Summary

1 Lansing Ignite FC
(10-5-9)
Week 23: --
Week 24: @TUC

Last Week: 1
Ignite saw its chances at a first-place finish drop a little thanks to North Texas’ big week, but a home semifinal is still at hand for the side as it returns to action this week.
2 Greenville Triumph SC
(9-6-7)
Week 23: W, 1-0 @MAD
Week 24: @RIC

Last Week: 2
Greenville not only took the victory it needed in Madison, but then saw the rest of the weekend’s results go very favorably for its playoff chances.
3 North Texas SC
(13-5-5)
Week 23: W, 5-0 TRM, W, 2-0 TOR
Week 24: @ORL
1
Last Week: 4
Two wins on the week means a five-point lead with a game in hand on Lansing for first place. Hard to see NTSC dropping from the top spot now.
4 FC Tucson
(8-7-7)
Week 23: W, 1-0 CHT
Week 24: LAN
1
Last Week: 5
Jordan Jones has scored in four consecutive games and has given Tucson legitimate reason for hope a playoff berth can be earned as it continues its homestand this weekend.
5 Forward Madison FC
(9-9-5)
Week 23: L, 0-1 GVL
Week 24: TRM
2
Last Week: 3
Madison sits fourth in the standings when it comes to maximum available points, but the loss to Greenville and Tucson’s win has put the pressure on the Flamingos.
6 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
(8-7-8)
Week 23: L, 0-1 @TUC
Week 24: @TOR

Last Week: 6
The Red Wolves’ run of three games without a win couldn’t have come at a worse moment. A response is sorely needed on the road against Toronto on Friday.
7 Richmond Kickers
(7-10-4)
Week 23: W, 4-1 @TRM
Week 24: GVL
1
Last Week: 8
The Kickers romped past Tormenta FC thanks to Joe Gallardo and Dennis Chin but are going to need much more where that came from to get into the playoff picture.
8 South Georgia Tormenta FC
(8-7-8)
Week 23: L, 0-5 @NTX, L, 1-4 RIC
Week 24: @MAD
1
Last Week: 7
The numbers say Tormenta FC is still right in this playoff race. The formbook does not agree at all.
9 Toronto FC II
(6-9-7)
Week 23: L, 0-2 @NTX
Week 24: CHT

Last Week: 9
Closing in on two months without a victory, TFC II likely can’t make the playoffs anymore, but it’s going to have a lot of teams rooting for it against Chattanooga on Friday.
10 Orlando City B
(3-16-4)
Week 23: --
Week 24: NTX

Last Week: 10
OCB got a week off to prepare for a visit from North Texas on Friday night, but it’s still going to be a massive challenge to break this losing streak.
