For the first time this season, Class 2A has a new top-ranked team.
Stillwater had held the No. 1 spot in the coaches' poll dating back to most of last season, as it had not lost a game since October 2015.
That changed when the Ponies lost to Suburban East Conference foe Woodbury 1-0 on Sept. 21, a defeat that dropped the Ponies down one spot and anointed Wayzata as the new kings of 2A.
The Trojans still have yet to lose this season, as they have won 10 of their 12 games. Their most recent win was their biggest of the season, as they beat No. 3-2A Edina at home, putting their Lake Conference lead to three points.
Duluth East remained at No. 4 this week.
The largest move by any team in 2A came from Eastview, which jumped to No. 5 from No. 9. The Lightning won all three of their games last week by a combined score of 9-2. They were helped immensely by Zack Aday, who scored three goals against Rosemount in a 3-2 victory on Sept. 21.
Class 1A also has a new top-ranked team, but the former No. 1-ranked squad did not hold the top spot for as long as Stillwater.
Blake jumped ahead of Totino-Grace after the Bears beat the Eagles 4-0 on Friday. Totino-Grace reached No. 1 in last week's poll, dethroning Orono, and the loss was the first of the season for the Eagles, who dropped to No. 2 this week.
St. Thomas Academy climbed one spot to No. 4, while Orono slid one spot to No. 4. Holy Angels held at No. 5.
Two teams made their first appearances of the season in the top 10.
Cloquet, which has won all 10 of its games this season, rose to No. 8. The Lumberjacks have won all four of their Lake Superior Conference games, giving them a three-point lead over Duluth Marshall in the league standings.
Worthington claimed the No. 10 spot. The Trojans have also gone undefeated this season. They have already clinched the Big South Conference title with a 13-point lead on Marshall in the standings and three league games to play.
