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.
