The pollsters for Class B kept the top three teams intact with Miesville at No. 1, Chanhassen at No. 2 and Moorhead at No. 3 despite the top two teams losing their first games of the season.

The Mudhens dropped a Memorial Day matchup with rival Red Wing 3-0 in Red Wing but have  won five straight including a pivotal 2-0 victory Section 1B foe Dundas. Miesville has a big week in front of it with matchups against section rivals Elko Friday and Northfield Sunday.

The Red Birds lost to a surging Beaudreau’s squad 4-3 at the Stearns County Classic but that’s been the lone blemish thus far.

The Brewers have played just four games, two of them exhibition games but are 4-0 in those games.

The rest of the poll saw a lot of movement with Cold Spring rising a spot to No. 4, displacing Dundas, which sunk to No. 8. Blaine moved up a spot to No. 5 in the latest poll and Northfield followed the Fusion up the ranking to No. 6.

Beaudreau’s climbed into the top 10 after beating both Chanhassen and Cold Spring. The Saints come in ranked No. 7.

Chaska dropped a spot to No. 9 and Shakopee crept in at No. 10 this time as Elko and Sauk Rapids got bumped from the top 10.
