Soccer super 7
Records through Wednesday

1. Steinbrenner (12-1-1):
Warriors allowed just three goals in eight games last month, and goalkeeper Christian Knight has recorded 38 saves and eight shutouts.
2. Brandon (10-1-2): Eagles started the season 9-0-1 and didn’t drop their first game until Monday, a 1-0 loss to Tampa Bay Tech.
3. Jesuit (9-3-3): Tigers have lost just twice since the first game of the season — to teams with a combined record of 32-2-1.
4. Newsome (11-5-1): With a 5-0-1 district record, Newsome has a stranglehold on Class 5A-6 — one that also contains solid Riverview and Durant squads.
5. Riverview (8-2-2): Sharks haven’t lost since back-to-back defeats to Brandon and Newsome in November.
6. Plant (7-2-5): Despite starting the season on four ties and a loss, the Panthers haven’t dropped a game since Nov. 19 (2-1 to East Lake).
7. King (9-3-6): The Lions have twice as many ties as losses, and all three defeats were against winning teams.
In the conversation: Sickles (9-4-2), Cambridge Christian (9-4-1), Durant (6-4-2), Lennard (6-4-2)

1. Newsome (15-0):
The Wolves entered Thursday night with a chance to seal a perfect regular season with a win over East Bay.
2. Plant City (14-2): Ericka Lott and the Raiders saw their nine-game win streak snapped last week by Lakeland Christian. They bounced back easily with a shutout victory over Tampa Prep.
3. Steinbrenner (11-3): A five-game win streak includes a 1-0 win over East Lake and has the Warriors looking like playoff favorites in Class 5A, District 7.
4. Plant (11-3-2): Abby Sanchez and the Panthers ended the regular season with seven wins and a tie in their last eight matches.
5. Robinson (11-4): The Knights rattled off seven shutouts in a row before returning from winter break with a 3-2 loss to Plant.
6. Durant (9-3-2): The Cougars close the regular season Friday with a chance for a momentum-seizing win over nearby power Plant City.
7. Academy of the Holy Names (13-1): Sophomore Gabrielle Tremonti recorded her first career hat trick this week in an 8-0 win over Admiral Farragut.
In the conversation: Wharton (9-7-4), Freedom (NA)
