6A Boys Soccer Coaches Poll: 5 new teams make an appearance

The Red Mountain boys soccer team hosted Desert Vista on Tuesday and lost 5-1. (Red Mountain boys soccer Twitter).

The 6A Conference Boys Soccer Coaches Poll had a week of upheaval.

Five new teams entered the poll in week three as the coaches start to get a feel for what the 6A Conference has to offer this season.

Brophy remained the unanimous choice as the No. 1 team and Chandler remained in the No. 2 slot.

After that it pretty much was a whole new final eight as San Luis and Kofa came for the third and fourth most votes after missing out on the top 10 a week ago.

Pinnacle, Tucson and Rincon also made appearances in the top 10 this week.

“There is still a lot to be determined,” one coach said. “There are some tournaments coming up that should clear it up.”

No area teams found a way into the top 10 as Mesa fell out after losing 3-1 to San Luis early in the week.

A good week at the Mustang Soccer Classic after Christmas might move the Jackrabbits back into the next rankings.

Here is a look as to how it played out this week:
