When we muttered something about inertia last week, we meant the object at rest staying at rest. Trust us: This week when we talk about No. 3 Hall/Southington’s inertia, it’s the “object in motion” sense.

That tough schedule must’ve helped prepare the Warrior Knights to take down previously unbeaten No. 1 Woodstock Academy, a 3-2 win. They also beat the No. 9 NFA Redhawks co-op and tied Enfield this week. Not surprisingly, their schedule isn’t easy in the week to come, with D2 foes Farmington Valley and Watertown/Pomperaug scheduled; they lost 3-1 to Farmington early in the season.

Woodstock Academy came back with a handy win over the Redhawks, and No. 2 WMRP had wins against Enfield and Shepaug co-ops around a loss to Farmington Valley.

No. 5 Lyman Hall/HK/Coginchaug beat No. 8 Tri-Town 5-3. No. 6 Masuk avenged an earlier loss to No. 7 Newtown, beating the Nighthawks 3-2 on Adam Montague’s late goal.

No. 4 Housatonic/Northwestern, idled for two weeks by weather, gets back at it with a visit to Masuk on Wednesday and a visit from the Redhawks on Friday.

No. 10 Norwalk has lost three games in a row to higher-division opponents and has a couple of more coming up. It’s tough to dock the Bears for their schedule, but maybe it’s worth at least acknowledging Trinity Catholic, which started Norwalk’s losing streak with an overtime win, came back this week with wins over Staples/Weston/Shelton, Milford and Wilton. The Crusaders have another busy week to come, weather permitting, with Guilford, Trumbull, Wilton and Darien.
