COMMENTS: Little movement, despite a couple of notable losses down the stretch. Millard West stays on top after a 1-0 loss to Millard South because of its body of work. The Wildcats were the best team in the class all season, and own a 3-0 win over second-ranked Marian. Lincoln Southeast makes a leap after knocking off Lincoln Southwest 2-0. Kearney slips after winning a shootout against Lincoln East and falling in a shootout to a Lincoln North Star (7-8) in the same day. The Bearcats’ five losses have come by a combined five goals.

5. Columbus Scotus, 11-3, 5
6. Omaha Roncalli, 10-5, 9
7. Omaha Duchesne, 11-5, 6
COMMENTS: Plenty of results between ranked opponents last week had an immediate impact in the final regular season ratings. Skutt come from behind to beat Mercy in the River Cities Conference tournament final, causing the two to switch spots near the top. Roncalli beat both Duchesne and Gross in the same tournament, pushing the Pride ahead of those two. Elkhorn edged Bennington 2-1 in the Eastern Midlands Conference semifinal to stay ahead of the Badgers.
