Defending Class L champion New Canaan (2-0) grabbed a pair of first place votes and is ranked No. 2 while Cheshire (3-0) also was awarded a first place vote. The Rams are ranked third.
Every team in the top 10 is from Class L and seven of the top teams are from the FCIAC including Greenwich, who is off to an 0-3 start with a four-goal loss to Staples and losses to Massapequa, N.Y. and Ridgewood, N.J. Greenwich travels to No. 3 Cheshire on Thursday.
