The battle for first place has tightened.

 

Thanks to a 9-2-2 Week 8, original Daily Gazette ECAC Hockey Faceoff Selections player Achilles 3-7-5 pulled to within two points of league-leading David Trestick. Trestick, in his first season in the competition, went 7-4-2.

 

Four others went 9-2-2. They were Christopher Chadwick, Oliver Collins, Josh Seguin and Joseph Cadabes. I’m happy for Joseph, who’s been muddling around the .500 mark.

 

I went 7-4-2. I’m 10 points out of first place.

 

Here are the standings, with Week 8 records in parentheses.
