FLN Girls 2A Top 10 Poll for the Week Ending 4/3/22!

Written by Lee Roggenburg on . Posted in , , , .

A few key games this week caused some move in the bottom half. Ponte Vedra showed well with a one-goal road loss to Steinbrenner and a 5-goal win at Plant, with an easy home win over Creekside. Newsome showed big against Plant too and Alonso, and only have Robinson at home this week.

Boca Raton disappointed against AH-Delray, as so many have, but I watched the first half, and they just didn’t show any intensity once they fell behind. Hard to evaluate a game like that given what else they’ve accomplished this year.

Hagerty continues their second half run and host Oviedo tomorrow.

When I look at the Also Considered list, the biggest impediments to moving up are strength of schedule. Oviedo has a great record but really haven’t beaten anyone worth moving the needle, so how they show tomorrow is very important. Sickles just doesn’t have a win that gets them into the Top 10 yet. Neither do Gulf Coast or Mitchell.

Manatee has one goal losses to Out-of-Door and St. Stephen’s and even with the 2-goal loss at Gulf Coast, that is a better overall resume right now. I’m giving Plant the benefit of the doubt after this past week since they hold a comfortable win over Gulf Coast, but the 2 teams are kind of going in opposite directions right now.

Vero holds on to #1 with the 15-11 win over Benjamin and they finish with a strong series of South Fork on Monday, LHP on Tuesday and STA on Wednesday, all at home!

Steinbrenner won four games last week, including the 6-5 win over Ponte Vedra. Bartram went 2-0, with a close 16-14 win over Lake Mary, as well as an easy home win. Lake Mary vaults up two spots due to that quality loss and victories over Creekside and Sayre. They have no games left on the schedule.
