Things finally have stabilized a bit in the HNIB News Connecticut Division 3 boys hockey rankings, which remain unchanged almost from top to bottom from last week. It was a quiet week with many teams getting in only one game, if any at all.

Hall-Southington continues to hold the No. 1 spot after beating Housatonic-Northwest-Wamogo-Torrington. It will be another one-game week for the Warrior Knights, who face East Haven.

No. 2 Newington scored one of the bigger wins of the week by skating past New Milford. Glastonbury and Northeastern are on the docket this week for the Indians.

Sheehan sent shockwaves across Connecticut last week by outgunning previously unbeaten Div. 2 power Daniel Hand. But the Titans still sit tight at No. 3 with games against No. 4 New Milford and Newtown this week.

As for New Milford, the Green Wave hold their position despite the loss to Newington. After Monday’s early game vs. Sheehan, they were slated to face Housatonic later in the week.

No. 5 Norwalk-McMahon took down Staples in its lone game, and skate twice this week against Watertown-Pomperaug and Wilton.

At No. 6, Enfield-East Granby-Stafford is the lone team in the rankings to place twice, sweeping South Hadley (Mass.) and Milford. The Eagles had a busy week upcoming with Bethel-Brookfield-Danbury on Monday, then E.O. Smith/Tolland and No. 7 Suffield-Granby-Windsor Locks.

SGWL was off last week, as was No. 8 Trinity Catholic. SGWL also plays East Catholic on Monday, while the flu-ravaged Crusaders took on Northeastern on Monday and also are slated to play Staples, Shepaug and Westhill-Stamford.

Wilton stays at No. 9 despite a loss to a strong Div. 2 Farmington Valley squad. The Warriors take on St. Joseph before the matchup with Norwalk-McMahon.

Milford is the lone new team in the rankings at No. 15. The Indians sit at only 3-5, but all five losses are to ranked teams. Milford faces Lyman Hall/H-K/Coginchaug and East Haven.
