Boys’ soccer Top 10: Playoff contenders emerge as regular season winds down

Placeholder while article actions load

The Yorktown Patriots started this spring atop our boys’ soccer rankings and now, seven weeks and 11 matches later, they find themselves in the exact same spot.

The Patriots have clung to No. 1 by fending off all comers, the only close call being a scoreless draw against Robinson in late March. Behind them are two consistent Class 6 contenders: Washington-Liberty and Langley.

For the most part, the teams that were expected to do well in Northern Virginia have taken care of business. There are only two newcomers: Osbourn and Loudoun Valley.

With the postseason two weeks away, there are sure to be more changes ahead.

The undefeated Generals have a big meeting with No. 1 Yorktown this week.

The Saxons suffered their first loss Thursday, 2-0, to No. 2 Washington-Liberty.
