Despite an overtime loss to Wellesley in the consolation round of the Ed Burns Coffee Pot Hockey Classic, Tewksbury maintains its top spot in the Hockey Night in Boston Massachusetts Division 2 boys rankings. The Redmen also scored a win over Lowell in league play last week.

But the Ed Burns Classic was good to new No. 2 Canton, which continued its red-hot play with an overtime victory over Reading to capture the Walter Brinn Division championship. It was the capper of a 3-0 week for the Bulldogs, who also rolled past Bishop Feehan and Mansfield.

No. 3 Masconomet sandwiched wins over Triton and Saugus around a 1-1 tie with a strong D3 Lynnfield team.

Despite a heartbreaking overtime loss to D1 Woburn, Gloucester stays in the No. 4 spot, as the Fishermen rebounded in style with a solid Northeastern Conference win over Winthrop.

Norwood is back up a spot to No. 5 after sweeping to Tri-Valley League victories over Holliston, Ashland and Medfield.

Duxbury dropped a spot to No. 6 following a pair of losses, but the Dragons can be forgiven after tough battles against a pair of D1 powers in Hingham (1-0 overtime defeat) and Marshfield (2-0).

No. 7 Walpole got off to a tough start with a Bay State Conference loss to Weymouth, but followed up by beating Needham in league play, then earned an Ed Burns consolation win over D1 Waltham.

No. 8 Silver Lake had a quiet week, needing only a nonleague win over Abington to maintain its spot.

This week’s new entry is No. 9 Newton South, which has put the rest of D2 on notice with a solid win over D1 Lincoln-Sudbury, followed by shutouts on consecutive days against Boston Latin and Bridgewater-Raynham.

Quincy was edged by Plymouth North on Saturday, but the Presidents stay in the rankings at No. 10. Earlier in the week, Quincy earned a Patriot League win over Plymouth South.
