The final Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association boys polls of the 2012 season included the same 20 teams that were ranked last week.
There was movement in all three divisions, though, including Appleton Xavier (15-4-1) taking over the No. 1 spot in the Division 2 poll.
Milwaukee Marquette (16-1-2) completed a wire-to-wire run atop the Division 1 rankings, but did see its 54-game unbeaten streak (51-0-3) come to an end Saturday.
Cleveland St. Ignatius (Ohio) edged the Hilltoppers 4-3 in a matchup of nationally ranked teams Saturday afternoon at Valley Fields, the first loss for Marquette since a 3-1 defeat to Brookfield East on Sept. 28, 2010.
Middleton (17-3-2) and Green Bay Preble (18-2-3) continued to hold the No. 2 and 3 spots, but Muskego (15-5-2) and Madison West (16-2-1) traded places at No. 4 and 5. All five teams in the Division 2 poll changed positions, as did three of the five sides in the Division 3 rankings.
The WIAA playoffs kicked off Saturday with regional quarterfinals, six matches and one forfeit, while the vast majority of teams start postseason play with regional semifinals Tuesday.
