H.S. Football Top 10: Poll resets after crazy week


1. Thornton 5-1 (Last week: 1)

In a situation where everybody has a loss, we’re going to avoid the tendency to overemphasize recent events and look at entire body of work.

2. Windham 5-1 (2)

… And that means we can’t simply ignore a four-touchdown road win by the Eagles.

3. Cheverus 5-1 (4)

… Although it is tempting, especially when we know the Stags’ history under John Wolfgram to improve from Point A to Point B.

4. Bonny Eagle 5-1 (3)

Scots haven’t played many heavyweights since their Week 2 loss. Home game against TA will change that.

5. Marshwood 6-0 (5)

Hawks keep rolling, with trip to Morse the tune-up for huge season finale.

6. Bangor 5-1 (7)

No big secrets here. You’ll have to tackle Dane Johnson if you want to beat the Rams in November.

7. York 6-0 (9)

Wildcats can’t overlook Fryeburg, but hard to imagine Marshwood isn’t on their mind.

8. Brunswick 5-1 (6)

Thinking any team would run the table in the B-East was a crazy idea.

9. Portland 4-2 (-)

While the upper echelon beats up one another, Bulldogs continue to improve from week to week.

10. Winslow 6-0 (-)

Ultimately, surviving Foxcroft is more impressive than the parade of Class C West blowouts. Everyone’s schedule is about to get tougher, though.
