Girls Power Rankings: Week 1

  1. Park City (1-0) – After winning their fifth state championship in a row, the Miners started off this season right where they left off.  Park City dominated Brighton in their opening game of the season by a score of 14-0. Park City was clicking on all cylinders as they dominated possession and did not allow Brighton to take a shot in the game.  Park City will play two games in California before coming back to play Skyline on March 13th. Park City makes sense as the No. 1 pick in our Power Rankings to start the season.
  2. Herriman (2-0) – After coming up just short in the championship game the past two years, the Mustangs are more determined than ever.  They started out the 2019 campaign with a convincing win against Alta. Herriman is deeper and more balanced than ever, but they will be tested this week as they have to play on the road against two top 10 teams; Monday at Corner Canyon and Wednesday at Viewmont.
  3. American Fork (2-0) – The Lady Caveman started off on the right foot with a win over Juan Diego and Copper Hills this week.  They are led by Portia Card who has scored 14 goals in the first two games. American Fork will play a huge game this Wednesday as they host their rivals, Lone Peak.  Lone Peak won by just one goal last year, look for the Lady Cavemen to seek revenge.
  4. Lone Peak (1-0) – Lone Peak didn’t have any problem with Wasatch this week as they got their first win by the score of 19-2.  The Knights were balanced as 10 different players scored at least one goal. Lone Peak will play their rivals American Fork this Wednesday as they look for a statement win early in the season.
  5. Viewmont (1-0) – Viewmont cruised to an easy victory against West last week.  They were led by Kenadee Hatch who had 3 goals and 5 assists, and Danni Westerman with 6 goals and 2 assists.  The Lady Vikings face a huge challenge as they host Herriman on Wednesday.
  6. Riverton (1-0) – The Silverwolves had no problem getting their offense in gear this early in the season.  They scored 20 goals in their first game vs Woods Cross. Riverton will hope to keep their offense rolling as they host Alta on Wednesday.

  8. Corner Canyon (1-1) – After losing a close game to Olympus, Corner Canyon bounced back with a 12-7 victory against 2018 DII champions, the Jordan Beetdiggers.  The Chargers have come out strong on the draw as their team has won 28 of their 45 draws so far this season for a 62% draw percentage. Corner Canyon faces a big challenge on Monday when they play against Herriman.
  9. Juan Diego (1-1) – After defeating West Jordan on Monday by a score of 13-8, Juan Diego fell just short of Herriman on Wednesday losing 13-7.  The Soaring Eagles have next week off and will not play again until March 20th when they face Corner Canyon.
