Week 8 brings just one small change as Severna Park and South River switch places


With very few teams even seeing action this week and with the games that were played holding true to form, there was just the slightest change in the Week 8 VSN Girls Soccer Top 20.

All 20 teams from last week remain in the poll and with the exception of two, all are in exactly the same position as each is poised to begin or continue post-season play this week.

The only switch came at spots No. 7 and No. 8 where Severna Park moved on top of South River by virtue of its penalty stroke victory over the Seahawks in the Anne Arundel County championship game. The Falcons and Seahawks played through regulation and two overtimes in a 0-0 tie, but Severna Park prevailed on PK’s, 4-3.

Here is the complete Week 8 VSN Girls Soccer Top 20:
