Franklin Regional is considered one of the top 50 boys high school soccer teams in the country.

TopDrawerSoccer.com, a reputable nationwide website that follows and rates college, high school and club soccer, has the Panthers at No. 45 in its latest fall national rankings.

Franklin Regional (15-0-1), the likely No. 1 seed in the WPIAL Class 3A playoffs — the brackets come out Wednesday — has allowed just three goals while posting 13 shutouts.

The defending WPIAL champion Panthers have not lost in 38 consecutive regular season games.

The Panthers also check in at No. 4 in TopDrawer’s Mid-Atlantic Region rankings and are No. 2 in the state behind Lower Merion.

Other WPIAL teams also made the rankings. The Mars girls are No. 4 in the Mid-Atlantic Region and No. 8 in the state, ahead of Norwin (10), Peters Township (11) and Moon (13).

The Plum boys are No. 8 in the region and No. 4 in the state.
