Commentary: Trinity Hockey Team Perfect — With Room For Improvement

STAMFORD — On the day the Oscar nominations were announced, here’s a candidate for most surprising sentence in the high school winter sports season: Trinity Catholic is the last unbeaten hockey team in the state.

How far have the Crusaders come? Almost exactly a year ago they were 2-10-1 after an 0-5 start. They went 7-3 the rest of the way and earned a state tournament berth.

Trinity has been the talk of the Division II world so far, improving to 7-0 on Wednesday night after scoring four third-period goals in a 6-2 win over Westhill at Terry Conners Rink.

New Canaan Hockey Team Is Just Wild About Harry — Stanton

NEW CANAAN — Few people put more value in tradition and leadership than Bo Hickey, the venerable coach of the New Canaan High School boys hockey team.

So when Hickey named Harry Stanton as a captain last season, it was rippling news.

Stanton was a junior, and juniors rarely are afforded such status. Eclipses are more frequent than the instances when Hickey has elevated a non-senior to the position.

Commentary: Colon Coming Up Big In Goal For Blue Wave

DARIEN — The music was blaring out of the locker room, and as the door occasionally swung open and a player could be seen doing what appeared to be a dance move, it was readily apparent that the members of the Darien High School hockey team have much better rhythm on ice.

The Blue Wave had afforded themselves the chance to celebrate. Six days after beating Fairfield Prep, the perennial team to beat in the state, Darien came back and took down its biggest rival, and perhaps biggest rival for the FCIAC title, New Canaan, 4-1, in a non-league game Saturday afternoon.
