Staples/Weston/Shelton has played only one Division III team in its first five games. It’s 3-2, and that’s part of why it remains atop the HNIB News¬†Connecticut Division III rankings — not that other teams haven’t continued impressive starts.

The Wreckers got their second win over Division II Amity this week, beating the Spartans 7-0 (the first was a 5-2 win) after losses to Division II Hand and Division I New Canaan.

No. 2 New Fairfield/Immaculate remained unbeaten and unblemished, earning its third shutout in a row with a 4-0 win over Amity. No. 3 Westhill/Stamford is also unbeaten, beating Sheehan and Masuk handily this week. (It doesn’t get easier for No. 4 Masuk, last year’s runner-up, which plays its next seven against non-Division III opponents, six in Division II and one out of state.)

No. 5 Hall/Southington needed overtime to beat Wethersfield/Rocky Hill/Middletown but followed up with a shutout over Fermi/Enfield, running its winning streak to three games. It’s the same streak at No. 6 Woodstock Academy, which fell to Hall/Southington to open the season but now has wins over Tri-Town, the Redhawks co-op and E.O. Smith/Tolland since. No. 7 Newtown won a couple of games this week after a loss to Hall/Southington last week.

There are lots of teams in the mix in Division III, but for this week’s No. 8, let’s go with Rockville/Bolton/Coventry/RHAM, which opened its season with a couple of close losses to Division II teams, then beat the NFA/St. Bernard/Bacon Academy et. Al. Redhawks 8-5 for their first win.

The No. 9 Redhawks have played a few shootouts, including a 9-4 loss to Woodstock Academy this week and last week’s 8-3 win over No. 10 Housatonic/Northwestern/Wamogo. Housy rebounded this week with a 4-2 win over the Eastern Connecticut Eagles. It’ll face unbeaten Lyman Hall/HK/Coginchaug on Wednesday.
