Boys and Girls Soccer Rankings: March 30th
Natrona's Boys made the 4A boys poll a little less relevent in Week #2.
The 4A boys poll had already closed, and the votes had already been counted, before the final whistle sounded, on NC's upset win over #1 Laramie on Tuesday...and the Plainsmen were voted in unanimously, while the Mustangs came in at #4, and have yet to be scored on. Look for a big change in the polls next week. Meanwhile, the rest of the poll has Central at #2, Sheridan at #3, and Kelly Walsh and East tied for number 5. Big games this weekend, have Laramie and KW at both Central and East. Natrona visits Riverton on Friday.
The 3A Boys poll suffered a shake-up as the top 2 teams from last week tasted defeat. Buffalo is back on top, while Lander is now #2. The Tigers have a couple of ties, but have yet to lose. Jackson slips to #3, while Cody drops all the way to #4. Worland holds steady at #5, but could improve on that, if the Warriors can win at Cody, on Thursday.
UPDATE: The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) recently released it's first rankings of the spring soccer season. Laramie was ranked #3 and Buffalo was ranked #7 in Region 3, which consists of teams in Wyoming, Utah, Nebraska and Iowa. However, the NSCAA has Buffalo listed with a record of 2-0, when they are actually 3-1. The poll was released, before Laramie's loss to Natrona, became official. The next poll will be released on April 12th.
On the girls side, the top 2 teams in 4A, have given a total of 0 goals on the season thus far. Those teams are #1 Gillette (9 goals scored, 0 given up), #2 Laramie (20-0). Sheridan is #4 and the Lady Broncs host the Lady Camels, on Thursday. Gillette will also host Riverton on Saturday. As for the rest of the poll, Central is #3 and East is #5. Both Cheyenne teams visit Laramie this weekend.
Like the boys, the same 5 teams occupy the girls 3A poll...just in a different order. Buffalo maintains the #1 ranking, while Jackson moves up to #2. Cody is now #3, by 1 point ahead of #4 Lander. Worland breaks even at #5, and visit Cody on Thursday.
UPDATE: The National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) recently released it's first rankings of the spring soccer season. Lander was ranked #9 in Region 6, which consists of teams in Wyoming, Colorado, California, Idaho and Alaska. However, the NSCAA lists Lander with a record of 3-0, when they are actually 4-1. We are guessing that the poll was done before last weekend's games were played. The next poll will be released on April 12th.
