Downingtown East took over the No. 1 spot and Garnet Valley entered the rankings at the No. 4 position with three big wins last week. This week’s rankings:

1, Downingtown East (12-1) –
The Cougars take over the top spot after handling former No. 1 Archbishop Caroll, 13-8. Their biggest game this week is a home contest Tuesday with Ches-Mont League foe Avon Grove. Prev: No. 4

2, Archbishop Carroll (11-2) – The Patriots were held to their lowest goal total this year in the loss to Downingtown East. They have two Catholic League games and then play at Springfield-Delco on Saturday. Prev: No. 1

3, Radnor (10-2) – The Red Raiders held their own Saturday against Baltimore power Bryn Mawr, falling 14-9. They hope to rebound this week in two key Central League games, Tuesday at Harriton and Thursday at home vs. Strath Haven. Prev: No. 3

4. Garnet Valley (11-2) – The Jaguars raced into the rankings with an impressive week that included Central League wins over Harriton (17-12) and Springfield-Delco (13-12) as well as a 20-8 rout of Baldwin School at Katie Samson. They host Ridley Tuesday and play at Marple Newtown Thursday. Prev: NR

5, Springfield-Delco (10-2) –
The Cougars move up a notch after an impressive 16-10 win over Notre Dame, formerly No. 2. Their biggest game this week is a home date with Archbishop Carroll on Saturday. Prev: No. 6

6, Episcopal Academy (8-4) – EA followed up its 14-13 win over Notre Dame with a 13-9 triumph over Conestoga. It hosts Agnes Irwin Wednesday and Springside School Friday. Prev: No. 8

7, Great Valley (11-1) – The Patriots are stuck in second place in the Ches-Mont unless someone upsets Downingtown East. They have a game Saturday at Conestoga that will be key in the District 1 seedings. Prev: No. 7

8, Harriton (12-2) – The Rams have been struggling lately and needed a late goal to upend Unionville, 11-10, at Katie Samson. Their hopes of a share of the Central League title rest on beating undefeated league leader Radnor at home on Tuesday. Prev: No. 5

9, Notre Dame (8-3) –
The Irish had a tough week, falling to Episcopal Academy and Springfield-Delco. They look to rebound Tuesday at home against Penn Charter in an Inter-Ac League game. Prev: No. 2

10. North Penn (14-1) – The Maidens can virtually clinch the Suburban One Continental Conference title Tuesday with a win at second-place Hatboro-Horsham. Prev: No. 10

Under Consideration: Boyertown (11-4), Conestoga (6-4), Council Rock North (9-2), Hatboro-Horsham (11-1), Strath Haven (10-3), Villa Maria Academy (10-2).
