Archies breaks into boys' soccer Top 20

By ESPNBoston.com

There were very few changes heading into Week 4 of the MIAA boys' soccer Top 20 poll.

Most of the teams, especially those at the top either won or lost close games to higher ranked opponents. Top team Ludlow struggled and dropped a point against West Springfield, but holds onto the top spot over Concord-Carlisle, who took part in their annual Kicks for Cancer event this weekend.

The big move of the week was Dover-Sherborn, dropping four spots after a loss to the surprise package of the Tri-Valley League, Holliston. Sharon dropped from No. 20 into the Last 10 Out, after a defeat to No. 13 Oliver Ames, and was replaced by Archbishop Williams. Archies has started the season 9-0-0 and deserves consideration in the Top 20 teams in the state.

The game of the week may be in CMass. On Tuesday, No. 6 Algonquin takes on a Nashoba team that is right on the edge of being ranked.
