The first 16 teams in the MaxLaxLA Top 25 remained identical to last week’s voting, but there were two teams making moves in the bottom half of the rankings.

At the top, Redondo Union still is a unanimous No. 1, receiving all 18 first-place votes, followed by Westlake, Palos Verdes, Glendale and Crescenta Valley filling out the Top 5.

The only two changes in the rankings occurred in the bottom half of the Top 25, where Dos Pueblos moved up one to No. 17 after winning its 10th game in a row, a 9-6 victory over Cate School. Dos Pueblos’ move up pushed Cate down one to No. 18.

Further down, the biggest move in the poll was Culver City, which jumped from No. 23 to No. 20 after winning three times last week to improve to 10-3 overall. One of the wins was against No. 14 Mira Costa.

With a big week of games this week, there still is the possibility for movement in the final coaches poll, which will be taken after the conclusion of Friday’s games and in time to be used in the playoff selection discussion.

Here is the complete MaxLaxLA Top 25 after Week 8:
