Loudoun County, Va. — As the high school field hockey season heats up in Loudoun County, one local team has continued to stand out from the crowd, while several others are potential contenders. In a three-district county, we wanted a way to put things into perspective. Enter: the LoCo Top 5.
Of course, if you’re into hard numbers, check out the full Cedar Run District, Potomac District, and Dulles District standings.
1. Riverside (0-0, 9-0) —
The Riverside Rams once again cruised past the local competition. This past week Riverside defeated No. 3 Dominion, 6-0, getting goals from five different players and also defeated Tuscarora, 6-0, with both games shortened at the halfway point of the second half.
2. Heritage (0-0, 7-1) —
The Heritage Pride had a week off but come back with three games this week.
3. Dominion (1-0, 7-1) —
The Dominion Titans won’t be penalized in the LoCo Top 5 after getting shut out by No. 1 Riverside, 6-0. Dominion followed up on the loss to Riverside with wins over Park View, 6-0, and Rock Ridge, 4-0.
4. Broad Run (0-0, 5-3) +1
All of the competition in Loudoun should be very concerned about playing Broad Run. The Spartans are quietly undefeated in county. In Broad Run’s only game this past week, they blanked Woodgrove, 3-0.
5. Freedom (0-0, 7-1) +2
The Freedom Eagles jump back into the LoCo Top 5 in convincing fashion with two wins over good teams this week: a 3-2 thriller in sudden victory OT against Independence and a 2-1 win over Loudoun County.
