Early WCAL leader St. Ignatius continues its rapid ascent to the top of the CCS rankings, Watsonville goes 0-3 in a trip to Florida to take on the nation's elite, and Mitty tumbles in the latest Prep2Prep CCS Top 25.


1 (last week: 2) ALISAL (8-2-1)
Last: def. Alvarez, 1-0; next: at Christopher (1/17)

Despite a 3-0 loss to Mitty early in the season, Alisal is No. 1 thanks to a seven-match unbeaten streak against some of the toughest competition the state of California has to offer.

2 (16) ST. IGNATIUS (5-5-0)
Last: def. Mitty, 2-1; next: vs. Serra (1/18)

The Wildcats make a dramatic leap up the rankings after starting the WCAL season 4-0. SI's recent stretch - featuring emphatic wins over Bellarmine, Sacred Heart Cathedral and Mitty - has rendered its preseason struggles irrelevant.

3 (4) ALVAREZ (6-2-3)
Last: lost to Alisal, 1-0; next: vs. San Benito (1/17)

Alvarez came up just short in a 1-0 loss at Alisal and faces San Benito Tuesday in a key early-season MBL-Gabilan matchup.

4 (3) WATSONVILLE (6-4-1)
Last: lost to Pembroke Pines, 4-0; next: vs. North Monterey Co (1/17)

The 'Catz dropped all three of their matches this weekend at the Monteverde Academy Tournament in Florida.

5 (5) PIONEER (8-0-2)
Last: tied Mt. Pleasant, 0-0; next: at Oak Grove (1/16)

The Mustangs were held 0-0 at Mt. Pleasant but are still undefeated on the season and haven't allowed a goal in their last five matches.

6 (1) ARCHBISHOP MITTY (4-2-3)
Last: lost to St. Ignatius, 2-1; next: at Valley Christian (1/18)

The talented Monarchs suffered a pair of 2-1 defeats at the hands of Serra and St. Ignatius this week and will look to bounce back this week against Valley Christian and Bellarmine.

7 (11) CARLMONT (5-1-1)
Last: def. Aragon, 1-0; next: at Menlo-Atherton (1/18)

The Scots have established themselves as early favorites in the PAL-Bay Division after knocking off South San Francisco and Aragon in the first week of league play.

8 (8) ST. FRANCIS (5-2-3)
Last: lost to Serra, 3-2; next: at Sacred Heart Cath (1/18)

St. Francis was unable to build off the momentum of a big 1-0 win over Bellarmine, losing 3-2 at Serra last Saturday to fall into third place in the WCAL after two full weeks of action.

9 (12) BRANHAM (7-1-1)
Last: def. Prospect, 2-0; next: vs. Willow Glen (1/16)

Junior Jacob Castro scored a pair of goals to lift Branham to a 2-0 win at Prospect in an early-season battle for first in the BVAL-Mount Hamilton Division.

10 (13) HOMESTEAD (7-2-3)
Last: def. Palo Alto, 1-0; next: at Los Altos (1/17)

Homestead registered a pair of one-goal wins to take the early lead atop the SCVAL-De Anza Division.

11 (6) LOS ALTOS (6-1-3)
Last: tied Mountain View, 2-2; next: vs. Homestead (1/17)

Los Altos came up with a 2-2 draw at rival Mountain View and next battles Homestead Tuesday afternoon in a matchup of the top two teams in the SCVAL-De Anza.

12 (10) SAN BENITO (6-3-3)
Last: def. Pajaro Valley, 5-2; next: at Alvarez (1/17)

Junior Manuel Ceja scored 3 goals to lift the Balers to a 5-2 win over Pajaro Valley.

13 (9) BELLARMINE COLLEGE PREP (6-3-1)
Last: def. Valley Christian, 3-0; next: at Riordan (1/18)

With losses to St. Ignatius and St. Francis, the Bells are off to an uncharacteristically slow start in the WCAL. They hope to get on track this week with matches against Riordan and Mitty.

14 (18) SERRA (6-2-2)
Last: def. St. Francis, 3-2; next: at St. Ignatius (1/18)

It was a huge week for the Padres, who followed up a massive 2-1 win over Mitty with a 3-2 victory over St. Francis last Saturday on goals from Colin O'Donoghue, Jack Mori and Iver Lyche.

15 (14) BURLINGAME (3-3-0)
Last: lost to Woodside, 2-1; next: at Sequoia (1/18)

16 (7) PALO ALTO (7-3-1)
Last: lost to Homestead, 1-0; next: vs. Santa Clara (1/17)

The Vikings did not manage a goal last week, tying Mountain View and losing 1-0 to Homestead to fall 9 points off the pace in the SCVAL-De Anza Division.

18 (15) PROSPECT (6-3-1)
Last: lost to Branham, 2-0; next: vs. Andrew Hill (1/16)

Prospect came away with a big 1-0 win at Leigh before falling 2-0 in its league home opener against Branham. The schedule favors the Panthers late in the season as they finish with five of their last seven matches at home.

19 (17) SACRED HEART CATHEDRAL (6-3-1)
Last: def. Riordan, 2-0; next: vs. St. Francis (1/18)

The Irish fell 4-0 to red-hot City rival St. Ignatius before coming away with a 2-0 victory over winless Riordan to close out the week.

24 (NR) LEIGH (4-4-1)
Last: def. Santa Teresa, 4-1; next: vs. Evergreen Valley (1/19)
