Class 2A

The top four teams remain unchanged in Class 2A, with Wayzata (11-0-2, 5-0-2) holding down the top spot. Minneapolis Washburn (10-1-1, 5-0) stays put at No. 2, as does Maple Grove (13-1, 11-0) at No. 3. Edina (8-1-4, 4-0-3) closes out the top four by remaining No. 4 in the poll

Andover (11-1-2, 9-0-2) rose to No. 5 in Class 2A after blowing out its last five opponents, and Eagan (9-2-1, 6-1) dropped from the top five to No. 8 after a surprising 2-1 loss to Prior Lake on Sept. 28 and a 1-1 tie to Woodbury days later.

White Bear Lake (11-2, 6-0) and Stillwater (11-1-1, 7-0), ranked No. 6 and 7, respectively, face each other on Oct. 3, in what will likely decide the Suburban East Conference title.


Class 1A

Orono (11-0-2, 7-0-1) remains in the top spot of Class 1A, as do the following five teams, Hill-Murray (9-0-4, 5-0), St. Paul Academy (11-1, 4-0), Blake (9-3-1, 3-1) Mahtomedi (9-3-1, 5-0) and Mankato West (11-0-3, 7-0-2).

The Zephyrs maintained their No. 5 ranking despite a 1-0 loss to No. 7 Benilde-St. Margaret's (8-5-1, 4-2) on Sept. 30.

Cloquet (13-1, 6-0) moves into the top 10 at No. 9, thanks in part to Kendra Kelley, who has a state-leading 35 goals on the year. The Lumberjacks have a showdown scheduled for Oct. 5 with Esko, the only team to beat them this season.
