GoLocal High School Soccer Coaches Poll: North on Top

Monday, October 01, 2012

 

GoLocalWorcester reached out to high school soccer coaches in Central Mass to see who they think the best teams in the region are. Here are the results of our second coaches poll.

1. North: 6-1-0
2. Algonquin: 5-0-2
3. Sutton: 6-1-1
4. Nashoba: 6-1-2
5. Groton-Dunstable: 5-2-1
6. Shepherd Hill: 6-2-2
7. Wachusett: 4-3-1
8. Leicester: 6-1-0
9. Marlborough: 5-1-2
10. Shrewsbury: 4-2-0


Game of the Week: Shepherd Hill at Leicester, Monday at 3:30 pm

Shepherd Hill will look to get back on track after going 1-1-1 last week, including a close loss to top-rated North. The Rams bring a balanced offensive attack into this matchup with the Wolverines of Leicester.

Both teams have been able to score points in bunches this season, but Shepherd Hill struggled to generate offense against North, Wachusett and Algonquin recently. Both teams have the potential to be very good, and this game will tell the rest of Central Mass a bunch about each of them.

League Game of the Week: Nashoba at Algonquin, Tuesday at 5 pm

Algonquin is typically a power in the region, but there is a feeling that the Tomahawks may be vulnerable this year. If Nashoba wants to win Midland League A, the Chieftains will have to beat Algonquin at some point, and this early season matchup seems like as good a time as any.

Algonquin is coming off big wins against Shrewsbury and Wachusett, while Nashoba is off to a 2-0 league start with a 4-0 blow out of Wachusett. The winner of this game will have the inside track to a league championship.

Player to Watch: Kweku Fynn, senior, North

In games against regional powers Shepherd Hill and Sutton, Fynn scored three goals to help the Polar Bears move to 6-1, and take the top spot in our rankings.

Fynn now has 10 goals on the year for North, which appears to be on its way to another playoff run.
