Wow! What a crazy week for boys soccer. Both preseason No. 1 teams (Camas and Bellarmine Prep) lost and the top end of the rankings in both classes got a bit of a shakeup.
Pasco remains on top in 4A as the only perfect team in the biggest classification. The Narrows League teams battered each other around, but are still represented well. Marysville-Pilchuck continues to win and rise up the ranks.
Another 4A team that continues to impress is Rogers of Puyallup, which survived a very tough week in the SPSL South. The biggest mover was Woodinville, which soared into the top ten with great results against Issaquah and Eastlake.
The 3A story has a new No. 1 after top-ranked Camas lost: the Lakeside Lions. The Metro school is the only perfect team at the classification and holds the slightest of advantages against Mercer Island. Those teams could also meet up in the district playoffs.
The defending-champion Papermakers don’t fall far and the team that took them down (Union) also jumps into the mix. White River had a great result against previously-ranked Yelm and Mount Rainier also jumped up.
Without further ado, here they are. Feel free to offer thoughts, insights or even your own rankings if you like. Also, if you notice an overall record is off, please let me know.
