Pocahontas Warrior Soccer Teams Ranked In The Top Fifteen Teams In The State Single A/Double A Division
Charleston, WV – The first state high school soccer rankings of 2010 were released Monday by the state soccer association, and both Pocahontas County High School Soccer Teams were ranked in the top 15 teams in the combined single A/double A Division.
The Lady Warriors with a record of (4-1) were ranked #6, and the boys managed a #14 ranking with their (1-1-2) record. When all three classes were ranked together, the ladies were also ranked in the top 20 of all state teams at #18.
The rankings confirmed that the PCHS girls have a very tough schedule this year with seven of their sixteen opponents ranked in the top fifteen teams. The boys fifteen match schedule has four ranked teams on it plus yet-to-be ranked undefeated Shady Springs, who was one game short of the required four games to be ranked.
Seven girls teams and two boys teams from our region, including both PCHS teams, are ranked and all are Coalfield Conference members, making conference, sectional and regional wins particularly tough for the girls this season.
Undefeated Sissonville, who knocked the Lady Warriors from the unbeaten ranks last week in Beckley with a (3-0) win, not only finished #1 in the A/AA division rankings, but also #1 in all classes. The ladies will travel to #2 ranked Charleston Catholic, the defending state champions, on September 18th for a match that was not listed on the yellow schedules.
The undefeated (6-0) Pikeview girls, who defeated Pocahontas (2-1) in last year’s regional championship, are ranked #3.
In the boys rankings, defending state champion Charleston Catholic, with a (4-1) record, were ranked #1. Berkeley Springs, who defeated PCHS (5-1) August 23rd, came in ranked at #3.
Both PCHS soccer teams get a rest this week with no matches on the revised schedule.
