Soccer: South Forsyth boys’ upset shakes up AAAAAA

By Score Atlanta

In the Class AAAAAA boys rankings, South Forsyth joined the poll after an upset of previously second-ranked Lambert. It was the Longhorns’ first loss since 2011. Despite a 7-5 record, South Forsyth debuts in this week’s poll at No. 10 after winning five of six games including the mammoth upset of Lambert.

Class AAAAA also saw a bit of a shakeup in the wake of Greenbrier’s suspension of 18 soccer players for alleged alcohol consumption on a school-sponsored trip. The Wolfpack have two ties in their last four games and a 4-0 loss to McIntosh Saturday. Greenbrier, therefore, fell to No. 6 while Dunwoody fell out of the rankings entirely after recent losses to Clarkston and Lakeside-DeKalb. Tucker joined Lakeside in this week’s top 10.

The big news in Class AAAA was Chestatee taking down No. 2 Johnson-Gainesville. The two schools switched places in this week’s rankings while Spalding debuted at No. 10.

Ranked teams in Class AAA suffered a bevy of losses in the past week, and massive movement occurred as a result. West Hall shot to No. 4 after beating East Hall. North Hall debuted in the poll after an impressive win over Buford.

Benedictine snuck into the Class AA poll after sporting a 9-1-1 record thus far this season.
