A few teams in the HNIB News Connecticut Division II rankings came up with some big wins this week, keeping up the division’s competitive reputation. No. 4 Suffield/Granby/Windsor Locks got the biggest of those, besting No. 1 Branford, 4-1. No. 3 Conard took down Division I Simsbury by the same score.

East Haven, a team that had drawn some interest from coaches in the preseason, suffered through injuries most of the season but put together a 3-1 win over No. 5 North Branford this week.

No. 2 Fairfield, No. 6 North Haven and No. 9 Milford all split games this week, each one losing to a Division I team.

With Hand on a losing streak, we’ll give a nod to No. 10 Newington/Berlin/Manchester, whose schedule hasn’t given them much of a shot at a signature win, but who keeps winning. There’s a chance Tuesday for one of those, though, facing Conard.

No. 7 Cheshire and No. 8 New Milford both had their weeks disrupted, whether by weather or by lack of officials. Cheshire has Suffield on the schedule this week, though the weather forecast isn’t promising.
