April 16, 2019 — Top 10 for the week of April 14

This week’s Top 10 is a bit of a reflection of a logjam of talent in some of the finest regions of the country. This includes much of the area around Syracuse as well as Long Island, where a clear frontrunner has yet to show themselves. But with more intersectional matches in the next couple of weekends leading to the Gains for Brains Invitational, we’ll see which teams can come through.

Our honorary No. 11 Team of the Week is Goleta Dos Pueblos (Calif.), which appears to be on a tear in Southern California, having defeated Simi Valley Royal (Calif.) 8-2 Friday night. It was the first time the Chargers have ever beaten Royal.

1. Owings Mills McDonogh (Md.) 12-0

Down 7-6 in the second half, the Eagles scored three straight goals to beat Alexandria Bishop Ireton (Va.) Friday evening

2. Mount Sinai (N.Y.) 7-0

Team faces Bayport-Blue Point (N.Y.) tomorrow

3. Delray American Heritage (Fla.) 17-1

With the Stallions’ regular season concluded, team awaits playoff seedings

4. Moorestown (N.J.) 7-0

Quakers got by Haddonfield (N.Y.) Memorial 9-8 last week

5. Darien (Conn.) 3-0

6. Alexandria Bishop Ireton (Va.) 8-3

7. Manhasset (N.Y.) 4-1

After today’s game with Long Beach (N.Y.), Manhasset has a nine-day break before meeting up with Garden City (N.Y.)

Maroons have Rosemont Agnes Irwin (Pa.) before a Saturday match with Summit (N.J.)

9. South Huntington St. Anthony (N.Y.) 6-0

10. Severna Park (Md.) 7-0

Falcons got by Annapolis Broadneck (Md.) 14-7 last week

11. Goleta Dos Pueblos (Calif.) 10-2

Chargers shut out Royal for the entirety of the second half in order to pick up the win

Who’s out? Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.) 12-10 loss to Garden City (N.Y.), Marriotts Ridge (Md.) 14-9 loss to Severna Park (Md.)

And bear in mind: Washington Georgetown Visitation (D.C.) 8-3, Milton (Ga.) 14-1, Marriottsville Marriotts Ridge (Md.) 5-1, Towson Notre Dame Prep (Md.) 9-2, Spencerport (N.Y.) 7-0, Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.) 8-1, Garden City (N.Y.) 5-2, Manhasset (N.Y.) 4-1, Baldwinsville (N.Y.) 6-0, Newtown Square Episcopal Academy (Pa.) 2-0, Alexandria St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes (Va.) 12-1
