With Baltimore County title in hand, Bulls charge into the Top 5

The Hereford Bulls began 2017 young and unranked. Today, they are the 2017 Baltimore County Girls Soccer Champions, still young, but much more experienced.

Hereford made its latest jump from No. 7 to No. 5 in the Week 8 VSN Girls Soccer Top 20 on strength of last week’s 3-2 come-from-behind victory over previously 4th-ranked Sparrows Point, in the Baltimore County title match on the Pointers home field. With the loss, Sparrows Point dropped back to No. 6.

Most public schools did not play last week as they awaited the start of the state playoffs, so the poll is largely unchaged. Archbishop Spalding remains at No. 1, followed again by No. 2 McDonogh and No. 3 River Hill. Also cracking the Top this week is No. 4 Severna Park, which climbed two spots after winning the Anne Arundel County championship.

Here is the complete Week 8 VSN Girls Soccer Top 20
