A big win by No. 1 Staples/Weston/Shelton keeps the Wreckers atop the HNIB News Connecticut Division III rankings. The Wreckers beat conference rival and No. 3 Westhill/Stamford 3-2 Saturday. No. 2 New Fairfield/Immaculate kept pace, beating its conference rival, Masuk, as well as Division II New Milford. The Rebel Mustangs rematch with No. 5 Masuk is on Wednesday.
No. 4 Woodstock Academy’s ninth straight win was a big one, a 7-3 win over No. 6 Hall/Southington that responded to a season-opening loss to the Warrior Knights. The Centaurs’ streak ended with a tough 5-3 loss to D1 Suffield/Granby/Windsor Locks, but Hall/Southington rebounded with a 5-4 win over D2 E.O. Smith/Tolland.
No. 7 BCR earned a couple of big wins of its own, besting WMR (which knocked off Newtown 6-1 this week) and, in overtime, D2 Farmington Valley. It’ll get a chance at Hall/Southington on Saturday. No. 8 Housatonic/Northwestern/Wamogo has won four of five after besting Barlow and, in overtime, the Eastern CT Eagles. A Barlow rematch looms Wednesday.
The No. 9 NFA Redhawks co-op ran its winning streak to three after wins over Sheehan and D2 Milford. No. 10 Lyman Hall/HK/Coginchaug did the same, including wins against those two opponents as well; it’s actually unbeaten in five now after an 0-3-1 lull.
