Milton unseated Centennial and took over No. 1 with a decisive 22-16 victory over the Knights on Friday.

Centennial rebounded with a 17-14 win over Harrison, which played without its goalie and one of its top defenders. No. 3 North Gwinnett improved to 11-0 on Friday with its 17-2 victory over Mountain View. The Bulldogs have not surrendered double-digit goals once this season. Walton moved up to No. 4 after winning its region contest with Etowah 12-7 on Saturday. Lambert, the only team to beat No. 1 Milton this year, debuts in the top five with a 7-3 record.

Pope moved to 7-7 after a 12-11 loss to Lovett on Saturday. However, the battle-tested Greyhounds took No. 1 Northview to overtime on March 1 before falling short 8-7.

    How is BT ranked ahead of Pope. Pope defeated BT at the AJO4LAX 7-4. Really wasn’t that close. ???
