Connecticut Boys Division 3 Top 10
Last week promised to be a big one in the HNIB News Connecticut Division 3 rankings, and the action on the ice certainly delivered.
Newington was the big winner, knocking off ranked Hall-Southington as well as Northeastern to move up to the No. 1 spot in the rankings. But all was not lost for Hall-Southington, as the Warrior Knights made a big statement of their own by taking down previous No. 1 Sheehan. That sends H-S to No. 2 this week, with Sheehan dropping to No. 3.
The shakeup continued in the lower rankings, where it was more about “quality losses” than anything. No. 4 Norwalk-McMahon and No. 7 Wilton both fell to New Canaan, No. 5 New Milford dropped to a Milford team that enters the Div. 3 rankings this week, and No. 6 Enfield-East Granby-Stafford also lost to Hall-Southington.
No. 8 Newtown continued its surge by beating Staples, and Milford jumps in at No. 9. Suffield-Granby-Windsor Locks had a rough week with three straight losses and barely holds on at No. 10.
This week could deliver some more fireworks and possible movement, with the top two teams – Newington and Hall-Southington – squaring off Wednesday night. SGWL will try to snap its slide against a pair of teams, Housatonic-Northwest-Wamogo-Torrington and Tri-Town, trying to make their respective pushes for the postseason.
