The first Power Rankings of February are here and holy JUMPINNNN we’ve got a mix up. Before you come at the king about these rankings, realize this. You ever seen the NHL on NBC power rankings???? It’s all about who’s HOT, and who’s NOT,.. it’s not based on standings. So if a team if wheelin’ as of late, they’ll get a bump. So if you don’t read this part of the post, then see where you’re ranked and don’t like it and fire shots at me? I’ll bury you. Trust me you have no chance. If you come at the King, you better come correct.

The Cadets are back in the #1 spot after two big wins. They took on #3 Gonzaga at home for MAPHL league standings and skated away with a confident 7-4 win. They then turned around and beat a Bullis team that’s been giving people fits as of late last night 9-0.

A fun one week in the number one spot for the Little Hoyas, but they drop back to number two after a 1-0-1 week which saw them tie Bullis….ya, you can’t do that if you want to be #1. They finished it up with a trouncing of A level St Stephens St Agnes in an IAC contest.

YO GAELS, STAY HOT! Huge jump this week for this Mt St Joe’s team that’s on a five game heater including two straight MIAA wins over Calvert Hall and a shutout of the high powered O’Connell offense.

Previous Rank: 6

Rank Change: ▲1

Landon kicked off the week with a tough road game vs O’Connell where the Bears saw themselves up 4-3 with under 20 seconds left….until the Knights ran a trick play to get a goal and steal a point. The Bears ended the week with a 3-2 win over IAC rival St Albans.

Previous Results: WED @ #4 O’Connell 4-4 T, FRI vs St Albans 3-2 W

#6 – Gonzaga (MAPHL) 12-7-4

Previous Rank: 3

Rank Change: ▼3

Highest Rank: 3

The Eagles are dropping a bit due to, quite frankly, some hot teams in front of them. I get it, they shouldn’t get punished this bad for losing to the #2 team at the time. They followed up that loss with a win in DC over St Albans last night.

Previous Results: WED vs #1 St Johns 4-7 L, MON vs St Albans 7-5 W

Next Up: 2/5 vs #7 O’Connell (11-8-3)

#7 – Bishop O’Connell (11-8-3)

Previous Rank: 4

Rank Change: ▼3

Highest Rank: 4

In their last four, O’Connell sits at a 1-1-2 record and only 3-3-3 in MAPHL league play. They have an insanely deep lineup and a ton of skill, they just need it all to start clicking if they wanna make a run at an MAPHL and WCAC title.

Previous Results: MON @ #7 MSJ 0-3 L, WED vs #3 Landon 4-4 T

Next Up: 2/5 vs #6 Gonzaga (12-7-4), 2/7 vs Battlefield (NVSHL)

Highest Rank: 7

Marriott’s Ridge finally win a game not by forfeit as they take down Reservoir 8-5 behind two goals each from Sean Jones and Noah Henderson.

Previous Results: FRI vs Reservoir 8-5 W

Next Up: DONE for regular season

#9 – TC Williams (CSHL) 8-0-0

Previous Rank: 9

It was a bye week for the only undefeated team left in the CSHL. They’ll look to finish this season undefeated this week against a tough W. Springfield team.

Next Up: 2/7 vs West Springfield (7-2-0)

#10 – Chantilly (NVSHL) 9-0-0

Previous Rank: NR

Chantilly… welcome to the top 10 baby. They’re 9-0 and have been rolling through the NVSHL this year. They sit at 75 goals for and 30 goals against. Look for them to make a deep run in the playoffs this year.

Previous Results: BYE
