Connecticut Boys Division 3 Top 10
Sheehan continues to leave little doubt which is the best team in Connecticut Division 3 boys hockey, as the Titans swept Bethel-Brookfield-Danbury and Housatonic-Northwest-Wamogo-Torrington to retain the top spot this week.
The No. 2 slot in this week’s HNIB News Connecticut Division 3 Top 10is pretty obvious as well. Both Newington and Hall-Southington got a crack last week at Div. 2 ranked WMRP. Only Newington came out of it with a win, and the Indians also took down Enfield-East Granby-Stafford to flip up into the No. 2 spot, with Hall-Southington at No. 3.
The next few spots weren’t as easy. But No. 4 Suffield-Granby-Windsor Locks and No. 5 New Milford went unbeaten last week. Norwalk-McMahon drops to No. 6, but hardly can be faulted for losses to tough higher-division teams in Trumbull and Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe.
Sheehan faces an interesting matchup Saturday with Lyman Hall/H-K/Coginchaug, last year’s Div. 3 champ. Newington also hosts Tri-Town on Saturday in the other matchup of top-10 teams.
It doesn’t get any easier for Norwalk-McMahon, which faces two more Div. 1 powers in Greenwich (Wednesday) and Darien (Saturday). Both Staples (Wednesday) and Wilton (Saturday) have to square off with Div. 2 Trumbull. In other key games Saturday, Hall-Southington hosts Daniel Hand, while New Milford takes on Westhill-Stamford.
