Boys Soccer Power Poll: Knights march to top spot

The Times-Union highlights the top teams this season in high school boys soccer.

Here are this week’s Times-Union’s high school boys soccer Power Rankings, highlighting the leading teams from across Northeast Florida. The rankings are released each week through the end of the regular season. Records are through Jan. 20 games.

1. Creekside (12-1-1, 4A). Last week: 2.

Quality wins: Bishop Kenny, Crescent City, Menendez, Nease, Oakleaf, Ponte Vedra, Stanton.This week: A goal from Josiah Sanchez propelled the Knights to a 1-0 victory against Bartram Trail, a make-up game from December, and secured a top seed in the District 4-4A tournament. That’s a pretty good week. Creekside is nearly perfect on the season, with the exception of a November loss to Spruce Creek, as opponents continue to struggle to get past goalkeeper Dean Jamsheedy and the Knights’ defense. One more test remains on the regular season schedule, a Tuesday battle at Fletcher that should be as big as it looks on paper.

“Ellie’s Night”, benefiting the Pediatric Cardiac ICU at Shands-Gainesville

The Creekside Girls Basketball will be hosting “Ellie’s Knight” on December 5th for their game vs. Nease High School in honor of the Hanson Family.  Ms. Hanson, who teaches at Creekside, recently lost her daughter to Congenital Heart Disease.  Mrs. Hanson is currently promoting a toy drive to benefit the UF Children’s Hospital Pediatric Cardiac ICU where her daughter spent many of her first days.  The PCICU at UF Shands Children’s Hospital cares for patients born with Congenital Heart Disease.  Many patients are awaiting a heart transplant, are on heart assistive devices, or are needing some form of critical care from an ICU team due to their condition.  The ages of patients range from infant to teen and many stay long-term.  The 23 room facility is always full and is expected to be full during the holidays.  This is why the toy drive is so important.  We want to help make the holidays just a little better for these kids and their families that are there.

 

For every person who brings an unwrapped toy to the game, they will get a ticket to be entered into a drawing for a prize basket at half-time.
Please see the attached “wish-list” items to be donated.
