Week 2 rankings: Nos. 1-25 Rk. School (City, State) Record Prv.
1 Massapequa (Massapequa, N.Y.) 1-0-0 1 Vicky DiMartino fittingly netted the only goal in the team's 1-0 victory over No. 18 St. Anthony's in a battle of New York state powers. DiMartino will be representing the U.S. later this fall at the under-17 World Championships. 2 St. Ursula (Cincinnati, Ohio) 4-0-0 6 St. Urulsa rolled up 7-1 and 8-1 victories in Indiana last week, and the 7-1 result was over previously undefeated and No. 6 state-ranked North Central. 3 Acton-Boxboro (Acton, Mass.) 1-0-0 3 Acton-Boxboro defeated Concord-Carlisle to start regular-season play. A-B's once important meeting with St. John's (D.C.) has lost some luster given St. John's four-goal loss to Pennington (N.J.). 4 Pennington Prep (Pennington, N.J.) 2-0-0 11 Renee Washington scored twice and had three assists as Pennington made a major move in the rankings with run-away victories over St. John's (D.C.) 6-2 and Bishop O'Connell (Va.) 4-1 at the McDonogh (Md.) Invitational. The title match with McDonogh was canceled due to rains brought on by Tropical Storm Hanna. 5 Alta (Sandy, Utah) 7-0-0 5 Alta carries a perfect record into Wednesday's clash with Brighton. 6 Downingtown East (Downingtown, Pa.) 2-0-0 7 Downingtown East's showdown with defending state champion Conestoga was rained out by Tropical Storm Hanna. The match has been rescheduled for late September. 7 McDonogh School (Owings Mills, Md.) 2-0-0 9 Ashley Spivey scored three goals as McDonogh School put away Sacred Heart Academy (Ky.) 5-1 at the McDonogh Invitational. 8 Gloucester Catholic (Gloucester, N.J.) 0-0-0 4 Gloucester Catholic starts regular-season play at Penns Grove on Friday. The team slipped in this week's FAB 50 after a preseason loss to Pennington Prep. 9 Strongsville (Strongsville, Ohio) 4-0-1 2 Strongsville and Medina played to a scoreless draw, but Strongsville remains a slot ahead of Medina in the national rankings. 10 Medina (Medina, Ohio) 4-0-1 25 Katie Woodling turned away a penalty kick attempt by Strongsville's Danielle Hubka in a 0-0 draw between the two highly ranked Ohio programs. 11 Jesuit (Portland, Ore.) 1-0-0 NR Led by Santa Clara-bound forward Kate Beaudoin, Jesuit is off to a strong start. The team won its weekend Jesuit Classic with min-contest victories over two teams, including Lincoln. 12 Baylor School (Chattanooga, Tenn.) 5-0-0 27 Kamesha Woodfine had a goal and one assist as Baylor stunned Bearden 3-0 in a battle of the top two-ranked teams in Tennessee. 13 Lincoln (Portland, Ore.) 2-0-0 13 Early wins over Southridge and Clackamas keep Lincoln at No. 13 in this week's FAB 50. 14 Immaculate Heart Academy (Washington Township, N.J.) 0-0-0 15 IHA starts regular-season play Friday against Clifton. 15 Whitman-Hanson (Whitman, Mass.) 1-0-0 16 The Mewis sisters are playing for Whitman-Hanson, at least until the under-17 World Championships.
