Connecticut Boys Division 3 Top 8
There’s a new No. 1 team in Connecticut Division 3 boys hockey in the Hockey Night in Boston rankings, and it only makes sense that it is the last remaining unbeaten team in the bunch.
E.O. Smith/Tolland continued its strong start to the season with wins over Northeastern and Eastern Connecticut. It will get tougher for the Bucks this week with Hall and Newington on tap.
No. 2 BBD still hasn’t lost to a Connecticut team – and, in fact, still has played just one game in-state after splitting a pair in Maine. The Icecats finally get back to local play with a pair against Housatonic.
Newington rolled over Southington to hold the No. 3 spot as the Noreasters prepare to face Conard and E.O. Smith/Tolland.
No. 4 Tri-Town looked strong with wins over Hall and Northeastern. The TerrorCats cross the border to face West Springfield, and also have a local matchup with Enfield.
McMahon-Norwalk moves up to No. 5 after beating Newtown/New Fairfield. NorMac will have a pair of tough D2 league battles with Westhill-Stamford and Trumbull.
Conard slides a spot, and a game under .500, after losing to Wethersfield. The Chieftains will try to get back on track against Newington and Northeastern.
JBWA beat Milford and Newtown/New Fairfield and bumps up to No. 7. The co-op takes on this week’s new No. 8 team, New Milford. The Green Wave has won three straight games after an 0-2 start against a couple of strong D2 teams, including wins over Newington and Milford.
