Top Ten: Ashwaubenon Takes Their First Loss of the Season

Deserved or not, Ashwaubenon came into the season ranked no better than fourth in section five behind Notre Dame Academy, Green Bay United and Waupaca.  By January 15, the Jaguars had beaten each of those teams and going into their Friday, January 28th, game against Green Bay United, the Jaguars sat at an impressive 16-0.

Unfortunately for the Jaguars it is hard to have an undefeated season, and they took a 6-2 loss in that January 28th game, meaning there are no undefeated teams left in the WIAA, though Eau Claire Memorial and Marquette are still unbeaten in Wisconsin.

It was also a rough week for Stoughton.  There is always risk involved when you play a difficult schedule, and Stoughton's was the most difficult last week.

The Vikings kicked off the week against then #4 Marquette and took a 3-2 loss in overtime.  They followed with another 3-2 loss, this time to #9 Wausau East. They finished the week with a 4-2 loss to honorable mention, Madison Edgewood.

A three loss week is always hard for a team to take, and Stoughton fell out of the Top Ten this week and landed in the Honorable Mentions.

Madison Edgewood, moved into the #10 spot on the strength of their Stoughton win and solid season.

Monona Grove moved into the #9 spot this week after winning the Ground Hog Tournament in Sun Prairie.  The Silver Eagles are sitting in second in the Badger South Conference, behind Madison Edgewood, and they have passed previous Top Ten teams Oregon and Stoughton.
