Connecticut Boys Division 2 Top 10
|Rank||Team||[tooltip text="PR*" gravity="ne"]Previous Ranking[/tooltip]||W||L||T|
The shakeup continues at the top of the HNIB News Connecticut Division 2 boys hockey rankings.
The big result of the last week was Wethersfield-Middletown-Rocky Hill-Plainville knocking off previously top-ranked Branford, 3-2, in overtime Saturday. That created a shuffling of the top four on the list going into this week.
Daniel Hand was the big beneficiary after the Tigers won their lone game of the week against Guilford and jumped up to No. 1. WMRP’s big win pushes the Eagles up to No. 2 ahead of Branford, which settles in at No. 3.
Farmington Valley had a tie vs. Simsbury and a win against Guilford, but in the new jockeying for position the Generals drop a spot to No. 4.
The rest of the rankings were relatively stable. Despite a loss to Div. 1 New Canaan, Westhill-Stamford stays at No. 5 after also beating New Milford. No. 6 North Haven (vs. Milford) and No. 7 Woodstock Academy (vs. East Haven) won in their only action last week.
Trumbull stayed at No. 8 despite a tie with Div. 3 Staples, while also beating Wilton. No. 9 Lyman Hall/H-K/Coginchaug had a tough week, but the losses came against Branford and Div. 3 power Sheehan, so the Trojans keep their spot for another week.
The new entry to the rankings is Glastonbury at No. 10, despite a loss to Div. 1 West Haven.
There are only two matchups of ranked Division 2 teams this week, both Wednesday. Branford visits North Haven (8:15 p.m., Northford Ice Pavilion), while Westhill-Stamford is at Trumbull (7:50, Terry Conners Rink).
