LOUISVILLE, Ky. — California’s Norco rolled past Vista Murrieta, 8-2, in a CIF Southern Section playoff game to improve to 31-0 and remain the clear No. 1 in the USA Today Sports/NFCA High School Super 25 poll.
The Cougars have now won 42 of their last 43 contests. The lone loss during that stretch was an 1-0 loss to Mater Dei in their 2016 finale — the CIF Southern Section playoffs. Norco plays Pacifica today in the next round of the CIF playoffs.
North Carolina’s unbeaten Cape Fear (26-0) kept winning to continue in the No. 2 spot, while Bishop O’Connell (27-0), Coral Springs Charter (30-1) and Woodinville (22-0) all leapfrogged last week’s third-ranked team, Pinnacle (34-2), which was idle this week.
Other teams moving up this week are New Hampshire’s Londonderry (17-1) and Kentucky’s Scott County (30-4), which won five and four games, respectively, to gain three places apiece and take over the No. 19 and 20 positions.
