East Bay Boys Soccer Notes: Rankings

The first rankings are up.

I just want to say, first of all, don’t stress too much over the original rankings. They will change and fix themselves as the season goes. I am just doing my best based on early season information. With that said….
Had to go De La Salle No. 1, until somebody beats them. Enough said.
I feel like Clayton Valley and Mission San Jose are establishing themselves as teams to watch out for. I think Campolindo is as well.
And I am hearing to watch out for Concord, so they might be a surprise to some to see them just outside the top 15.

1. De La Salle
2. San Ramon Valley
3. California
4. Bishop O’Dowd
5. Amador Valley
6. Berkeley
7. Clayton Valley
8. Mission San Jose
9. Acalanes
10. Granada
11. Albany
12. Dublin
13. Campolindo
14. Richmond
15. Antioch

Others considered: Deer Valley, Las Lomas, Dougherty Valley, Concord, Logan, Monte Vista, Alhambra, Pinole Valley, Livermore, Piedmont.

    Surprised that Richmond was beaten tonite by Palo Alto. Richmond always strong.

    I think it’s called results. Acalanes is the defending 2009-2010 Winter Classic Champion, was NCS Champion in 2009 and was an NCS Semi Finalist in 2010.

    Taking down Misson isn’t that great of a task. The only reason they beat Granada and Dublin was due to their field. Dublin and Granada both practice on turf, quite different from Misson’s rock hard, bumpy, multiple lined madness of what assumingly can be called a field. Yes Campo is a strong team this year, but nothing has been proven yet.

    #54. Elgallo, I nominate Westofthetunnel and/or Cokito to comment on the Richmond v. Palo Alto match. I recall reading that Richmond graduated many starters from last season, while Palo Alto had a .500 record last year, after tying 0-0 for the CCS co-Championship with Bellarmine in the 2008-09 season (4OTs, no PKs per the CCS sports WEB site that’s right, no PKs!).

  • The Sweeper

    meant #53.

    BTW, forgot to mention how global climate change is making it so comfortable to watch these early season matches. My electric car runs crappy in this weather…
