Summary

1 Greenville Triumph SC
(8-6-5)
Week 20: W, 3-1 @TOR
Week 21: MAD
1
Last Week: 2
Greenville is just below the playoff line for now, but with four wins in its last five games that could change quickly. Big game with Madison at home on Saturday.
2 Lansing Ignite FC
(8-5-9)
Week 20: --
Week 21: @ORL
1
Last Week: 3
Lansing should be happy with this weekend’s results, which kept it in second place and saw North Texas fail to create a serious gap at the top of the standings.
3 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
(8-5-7)
Week 20: W, 2-1 @TRM
Week 21: NTX
1
Last Week: 4
The Red Wolves have a top-two finish in their sights after defeating South Georgia and would pull within a point of North Texas at the top if they can earn victory on Saturday.
4 Forward Madison FC
(8-8-4)
Week 20: L, 0-1 RIC
Week 21: @GVL
3
Last Week: 1
Madison’s loss to Richmond saw the Flamingos slide back below the playoff line, which makes Saturday’s trip to Greenville a crucial contest.
5 North Texas SC
(10-4-5)
Week 20: T, 1-1 TUC
Week 21: @CHT

Last Week: 5
North Texas found the net just in time to earn a point against Tucson but is still winless in its last four outings overall as it heads back to Chattanooga, which is undefeated at home this season.
6 FC Tucson
(6-7-6)
Week 20: T, 1-1 @NTX
Week 21: --
1
Last Week: 7
The gap to the playoff positions is now six points after FCT failed to hold its lead against North Texas, but Saturday brings the end of the club’s six-game road trip before a home-heavy end to the season.
7 Richmond Kickers
(6-9-3)
Week 20: W, 1-0 @MAD
Week 21: TOR
1
Last Week: 8
Three consecutive victories, including a road win against a Madison side that was on a good streak of its own, makes it a nine-point gap to the playoff positions. The Kickers couldn’t pull this off, could they?
8 South Georgia Tormenta FC
(8-5-6)
Week 20: L, 2-1 CHT
Week 21: --
2
Last Week: 6
Tormenta FC is still above the playoffs line, but it feels like Saturday’s game with FC Tucson is a must-win if only to boost the club’s spirits ahead of the final stretch.
9 Toronto FC II
(6-8-5)
Week 20: L, 1-3 GVL
Week 21: @RIC

Last Week: 9
TFC II was 4-0-3 with a +8-goal differential at home through July 19. Since then it’s gone 0-3-0 and conceded nine goals in the process to make playoff contention a longshot.
10 Orlando City B
(3-14-4)
Week 20: --
Week 21: LAN

Last Week: 10
OCB got the week off, which all things considered was probably for the best. Lansing visits on Friday night.
