Sept. 27, 2016 — Top 10 for the week of Sept. 25

This week’s Top 10 pretty much holds station, though if you could designate one team like a list of “hot stocks” on Wall Street, it would have to be San Diego Serra (Calif.). The Conquistadors won the Serra Invitational last weekend in dominating fashion, have the nation’s leading goal-scorer in Megan Rodgers, and have outscored their opponents 113-3 on the season.

Our No. 11 Team of the Week is Easton Wilson Area (Pa.) The Warriors’ achievement was a 2-1 win over Kintnersville Palisades (Pa.) last Wednesday. It was Wilson Area’s first victory in four years, and it was sweet revenge for a game two years ago in which Palisades beat the Warriors 17-0.
