Delaney: 9 area teams in state soccer poll

The weekly state soccer poll is out and nine area teams are ranked, including two schools that has its boys and girls in the poll.
Mohawk and Hamilton Central have that honor. The Mohawk boys remain undefeated and are sixth in Class C. The Mohawk girls are 15th. In Class D, the Hamilton girls are undefeated and ranked seventh. The Emerald Knights boys team, with one loss, is 14th.
The other area teams in the rankings are: Clinton girls (seventh in Class B); and Remsen (14th in Class D). On the boys side, it's Mount Markham (15th in Class B); Cooperstown (15th in Class C); and state runner-up and three-time defending Section III Class D champ Poland (5th in Class D).
Chazy, the team that defeated Poland in the state finals last year, is ranked No. 1 in boys Class D.

There needs to be an impartial representative to watch the performance / actions of these teams and the referees which we pay good money to. In several of these teams cases there have been incidents of dishonest play that has led to a great record. Lets clean up this sport!

Bill's point is well taken, especially with the referee's. The TVL this year has seen atrocious officiating allowing many games to get out of hand, or giving one team a significant advantage in a game. The Utica Soccer Board needs to clean up it's act and get fit and qualified officials on the field.
