Soccer super 7
Records through Monday
1. Brandon (8-0, 6-0-1): Four Eagles have at least four goals this season, and the Eagles are just as dominant on defense, claiming six shutouts in nine games.
2. Jesuit (7-2-2, 5-0-1): Jesuit’s latest loss came at the hands of 17-0 Monteverde, but aside from that blip the Tigers have rolled, averaging more than four goals per game.
3. Steinbrenner (7-1-1, 3-0-1): The Warriors, which fell in last year’s state final, have seen last season’s success carry over with the help of Blake Wilson’s 10 goals in nine games.
4. Plant (5-2-4, 2-1-1): Plant has almost as many ties as wins, but the teams to which the Panthers have fallen have a combined four losses, and Plant is riding a five-game win streak.
5. Newsome (7-3-1, 3-0-1): The Wolves may have three losses, but they’ve played a strong schedule through the first half of the season.
6. Sickles (7-3-2, 4-1): The Gryphons started their season with a big win against Jesuit and have four multi-goal wins this season.
7. Lennard (6-2-1, 4-2-1): The Longhorns have yet to play Hillsborough powerhouses, but Lennard has averaged nearly four goals per game and Kristopher Ospina leads the way with 11.

1. Newsome (10-0): Entering Tuesday, the Wolves had only allowed four goals all season. Newsome has scored at least that many in five games so far.
2. Plant City (9-1): Take away a 1-0 loss to Newsome, and Ericka Lott and the Raiders have scored 71 goals while allowing only two.
3. Academy of the Holy Names (11-1): Who needs experience? The Jaguars’ leading scorer (Hannah Menendez, 11 goals) and top goalie (Kendall Catone, 91 saves, six shutouts) are both freshmen.
4. Steinbrenner (9-3): The Warriors notched one of their best wins of the season last week with a 1-0 victory over East Lake.
5. Plant (8-3-2): Seniors Abby Sanchez and Nastasia Asgedom have combined for 25 goals for a team that can still make a run in Class 5A, District 7.
6. Robinson (9-1): Since an early loss to Sickles, Hayden Jennewein and the Knights have outscored opponents 55-1.
7. Durant (6-3-2): A 2-1 loss to mighty Newsome was a minor letdown after a 1-0 victory over a solid Gaither team.
