Lyman Hall’s run at the top of the Hockey Night in Boston Connecticut Division 2 boys hockey rankings lasted a week.

Actually, in reality, it was less than 24 hours for the Trojans. After vaulting to No. 1 last Monday based off a victory over previously unbeaten Sheehan a couple of days earlier, the teams took the ice for a rematch late Monday night.

Advantage: Sheehan. With their 4-2 victory, the Titans got their revenge and with that, reclaimed their top spot this week. Sheehan also beat Guilford to end the week, while Lyman Hall got back on track with a win over Cheshire as the Trojans settle back in at No. 2.

There won’t be a third matchup this week — Sheehan takes on Westhill/Stamford and New Milford, while Lyman Hall gets North Branford, Daniel Hand and Guilford.

The Daniel Hand matchup could be a big one, as the No. 3 Tigers have been sitting on the sideline for a bit, but will finally resume play against Lyman Hall on Thursday. Hand also had a matchup with No. 4 North Haven that has been canceled, as NH remains off the ice for now.

Trumbull’s only game last week was a win over a solid Division 3 Staples squad, but it was enough to move the Eagles up to No. 5. Trumbull takes on Norwalk-McMahon before a home-and-home with Immaculate.

East Catholic easily could rank a bit higher than No. 6, but the Eagles continued their steady climb after sweeping past South Windsor. EC has to be wary of a matchup this week with unbeaten Wethersfield, which sits a spot back at No. 7 after being off last week. East Catholic also matches up with Glastonbury.

South Windsor stays on the edge of the rankings, falling to No. 8 off its double-dip last week. The Bobcats will try to get back on track this week against Simsbury in its lone game.
