Boys soccer: Woodward takes over at No. 1 in Class AAA

Warren Bond

There is a new No. 1 for the first time this season. Woodward Academy toppled St. Pius X on the pitch 1-0 Thursday to submit their claim to the No. 1 spot in Class AAA. The War Eagles have won five of six (with one draw) while St. Pius has lost three of five games. Oconee County rose to No. 2 with a 14-2 overall record, a six-game winning streak and a big-time quality win over Class AAAAA-power Clarke Central.

Walton and Lambert lost, which tossed the Class AAAAAA rankings up in the air. Mill Creek, which hasn’t lost since March 11 and carries an impressive 13-2 record, rose to No. 2 and Campbell, at 14-2, took the third spot. Lassiter climbed to No. 5 after defeating Lambert.

In Class AAAAA, Starr’s Mill moved up to No. 7 after a big win over Walton, but a loss to Northgate capped the Panthers’ upward movement. North Atlanta entered the poll at No. 8 and neighborhood rival Riverwood debuted right behind them at No. 9. North Atlanta and Riverwood play Monday night in an intriguing ranked clash.

Perry, Jonesboro and Chamblee entered the Class AAAA poll at Nos. 8-10, respectively.

Class AA saw Jefferson move to No. 7 and Coosa enter the rankings at No. 10.

In the state’s smallest classification, Aquinas debuted at No. 10. Meanwhile, Brookstone climbed to No. 5 with a 6-0-2 record in its last eight games, including a quality win over First Presbyterian, which tumbled to No. 8 as a result.
