This week’s high school girls soccer rankings for teams in the San Gabriel Valley, Pasadena and Whittier.
GIRLS SOCCER TOP 10
1. La Mirada (3-0-1): Has been the area standard for more than a decade. The Matadores are off to an undefeated start and ranked No. 10 in CIF-SS Division 1. Solid wins over Valencia and La Serna and with three shutouts. Had to settle for 2-2 tie against Troy.
2. Flintridge Prep (2-0): The Rebels graduated a lot of their top players on last year’s team, but are still solid. They showed that with wins over Bishop Amat and Marshall to start the season. Ranked No. 5 in CIF-SS Division 3.
3. California (5-0): Opened the season with four straight shutouts, outscoring its opponents 18-0 before a 3-2 nonleague win over Los Altos. Junior Clarissa Pelayo has six goals. Ranked No. 5 in CIF-SS Division 4.
4. South Hills (1-1): The Huskies lost a tough 1-0 decision to Claremont. They are ranked No. 7 in Division 2. The Huskies are usually among the top five in the area, and once they get healthy they will be a factor again.
5: Bishop Amat (2-1): The Lancers had easy shutout wins over Charter Oak and West Covina and a loss to Flintridge Prep. They are likely the favorites, along with La Salle, in the Del Rey League.
6. El Rancho (5-0): The Dons are a team to watch and ranked No. 6 in Division 4. They are undefeated and have scored 10 goals or more in three wins.
7. Alhambra (7-0): When is the last time the Moors girls soccer team started like this? Part of what is impressive is that the start includes wins over San Marino and Mary Star of the Sea.
8. Marshall, (3-1): The No. 1 ranked team in Division 5 has wins over Monrovia, South Pasadena and Westridge. Its only setback was against Flintridge Prep.
9. Temple City (5-0-1): Should be considered the Rio Hondo League favorites. Ranked No. 9 in Division 5 after wins over Diamond Ranch, Pasadena and league rival Monrovia in a tournament.
10. Walnut (3-1): The Mustangs could be a team to watch in Division 5. Their only loss was to Division 1 Sunny Hills, and the Mustangs opened the season with an impressive 3-1 win over Bonita.
