The teams at the top of Division III kept up their impressive showings. The rest of the division kept beating up on each other.

No. 1 Staples/Weston/Shelton remains atop the HNIB News¬†Connecticut Division III rankings after an 11-0 win over Trinity Catholic; it’s still perfect against Division III foes, though it’ll get a heck of a test Wednesday at home against a hot Fairfield team.

No. 3 Westhill/Stamford also has a good conference test Saturday against St. Joseph. The co-op lost 4-1 to defending state champion Darien this past week.

No. 2 New Fairfield/Immaculate put in the win of the week, besting Cheshire 2-1. The Rebel Mustangs also beat Newtown 5-0, their fifth shutout in, at the time, six games.

No. 4 Masuk, in the toughest part of its schedule, dropped two games to extend its losing streak to three. The Panthers have another week before they get back to D-III foes, and when they do, they’ll have to deal with New Fairfield/Immaculate twice in three games.

No. 5 Hall/Southington also has a couple of Division II foes coming up the next couple of weeks. Its only loss is to a D-II team, and since then it has run a winning streak to six with wins this week over Lyman Hall/HK/Coginchaug and No. 8 BCR.

No. 6 Woodstock Academy bested western Massachusetts’ Taconic 15-2 to extend its own winning streak to four. No. 7 Newtown, meanwhile, dropped two games, including one to New York’s Horace Greeley. (Greeley also knocked off Barlow this week.)

No. 9 Housatonic/Northwestern/Wamogo sneaks back into the Top 10 with wins against the No. 10 NFA Redhawks co-op and Shepaug/Litchfield. The Mountaineers have Woodstock Academy and Barlow this week to stick around, though, and the Redhawks have a game Monday against BCR after beating Tri-Town 4-3 this week.
