Rejoice, Ellington. Good news, East Windsor. Shout it out, Somers. After one win last year, No. 1 Tri-Town has started stronger than any team in Division III. The Terrorcats were one of the last two unbeatens in the class and the last six in the state, picking up a couple of early wins against teams from their old Division II stomping grounds. That’s double the one win they had last year in 20 games.

 

Preseason favorites No. 3 Newtown and No. 4 Masuk met to open the season, with Newtown winning on a late Hayden Savoia goal. But then No. 2 Westhill, which took Division II Fermi/Enfield to overtime in the opener and beat crosstown rival No. 10 Stamford, beat the Nighthawks 4-0 to start quickly.

 

No. 5 New Fairfield/Immaculate and No. 6 E.O. Smith/Tolland/Windham took care of their business in Division III, and No. 7 Housatonic/Northwestern/Wamogo did the same, staying perfect through four games.

 

Meanwhile, Woodstock Academy got its first win as a varsity team on Dec. 28, beating Belchertown, MA, 2-1 after a 5-3 loss to Chicopee (MA) Comprehensive 5-3 a week earlier in its varsity debut. And the rechristened Eastern Connecticut Eagles — the former Fitch/East Lyme/Ledyard co-op — opened their season with a 3-2 win over Sheehan after a winless season last year.
