Division 1 Second Team

The following players are recognized for exceptional seasons at the Division I level. Keep in mind these players are selected based on regular season play not post season performance. Due to number of teams and the talent spread, I've decided to select two teams of 3 Forwards, 2 Defensemen and 1 Goalie.  Check back tomorrow for DI's First Team.

Division I Second Team
F Matt Dumas, Sr. (Notre Dame-West Haven)
The heart and soul of the Knights this year. The captain was strong in all phases and at times electrified with his speed. He finished up the playoffs with multiple injuries but never slowed his played. Dumas posted 50 points (27 G, 23 A) this regular season.
F Ryan Lynch, Jr. (Notre Dame-West Haven)
Tough to split up the twins but Ryan was dominant for large stretches this year for the Green Knights. His top line of himself, brother Kyle and the aforementioned Dumas was arguably the state's best line. Lynch finished with 54 points (23 G, 31 A) on the year.
F Tommy Watters, Sr. (Darien)
On a team as evenly spread out in terms of points as any, it's hard for one guy to stand above the rest. Watters just may be that guy. Lightning speed paired with a complete, all around game lands Watters on this squad. He posted a 40 point (20 G, 20 A) senior season.
D Stephen Mettler, Sr. (New Canaan)
Mettler had a strong year for a quality Rams squad. His dependability and shear size on the blue line impressed. After a strong career at New Canaan, Mettler will move on to attend school at Yale University.
D Brendan Killoy, Jr. (Fairfield Prep)
One of the best stay at home defenseman in the state. Killoy will never fill up a score sheet (5 assists on the year) but like fellow D-men Billy Overby and Steven Bayles, Killoy does all the small things extremely well. One of a few key cogs in Prep's title run.
G Mike Colon, Sr. (Darien)
With a goals against average around 1, a resume´ that includes beating Fairfield Prep and NDWH twice each and seven shutouts on the season, senior Colon did more than enough this year to warrant some love on this team. Only a one year starter, Colon made the most of his time and lead his Wave to a state title appearance for the first time in over 20 years.
