CASL Chelsea takes over the No. 1 spot in this week's ESPNHS ECNL Under-17 Power Rankings following Eclipse Select's loss at the PDA Showcase. Eight of the 10 teams in our rankings saw movement this week after the busy weekend in New Jersey.
No. 4 Scorpions moves up two spots this week after tying No. 7 Colorado Rush and beating No. 9 Mustang and a solid San Diego Surf team. Rush holds steady after the tie thanks to two big wins on Sunday and Monday.
The top performer of the weekend though was No. 8 FC Virginia, who was the only ranked team to turn in a perfect 3-0 trip. That's a huge move for FC Virginia, who not only solidified its spot in the top 10, but also clinched a berth to next month's ECNL National Championships in Waukegan, Ill.
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.
