Connecticut D2 Top 10
All eyes will be on the Northford Ice Pavilion on Wednesday, when #1 Watertown-Pomperaug (7-1-2) will take on #3 Branford (5-1-2) in a key Connecticut Division 2 contest.
The Indians downed Rye Country Day (3-1) and Masuk (3-0) last week and have allowed just three goals during their current five-game winning streak. After an opening-night loss, Branford is on a 5-0-2 streak, and knocked Amity from the unbeaten ranks this past Saturday. Branford will also host Conard on Saturday.
In between these two clubs is #2 Guilford (7-2-0), which continues to score goals at a frightening pace. In six of the Indians’s seven wins to date, they have scored seven goals or more. Guilford has the Eastern CT Eagles (Tuesday) and East Haven Co-op (Saturday).
