Latest top 10 rankings: Oct. 6 edition

  1. Monroe-Woodbury (4-1): It’s a familiar storyline. The contender (Middletown) gets a shot at the champion (Monroe-Woodbury) on Friday night. Does the champ take one on the chin or deal a convincing knockout?
  2. Cornwall (5-0): Imagine if Cornwall played Red Hook? Kidding. Cornwall has put up 60 points on Goshen and Monticello in consecutive weeks. Next up? New Paltz. Look for a convincing Cornwall win, but I don’t see the Green Dragons putting up 60.
  3. Newburgh (3-2): I expected Anthony Dubose to run wild in his return last week and he did, putting up 182 yards on just six carries, in a 62-7 win over Valley Central. Just in case Newburgh needed more depth at running back, a newcomer, Ranshawn Keys, put up 94 yards and two scores.
  4. Wallkill (4-1):  Just call him “The Pick Six Kid.” Wallkill defensive back Connor Lee has returned an interception for a touchdown two straight weeks.
  5. Warwick (5-0): Washingtonville fell out of the rankings this week and, more importantly, Warwick can bounce the Wizards from playoff contention officially with a win this week.
  6. Minisink Valley (4-1): Would be a good fit in the NFC North, being that the Warriors are tough, workmanlike with a blue-collar, bring your lunch pail to work type of mentality.
  7. Middletown (4-1): Coming into the season, never thought Monroe-Woodbury at Middletown in week six would have been the game of the week. This is one of the biggest games the Middies have played in two decades.
  8. Roosevelt (4-1): Lost its first game to Warwick last week, but will remain a real tough out in Class AA Division II.
  9. Marlboro (3-2): Marlboro and Burke Catholic have been quick rivals. Let’s just hope the Iron Dukes don’t try outdoing Burke when it plays Red Hook this weekend. The Eagles put up 77 points on Red Hook last week.
  10.  Burke Catholic (5-0): The Eagles have landed, in the rankings. Burke Catholic is playing like a well-oiled machine.
