Massachusetts Boys D2 Top 15
Things finally stabilized in the week spanning the 2019 and 2020 calendars when it comes to the HNIB News Massachusetts Division 2 boys’ hockey rankings. Each of the top six teams from last week, as well as 10 ranked teams overall, made it through the week without a loss.
Top-ranked Canton was one of the few teams that had a bump in the road, although the Bulldogs did rally in the final minute-plus for an impressive 3-3 tie with Div. 1 Duxbury in a matchup of defending state champions. The Bulldogs added wins against Smithfield (RI) and Attleboro to their ledger.
#2 Lincoln-Sudbury, #3 Marblehead, #4 Norwood, #5 Masconomet and #6 Triton all swept through the week and hold their respective spots from a week ago.
Boston Latin and North Andover also picked up big victories, and the MVC/DCL 2 rivals bump up a spot each to #7 and #8, respectively.
#9 Plymouth North and #10 Dedham jump into the top 10 as each kept their unbeaten seasons alive. Speaking of unbeatens, Somerset Berkley is the lone perfect team remaining in Div. 2 and enters the ranking for the first time this season at #12.
