The planets appear to have returned to their proper alignment and the upsets of the prior week are just a fading memory.  Mercer Island put their loss to CPA behind them as they resumed rolling over league opponents.  Last week's victim was an inexperienced Shorewood team. Bellevue returned from a strong 2nd place showing at the Newberg Oregon Tournament and had the pleasure of meeting CPA who treated them to a 12 -7 defeat.  Don't worry Bellevue, you're still #2, but this weeks matchups with Roosevelt and Enumclaw will put your ranking to the test.  Rogers followed up their big win over Curtis with wins over Puyallup and Mark Morris.  Your #3 ranking is safe for now.  Roosevelt returned to action and needed a goal in the closing seconds to overcome an upset minded Newport.  The Roughriders grip on #4 remains tenuous. Let's see what you have this week against Mercer Island and Bellevue.  Curtis was still reeling form their heartbreak loss to Rogers when they ran into Wilson in Newberg losing to the Rams in overtime.  The #5 was up for grabs, but the Committee thinks you still deserve it for now.  Wilson's upset loss to Kentridge has lit a fire under them.  Not only did they bounce back with a win over Curtis, but they also scored strong victories over Auburn Mountainview and Enumclaw.  Wilson's impressive showing moves them up three spots to #6.  If Wilson moves up three places, then three other teams are moving down.  Enumclaw had wins over Auburn Riverside and Kentridge, but the loss to Wilson moves the Hornets down to #7.  Auburn slips to #8, despite impressive wins over Stadium and Puyallup.  A key showdown with Wilson this week will determine if the Trojans deserve a higher ranking.  Newport falls another spot to #9.  Hey, a 1 point loss to Roosevelt isn't bad, but you need some wins over ranked opponents if you want to move up the rankings.  Auburn Mountainview remains #10 splitting last week's games with a loss to Wilson and a win over Kentridge.  Mountainview's schedule gives them ample opportunity to knock off a higher ranked opponent. Stay tuned!

Last week's Poll Question:

Biggest Surprise Outcome? 
The outcomes of the games might have been a surprise, but the result of the poll was predictable. Out of 41 votes, the Kentridge over Wilson outcome received 20 votes and was the clear winner in our poll.  11 voters picked the Rogers over Curtis outcome, and 10 voters picked CPA over Mercer Island.  No one picked the Enumclaw over Auburn outcome as a surprise.  (I bet someone from Auburn had to be a least a little surprised.)


  1. Roosevelt beat Auburn 14-3 and 12-2 over the weekend in the "Bigger than Big Ron Schaefer Memorial" tournament in Canada

  2. Sorry but I don't think Auburn was in Canada over the weekend. It must have been one of the other Auburn teams. Anyone know if Auburn Riverside or Auburn Mountainview played in Canada this weekend?
