Week 3 lacrosse rankings


The top-ranked Lambert boys moved to 5-0 with a 14-3 win over Northview and Centennial jumped Lassiter for No. 2 after the Trojans fell 11-10 to Blessed Trinity. North Gwinnett remains No. 4 and Walton solidifies the top five. Walton’s 7-0 start matches the best start in program history and the 7-0 start to their state championship campaign in 2011. No. 6 Grayson is 6-0 and will host North Gwinnett Thursday night for a big-time top 10 showdown. Pope was punished in last week’s poll for their 12-11 overtime loss to Milton, but the Greyhounds collected a signature 9-8 win over Greater Atlanta Christian this week and are once again looking strong. Johns Creek sent Peachtree Ridge out of the poll with a 9-3 win and its only loss was a 4-3 double-overtime thriller with Grayson in its season opener. No. 9 Cambridge will be tested against a dangerous, but unranked, Roswell team that No. 10 Milton defeated 8-5 this season.

In Class A-5A, No. 1 Lovett survived a 12-11 double-overtime victory against Kell. No. 2 Westminster extended its winning streak to six games and the Longhorns are the new No. 3 after nearly taking down the top-ranked Lions. Blessed Trinity’s only loss was a 14-5 battle with Class 6A-7A No. 1 Lambert, and the Titans take over No. 4 in this week’s poll after their impressive 11-10 win over Lassiter.
