The second installment of the Missouri high school soccer polls features little love for Kansas City teams. In fact, no area team is ranked among the top four in any of the three classes.

That could change, of course. The season hasn't quite reached its halfway point yet.

A key matchup lingers Thursday, when Lee's Summit West travels to Park Hill. The Titans defeated Park Hill 2-1 in overtime earlier this season.

Team records are at the time of the vote, which was conducted Sept. 26.
