The Kentucky High School Girls' Soccer Coaches Association released its latest poll this week. The biggest adjustment is Sacred Heart reclaiming the No. 1 spot after Owensboro Catholic suffered its first loss last week.

Assumption, now fourth in the rankings, defeated OCath 4-1 on Saturday. It ended the Aces' nine-game win streak to start the year. The Rockets were also responsible for OCath's only regular-season loss last season, too.

Lexington Catholic (10-2-1) remained in the three spot. The Knights failed to earn a rematch with Sacred Heart, who they lost to in the opener, after losing to Notre Dame in the semifinals of the Lady Knights Challenge Cup on Thursday.

The Pandas (9-3) will instead meet the Valkyries (8-3) in the championship. The two Louisville powers weren't scheduled to meet in the regular season.

Tates Creek (7-6) and Paul Dunbar (5-6-1) stayed in the 14th and 15th spots, respectively. Henry Clay (4-4-2) dropped one spot to No. 17.

Other area teams in the poll: Boyle County (No. 6), West Jessamine (No. 8), Woodford County (No. 13).
