2. (2) Reservoir (4-1-1 county, 5-1-2 overall)

The Gators had one game this week, like much of the other county teams, but their one win was one of their most impressive of the year, as they handed Glenelg its first loss of the season with a 3-0 rout of the up-start Gladiators. In the victory, Reservoir tallied its sixth shutout of the year – and it did so without its first-team all-county goalkeeper, Janie Romer – as junior Juli Hancock and senior Emily Rowell played well in relief. The Gators continue to dominate in the midfield, but against the Gladiators they finally saw the benefits with one of their best offensive outings of the season. Seniors Leah Simmons, Kylie Toler and Madi Pepe all scored in the outing, with sophomores Blair Vant Hoff and Kate Hyde picking up assists. If Reservoir can continue its offensive production, combined with its fantastic defense, the Gators will be a scary team to face down the stretch. Up next: Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Long Reach.
