GoLocal HS Soccer Coaches Poll: North and Algonquin Holding Strong

Monday, October 08, 2012

 

The Polar Bears of Worcester North get to spend another week atop our poll after taking care of business with three wins last week.

North faced a pair of league tests against rivals Doherty and Burncoat, and won those two games by a combined 5-0. They did, however, face an unexpectedly difficult game against St. John's. Still, North pulled out a gritty 3-2 win.

Algonquin dropped a tough 1-0 decision at Marlborough, but that didn't drop the Tomahawks from their No. 2 spot. It did, however, shoot Marlborough in to our rankings, despite losing 6-2 to a very Groton-Dunstable earlier in the week.

Without further ado, here are the results of our coaches poll.

1. North (9-1-0)
2. Algonquin (6-1-2)
3. Sutton (8-1-1)
4. Nashoba (7-2-2)
5. Groton-Dunstable (7-2-2)
6. Douglas (8-1-2)
7. Tantasqua (7-5-0)
8. Blackstone Valley Tech (10-0-1)
9. Marlborough (7-2-2)
10. Shepherd Hill (6-3-3)   
   

Game of the Week: Douglas at Sutton- 11 am Saturday, October 13th

These Dual Valley rivals played to a 1-1 tie in mid-September, making this second matchup in Sutton all the more important as both teams vie for a league title.

Sutton responded well after its 2-0 loss to North last week, winning three straight games by identical 5-0 scores. Douglas is coming off a 6-0 beatdown of St. Bernard's, but were just 1-1-1 in the three previous games.

With both teams sitting on 4 league wins, a win for either here would give it the inside track to a league title.

Player to Watch: Matt Pender, Blackstone Valley Tech

After opening the year with a 1-1 tie against rival Blackstone Millville, BVT has won 10 consecutive games, and averaged an impressive four goals a game. Pender has been a big part of that, and the talented attacker tallied four goals in the Beavers' three games last week.

With three Colonial League games coming up this week, Pender and the rest of the Beavers will look to keep the offense going as their hopes for an undefeated league season remain alive.
