ECNL U16 Power Rankings


For the first time at any age group, there is no movement in the ESPNHS ECNL U-16 Power Rankings this week. Four teams were in action last weekend, and with no losses and no significant wins, it seemed the rankings were proven on the field.

No. 3 Slammers and No. 5 So Cal Blues played to a 1-1 draw Sunday, which means Slammers holds on to the top spot in the So Cal Conference and in National Flight A. They also hold steady at No. 3 in our rankings. Mackenzie Cerda netted the Slammers goal off an assist from midfielder Nichole Walts. It was Nicole Miyashiro who found the net for So Cal Blues. Both teams are headed to the PDA Showcase later this month.

This weekend's biggest matchup takes place in Dallas as No. 2 Lonestar takes on No. 7 Dallas Sting. Lonestar won the first matchup back in September 1-0 thanks to a Katherine Uhler goal, and this time around the top spot in the Texas Conference is at stake when the two go head to head on Saturday.

Throughout the rest of the season, ESPNHS will offer a weekly glance at the top ten teams in each 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.

No. 2 Lonestar vs. No. 7 Dallas Sting
No. 4 PDA vs. Scorpions
No. 5 So Cal Blues vs. Eagles
