It wasn’t a perfect week, but the top three teams in the HNIB News Connecticut Division 2 boys hockey rankings stayed unbeaten. Just in a slightly different order.

Top-ranked WMRP had no trouble keeping the No. 1 spot after knocking off the its counterpart from the Division 3 rankings, Hall-Southington. The Eagles will try to make it 10 in a row this week when they take on Watertown-Pomperaug and Northeastern.

Daniel Hand bumps up a spot to No. 2 after improving to 7-0-0 by sweeping past SGWL and North Branford in convincing fashion. The Tigers get a tough test with a solid Division 3 squad in Sheehan, then step out the Nutmeg State to face Scarsdale, N.Y.

Westhill-Stamford stayed unbeaten, but took a minor nick to its overall record by tying Immaculate in addition to a win against Amity. That drops the Black Knights to No. 3, and they face a stiff challenge this week from Div. 1 Ridgefield as well as Norwalk-McMahon.

No. 4 Branford continues to shine, shutting out both Cheshire and Amity last week. Next up for the Hornets are North Haven and Watertown-Pomperaug.

Farmington Valley continues to be a big mover in the rankings, jumping to No. 5 this week off a sweep of Watertown-Pomperaug and Glastonbury. The Generals have a single game this week vs. South Windsor.

North Haven also is on the rise, up three spots to No. 6 after beating East Haven and Trumbull. The Indians face both Branford and North Branford this week.

The loss to North Haven drops Trumbull to No. 7, and the Eagles will try to regroup vs. St. Joseph.

Cheshire fell to Branford but topped East Catholic to stay at No. 8. The Rams have North Branford and West Haven in the coming days.

Woodstock Academy joins the rankings at No. 9, as the Centaurs have won their last three, including Lyman Hall/HK/Coginchaug and SGWL last week. The Centaurs will try to keep rolling against East Haven and Eastern Connecticut, the latter of which rounds out the rankings this week at No. 10. The Eagles dropped their lone game last week to SGWL, and also play Tri-Town this week in addition to Woodstock.
