Things remained stable at the top of the HNIB News Connecticut Division 2 rankings, as the top six teams all held their positions from last week.

No. 1 Branford won its only game last week and leads a pack of four teams that still have only one loss each, and are a combined 42-4-2. No. 2 Farmington Valley certainly has done its part, as the Generals took down Northwest Catholic and South Windsor to run their win streak to 10.

No. 3 Wethersfield-Middletown-Rocky Hill-Plainville polished off Conard and Enfield-East Granby-Stafford. The lone blip was suffered by No. 4 Daniel Hand, which tied Cheshire despite throwing 40 shots on net. The Tigers also beat Guilford last week.

Westhill-Stamford had a rough week with a pair of losses, but they came against Branford and solid Div. 1 Greenwich, so the Black Knights stay at No. 5. North Haven held the No. 6 spot by sweeping Watertown-Pomperaug and Sheehan.

The first movement came at No. 7, as Woodstock Academy moves up with a three-win week vs. Auburn (Mass.), North Branford and Tri-Town. Trumbull falls only one spot to No. 8 despite a pair of losses, to Div. 1 Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe and New Canaan. Lyman Hall/Haddam-Killingworth/Coginchaug bumps up to No. 9, and Cheshire’s tie with Daniel Hand helped the Rams re-enter at No. 10.

It’s a relatively quiet week ahead for the Div. 2 powers, with only one matchup of ranked teams on the schedule. Daniel Hand travels Saturday to Lyman Hall/H-K/Coginchaug for a 7:45 p.m. faceoff at the Northford Ice Pavilion.
