Connecticut Boys Division 1 Top 10
|2||Notre Dame West Haven||3||1||0||0|
|7||Notre Dame Fairfield||9||2||0||0|
In an opening week of Connecticut Division 1 boys hockey that featured some movement throughout the rankings, one thing remained constant – Fairfield Prep at the top.
The two-time defending state champion Jesuits didn’t exactly have an easy go of it, but a tight 2-1 win against Ridgefield followed by Saturday’s 5-3 victory against Immaculate was enough to keep FP in the #1 spot.
Notre Dame-West Haven took advantage of the shakeup, riding its lone win against Immaculate to jump a spot to #2.
#3 Xavier had a strong opening week with wins against Greenwich and Ridgefield, but Hamden was even more impressive in jumping to #4. The Green Dragons scored big wins against New Canaan and Darien for a 2-0 start.
Darien did get a 7-0 win against Wilton, but dropped three spots to #5.
#6 West Haven, #7 Notre Dame-Fairfield and #9 Northwest Catholic are unbeaten to open the season. Ridgefield did drop both its games, but with arguably the toughest schedule to start of any team in the state (Fairfield Prep, Xavier), stays in the rankings at #8.
New Canaan is the lone new entry this week, at 2-1 after beating Greenwich and Prout (R.I.) while falling to Hamden.
