4A Soccer Power Rankings:
This year in 4A soccer we have seen a new team emerge near the top, the Skyview Storm has knocked off team after team this season. Until last night as they faced Camas and suffered a 7-0 defeat. The silver lining in this match is Skyview was missing a large chunk of their starters including Ilia Moscovuic who has been their dominant goal scorer this season. Who would win with both sides at full strength? Only time will tell…for now…Here are your Power Rankings!
- Skyview: Yes, I know I just said they lost 7-0 last night, how in the world could they still be #1. Well, this is due to the body of work they have put with the entire squad available. Knocking off quality squads including Union in a tight 2-1 match. Factoring in the players missing from last night’s match we stand by this Skyview squad being the team to beat when they are at full strength.
- Union: These Titans have been battle-tested early on, and if it wasn’t for that 2-1 loss to Skyview they would be sitting atop the rankings at #1. They have knocked off Camas, and tied a tough Evergreen squad while additionally beating Mt. View & Eastlake. Keep an eye on these Titans as they could finish this year off strong and look for revenge against the Skyview squad that got them 2-1 in their first meeting.
- Camas: Papermaker Nation stand up, yep they just knocked off a short-sided Skyview team 7-0, they beat Kentwood 5-2, but they dropped their first matchup against the Titans 1-0. That being said, they sit at #3 but with plenty of opportunities to move up. When they face the Titans again they best be prepared to get one back and with another win over Skyview…This Camas squad could certainly finish the year at the top.
- BG: The Tigers find themselves in a tough spot as the 3 teams ahead of them have all displayed they can beat each other but also they have all shown they have been able to beat this BG team. The Tigers have been an improving team and hope to rack up a couple wins this year, but with such a tough schedule only time will tell if they have what it takes to climb their way to the top.
