By Staff, 04/01/19, 5:15PM EDT


Where does everyone stack up after the opening weekend of action?

The 2019 USL League One Power Rankings are compiled each week by staff writers John Arlia and Nicholas Murray. Check back every Monday during the regular season to see who’s hot, and who’s not, as the first season in the league’s history progresses.






1 North Texas SC
Week 1: W, 3-2 CHT
Week 2: --
We were expecting Ricardo Pepi to be good, but a hat trick on your professional debut? That’s really something.
2 South Georgia Tormenta FC
Week 1: W, 1-0 GVL
Week 2: TUC, @RIC
There was some pressure on the hosts to deliver in the inaugural game. They and Alex Morrell did just that.
3 Lansing Ignite FC
Week 1: W, 3-2 @RIC
Week 2: @GVL
Picking up three goals on the road as well as a first win in Richmond was a great start for Head Coach Nate Miller’s crew.
4 FC Tucson
Week 1: W, 3-1 @ORL
Week 2: @TRM
Ideal start to the season in Orlando and now they get a great midweek showdown with Tormenta FC.
5 Forward Madison FC
Week 1: --
Week 2: @CHT
The results in preseason have been solid. Let’s see how that translates in Chattanooga this Saturday.
6 Toronto FC II
Week 1: --
Week 2: @ORL
TFC II will have taken plenty of notes on Orlando’s loss on Saturday ahead of their opening game of the season.
7 Richmond Kickers
Week 1: L, 2-3 LAN
Week 2: TRM
They came up short but there were positives to take from the Kickers’ fightback against Lansing.
8 Greenville Triumph SC
Week 1: L, 0-1 @TRM
Week 2: LAN
There was a lot to like overall, but a lack of end product let Greenville down in the end.
9 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
Week 1: L, 2-3 @NTX
Week 2: MAD
For a back line with this much experience, it was surprising to see the nervous errors it made against North Texas.
10 Orlando City B
Week 1: L, 1-3 TUC
Week 2: TOR
Going down to 10 men is never easy, even less so when you’re already trailing what looked like a superior opponent.
