Vermont Division 2 Top 5
No changes in the pecking order during what was a relatively straightforward week.
No. 1 Woodstock had a surprisingly tough time dispatching Lyndon Institute Saturday, 2-0. That may have something to do with the fact the Wasps are stuck in a stretch where they have played only on Saturday since early January. They do so again this week at Northfield. They continue to lean on a defense that has allowed a mere 11 goals.
No. 2 Colchester incurs no penalty for its strong performance in Saturday’s 3-1 loss to D1 Stowe. The Lakers will be seeking a season sweep of Milton Wednesday night and head to Lyndon on Saturday.
No. 3 Missisquoi Valley rolled over Hartford, 7-1, on MLK Day in its lone action last week. Brattleboro (Wednesday, home) and U-32 (Saturday, away) provide this week’s opposition.
No. 4 Mt. Mansfield is building some serious momentum toward the stretch run, having won three straight and 5-of-6. Saturday’s 4-2 win against Harwood left the season series all square at 1-1-1. They take on Northfield Wednesday at home and travel to Milton Saturday.
No. 5 Harwood came out of a 10-day break with that loss to Mt. Mansfield. The Highlanders spend the week at home, facing Hartford on Wednesday and St. Johnsbury
