Nov. 16, 2021 — Top 10 for the week of Nov. 14

There’s only a week to go in the domestic field hockey season, and, amazingly, our Top 10 went through last week — a week full of high-tension matches — undefeated.

Usually, there’s one week in November where losses take out a number of top teams, so this week of stability is highly unusual. We’ll know in a few days which teams are going to be the survivors in the several states.

The RightToRightIsRight.com No. 11 Team of the Week is Ramapo College. The Roadrunners beat FDU-Florham 2-1 in the final of the ECAC Division III field hockey championship. It’s the first major trophy for Ramapo in program history.
