1. New Canaan (5-0): Maybe a team from Massachusetts can slow down the Rams?

2. Ansonia (5-0): Chargers facing their toughest test thus far in Masuk.

3. St. Joseph (5-0): Bassick in the line of fire this week.

4. Newtown (5-0): Nighthawks putting up a lot of points, Wolcott putting up a lot of points. This one should be fun.

5. Fairfield Prep (4-1): Big win over Shelton last week, huge game at Hand this weekend.

6. Darien (4-1): Blue Wave looking to make it two in a row.

7. Shelton (4-1): Gaels were rolling before they ran into Prep, look to rebound this weekend.

8. Barlow (4-1): Barlow enters the Elite 8 and is facing winless Torrington this week.

8. Staples (4-1): Wreckers should not look past a tough Danbury squad before they meet New Canaan next week.

Best of the rest: West Haven (4-1), Ridgefield (4-1), Masuk (4-1)
