Connecticut Boys Division 2 Top 8
It was an interesting vacation week in Division 2 boys’ hockey in Connecticut – some teams were busy, others didn’t play it all. Add it all up, and there was a little shuffling and just one new entry in this week’s Hockey Night in Boston News rankings.
No. 1 Sheehan was one of the busier teams, with victories over Wethersfield and Cheshire. That was more than enough to keep the Titans in the top spot, with games upcoming against North Branford and Lyman Hall.
On the other hand, No. 2 East Haven hasn’t played since Dec. 20, but the Yellowjackets hope to put their unbeaten mark on the line again this week vs. Milford and Glastonbury.
No. 3 Lyman Hall won its only game last week, beating Guilford, and downed Branford on Monday. For the Trojans, the busy work continues this week with, East Catholic and the big D2 showdown with Sheehan.
No. 4 Farmington Valley asserted itself with a win over a ranked North Haven team, as well as East Catholic.
No. 5 Westhill-Stamford hasn’t played since Dec. 18, and has only one game under its belt. W-S is slated to finally play McMahon-Norwalk and North Haven this week.
Trumbull moves up to No. 6 after winning the Heuchling & Swift Memorial Classic in New Hampshire, going 2-0-1 overall.
North Haven drops to No. 7 with the loss to Farmington as well as a win over Amity. The Nighthawks came make a statement this week with their game against West-Stam. The newcomer to the list this week is No. 8 Wethersfield, which was close to cracking the rankings a week ago and does so now despite a close loss to Sheehan. The Eagles also beat Conard last week.
