In addition to the Super 7s, feel free to bop over to our stats page, where county leaders are fully updated. Records updated through Oct. 14.
1. Haverford School (10-2-1) Last Week: No. 1
Look out everyone, Brett Campbell is back and healthy. He has celebrated by scoring five goals in his last two matches.
2. Upper Darby (11-5-0) Last Week: No. 2
The Royals’ only dropped points in the Central League have come via losses to the three non-Delco teams, including a 2-0 loss to Central frontrunner Harriton last week. Makes things easy on me.
3. Radnor (9-3-3) Last Week: No. 3
I’m pretty impressed with the way the Red Raiders have remedied the loss of Chris Martin, gutting out wins against Penncrest and Boyertown, the later an important victory for district seeding, last week.
4. Springfield (7-4-1) Last Week: No. 4
The loss to Lower Merion might come back to bite them, as could the injury to Kyle Chevalier sustained in that match if it proves to be anything but brief.
5. Strath Haven (9-6-1) Last Week: No. 5
Hope has sprung again in Nether Providence, and it looks a lot like John Ferruzzi. To avoid redundancy, check out the notebook for some stats on the senior striker’s recent emergence.
6. Episcopal Academy (5-4-4) Last Week: No. 6
Losing starting goalkeeper Wills Singley is a major blow. How well John Tyson plays in his stead has become the new determining factor for their season.
7. Penn Wood (10-2-0) Last Week: No. 7
Pretty sure Elijah Ema was credited with two goals this weekend even though his Patriots didn’t play a match. But seriously, 31 goals in 12 matches is absurd, but a lot of the explanation can be found in how well the midfield has come together thanks to Nyakeh Kamara’s passing and playmaking.
Also in the conversation: Sun Valley, Bonner-Prendergast, Penncrest.
