Haverford Prep School

Haverford, PA
8-0-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 1. The Fords trudge on through the nation’s most challenging schedule and remain undefeated. In the last week, Haverford added to its impressive collection of wins, downing three Super 25 teams in IMG Academy (Fla.), St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) and Episcopal Academy (Pa.). The Fords should be clear favorites to win the next several games, including against Brunswick (Conn.).
02

Massapequa High School

Massapequa, NY
6-0-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 4. The Chiefs grinded out a couple of tough in-state wins this week, defeating Garden City 6-3 and then dropping Baldwin 11-8. Massapequa is the team to beat in New York’s Class A right now, and the reigning champions are playing at a very high level on both sides of the field. In the coming week, Massapequa faces Wantagh and Kellenberg Memorial and is a strong favorite to improve to 8-0.

Previous: NR. The Wildcats made history with one of the most unforgettable victories of all time for a West Coast program, taking down previous No. 2-ranked Landon 10-8. St. Ignatius’ resume was strong before that win, having defeated Highland Park, the top team in Texas, and a trio of elite teams from California: San Ramon Valley, Torrey Pines and Coronado. The Wildcats visit Gonzaga this week in continuing the Mid-Atlantic road trip.
04

Landon School

Bethesda, MD
11-1-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 2. Landon fell this week at the hands of St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.), Northern California’s top team, 10-8, for the Bears’ first loss of the season. However, what Landon’s done up to this point shouldn’t be lost; the IAC powerhouse still has one of the most impressive resumes in the country. Just before the loss to St. Ignatius, Landon defeated Gonzaga of the WCAC and Coronado, one of the best teams in Southern California.
05

Gonzaga College HS

Washington, DC
9-2-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 3. Gonzaga was edged 7-6 by Landon this week in one of the Mid-Atlantic’s most hyped games. The Purple Eagles rebounded with a 16-11 victory over Bullis of the IAC. Like Landon, Gonzaga’s resume is still tough to beat. Gonzaga’s two losses were by a total of three goals and its defense has allowed double-digit goals only twice. Thursday is a big test, as Gonzaga meets St. Ignatius Prep (Calif.), this week’s big mover after the upset over Landon.
06

McDonogh School

Owings Mills, MD
7-2-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 7. The Eagles, after last week’s upset at the hands of IMG Academy (Fla.), rebounded with two solid wins, running past Penn Charter (Pa.) 8-1 and then grabbing an important conference win over rival St. Paul’s 9-6. McDonogh’s upcoming games present a series of league tests, starting with Boy’s Latin, followed by Severn and then St. Mary’s.
07

Episcopal Academy

Newtown Square, PA
5-2-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 8. Episcopal picked up a quality win over St. Anthony’s (N.Y.) before suffering its second loss of the year, a 12-5 defeat at the hands of Haverford. Episcopal’s resume is strong, with wins over Culver Academy (Ind.), several good Philadelphia-region teams and the Friars from Long Island.

OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 10. The Bulls cruised to an easy 22-3 win over West Babylon this week. Next week brings matchups with Walt Whitman (N.Y.) and Greenwich (Conn.), Smithtown East’s first chance at a Super 25 ranked opponent.

Mineola, NY
4-1-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --

Previous: 12. Chaminade earned a convincing 14-5 win over Fairfield Prep (Conn.) this week. Things get serious for the Flyers quickly in the next week as both Manhasset and St. Anthony’s come to town.

7-0-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 13. The Braves continued their impressive start to the season with an 18-4 win over Plainview. Syosset could very well be sitting at 10-0 when the Braves face Massapequa on March 25.

SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --

SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 20. In the wake of upsetting McDonogh last week and shaking up the national rankings, IMG traveled to Haverford, where the Ascenders battled the No. 1 team in the country to an 11-10 loss. IMG then collected wins over Westfield (N.J.) and St. John’s (D.C.). IMG continues to pack in games this week, including matchups with Bergen Catholic and Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey.

SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 21. It was a big week for the Cardinals as they finally got the chance to prove themselves against an MIAA opponent, defeating Boys’ Latin 15-14 in a thriller. Calvert Hall is young defensively, but is capable of offensive fireworks that can make every game exciting. Next on the schedule is MIAA foe St. Mary’s of Annapolis.
16

Culver Academy

Culver, IN
5-3-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 9. Culver downed Glenbrook North (Ill.) 15-3 to kick off a slate of games against midwestern teams. Culver hosts a pair of talented Ohio programs this weekend, Cincinnati St. Xavier and Archbishop Moeller.

8-2-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 19. The Lakers came up short in a classic back-and-forth, run-and-gun affair with rival Calvert Hall. But Boys’ Latin, last year’s MIAA champions, will be a nightmare matchup as the conference schedule heats up. A showdown with McDonogh is scheduled for this weekend.
18

Ward Melville High School

East Setauket, NY
3-0-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 22. The Patriots easily defeated Middle Country 15-3 this week. Ward Melville’s schedule gets more challenging this weekend with games against Connetquot and reigning New York Class B champion Yorktown.

Simsbury, CT
3-0-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: NR. The Martlets shook up the New England prep scene this week, taking down Deerfield (Mass.) 8-7 following Deerfield’s upset of then highly-ranked Brunswick (Conn.). Some of Westminster’s toughest challenges lie ahead, including a date with the Salisbury School (Conn.) next week.
20

Salisbury School

Salisbury, CT
2-1-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 23. Salisbury’s only loss is misleading – a one-goal setback to the Naval Academy Prep team. The Crimson Knights followed that up with wins over the Berkshire School (Mass.) and Trinity Pawling (N.Y.). A big matchup is on deck for next week: Salisbury versus Westminster (Conn.).
21

Georgetown Preparatory School

North Bethesda, MD
5-1-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 18. This week saw the Hoyas get past Paul IV of the WCAC by a slim margin, 8-7. The coming week is a challenging one for Georgetown Prep, with IAC powerhouse Landon, The Heights (Md.) and Episcopal High School (Va.) on the schedule.

South Huntington, NY
1-2-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: 24. St. Anthony’s came up empty-handed in matchups against two of the nation’s best in the Haverford School (Pa.) and Episcopal Academy (Pa.), each members of Pennsylvania’s Inter-Ac conference. St. Anthony’s quickly gets another shot at a quality win as New Jersey reigning champion Delbarton comes to town next week.
23

Schreiber High School

Port Washington, NY
4-2-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: NR. A couple of close losses to top-flight teams – Calvert Hall (Md.) and Syosset (N.Y.) – are the only blemishes on the Vikings’ record. Next week, the Vikings get a shot at Massapequa after a date with Farmingdale.
24

Yorktown High School

Yorktown Heights, NY
5-0-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: NR. The reigning New York State Class B champions are untouched thus far, keeping all five opponents to less than ten goals and scoring in waves. A matchup next week with Ward Melville from Suffolk County will tell a lot about this team.
25

Bronxville High School

Bronxville, NY
3-0-0
SOS: --
POW: --
OFF: --
DEF: --
Previous: NR. The Broncos, reigning New York Class C champions, asserted themselves as again the Class C team to beat in New York this season, earning an impressive and hard-fought 6-3 win over Garden City of Nassau County.

Dropped out: No. 5 Deerfield Academy, Mass. (2-2);  No. 6 Brunswick, Conn. (4-1); No. 16 Garden City, N.Y. (2-3); No. 17 St. Paul’s (6-4); No. 25 Summit, N.J. (5-1).
