Final state boys soccer rankings

Here we are. 16 teams left. Two weeks and four wins from crowning a couple state champions. I will have some bracket analysis and predictions either late tonight or early tomorrow morning, so check back again later if you’re interested.

Unlike Tom’s baseball rankings, my final rankings only include teams left in the tournament. Until last week, I hadn’t seen any games in person, so rankings gave way to results. Besides, seven of the 10 ranked 4A teams from last week, and nine of the 10 ranked 3A teams, advanced to state — so not a lot of shuffling is required.

Hats off to the Narrows League, which I read swept the SPSL 4A teams for the first time ever over the weekend. I have been saying that league was the state’s best all season. Five teams in the final 16 definitely support that argument.

In a bit of a surprise out east, Pasco narrowly escaped a winner-to-state/loser-out game against Kennewick on Saturday, winning 4-3 in overtime. It would’ve been a shame to see the Bulldogs, who had been perfect all year, not make state after one loss.

Snohomish makes a big jump in the 4A rankings after I saw the Panthers play this weekend and came away very impressed.

So without further ado, the final installment of the Class 4A and 3A state soccer rankings (after the jump). These will run until the end of the season. Let me know if you have any thoughts or if an overall record is off.
