ECNL U14 Power Rankings

Basically, it's down to the playoffs.

For the second straight week, there was not a single change in the ESPNHS ECNL Under-14 Power Rankings. Considering eight of the 10 ranked teams are finished with regular-season play, it's highly likely the only future change will occur as a result of the playoffs.

While there was no movement, there were several important results -- especially for Real Colorado, which remained perfect after winning four matches in six days, including three in three days over the weekend.

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.
