An overflow crowd estimated at nearly 5,000 pack Calvert Hall’s Kelly Field, Friday, for an epic showdown between the top two teams in the VSN Boy’s Soccer Top 20 and they were rewarded with a thrilling match won by the top-ranked Cardinals, 2-1. Athough Calvert Hall suffered a loss to McDonogh last week and Curley absorbed a pair of ties, the two teams still graded out as 1 and 2 in the Week 3 rankings.

There were some minor movements throughout the poll and two new entries, as Friends School returned at No. 19 and Patapsco debuts at No. 20. Here is the entire Week 3 VSN Boy’s Soccer Top 20.

Editors Note: An early version of this poll had calculated an incorrect score from last week’s Perry Hall/Eastern Tech. The poll has been updated to reflect the correction of this mistake.
