Schofield D.C. Everest extended its unbeaten streak to 33 games last weekend, but the panel of coaches who determine the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association state poll dropped the Evergreens to second in this week's Division 1 rankings.

Brookfield Central continued its ascension, taking over the top spot in the third poll of the young season. The unbeaten Lancers were ranked second in each of the first two polls.

Everest tied Hartland Arrowhead 1-1 and rallied past then-No. 3 Middleton 3-2 last weekend at the Girls High School Invitational at Woodside Sports Complex in Mauston, and the defending WIAA Division 1 state champions are 31-0-2 since a 2-1 loss to Milwaukee DSHA on April 24, 2015.

In another big match at the Girls High School Invitational, University of Wisconsin recruit Dani Rhodes scored twice and sophomore Emily Blaney added the game-winner in the second half as Waukesha West beat reigning Division 2 state champion Oregon 3-2 on Saturday, snapping the Panthers' 28-game unbeaten streak. Oregon had gone 26-0-2 since a 2-1 loss to Waunakee back on June 14, 2014.

Both teams kept their spots in this week's Division 2 poll, with the Wolverines still first and the Panthers third. Mequon Homestead jumped three spots to No. 2.

Waukesha Catholic Memorial and Brookfield Academy continue to lead the Division 3 and Division 4 rankings. Seven sides moved into the polls across the four divisions this week, all of which earned honorable mention last week.
