The final week of the Flag Football season is here, but the luck of draw only has one team sliding out the rankings this week with one team familiar to the rankings already returning this week. See who is ranked there in the Class 2A Flag Football Rankings heading into Week 7 down below.
1. Seminole Ridge (10-0)
Last Week: No. 1
Why: The Lady Hawks continue to tighten their grip on things as they have now emerged as the top seed for the District 2A-9 tournament next week. They rolled through Royal Palm Beach and Oxbridge Academy by a combined score of 67-0 last week to stay undefeated. They will travel to Glades Central this week to close out the regular season.
2. Fleming Island (7-0)
Last Week: No. 2
Why: The Lady Golden Eagles have continued their winning streak with a 24-0 win over previously undefeated 2A HM Robert E. Lee and will go into the District 2A-1 tournament next week as the No. 1 overall seed. Fleming Island will travel to Orange Park this week, a team that has been very strong this season with a lot of noise of their own. Mark this game down for the Clay County Championship as well.
3. Plant (6-1)
Last Week: No. 3
Why: The Lady Panthers shutout Gaither, 27-0, but later in the week found themselves in a tough matchup against an emerging Wharton, defeating them 14-6. The Lady Panthers will take on Plant City at home and East Bay on the road this week to close out the regular season schedule before heading into the District 2A-7 tournament next week at the top overall seed.
4. Alonso (9-1)
Last Week: No. 4
Why: The Lady Ravens continue to produce more shutouts, producing two more last week to bring the win total up to 9 wins. The wins came against Steinbrenner (26-0) and Tampa Freedom (47-0). The Lady Ravens finish the regular season with a Monday night matchup against 1A No. 1, the Robinson Lady Knights before heading into the District 2A-7 tournament as the No. 2 seed.
5. Boone (8-0)
Last Week: No. 5
Why: Although the Lady Braves have looked at times as a beatable team, they haven’t been beaten yet and this is one big reason why they have continued to be ranked in the Top 5 right now. They will finish the regular season off this week against Ocoee at home and Orlando Freedom on the road.
6. Western (9-0)
Last Week: No. 7
Why: The Lady Wildcats jump up one spot after easily handling Monarch last week in a 38-0 contest. Western will go into next week’s District 2A-12 tournament as the No. 1 overall seed and should be one team that will go dancing into the playoffs – that is if they win the tournament. The Lady Wildcats do have one last game against West Broward to close off the regular season.
7. Lake Worth (10-0)
Last Week: No. 8
Why: Went 3-0 last week and the Lady Trojans won all their games by a combined score of 112-7. With that right there, it is no wonder why they will go into the District 2A-10 tournament next week as the top overall seed to decide who will represent the district in the playoffs. As of right now the regular season is complete for the Lady Trojans.
8. Taravella (6-0)
Last Week: No. 6
Why: Although Taravella went 2-0 on the week, the Lady Trojans just barely skirted by a strong Piper team, which had us look at the overall strength of things in the rankings when looking at other teams. Taravella did also pick up a better win against Coral Glades (20-12).
9. Kissimmee Osceola (8-0)
Last Week: No. 9
Why: The Lady Kowboys with a K posted two shutouts last week against Harmony (8-0) and Cypress Creek (12-0) to stay undefeated on the season and clinch the top overall seed in the District 2A-5 tournament for next week.
10. Apopka (8-2)
Last Week: HM
Why: The Lady Blue Darters move back into the rankings after being out for the last two weeks, leaving the losses that occurred in Tallahassee behind in the rear view mirror. Apopka shutout Oak Ridge (19-0) while trouncing Flagler Palm Coast, 44-6, to take the top overall seed in District 2A-2.
Dropped Out: No. 10 Dr. Phillips
Bloomingdale, 8-2; Dr. Phillips, 8-2; Ferguson, 8-0; Hialeah 8-2; John I. Leonard, 7-1; Martin County, 6-0; Miami High 7-0; Piper, 6-2; Plant City 5-2; Robert E. Lee, 7-1; St. Cloud 10-1; St. Petersburg, 7-2; Seminole, 7-1; Steinbrenner 6-2; Timber Creek, 8-2; Varela, 5-2
