After the second full week of the Connecticut boys hockey season, there still is no disputing which is the top team in Division 2.

Sheehan continues to show that its move up was a wise one, as the Titans added three more wins — Watertown-Pomperaug, Amity and Cheshire — to their unbeaten ledger. No. 1 Sheehan will try to keep its perfect record going this week with games against Guilford and Lyman Hall.

South Windsor also posted three wins last week, two of them against Glastonbury and the other against E.O. Smith/Tolland. That was enough for the Bobcats to climb up the rankings to the No. 2 spot. SW was slated to step up to D1 to face Northwest Catholic on Monday, and also meet E.O. Smith/Tolland again.

Daniel Hand dropped a spot to No. 3, to no fault of the Tigers, who were off the ice last week. Hand is expected to be back in action Sunday at Hamden.

No. 4 North Haven suffered its first loss, to D1 West Haven, but also picked up wins over Cheshire and Branford. Next up this week are matchups with Amity and North Branford.

Lyman Hall bumps up a spot to No. 5 after sweeping past North Branford and East Haven. The Trojans have a huge game Saturday against Sheehan, but can’t look past Wednesday’s game vs. Watertown-Pomperaug.

No. 6 Trumbull knocked off Westhill-Stamford and also fell to D1 unbeaten Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe. Another matchup with Westhill-Stamford this week follows one with D1 St. Joseph.

Farmington Valley lost to D1 Northwest Catholic in its only game last week, but still holds No. 7 thanks to its lone win, which was against new No.8 East Catholic. The teams square off in a home-and-home this week. East Catholic cracks the rankings thanks to a pair of wins against D1 Simsbury.
