Connecticut Division 2 Poll
Lurking just out of the top 10 in the Hockey Night in Boston Connecticut Division 2 poll last week was Fairfield, a year removed from a state title, with a new coach.
The coaches who mentioned the Mustangs may have picked up on something. Now No. 4 Fairfield has won three in a row, knocking off Amity and, in overtime, No. 6 North Branford this week.
Their only loss, earlier this season, was to No. 3 Branford, one of the last four undefeated teams in the state, which beat Guilford handily this week. No. 2 Cheshire won a couple of games, and No. 1 North Haven, after two losses to Division I teams, beat No. 10 Trumbull 2-1.
No. 7 Hand and No. 8 New Milford tied this week in the only game for either team. No. 5 Suffield/Granby/Windsor Locks’ only game was a win over Fermi/Enfield. Busier this week was No. 9 Conard, which beat the Farmington Valley Generals 9-0 between a couple of losses to Division I schools.
Trumbull had won two in a row, beating Milford (which beat Amity this week) and East Haven, before its loss to North Haven.
