Apr. 11, 2017 — Top 10 for the week of Apr. 9

From St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes taking on Manhasset, to Moorestown-Bridgewater Raritan, to Notre Dame Prep-Marriotts Ridge, to Ridgewood-Agnes Irwin, it should be a dandy week for the game. Go out and support these remarkable athletes.

Our honorary No. 11 Team of the Week is Davis (Calif.). The Devils have had some tough losses in 2017, including a one-goal defeats by Carondelet (Calif.). But Davis had a supreme effort in ending the 42-game win streak by Novato (Calif.) with a 10-9 victory on Saturday.
