Despite a loss this week, Mahtomedi has built a good enough resume to stay put at No. 1, for now. Mahtomedi beat No. 2 Hastings twice this past week to offset that loss.

Hermantown Blue hasn’t lost since Halloween weekend- the Hawks keep climbing up the rankings and are now in the top 3.

This time last week Lakeville North wasn’t ranked. Now the Panthers are sitting pretty at No. 6, thanks to a win over previous No. 2- OMG Black.

East Grand Forks tied Warroad a touchdown a piece last week and Brainerd and STMA fought to a shootout.

Edina enters the top-10 and Centennial was impressive last weekend at the Lumberjack Cup with wins over Rochester and EP (and yes a tie/shootout loss to WBL).

East Metro has now earned the No. 5 spot, after rattling off 14 straight wins. Can the Stars continue their streak?

Moorhead Black is the new entry in the rankings this week at No. 10, as the Spuds defeated Previous No. 10 Prior Lake Gold in a shootout at the Lumberjack tournament.
