ECNL U16 Power Rankings


No. 4 Slammers clinched the top overall seed in this month's ECNL National Championships, thanks to a 1-1 tie between PDA and FC Stars of Mass on Sunday. But for now, KCFC still holds on to the top spot in the ESPNHS ECNL Under-16 Power Rankings.

So Cal Blues dropped out of the rankings for the first time after being as high as No. 3 in April. The California squad is winless in their last eight matches and have scored just four goals in that stretch. This opens the door for No. 10 Mustang to re-appear in our rankings after a four-week hiatus. Mustang finished its season last weekend and locked up a Northwest Conference crown.

The final weekend of ECNL regular season play will feature two of the top three teams in the rankings and a couple of important matches this weekend. No. 2 Lonestar could have a compelling case at No. 1 if its beats the Dallas Texans on Sunday. And No. 3 PDA has just two games remaining in its quest for an undefeated season as it takes on Albertson Fury and East Meadow this 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.
