OA, Scituate on move in girls' soccer Top 20
By Josh Perry
Central Catholic took on the top team in Rhode Island, La Salle Academy, in Providence over the weekend and then came home to take on Lowell. Back-to-back games are very difficult, but it would be hard to tell as Central picked up two more wins with 10 goals scored and another two clean sheets.
Oliver Ames and Scituate have both moved into the Top 10 after strong weeks and inconsistent play by Lincoln-Sudbury and Beverly. Algonquin was another big mover, as it jumps up four spots after handing Westborough its first loss of the season.
Whitman-Hanson will be a team to watch for the playoffs, but the Panthers dropped out of the rankings after a tough few weeks. They are replaced by Wilmington, which is cruising in the Middlesex League and has won 12 games in row.
Minnechaug and Needham also moved back into the Last 10 Out as teams position themselves ahead of the tournament.
There's only a few games left in the regular season and then it will be time to throw the records out the window once the playoffs get going.
