Connecticut Boys Division 3 Top 10
It was a tough week for the teams in the HNIB News Connecticut Division 3 rankings, as eight of the top 10 suffered a loss at some point in the last seven days. Despite that, there isn’t a lot of movement among the new rankings.
For most teams, it was a matter of “quality losses” that made the difference. That’s particularly true for Sheehan, which stayed at No. 1 despite a split last week, as the Titans’ defeat came to a solid Div. 2 team in North Haven.
No. 2 Hall-Southington escaped by taking the whole week off. Meanwhile, No. 3 Newington was the lone team to sweep, earning wins vs. Eastern Connecticut, Trinity Catholic and Masuk to move up two spots.
Suffield-Granby-Windsor Locks went 2-1 overall, and one of the wins was vs. New Milford, so the Wildcats flip-flop into the No. 5 spot. New Milford now sits at 6, with Enfield-East Granby-Stafford drops to No. 7.
Wilton, Staples and Trinity Catholic hold the bottom spots – all three teams losing last week to Div. 1 teams.
The lone matchup of top teams this week pits Enfield-East Granby-Stafford vs. Newington on Wednesday (3:50) at the Enfield Twin Rinks.
