Guilford (12-4-0) opened the week with a shutout loss to #3 Branford but rebounded with an 8-6 triumph over Daniel Hand, rallying from a three-goal deficit. That rally will keep the Indians in the top spot this week, but things are a lot closer amongst the top three teams. Guilford gets Cheshire and Farmington Valley this upcoming week.

#2 Watertown-Pomperaug (12-3-2) began the week losing to Daniel Hand (2-1) but roared back to collect victories over Farmington Valley (5-2) and Lyman Hall/H-K/Coginchaug (2-1). The Indians look ahead to weekend tilts with New Fairfield/Immaculate (Friday) and McMahon-Norwalk (Saturday).

#3 Branford skated to that win over Guilford (5-0), and also downed New Milford (3-1). The Hornets are now 10-3-3 overall and will be a tough out come the post-season.

#4 South Windsor (9-7-0) played just one game last week which was a loss to E.O. Smith (5-3). SW takes on #8 Cheshire (9-4-1) tonight.

#5 Farmington Valley (8-5-2) opened the week with a loss to Watertown-Pomperaug (5-2). However, later in the week, the Indians stormed back to shutout East Catholic (3-0).
