Each week, we’ll post an updated edition of our Power Rankings here on the front page to facilitate discussion in the comments and help us share each week’s rankings via social media. The most up-to-date version can always be found on our permanent rankings page.
The back-end of the Women’s Division Top 25 were in action this past weekend, attempting to get 10 sanctioned games in through a couple round robins.
#19 Austin Vengeance move up a spot after letting up just two total goals against Houston Inferno and Austin Firewheel at Bat City Bash.
Boston Siege, Northampton Starling, and Québec Iris played a bevy of games against each other at Log Jam. No team emerged undefeated, but Starling finished with the best record, going 3-1 with a victory over Siege and a 2-1 record against Iris. Nonetheless, Starling remain at #21, for their one loss to Iris was by five goals, enough to drag their plus/minus at the tournament down to 0.
Iris finished Log Jam 2-3, splitting a pair of games with Siege in addition to going 1-2 against Starling. Their victory over Siege, 13-7, was more impressive than Siege’s own one-point victory over Iris, and keeps them above #23 Siege, though Iris still fall four spots to #22.
For their one-point win over Iris, Siege are awarded one ranking bump.
Only one team in our Mixed Division Top 25 was in action this past week: Atlanta Dirty Bird. They won HoDown Showdown 2023 comfortably over unranked competition, with their closet game coming in the final, a 13-10 victory over Roma Ultima. One could knock them for the close score, but Dirty Bird were missing key players like Paul Lally and Patrick Dougherty. Congrats to Dirty Bird on the win, but the lack of Top 25 competition keep them at #17.
