ECNL U16 Power Rankings

5/24/2012

Five teams see movement in this week's ESPNHS ECNL U-16 Power Rankings, including a new top five team and a team that is ranked for the first time.

Michigan Hawks moves up to No. 5 despite being idle since March; a So Cal Blues loss created the opportunity for Hawks to move up. West Coast moves up to No. 8 as it extends an unbeaten streak to six games following a big weekend win. Real So Cal is ranked for the first time this week, as the Flight B squad has an impressive resume against Flight A opponents.

Six of the top 10 teams head to New Jersey for the PDA Showcase this weekend. It will be particularly interesting for teams like San Diego Surf, Ohio Elite and Eclipse, who are right on the doorstep of the rankings and face off against ranked teams at the showcase. This weekend could provide them a chance to move into the top 10.

Throughout the rest of the season, ESPNHS will offer a weekly glance at the top 10 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.
