Connecticut Division 2 Poll
The top three teams in Hockey Night in Boston’s Connecticut Division II rankings don’t have a loss yet against Division II opposition. Heck, Branford is the last remaining team in the state without a loss. They don’t play each other soon enough.
No. 1 Cheshire rolled on to four wins in a row with victories over No. 9 Hand and East Haven, while No. 2 Branford decisively beat both Milford and Amity. No. 3 North Haven dropped a 3-0 game to Northwest Catholic before coming back with a win over East Haven.
Cheshire does have interesting games this week against No. 8 New Milford, which beat both Trumbull and Masuk this week, and No. 6 North Branford, which handily beat Amity and New Fairfield/Immaculate.
No. 7 Conard emerged from a string of games against Division I teams with a win in the last, knocking off Xavier in overtime, 4-3. No. 4 Fairfield and No. 10 Trumbull also ran into big programs this week, Fairfield to New Canaan, Trumbull to Darien and Greenwich (losing both games by just a goal). Trumbull’s run with the big boys continues, against New Canaan and Ridgefield, in the week to come.
No. 5 Suffield/Granby/Windsor Locks has a game against North Branford this week, putting a three-game winning streak on the line. The co-op beat South Windsor 4-1 on Saturday.
