-Dartmouth and Salem have clinched first round byes. UMD finishes first by winning on Saturday or a loss by Salem. Salem needs to win and have UMD lose or tie in order to take first place.
Plymouth and Fitchburg will host on Tuesday night. Who is the 3rd seed and who is the 4th seed? Plymouth needs one point to secure 3rd. A loss and a Fitchburg win will put the Falcons in 3rd and the Panthers in 4th.
Worcester is in 5th
Westfield is in 6th
Framingham is in 7th and out of the playoffs.

My guess at the final standings

UMD 27
Salem 26
PSU 23
Fitch 19
worc 13
west 9
framing 9


I think the 5 and 6 seeds could possibly stage some upsets in the playoffs but I ultimately think the championship will be UMD and Salem
