Much like in the Division 2 rankings, a loss at the top brings a shakeup to the order of this week’s HNIB News Connecticut Division 3 top 10.

Hall-Southington leapfrogs two spots to #1 this week thanks to solid victories against Enfield/E. Granby/Stafford and Northeastern. Next up is a showdown with Div. 2 WMRP in a matchup of top-ranked teams.

Newington won its lone game against Housatonic-NW-Wamogo-Torrington, but remains in the #2 position heading into matchups with Enfield co-op and E.O. Smith/Tolland.

Sheehan finally tumbled from the top of the rankings to #3 after suffering a loss to Cheshire in its lone meeting last week. The Titans will try to get back on track this week vs. Trinity Catholic and Masuk.

#4 New Milford and #5 Enfield/E. Granby/Stafford flip spots from a week ago. New Milford added wins against Masuk and Trinity Catholic to its resume, while the Enfield co-op added a tie with #6 Tri-Town to its loss to Hall-Southington. NM faces Newtown and Norwalk-McMahon, while Enfield takes on Newington, Northeastern and Housatonic.

Norwalk-McMahon took advantage of a shaky week for many Div. 3 teams, riding its lone win over Shepaug-Litchfield-Thomaston-Nonnewaug to climb three spots to #7. N-M also plays Milford in addition to New Milford.

#8 Suffield/Granby/Windsor Locks, which crunched JBWA, moves into the rankings along with #9 Milford, which edged Newtown in its only game of the week. SGWL has a busy week with Daniel Hand, Woodstock Academy and Eastern Conn. all on the docket. Milford follows up Norwalk-McMahon with Trinity Catholic on Saturday.

Despite its 1-3 mark, #10 Housatonic stays in the rankings for another week and faces a pair of fellow co-ops in Shepaug and Enfield.
