WSCA boys state polls: Oct. 1, 2012

Nineteen of the 20 teams ranked in this week's Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association boys state polls were in last week's rankings, but all the polls saw plenty of movement – including new No. 1 teams in two of the three divisions.

Defending WIAA state champion Mount Horeb moved up to the top spot in Division 2, while Sturgeon Bay is the new No. 1 in Division 3, trading places with reigning state champion Racine Prairie School.

The top five teams in the Division 1 poll remained the same, heading up by Milwaukee Marquette and Middleton.

The Hilltoppers extended their unbeaten streak to 53 (50-0-3) by winning all four of their matches last week, rallying past Brookfield East 3-1 to clinch the Greater Metro Conference and outscoring foes from Missouri and Kentucky by a combined 8-2 to win their group at the Gateway City Classic in O'Fallon, Ill. Marquette has a high-profile season finale next Saturday as it faces St. Ignatius (Ohio) at Marquette University's Valley Fields – both teams are nationally ranked.

Middleton, meanwhile, won its opener at the Gateway City Classic, but had its 10-game unbeaten streak snapped with a 2-0 loss to St. Louis DeSmet on Friday and fell to Topeka Washburn Rural (Kan.) 2-1 on Saturday. The Cardinals face longtime rival Madison Memorial, Mount Horeb and No. 10 Brookfield East this week to close out the regular season.

Sturgeon Bay's first match with the No. 1 ranking is a big one: at third-ranked Green Bay NEW Lutheran on Tuesday. The Clippers handed the Blazers their lone loss with a 2-0 victory back on Sept. 6 and have a one-game lead in the Packerland Conference standings with two matches remaining.
