Six undefeated teams remain in the Top 20 this week, with Belchertown Women’s Soccer leading the way. The Orioles rose to the top spot this week after beating Ludlow twice and outscoring a tough East Longmeadow team 3-1 on Monday night. Avery Klingensmith had a hat trick for the Orioles.

The Spartans lost a spot to No.2 after losing to rival Longmedow, 3-1, on September 15. Three different players – Samantha Goodrich, Lauren Stocks and Jamie Greenman – scored for the Lancers in a win that moved Longmeadow from ninth in the standings to No.6.

Minnechaug plays his first big game of the season on Tuesday night when he takes on longtime rival Ludlow – a fight that will either solidify or upend the Top 5 in next week’s table.

West Springfield and Westfield, meanwhile, could be winless at 9th and 10th on the list, but one program will take their first win of the season on Tuesday when they face off. Both teams have had a rough start to the season with all games against higher-ranked opponents.

Palmer, meanwhile, is climbing three spots in the standings as the Panthers are in the middle of a four-game winning streak. In a game against Mount Greylock late last week, the Thériault sisters – Madalyn and Charlotte – dominated offensively for a combined total of five goals and three assists.

Northampton women’s football has also surged in the rankings, climbing four places after a big win over Hampshire on Monday night. Chloe Denhart led the way for the Blue Devils with two goals in the win. Central enters the standings after victories over Mount Greylock and Ware.
