NPSL Official Logo 2016

In the Heartland, a lot of split weeks in the conference… Little Rock shut out FC Wichita, but they came back and knocked off Tulsa 2-1 mid-week. Here’s the KSN highlights…

Tulsa Athletic knocked off Demize 3-1 earlier in the week

and, then, Demize rebounded with a mid-week win over Ozark FC as did Dallas City FC.

This week, Ozark (0pts, 6th) hosts Little Rock (13pts, 1st) and Joplin (4pts, 5th). Wichita (13pts, 1st) hosts Demize and Tulsa (10pts, 3rd) hosts Dallas City (10pts, 3rd).

In the Lonestar, Dutch Lions had a 4-point week with a 6-3 win over Tyler FC

And a 2-2 draw with Regals. Regals also lost to Midland-Odessa, 2-0, while Vaqueros and Rafters had a goalless draw.

This week, Rafters (4pts, 5th) host Regals (8pts, 4th) and Tyler. Midland-Odessa (18pts, 1st) host Dutch Lions (14pts, 2nd) and Tyler (2pts, 6th) also host Vaqueros (13pts, 3rd).

In the Southeast, it’s a logjam with seven teams separated by 6 points.  The Atlanta Silverbacks had a bus break down on the way to Asheville, made it just in time, and shared points with ACSC. Here’s MST3K’s broadcast…

And Chattanooga FC is at a gaggle of teams at 13 points with two more wins. Here’s Mad Kemp’s look at the last-minute winner over Memphis City with Danny Reynolds

And, then, the completion of the suspended match from a month ago that ended up in a 5-0 win over Birmingham

Inter Nashville and New Orleans are at 13 points as well. Jesters drew at Memphis City

Knoxville Force (14pts, 2nd) also knocked off Birmingham, 3-2, and FC Carolina United beat the Georgia Revs, 3-1, at Queens.

This week, the biggest match is when Asheville (11pts, 6th) visits Atlanta. Chattanooga FC has FC Carolina United (5pts, 8th) visiting before a trip to Memphis City (10pts, 7th) mid-week. Knoxville hosts the Revs (3pts, 10th) and the Hammers (4pts, 9th) after their trip to Inter Nashville. And Memphis City visits New Orleans- weather permitting.

In the Sunshine, it’s still Miami Fusion (18pts, 1st) and Miami United (16pts, 2nd). Fusion beat Boca Raton, 4-2

Sportsmesh TV has the match

United beat Beaches, 3-1, and Sportsmesh was there as well…

Kraze United shut out Naples United FC as well. This week, Beaches (3pts, 6th) is at Jacksonville Armada (13pts, 3rd) and Naples United (0pts, 7th) mid-week. Miami Fusion hosts Kraze (12pts, 4th) and Miami United at Boca Raton FC (6pts, 5th).

Oscar Gets 8-Match Ban For Starting Foot-Brawl

And this was a big’un… as some folks say…

Take you to the Chinese Super League as Shanghai SIPG takes on Guangzhou R&F…

Watch #8 in red, you might remember him from his time at Chelsea…

From all that, Oscar gets an 8-match ban and a fine of a little more than 4600 British pounds… and the guy who shoved him to the ground got a 7-match ban…
