As with the other two divisions in Connecticut boys hockey, there is a new team at the top this week in the HNIB News Connecticut Division 3 rankings. Which is a bit unusual, since last week’s No. 1 Hall-Southington won its lone game vs. East Haven, but new No. 1 Sheehan has been on a roll and last week took down New Milford and Newtown.

Hall-Southington checks in at No. 2, and New Milford is up to No. 3 despite the loss to Sheehan, since the Green Wave did beat Housatonic. No. 4 Norwalk-McMahon also climbs a spot thanks to wins against Watertown-Pomperaug and Wilton. Newington drops three spots to No. 5 off a split last week (loss to Glastonbury, win vs. Northeastern).

Suffield-Granby-Windsor Locks beat Enfield-East Granby-Stafford, so it was an easy call to flip-flop them in the Nos. 6 and 7 spots.

Despite the loss to NorMac, Wilton is up a spot to No. 8. Staples beat Trinity Catholic, so the Wreckers check in at No. 9, followed by TC at 10.

This week’s top-10 action features a pair of games Wednesday – Enfield at Sheehan (7:00, Choate), and SGWL at New Milford (7:15, Canterbury) – as well as a Saturday matchup between Norwalk-McMahon and Trinity Catholic (5:10, Terry Conners). Enfield also faces a tough test Saturday at WMRP (7:10, Newington).
