NPSL Official Logo 2016

In the Heartland, last week Ozark FC (6pts, 6th SEASON COMPLETE)  jumped up again and bit someone. This time, it was Little Rock just as FC Wichita beat Demize

and Tulsa Athletic beat Dallas City FC.

This week,  the last week of the regular season has FC Wichita (22pts, 1st) hosting Dallas City. Tulsa Athletic (13pts, 4th) hosts Little Rock (16pts, 2nd) and Dallas City (13pts, 3rd) hosts Demize (7pts, 5th) for the last match of the season.

In the Lone Star, Shreveport Rafters had a split week- winning against Tyler FC and losing at Dutch Lions.

Houston Regals also lost at home to Fort Worth Vaqueros.

This week, Tyler (2pts, 6th) is at Midland-Odessa (18pts, 2nd) and hosts Vaqueros. Rafters (10pts, 4th) also host Dutch Lions (20pts, 1st) and Vaqueros (16pts, 3rd) host Regals (8pts, 5th).

In the Southeast, 7 teams are chasing six spots and it will come down to the last day of the regular season to decide Tuesday’s playoff locations. Last week, New Orleans won at the Silverbacks

and at home against Inter Nashville to clinch the west. Memphis City stayed in step with a win at Birmingham as CFC split their week with a big 7-0 over the Georgia Revolution and a 2-1 loss at home against Inter. The point of contention for CFC fans was this goal in the 65th that was reversed. Mad Kemp has the look at the turning point.

Asheville City drew in a water slide of a match with FCCU at ones. Here’s MST3K on the call…

Knoxville Force also won in the week with a win over the Revs. Above and Beyond has the highlights

This week, the East is decided with Knoxville, the Silverbacks, and Asheville City in. The Revs (3pts, 10th) play at the Silverbacks (17pts, 5th) and Asheville City (15pts, 7th) hosts Inter Nashville. If Atlanta wins, they’re the two-seed. If Asheville wins and get some Revs help, they’re the two-seed. Knoxville (23pts, 2nd) awaits the winner. And they’re at Memphis City (16pts, 6th).

In the west, Chattanooga FC (19pts, 3rd) needs a point against FC Carolina United (6pts, 8th) to go in and eliminate Memphis City. Inter Nashville (19pts, 4th) is brought back into the discussion for the 2 and 3-seed with some help. New Orleans Jesters (25pts, 1st) are the top in the west and host Birmingham (5pts, 9th).

In the Sunshine, it’s still Miami United and Fusion as the one and two. Last week, Fusion won twice (27pts, 1st)- 6-0 over Boca Raton. Here’s Sportsmesh’s look…

and 1-0 over Naples. Miami United also beat Naples 3-0. Sportsmesh tv has the highlights again…

Naples, however, did get a 2-2 draw with Beaches

and Kraze brought Jacksonville Armada U23 to the pack with as 4-2 win.

This week is the next to last week in the regular season and starts with Kraze (15pts, 3rd) hosting Boca and Beaches. Boca (6pts, 5th) also has some mid-week action hosting Naples and Beaches (5pts, 6th) Wednesday. The Armada (14pts, 4th) host United (22pts, 2nd) and Naples (4pts, 7th) host Fusion Saturday night.

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.

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

NPSL Official Logo 2016

In the South Conference, this is where we think some of the most competitive soccer will be played all spring and summer…

Starting in the Southeast, it’s crowded and there’s a lot of offense on the table…

There are six teams separated by six points. Atlanta Silverbacks are on top with 9 points, then the gaggle breaks in. Inter Nashville, Knoxville, and Asheville City are at 8. New Orleans Jesters are at 7. Chattanooga FC are at 5. Birmingham Hammers are at 4, Memphis City have 3, FC Carolina United have 2 and the Georgia Revolution have 1 point.

Last week, Atlanta shut out Knoxville before the Force put 5 on FCCU. Esportesnet has the highlights…

Scruffy City Syndicate has the five-spot from Sansom. FCCU lost the sandwich game in their week, 3-2, to Asheville City.

Inter Nashville and Memphis City had a scoreless draw and the Jesters beat the Revs, 1-0.

This week, Silverbacks are at FCCU and Knoxville. Inter Nashville host Asheville and New Orleans. Memphis City hosts Birmingham before going to Asheville. The Revs host Chattanooga FC Saturday before CFC’s Thursday match in Birmingham.

In the Lonestar, it’s still Midland-Odessa and Vaqueros at 9 points. Houston Regals are next at 4. Tyler FC have 2, Dutch Lions 1, and the Shreveport Rafters are looking for their first points.

Last week, Midland-Odessa beat Vaqueros, 2-1…

And had a feature done on them by the folks over at Inside View

Tyler and Dutch Lions drew at 2 and the Lions have the highlights there…

This week, Midland-Odessa goes to Vaqueros and Tyler FC. Lions host Regals and Tyler hosts the Rafters.

The Heartland is still a big jumble with five teams within five points of each other. Little Rock Rangers are at 9 points with FC Wichita at 7 points, Tulsa Athletic at 6, Dallas City at 4, and Joplin’s Demize at 4 points. Ozark FC is still looking for their first positive result of the season.

Last week, Rangers beat Dallas City and drew Demize. Demize also beat Tulsa and Dallas City. FC Wichita also beat Ozark FC. This week, Ozark hosts Dallas City and Tulsa host Wichita.

Finally in the Sunshine, it’s still the two Miami franchises and everyone else. United leads Fusion by 3 points (12-9). Armada U-23 and Boca Raton FC are at 6. Beaches and Kraze United are at 3 points and Naples United have lost their first four matches.

Last week, Miami United beat Beaches 1-0. Sportsmesh tv has the match…

NPSL Official Logo 2016

Finishing up in the Southern Region, the Heartland Conference is putting up some big numbers out of the blocks. First stop: Tulsa Athletic where they put up 9 goals in their match with Ozark FC

Little Rock Rangers and FC Wichita got full points as well with wins over Demize and Dallas City FC. Here’s the action from Wichita…

This week, Dallas City goes to Little Rock and Joplin. Rangers visit Demize on June 1st. Demize start their week hosting Tulsa. FC Wichita hosts Ozark Saturday night as well.

The Lonestar Conference has two undefeated sides for starters- Fort Worth Vaqueros (9 points) and Midland-Odessa FC (6 points). Vaqueros beat Dutch Lions and Shreveport Rafters this week. Midland-Odessa also beat Rafters mid-week. Here’s the match…

One of the best save sequences of the week came from the goalless draw between Tyler FC and Houston Regals. Watch Tyler’s Eric Mozzo, thanks to Eric his own self…

This week, a big early-season match as Vaqueros go to Midland-Odessa and Tyler host Dutch Lions.

The Southeast will be one of the most competitive conferences this season. And the top of the ladder is a first-year team in Inter Nashville. Inter beat Memphis City 3-0 last week and stay on top. The Atlanta Silverbacks are second and lost in the division to New Orleans Jesters.

Chattanooga FC is one of the three sides tied at 5 points- as they were leading Birmingham 1-0 when lightning hit the area in and around Fort Finley and called the match- rescheduled for June 20. But the team had an awesome assist on the National Anthem. Mad Kemp has the video

And went to Memphis, for a part of the Volunteer Derby, and drew at nil

But, probably, the save sequence of the week goes here from Memphis City the goalkeeper at the 6:06 mark off the PK and rebound. Mad Kemp has it as well…

Knoxville Force played a home and home with Asheville City SC and got four points- drawing at ones in Asheville on a 94th minute PK

But came back to win at home 3-2, thanks to the Scruffy City Syndicate, for the match

The Georgia Revolution and FC Carolina United also drew at twos. Above and Beyond has the highlights of that match…

This week, Atlanta hosts Knoxville before the Force return home for a Tuesday match with FCCU. New Orleans host the Revs, Memphis City hosts Inter Nashville and FCCU hosts Asheville City.

In the Sunshine Conference,  the biggest move was by Miami Fusion as they beat Miami United, 5-2, to draw within three points of the conference leaders. Sportsmesh tv has the match from south Florida.

Armada U-23 shut out Naples 3-0 and Beaches FC shut out Kraze United, 2-0, to get their first win of the season. Sportsmesh was there as well…

This week, Beaches host Miami United. Naples host Boca and Armada host Fusion.
