The area’s best teams handled their business this weekend as the Top 20 suffered just two defeats. Both of them came against ranked opponents: Freedom-Woodbridge fell to Stone Bridge, and Friendship Collegiate lost to Good Counsel.

Not only did most of the ranked teams win, they won in style: Eight of the 16 wins were shutouts. Two local games — Carroll vs. H.D. Woodson and Dunbar vs. Landon — were canceled because of health and safety concerns.

With Friendship Collegiate dropping out, Madison rejoins the rankings following a blowout of Yorktown. After a season-opening loss that knocked them out of the Top 20, the Warhawks have carried over the momentum of a special spring season and regained their form.
