Sheehan had a battle on its hands Saturday against Lyman Hall/Haddam-Killingworth/Coginchaug in a rematch of last year’s Division 3 final, but by pulling out a 5-5 tie the Titans remain the only unbeaten Div. 3 team in Connecticut and remain in the #1 spot in this week’s HNIB News rankings.

Newington secured a win against Milford to stay in the #2 spot, but things got thrown out of whack throughout the rest of the rankings.

After losing the first head-to-head meeting earlier this season, Hall-Southington bounced back to beat Tri-Town and earned a big five-spot jump to #3.

Enfield-East Granby-Stafford suffered its first loss of the season, but it was against a strong Div. 2 squad (WMRP) so the Eagles hold at No. 4.

Likewise for #5 New Milford, which lost to North Haven, but responded with a win against Newtown.

Tri-Town checks in at #6 thanks to its victory against #7 Housatonic-Northwest-Wamogo-Torrington.

Wilton returns to the rankings at #8 thanks to its win against Joel Barlow/Weston/Abbott Tech, which suffered a big drop to #9.

#10 Norwalk-McMahon was routed by Div. 1 Ridgefield, but bounced back to beat Masuk to close the week.
