In this week's power rankings, we saw one team go soaring up and another team come crashing down, along with everything in between. A special shoutout goes to Flint Hill's senior Jordan Houston, who scored five total touchdowns in the team's most recent match.
Can't Touch This
Flint Hill got a 42 - 0 win over Sidwell Friends last week, and a key reason for the win was senior Jordan Houston. Houston ran for 137 yards and also punched in three touchdowns. That performance made Houston one of the best players in the power rankings last week.
It was a battle of top-notch squads when Oakdale (8th in the power rankings) took on Linganore (16th) last week. The final score between Oakdale and Linganore was a 56 - 7 blowout in Oakdale's favor. Oakdale saw its record improve to 6-0 and its power rank jump 18 places as a result.
No Stoppin 'Em
Sherando and Martinsburg went up, up, and away last week as they combined for the highest point total (95) among all power ranked teams. Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, Martinsburg beat Sherando 50 - 45. The win boosted Martinsburg a satisfying four spots in the power rankings.
Next Week's Big Game
It should be quite a contest when Our Lady of Good Counsel (ranked 2nd in MD) and St. John's (1st in DC) face off this week. Both teams are rolling into the game after last-week wins. Given their high-scoring efforts against their previous opponents, we'll see how far they can run the score up this week.
