2 North Texas SC
(5-0-1)
Week 8: T, 2-2 @LAN
Week 9: MAD
1
Last Week: 1
That was one impressive fightback in Lansing and Ricardo Pepi continues to show why he’s such a highly-touted talent.
3 Greenville Triumph SC
(3-3-2)
Week 8: W, 1-0 RIC
Week 9: @CHT
2
Last Week: 5
Greenville is above the playoff line thanks to Jake Keegan’s goal against Richmond and has a chance to kick on against struggling Chattanooga on Saturday.

Week 8: L, 0-1 @GVL
Week 9: @ORL
1
Last Week: 3
The Kickers couldn’t find a repeat performance of their previous trip to Greenville but are still well-set standings-wise ahead of their visit to Orlando.

(2-3-2)
Week 8: L, 0-1 TRM
Week 9: @NTX
1
Last Week: 4
The Flamingos couldn’t continue their undefeated streak against Tormenta FC and slide a bit as a result.
6 Lansing Ignite FC
(2-3-3)
Week 8: T, 2-2 NTX
Week 9: @TRM

Last Week: 6
Ignite FC will feel as though it let three points slip against North Texas and is now winless in its last five league games.
7 FC Tucson
(3-3-1)
Week 8: W, 4-0 CHT
Week 9: @TOR
2
Last Week: 9
Was that four-goal outburst the performance that’s going to kickstart Tucson’s season? It at least moved the side within shouting range of the top four.
8 Orlando City B
(1-5-2)
Week 8: W, 2-0 TOR
Week 9: RIC
2
Last Week: 10
Orlando was excellent value for its first victory of the season on Friday, but it will get a bigger test from the visiting Kickers on Wednesday night.
9 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
(2-4-2)
Week 8: L, 0-4 @TUC
Week 9: GVL
1
Last Week: 8
The Red Wolves’ road struggles continued on Saturday night in Tucson, but back-to-back home games against Greenville and Toronto could spark a turnaround.
10 Toronto FC II
(2-3-1)
Week 8: L, 0-2 @ORL
Week 9: TUC
3
Last Week: 7
A three-game losing streak isn’t the way Toronto FC II wanted to enter its home opener, especially with visiting Tucson letting rip in its last outing.
