The final unbeatens were beaten in Division III this week. Tri-Town went down to Hall/Southington, 2-1. Sheehan took down Housatonic, 3-1.

 

It’s not as if anyone was expecting to sweep through this division anyway. Will it come down to a team that battled through a tough schedule, like Westhill (following a win over Newtown with losses to New Milford and Suffield, both Division II opponents)?

 

What about Newtown and Masuk, who themselves came up with wins over Division II opponents (Watertown/Pomperaug and Wilton, respectively)?

 

Or what about E.O. Smith/Tolland/Windham, which may have the most-impressive results after shaking off an opening-night overtime loss to Suffield?

 

There’s a long way to go.

 

Hall/Southington’s big win followed three losses in four games, though there weren’t lots of easy spots in there. New Fairfield/Immaculate posted some easy wins in the first quarter, and its loss was no slouch, a 5-1 defeat by Amity.

 

Stamford’s schedule wasn’t getting easier, but it beat Division II Guilford 4-2. Sheehan, meanwhile, after opening the year with a loss to the newly renamed Eastern Connecticut Eagles (the old Fitch co-op), rebounded with a winning streak.

 

If there’s a sleeper in the D-III weeds, it may be winless Wethersfield. Despite a couple of decisive losses, it also has close losses against E.O. Smith/Tolland/Windham and East Catholic.
