Daniel Hand continues to roll, pushing its unbeaten streak to 10 games and remaining at No. 1 in the HNIB News Connecticut Div. 2 rankings for the second week. The Tigers swept to wins against Hall-Southington, East Haven and Immaculate last week.

Branford, the No. 1 team for much of the season, is back up to No. 2 after beating Guilford and North Haven. No. 3 Farmington Valley continued its impressive season with three more wins, and No. 4 Westhill-Stamford’s week included a win against Div. 1 Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe.

WMRP, coming off its overtime stunner against Branford the week before, hit a bump with a loss to Eastern Connecticut and falls to No. 5.

No. 6 North Haven, No. 7 Woodstock Academy and No. 8 Trumbull all held their ground. East Haven picked up a win against Lyman Hall/H-K/Coginchaug and re-enters the rankings at No. 9, with LHKC falling to No. 10.

Daniel Hand closes out its regular season schedule Wednesday with a ranked game vs. North Haven, while Branford is at East Haven the same night. Trumbull steps out of D2 to face Darien, the state’s top-ranked Div. 1 team, also Wednesday night.
