With three weeks in the books, and with enough teams having gotten close enough – or surpassed – a half-dozen games played, it’s time for the Hudson Valley Sports Report High School Boys Soccer Power Rankings.

The HVSR Power Rankings are the most comprehensive rankings you will find in the mid-Hudson Valley. We cover 56 high schools in five counties; you get ranked here and you’re talking best of the best in our area.

* Records are as of Monday night.

THE HVSR 2019 WEEK 3 HIGH SCHOOL BOYS SOCCER POWER RANKINGS

10) TIE, ELLENVILLE (5-1) and WARWICK (4-0-2) – Gavin Baxter and Kawshar Biswas are a great 1-2 scoring punch for Ellenville. We’ll stick with Warwick in the top 10 even though they let a 1-4-2 team tie them last week.

9) TIE, WALLKILL (7-1) and O’NEILL (6-0-1) – What makes the Panthers and Raiders both equally dangerous is the ability of multiple players to score.

8) CARMEL (6-2-1) – Somebody better remember that Carmel could be quite dangerous come the Section 1 playoffs.

7) BURKE (6-1-1) – The Eagles just lost their first game, to New Paltz. Chris Shust is the name to watch on offense, and Brendan Douthit is terrific in goal.

6) MOUNT ACADEMY (6-1) – The Mount is looking for another deep run into the state playoffs led by Connor Huleatt.

5) MONROE-WOODBURY (5-2-1) – The defending state champs have lost two intersectional games, one to Arlington and one to John Jay, but still rule the roost in Section 9, Class AA.

4) ARLINGTON (5-3) – Maybe a week ago the Admirals aren’t even ranked here. Then they beat the defending state champs in Monroe-Woodbury and the defending Section 1, Class AA champs in Ketcham in consecutive games.

3) RED HOOK (6-0) – Michy Mialma is one of the top playmakers in the area and helps make the Raider offense go.

2) RHINEBECK (7-0) – Noah Lortie and the boys just continue to roll along and do their thing.

1) JOHN JAY (8-2) – One of the ‘old guard’ of local high school boys soccer. The Patriots won the league last year, and we’ll learn more about them when they face Arlington today (Wednesday, Sept. 25).
