Final regular season MIAA girls' soccer Top 20
As teams wrap up their regular season slates this week, we provide to you one last regular season look at the MIAA girls' soccer Top 20 poll, along with a few observations from resident soccer guru James Walsh:
Medfield stays atop our poll, but there was lots of movement in the Top 10. Lincoln-Sudbury and Dartmouth each lost for the first time this season and the Franklin Panthers jumped into the top 10.
Acton-Boxborough climbs back into the poll after an impressive 3-0 win over Lincoln-Sudbury with Kaylee Sye and Maya Jarostchuk leading the Colonials' offense. The win avenged a 2-0 loss to L-S back on Sept. 22; A-B hasn’t lost since.
Falling out of this week's poll were Dedham and Algonquin. The Mauraders and the Tomahawks are still right on the bubble, but strong play of Brockton and A-B moved them up and into the Top 20.
ON THE BUBBLE Danvers (10-3-0) - Back to back losses to tough opponents, No. 3 Peabody and No. 1 Andover.
Concord-Carlisle (12-4-0) LW NR - Took the DCL Small title with a 3-2 win over Wayland with Andrea O’Brien scoring all three goals.
Shrewsbury (10-2-2) LW 9 - The Colonials defeated Leominster, 8-0, the second time in a week they’d defeated the Blue Devils.
Whitman-Hanson (11-3-1) - Devin Morse scored twice in a win over Duxbury to win the Panthers' fourth Patriot League title.
