ECNL U15 Power Rankings

By Sheldon Shealer & Chris Ackels

The good news for the top five teams, not a single one lost last week.

The bad news, more than half of the matches ended in ties. Two of the top five teams are finished for the regular season, and the other three ranked squads combined for a 2-0-3 showing. The net result was no change in this week's top five.

Looking ahead, the next match with major rankings consequence will be May 6 when the No. 3 SoCal Blues travel to No. 5 West Coast FC.

Starting next week, ESPNHS will offer a weekly glance at the top 10 teams in the under-15 age group. These rankings, indicative of the results of a team rather than a prediction of future outcomes, offer a sampling of some of the top talent in the game.
