It's been more than a month since the last Boston.com 100 poll was released and there's been considerable movement since then across the board.
East Bridgewater and Mashpee, both undefeated, jumped from the Nos. 65 and 66 spots to 28 and 30.
Bourne, also undefeated, moved up from No. 60 to No. 35.
On the outside of the Globe Top 20 looking in is No. 21 Xaverian, which fell from its perch at No. 11 last week after a 16-6 loss at No. 3 BC High -- the team's fourth loss of the year.
Wakefield (7-2), which has been in and out of the Top 20 all year and was ranked No. 20 last week, fell to No. 29 after losing to No. 26 Reading, 28-27.
For those paying attention to which teams are on the bus: Arlington Catholic (8-0) sits at No. 25, Pembroke (8-0) at No. 27, Blue Hills (9-0) at No. 37, Hamilton-Wenham (8-0) at No. 29 and Cathedral (9-0) at No. 43.
Traditional powerhouse Brockton (4-5) is No. 36. The Boxers have been shut out two weeks in a row, including a 26-0 defeat Friday to No. 9 Catholic Memorial.
The Bay State Conference features two teams sitting right outside the Top 20 in No. 22 Weymouth (7-2) and No. 23 Framingham (6-3). The Bay State is one of the particularly strong conferences this year, with Natick, Needham and Walpole all in the Top 20.
At No. 100 is Boston North's Madison Park, which is 5-2 overall.

Tim Daggett?) and Curry College graduate (a proud Colonel!), Larson is the sports editor for the Globe's regional sections: South, West and North, as well as a frequent contributor on the college beat.
