Marshfield, Sisters No. 1; GP, North rated
Marshfield remained unbeaten and kept its No. — ranking and two Southern Oregon Conference teams cracked the top 10 in Class 4A high school football poll.
Marshfield received seven of 15 first-place votes and 141 points in balloting by sports writers and broadcasters from around the state.
While Roseburg of the SOC remained No. 3, Grants Pass moved in at No. 8 and North Medford at No. 9.
Marshfield is 3-0 after a 49-23 victory over Springfield. It was the Pirates' 48th straight regular-season win and their 46th straight in the Midwestern League.
The Pirates haven't lost a regular-season game since a 28-7 loss to Grants Pass on Nov. 5, 1993.
Jesuit got five top votes, one more than last week, and 137 points to remain second.
Jesuit (3-0) got 156 rushing yards from Austin Hauth to down Beaverton 16-0.
Roseburg remained No. — with a 55-6 rout of Klamath Union, Tigard remained No. 4 after knocking off No. 10 Tualatin, and Churchill moved up two spots to No. 5 with a 74-0 trouncing of South Eugene.
The 4A poll is jumbled from there, as five of the bottom six teams lost. That cleared the way for three other new teams to enter the rankings: West Linn (No. 6), Gresham (7) and McKay (tie for No. 10).
The top three teams in 3A kept their places after winning their games by a combined score of 141-40. Sisters stayed No. — with 11 of 13 first-place votes, followed by Junction City and Ontario. Estacada, the only 4-0 team in 3A, moved from No. 6 to No. 4 after a 54-7 rout of Newport. Sweet Home was No. 5.
Marist, Henley and Mazama all broke into the top 10 after improving to 3-0.
