Here we go again. Division Two, always volatile, always fun, got started with a big win for a team recently moved down, a draw between two top teams and — already — teams with potential, possibly, beating up on each other.

Starting at the top of the HNIB News Connecticut Division Two rankings, No. 1 Cheshire opened with a 2-2 tie against No. 3 Conard. Conard, which got a win over No. 6 Hand last week, will get a chance to measure up against some of the other upstate big boys this week: It faces Division One Glastonbury and Simsbury. Cheshire will visit No. 8 East Haven on Saturday; East Haven started off with a couple of easy wins before a tie against Division Three Westhill/Stamford.

No. 2 North Haven bested conference rival Amity 6-1. It visits New Milford on Monday.

No. 4 South Windsor, after a narrow loss to Division I Simsbury, came back with a 5-0 win over No. 5 North Branford to throw its name in with the potential powers in its first year back in Division Two in a while. Senior goalie Scott Skenyon earned the shutout.

No. 7 Guilford, after a win over BCR, split at the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund tournament in Concord, Mass., falling to Scituate 7-5 in the final.

No. 9 Trumbull beat No. 10 Branford to open the season, 3-1. Branford recovered with a 2-1 win over Fairfield.

It’s a busy week for those teams with some games that could help sort out a longer-term order for this division. Trumbull faces Milford and East Haven; on Wednesday, Branford visits Hand, while Fairfield hosts North Branford.
