Wilton 2 @ Newtown 3
-There is a reason I featured this game just like there is a reason Newtown moved up to DII this year, they are good.  This game can partially be credited to Newtown coming off a game with Trumbull this weekend and being 0-2 that had them on their A game while this was Wilton's first game of the year.  It is always hard to have both your offense and defense clicking and playing like one unit in the first real game of the season but at the end of the day it cost Wilton a loss.  The Warriors now have 6 days untill they host Milford co-op at home and Newtown has a whole week before their next game: DIII Rockville/Manchester/Stafford.

Fermi/Enfield 6 @ Conard 3
-I was in attendance for this one and this game was pretty sloppy but had some periods of good hockey.  The refs at Conard were the same as always: awful.  However, Fermi/Enfield jumped out to an early lead in this one and maintained that momentum the entire game.  Avery Boissy scored for E/F off a Brendan Lemire pass and then Adam Macsata got one of his own, set up by Jason Despard and Matt Boulette.  Fermi/Enfield would have had another goal if the refs did not blow a puck dead that merely hit off Conard' goalie gently but they assumed he had it and it was going to be a faceoff.  In reality, the ricochet was right in front of the goal line and an E/F player was right there to put it home.  Why the refs blew the while so early, even if it was possessed by Charlie Fisher, Conard's goalie, is a mystery.  The zebras also blew some pretty obvious offside calls among other things.  At the end of the first, the Chieftains finally scored off all the offense they were generating all period.  Captian #24 (either Zachary Wieber or Georgiy Tsyganok I think) had a shot one-on-one with the goalie in front of the net that he should have converted but then Dan Kycia got the job done a few minutes lster off a pass from #24.  In the second, Nick Haggerty tied things up for Conard but E/F responded, specifically Avery Boissy again (may have been assisted, didn't catch the number) and then Nick Ferracci set up Adam Macsata's second.  In the third, Cam Korona scored a tremendous unassisted goal, during which he looked like a juggernaut, to put his team up by three goals.  Dominic Sullivan tried responding for Conard with his own unassisted goal but after a few minutes of back and forth, Cam Korona became the the third player on his team to score two goals with the feed from Avery Boissy and Brendan Lemire.  No one scored in the last few minutes of the game and again I featured a game where the seeming "underdog" won but that possibility was exactly why I featured it.  Conard doesn't play again until after Christmas, next Wednesday at Glastonbury and Fermi/Enfield travels to South Windsor on Friday, both of which are very important CCC-North games.
