For the 2nd week in a row, Crest is the #1 team, but the South Pointe Stallions continue their climb up the FFN Top 10 and land at #2 in this week's poll.
The #2 ranking is the highest in program history in the FFN Top 10.
The 3A Stallions are 4-0 with wins over 4A foes like (2-2) Nation Ford, (3-1) York, and (3-1) Vance who they beat last Friday 41-34 in Charlotte. This Friday, they take on another 4A team in rival (3-1) Northwestern.
Up 1 spot to #3 is Mallard Creek. The Mavericks rebounded from their first loss of the season to pound Garinger 70-0 last Friday.
Even though they are 4-0, East Lincoln is down 2 spots to #4. The Mustangs beat (1-3) Forestview this past Monday 41-28. East has not beaten a team with a winning record and their opponents have a combined record of 2-13 this season.
Both (4-0) Shelby and (3-0) Catholic are up 1 spot to #5 and #6 respectively. The 5th ranking by Shelby is their highest in program history in the FFN Top 10.

Vance is down 3 spots to #8 after their 41-34 defeat to South Pointe. The Cougars will have to put that behind them as they face an improved Independence back at Cougar Stadium on Friday.
Making their first appearance in the FFN Top 10 this season is the Monroe Red Hawks. They come in at #9 after an impressive 45-38 triple overtime win over previously ranked Weddington.
