The Archbishop Curley soccer team has been solidly ranked in the area’s top three all season, but with back-to-back wins over Mount St. Joseph and Calvert Hall, who were each ranked No. 1 at the time, the Friars have climbed to the top of the Week 8 VSN Boy’s Soccer Top 20.

In the six year history of Varsity Sports Network, Curley has been a frequent mainstay in the Top 5 and has been ranked as high as No. 2 on several occassions, but this marks the first time the Friars have claimed the top spot.

The power packed MIAA A Conference continues to hold the top four spots, with St. Joe moving from No. 3 to No. 2 and Calvert Hall falling from No. 1 to No. 3, while McDonogh held its ground at No. 4.

Here is the entire Week 8 VSN Boys Soccer Top 20:
