Connecticut Boys Division 2 Top 10
The big news in Connecticut Division 2 boys hockey last week wasn’t right at the top, where No. 1 Branford continues to roll.
Instead, it was the next rung down as Farmington Valley had its 11-game winning streak snapped Saturday by Glastonbury. With that, Daniel Hand jumps up to the No. 2 spot following wins against Watertown-Pomperaug and Lyman Hall/H-K/Coginchaug, with Farmington Valley settling in at No. 3.
No. 4 Wethersfield-Middletown-Rocky Hill-Plainville met another bump in the road with Saturday’s loss to Div. 3 power Newington. Westhill-Stamford, which swept Wilton and Staples, remains No. 5.
Branford’s top ranking gets put to the test this week with LHKC (Wednesday) and WMRP (Saturday) on the docket. While there are plenty of other key games, those are the only matchups between ranked Div. 2 teams this week.
Westhill-Stamford has a tough Monday battle with New Canaan, a top five Div. 1 squad. On Wednesday, Farmington Valley takes on Simsbury, and Lyman Hall also meets Div. 3 leader Sheehan.
