Going down, moving up
Here’s a head-scratcher from the latest statewide soccer rankings: The Danville boys lost twice last week, then cracked the coaches’ poll for the first time this season — and at No. 17, no less.
Danville had won its first six games, including its first game last week, but then lost to Southwestern, which entered its game with the Admirals at 3-3, and Boyle County, which was 2-2-1 before that game. Either nobody’s paying attention to the results, or Danville should have been ranked sooner than it was.
Meanwhile, the Boyle girls, the area’s only undefeated team at 8-0, leapt five spots in their poll this week to No. 12 after wins over Garrard County, Lexington Christian (which fell from 14th to 18th) and Danville, which also received votes in the poll.
