N. Pocono, Wyoming Area boys; Dallas, Lakeland girls finish No. 1

Following the loss by the last team standing a day earlier, the final Riverfront United Super Six Soccer Power Rankings of District 2 teams was released Sunday night.

Wyoming Area returned to the top of the Small School boys rankings, joining the North Pocono boys, Dallas girls and Lakeland girls at No. 1 in the final rankings.

Both sets of Big School rankings remained exactly as they had been a week earlier, with the two district champions finishing 1-2 in each case.

The changes occurred in Small Schools.

Wyoming Area and Wyoming Seminary moved up a spot in boys to first and second while Holy Cross dropped from first to third.

Lake-Lehman swapped places with Holy Redeemer in Small School girls, going from third to second.

North Pocono added the first state tournament victory in school history – and the only by a District 2 soccer team this year – to its Lackawanna League Division 1 and District 2 Class 3A boys titles. The Trojans had their season end with a 4-3 loss to Archbishop Wood in Saturday’s state quarterfinals.

District Class 4A champion Hazleton Area is second followed by Wyoming Valley Conference Division 1 champion Crestwood in third.

Valley View, Abington Heights and Wallenpaupack round out the Big School boys rankings.

Wyoming Area, which had a perfect season in WVC Division 2, moved back to the top of the Small School boys rankings with the help of two regular-season wins over Wyoming Seminary, the team it lost to in overtime in the district Class 2A final.

Wyoming Seminary suffered its own overtime loss in the state tournament this week while Holy Cross was being overwhelmed by Camp Hill, 7-2, in the smaller classification.

The Crusaders, the Lackawanna Division 2 and district Class A champions, slipped into third for the final rankings.

Blue Ridge, Dunmore and Elk Lake remained 4-5-6 in the final rankings.

Dallas, the WVC Division 1 and district Class 3A champion, and Delaware Valley, the Lackawanna Division 1 and district Class 4A champion, finished 1-2 in Big School girls. They are followed, again, in order, by Abington Heights, Wyoming Valley West, Wilkes-Barre Area and Berwick.

Lakeland held the Small School girls top spot. The Lady Chiefs won Lackawanna Division 2 and district Class A.

Second-ranked Lake-Lehman is the WVC Division 2 champion, including two wins over No. 3 Holy Redeemer, the team it fell to for the district Class 2A title.

Wyoming Area, Montrose and Nanticoke held fourth through sixth.
