CLEVELAND, Ohio Archbishop Hoban remains the number 1 field soccer team for the second consecutive week, following their 35-0 win in St. Edward with another strong performance Friday against Benedictine.
Few teams have gone up or down since last week’s cleveland.com Top 25, but Nordonia and Walsh Jesuit are on the rise after their recent performances.
Watch the area stack up in this week’s Top 25:
1. Archbishop Hoban (3-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 1, won by Benedictine 31-24
This week: Inactive
The Skinny: Hoban is still looking for a week 4 opponent. If it doesn’t get one, a trip to St. Vincent-St. Mary will be next on September 25th. The Knights closed down their first two opponents, Columbus Reigning Sports Academy and Division I power St. Edward. Benedictine gave them their hardest push ever.
2. St. Edward (2-1)
Last week: Ranked # 3, won # 2 Mentor 28-24
This week: Saturday at St. Ignatius
The Skinny: Coming back from a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter, the Eagles rushed to Mentor, where quarterback Christian Ramos and running backs Malachi Watkins and Daniel Enovitch all ran at least 99 meters. It’s not only a recovery performance for St. Edward as a whole, but also for an offensive line that struggled in a 35-0 defeat against Hoban six days earlier. The mentor’s defense front is also one of the best states, with Ohio State target Brenan Vernon and senior Greg Predina on the edges.
3. Mentor (2-1)
Last week: Ranked No. 2, lost to St. Edward 28-24
This week: Friday in Brunswick
The Skinny: St. Edwards Jaylen and Joel Castleberry thwarted a Cardinals comeback with their fourth-quarter interceptions of Ian Kipp, who threw 166 yards to dampen the Mentor attack. The Cardinals moved the football for just 219 yards in total with 12 first downs. Mentor coach Matt Gray said afterwards that his team should move the chains better. The second half of the Cardinals’ regular season includes home games vs. Elyria and Strongsville, after this week’s trip to Brunswick.
4. Avon (3-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 4, defeated North Ridgeville 49-14
This week: Friday vs. North Olmsted
The Skinny: Defensively, Avon kept the Rangers from rushing 107 meters and nine first downs. Quarterback Niko Pappas threw for 143 yards on 11-of-14 passing as the Eagles put in an efficient all-around effort in their first home game of the season.
5. Benedictine (2-1)
Last week: Ranked No. 5, lost to No. 1 Archbishop Hoban 31-24
This week: Friday in Massillon
The Skinny: Benedictine never led Hoban, but the Bengals pushed the No. 1-ranked team further than anyone so far this year. They had two chances late in the fourth quarter for an tying touchdown drive, but Wisconsin sack Darryl Petersons and Ohio state target AJ Kirks put an end to all of them. Senior quarterback Ronnie Schultz completed 17 of 27 passes for 226 yards and two TDs. The narrow defeat to the top-ranked team doesn’t let the Bengals fall.
6. Avon Lake (2-1)
Last week: Ranked No. 6, defeated Midview 42-0
This week: Friday at Amherst
The Skinny: Avon Lake limited Midview to just 80 feet of total insult. Michael Corbo, senior quarterback from Shoremen, completed 12 of 15 passes for 213 yards and two TDs. Corbo rushed for two more scores, while Gage Duesler rushed 98 yards and added Avon Lakes’ opening score in place of the injured Mason Wheeler, who raced more than 100 yards in Week 1 in less than three-quarters of the work against Avon. Imagine what the Shoremen will look like at full power.
7. Solon (0-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 7, inactive
This week: Thursday in St. Vincent-St. Maria
The Skinny: The wait is almost over for Solon, who, despite the late start, must still be considered one of the region’s top teams. Fresh off their ninth Division I playoff appearance in 10 years, The Comets bring back fourth-year starting quarterback Pat McQuaide, 1000-yard rusher Khalil Eichelberger, lead tackler Markell Green and Northwestern Commit Najee Story.
8. Hudson (3-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 8, defeated Barberton 47-22
This week: Friday at Wadsworth
The Skinny: The Suburban League has had no shortage of offensive fireworks for the first three weeks, and Hudson has been responsible for much. Senior quarterback Jacob Paltani again exceeded 100 yards with his feet (124 yards on 12 runs) and arm (199 yards on 13 of 16 passes).
9. Euclid (2-1)
Last week: Ranked # 9, won at Cleveland Heights 34-7
This week: Friday vs. Strongsville
The Skinny: Claishon Ivory’s two TD receptions from Andre Rallings, who made his first start as a quarterback for Euclid, drove the Panthers back to Cleveland Heights in coach Jeff Rotsky’s. It was his first game at the school since leaving after the 2014 season.
10. St. Ignatius (1-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 8, defeated Bishop Sycamore 33-6
This week: Saturday vs. St. Edward at FirstEnergy Stadium
The Skinny: A strong start to St. Ignatius’s delayed season came against a non-OHSAA program that Byers Field attended. Next up is the St. Edward rivalry game, which, according to St. Ignatius Sports Information Service, will be the first game in September for the schools since 1978. The Wildcats’ will also run into Massillon and Cincinnati St. Xavier on the road.
11. Chardon (3-0)
Last week: Ranked # 11, won at Kenston 37-6
This week: Friday at Riverside
The Skinny: James Pettyjohn’s three hurried TDs set up Chardon for victory and a big showdown in the Western Reserve Conference this week in Riverside. The Hilltoppers rushed for 309 yards, including 131 from Pettyjohn, and gave up only 161 yards to Kenston.
12. Kirtland (3-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 12, defeated Cardinal 55-0
This week: Friday in Orwell Grand Valley
The Skinny: Back facing Chagrin Valley Conference enemies after a Week 2 victory over Division I Shaker Heights, rebounding Friday with a blaze victory over Garfield Heights, dominated Kirtlands’ defense against Cardinal, giving up just 70 yards of all-out attack.
13. Brecksville (2-1)
Last week: Ranked # 13, won in North Royalton 42-28
This week: Friday in Barberton
The Skinny: The Bees bounced back from their 38-28 defeat to Hudson and broke a 14 tie against the Bears on Friday.
Olmsted Falls (2-1)
Last week: Ranked No. 14, won at North Olmsted 56-27
This week: Friday in North Ridgeville
The Skinny: That three-option offense netted a lot of points and yardage as the Bulldogs bounce back from a 35-32 loss in Week 2 against Avon. Thirteen players, including junior quarterback Charlie Ciolek, helped the Bulldogs reach 519 yards. They ran for 392 yards, led by Andrew Parkowskis 134 yards and two TDs, while Ciolek completed 11 of 15 passes for 127 yards.
15. Storage (2-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 15, defeat Highland 31-7
This week: Friday at North Royalton
The Skinny: A week away didn’t bother Stow, as junior quarterback Owen Bainbridge and Akron East transfer DeAnthony Becton fueled the Bulldogs.
16. Streetsboro (3-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 17, defeated Woodridge 72-13
This week: Friday at Cloverleaf
The Skinny: The Rockets rushed for 480 yards with Donovan Washington and Richtell McCallister each at 118 and 117 yards. Perhaps the biggest question around Streetsboro is whether this team is better than last year’s 10-0 Division III squad.
17. Brunswick (2-1)
Last week: Ranked No. 18, won over Elyria 44-19
This week: Friday vs. Mentor
The Skinny: The Blue Devils flexed their muscles in the run game with 305 yards on Elyria. They also held the Pioneers to 72 yards to the ground with 23 first downs to 13 for Elyria. Brandon Koenigs 154 yards and Andrew Habers 92 yards followed Brunswick’s game. Expect the Blue Devils to continue to rely on the run game after losing senior quarterback Jake Scherette to injury in a week 2 win against Medina.
18. Riverside (3-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 19, won by Perry 44-14
This week: Friday vs. Chardon
The Skinny: Another impressive defensive feat came against Riversides’ toughest offensive challenge to date, limiting Perry to a mere 88 yards on offense and 23 yards on the ground.
19. Medina (1-2)
Last week: Ranked No. 23, won at Strongsville 34-7
This week: Friday vs. Elyria
The Skinny: Drew Allar again threw more than 400 meters and the Bees came back from a difficult start in the first two weeks with losses to Mentor and Brunswick.
20. Amherst (3-0)
Last week: Ranked No. 21, won at Berea-Midpark 28-24
This week: Friday vs. Avon Lake
The Skinny: Macky Perdue and Alden Steele brought the comets into their fourth-quarter comeback at Berea-Midpark. Perdue scored the winning TD with 20 seconds to go from a meter away. Steeles’ interception return started the surge, as Amherst faced a 24-14 deficit.
21 Aurora (2-1)
Last week: Ranked No. 22, won in Tallmadge 62-28
This week: Inactive
The Skinny: Six hurried TDs took the Greenmen to a victory in the Suburban League on the road. Their match with Kent Roosevelt on Friday was canceled on Sunday. The Rough Riders had to cancel their Week 3 race due to a positive coronavirus test result within their program.
22. St. Vincent-St. Maria (2-1)
Last week: Ranked No. 14, won in Louisville 34-7
This week: Thursday vs. Solon
The Skinny: Darrian Lewis set the tone with a kick-off from 77 meters to start the game. The senior safety, who also plays receiver and running back, got in on the passing attack with his arm by throwing a 38-yard hit to OHadji Jackson. STVM never lagged behind, but has a short week to prepare for Solon.
23. Nordonia (2-1)
Last week: Not ranked, won at Wadsworth 63-49
This week: Friday vs. Highland
The Skinny: Billy Levak again threw for more than 400 yards after his big performance in Week 2 against Barberton, finding fellow senior Joel Jones on three TD passes. He finished with six TD passes, while Sal Perrine scored three on the ground and picked up 222 yards.
24. Walsh Jesuit (2-0)
Last week: Not ranked, Padua defeated 56-14
This week: Saturday vs. Villa Angela-St. Joseph at Euclid
The Skinny: Walsh Jesuit also enjoyed a scoring rise with junior quarterback Matt Natale throwing five TD passes in a previously undefeated Padua blowout.
25. Wadsworth (1-1)
Last week: Ranked No. 16, lost to Nordonia 63-49
This week: Friday vs. Hudson
The Skinny: Wadsworth has had no problems scoring in his two games, but Nordonia found holes in the defense as the Grizzlies struggled on that side of the ball on their return to the field after a positive COVID-19 test that marked their Week 2 journey to Stow canceled.
Perry (2-1, was # 20), Cleveland Heights (1-1, was # 25)
ON THE CUSP
Chagrin Falls (3-0), Mogadore (2-0)
