Rye and Mamaroneck flip field hockey power positions; Lakeland No. 1 | USA Today High School Sports

Field hockey rankings

1.    Lakeland: The big news this past week was that Lakeland went a half without scoring. But then it responded with three goals in a win vs. previously undefeated Mamaroneck. This star-laden, yet balanced team is looking for its seventh straight state championship. It has earned its number one ranking.

2.    Rye: Admission should be charged for Monday’s game that will pit Rye and its perfect record against one-loss Mamaroneck. The Garnets take the second spot away from the Tigers but their matchup should be a flip-of-a-coin game. They’re both that good.

3.    Mamaroneck: The Tigers suffered their first loss of the season in a shutout last Saturday to the best team in the state. That, of course, is Lakeland. But John Savage will want his team to enter sectionals on a high note. Look for it to come out strong in what promises to be a great game against Rye.

4.    Horace Greeley: In any other region, Greeley might be battling for one of the two top spots. Quietly, it’s proving to be one of the best teams around.

5.    Bronxville:  A win over a strong squad from North Rockland, a school many times its size, is another reason the Broncos get a top-five rating.

6.    Scarsdale:  The Raiders move down a spot with a one-goal loss to an improving Suffern team but not far, since Suffern goalie Alyssa Sanchez was bombarded with 27 shots, stopping 24. A 2-0 loss to Mamaroneck just shows how close Scarsdale is to being a top-three team.

7.    Pawling:  The Tigers don’t always win by a lot but they do win and against much bigger schools. At 13-1-1, an argument can be made that they belong higher on the list. As it is, they move up one notch.

8.    North Rockland: The Raiders slip a little with a loss and a tie this past week but this is still a very strong team.

9.    Hackley:  The Hornets have eight wins against two or three losses, depending on how the Rye game is eventually interpreted. That game remains a litmus test of sorts, showing the Hornets aren’t elite but are very good.

10.  Croton: With Holy Child and Rye Country Day both suffering losses this past week, the 12-win Tigers, whose only question mark is strength of schedule, edge them out for the number-10 spot.
