WMass D3/D3A Hockey Top 10
RECORDS THRU MONDAY
1. Greenfield (11-1-2, last week: 1) - The Green Wave all but locked up the Fay-Wright Division title with consecutive wins Friday and Saturday. They avenged their only loss thus far and ran their win streak to seven by dominating a hot Chicopee Comp team 7-2 Saturday.
2. Agawam (10-2-2, last week: 2) - The Brownies have moved past their recent 1-2-2 stretch with three straight wins, including a victory over Minnechaug last Thursday. A second meeting with Westfield looms on Wednesday for the Berry Division lead.
3. Westfield (7-3-2, last week: 5) - The Bombers are rounding into shape with an 8-2 thrashing of Ludlow and a strong 3-0 victory over Minnechaug. They've moved into second place in the Berry with a chance to take over first Wednesday against Agawam.
4. Longmeadow (7-5-2, last week: 3) - After consecutive losses, the Lancers bounced back with a two-goal triumph over Ludlow Saturday. They're off this week before their next action Saturday at Groton-Dunstable.
5. East Longmeadow (6-5-2, last week: 4) - The Spartans suffered their first league loss last week, but they're still in solid shape. With a game in hand, they sit tied with Longmeadow for third, a point out of second and two points out of first.
6. Minnechaug (7-4-3, last week: 6) - A 5-4 win over surging East Longmeadow Saturday ended a three-game losing streak for the Falcons. They're in excellent shape for a postseason berth but are falling out of the race for a league title.
7. Chicopee Comp (8-5-2, last week: 10) - The Colts were arguably the hottest team in western Mass. following a 9-1 win at Easthampton Wednesday night. But they followed that up with a five-goal loss to Greenfield. Travis Seymour (51) has 12 more points than anyone else in the Valley.
8. Easthampton (6-5, last week: 7) - The Eagles are stuck in a win one/lose one pattern that goes back a few weeks. A 9-1 loss at home to Chicopee Comp last Wednesday was their worst result of the season. But the remaining schedule has at least three games they should win.
9. Chicopee (9-6, last week: 8) - The Pacers' five-game winning streak was snapped by a two-game losing skid. But with three of the top seven scorers in the area, this team will be a dangerous opponent in the postseason.
10. South Hadley (3-7-4, last week: NR) - The Tigers secured a .500 record against Division 3A competition and a postseason berth with a 6-2 win over Chicopee Wednesday. With that out of the way, the five-time sectional finalists can concentrate on tightening up their game.
