Oct. 4, 2016 — Top 10 for the week of Oct. 2

It was Henry IV Week for our Top 10, because the crowned teams were quite uneasy. Three of our Top 10 were taken to overtime, another was defeated, and even our No. 1 side had a tough game late in the week.

There are a number of “derby matches” this week all over the nation, including a number in the mid-Atlantic region this afternoon and evening. I think there could be a couple of twists in the tale of the season that could affect individual and team destinies.

Our No. 11 Team of the Week is Dallastown (Pa.), which, with a 5-1 win over New Oxford (Pa.) last Thursday, have earned the 600th victory in program history.

1. Emmaus (Pa.) 13-0

Emmaus got by Allentown Parkland (Pa.) 2-0 and will travel to Pottstown Owen J. Roberts (Pa.) to finish out the week

2. Voorhees Eastern (N.J.) 9-0

Kasey Quicksill’s OT goal was the difference in a 3-2 win over Pennsauken Bishop Eustace (Pa.); Vikings meet Kingston Wyoming Seminary (Pa.) and Louisville Sacred Heart (Ky.) this weekend

3. Mount Joy Donegal (Pa.) 12-0

Late substitute Grace Miller scored the overtime goal to propel the Indians past Hummelstown Lower Dauphin (Pa.) in the Falcon Classic championship

4. San Diego Serra (Calif.) 15-0

The Conquistadors have shut out 14 out of 15 opponents this season

5. Millersville Penn Manor (Pa.) 12-0

Comets have an improved Lancaster Conestoga Valley (Pa.) team on Friday

6.Virginia Beach First Colonial (Va.) 6-0

Patriots have a looming showdown Thursday against a Virginia Beach Frank W. Cox (Va.) that has been playing extremely well since their defeat at Chantilly Westfield (Va.) three weeks ago, then meet up with Louisville Assumption (Ky.)

7. Watertown (Mass.) 9-0

The Raiders have outscored their opponents 46-0 this season

8. Kennett Square Unionville (Pa.) 11-0

Can the team’s splendid run of form continue Thursday evening against Downingtown (Pa.) East?

9. St. Louis St. Joseph’s Academy (Mo.) 11-0-1

Amanda Isom’s goal in overtime was the difference in a 3-2 win over St. Louis Villa Duchesne (Mo.)

10. Medford Lakes Shawnee (N.J.) 7-1

Could be a sleeper team in Group IV; they are the only other team other than Eastern to beat a Pennsauken Bishop Eustace (N.J.) team that nearly tripped up Voorhees Eastern (N.J.)

11. Dallastown (Pa.) 9-2

Wildcats lead the York-Adams League with an undefeated record through eight matches

Who’s out: Summit Oak Knoll (N.J.) 3-2 loss to Ocean City (N.J.)
