Port Chester’s Steven Hernandez and Byram Hills’ Max Levy during the Byram Hills vs. Port Chester boys soccer game in Armonk, Sept. 4, 2015.

1. Arlington (2-0) — It’s been a ho-hum start for the Admirals, a team that many coaches believe to be the best in Section 1. Through two games, they’ve outscored opponents 11-0.

2. Byram Hills (3-0) — The Bobcats look like they have all of the goods to repeat in Class A. Jack Beer and Ryan Noel have provided a nice boost since returning from the U.S. Soccer Academy.

3. Scarsdale (4-0) — Through four games, the Raiders have yet to allow a goal while scoring 11. They’re looking like a serious contender in Class AA in Paul Brooks’ second year at the helm. Upcoming games with league rivals Mamaroneck and New Rochelle should be telling.

4. Fox Lane (2-0) — For those who thought the Foxes graduated too much firepower after last year’s run to the Class AA semifinals, Friday’s 3-2 win over Port Chester proved that they are still a top team.

5. Mamaroneck (3-0-1) — A revenge win over defending Class AA champ John Jay-EF had to feel sweet and sent a clear message to the rest of the section: The new-look Tigers can still play.

6. New Rochelle (3-0-1) — The Huguenots went into Mamaroneck on Friday – which is not an easy place to play – and came away with a 0-0 tie. Their defense has been a strength, as they’ve yet to allow a goal in four games.

7. Port Chester (2-2) — Sandwiched around a nice win over Pearl River are disappointing losses to Byram Hills and Fox Lane. The Rams have plenty of talent, but need to find consistency o reach their potential.

8. Pearl River (3-1) — The Pirates have dominated Rockland County, beating Nyack (6-0) and Clarkstown South (7-1) handily. But they came up just short in their biggest test so far, a 2-1 loss to Port Chester.

9. Ketcham (2-0) — The Indians won a wild one at Horace Greeley on Friday, 4-3, and look like they could be building off the momentum from last season. They’ll continue to move up if they can knock out league rivals Arlington and John Jay-EF.

10. John Jay-East Fishkill (2-1) — After opening the season with an overtime loss at Mamaroneck, the Patriots have responded with back-to-back wins. They’re young, but should improve as the season wears on.

On the bubble: Bronxville (4-0), Horace Greeley (1-2), Rye (3-0), Somers (3-0), Tappan Zee (2-0)
