Girls Soccer Power Rankings – Mid-March

It’s time for the third edition of our Power Rankings for Girls Soccer, as we are in mid-March. This is our first Power Ranking that comes with a new system to help us generate who the top teams are.

Quite simply, wins are worth 1 point against a sub .500 team, and 2 points for a quality win (above .500 or state-ranked team). Teams that are currently state-ranked have a 2 point addition, and the top score differential team gets a bonus 2-point; and that generates a scale. We divide that PR score by games played to come up with a weighted score. THEN we look at head-to-head results between local teams and the full body of work. Our top 4 teams we consider common opponents, though that does not hold as much weight. PR score does not necessarily determine the order, but gives you an idea of quality wins.

Jefferson moves into the top spot with the best goal differential and second-best total PR score. Habersham Central continues to be the team that disrupts the order with a good-not-great PR score, but head-to-head win over #3 White County and a very impressive goal differential.
