Newtown kept rolling, remaining unbeaten in eight games after conference wins over Barlow and Brookfield/Bethel/Danbury this week. Their rival Masuk had the more-impressive win, though, stopping New Milford’s seven-game winning streak with a 6-3 win behind Charlie Christo’s four goals.

 

While E.O. Smith/Tolland/Windham remained unbeaten in regulation with a big win over Woodstock Academy, Westhill had continued to lose but respectably, falling by a goal to Division I Ridgefield. But then the Vikings took an 8-2 loss to Division II Wilton, their eighth loss in a row after a two-game winning streak.

 

Division II took its toll on Division III this week. Hall/Southington took a 6-2 loss to Newington/Berlin/Manchester; Staples/Weston/Shelton was disappointed in a 5-3 loss to Trumbull. Tri-Town tied Fermi/Enfield (which last week also beat Division I Simsbury) and lost to North Branford.

 

Sheehan won a couple of games, needing overtime to beat Woodstock Academy on Jim McNamee’s power-play goal.

 

And in perhaps the DIII game of the week, Housatonic/Northwestern/Wamogo and New Fairfield/Immaculate played a 1-1 draw. Eric Chin made 26 saves for Housatonic/Northwestern/Wamogo, and Ryan Dobos stopped 29 for New Fairfield/Immaculate.
