Three lopsided wins to start the season have landed Conestoga in the USA Today/United Soccer Coaches Super 25 poll for Week 2.

After being unranked to start the season, the Pioneers come in at No. 20 this week after 5-1, 8-1 and 6-2 wins over West Chester Henderson, Springfield and Great Valley.

Salesianum School moved up two spots to No. 3 after winning their first game of the season on Saturday 3-0 over Maryland school Walter Johnson.

Three other teams from the region received votes, including La Salle College (3-0-0), Appoquinimink (1-0-0) and Central Bucks West (2-0-0).

The Region III rankings include Conestoga at No. 3 and La Salle College at No. 4, followed by Central Bucks West (No. 6), Delran (No. 8), Elizabethtown (No. 9), Pennsbury (No. 10), Washington Township (No. 11), Parkland (No. 12) and Hershey (No. 15).

Hershey upset previously ranked Lower Dauphin, which after not losing all of last season, is 2-2-1 after losing to CD East on Monday.

Salesianum School tops the Region IV rankings while Appoquinimink is fourth.

On the girls side, Spring-Ford is still the only school from the region in the Top 25. The Rams (3-0-0) moved up one spot to No. 13. In the Region III rankings, Manheim Township (3-0-0) is fifth, Conestoga (2-0-1) is seventh, Cumberland Valley (3-0-0) eighth and Lower Dauphin (1-0-0) 11th.
