1. West Islip (8-1-1)
With some help from Massapequa, who defeated top ranked South Side 4-0, West Islip now sits atop the Long Island girls soccer power rankings. Two days after leading the defending Class AA Long Island champions to a 3-2 win over Smithtown West by scoring the winner in overtime, Nikki Perniciaro recorded a hat trick in a 6-0 win over Newfield.
