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.

Biggest Movers






1 Lansing Ignite FC
Week 21: W, 2-1 @ORL
Week 22: NTX
Last Week: 2
Lansing’s weekend went about as well as it could, first defeating OCB on Friday night and then seeing no-one but North Texas win on Saturday.
2 Greenville Triumph SC
Week 21: T, 0-0 MAD
Week 22: @TOR
Last Week: 1
With a game in hand on Chattanooga, Triumph SC’s road to the playoffs is in its own hands but it will be disappointed not to have recorded more than one shot on goal against Madison.
3 North Texas SC
Week 21: W, 2-0 @CHT
Week 22: @LAN
Last Week: 5
Firmly back on top of the standings after handing the Red Wolves their first home loss, NTSC will be thrilled to see Ronaldo Damus back on the scoresheet after his injury.
4 Forward Madison FC
Week 21: T, 0-0 @GVL
Week 22: RIC

Last Week: 4
A road point in Greenville wasn’t a bad result, but it will put more pressure on the Flamingos’ upcoming three-game home stand that sees Triumph SC and Tormenta FC among the visitors.
5 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
Week 21: L, 0-2 NTX
Week 22: @TRM
Last Week: 3
The Red Wolves are still above the playoff line, and despite their loss to North Texas on Saturday the club’s playoff fate is still mathematically in its hands thanks to its games in hand on Lansing.
6 FC Tucson
Week 21: T, 1-1 @TRM
Week 22: ORL

Last Week: 6
Seven games at home out of eight games remaining with a six-point margin to make up on the playoff places. Saturday’s game against OCB is the first of a few must-wins for Tucson down the stretch.
7 Richmond Kickers
Week 21: T, 2-2 TOR
Week 22: @MAD

Last Week: 7
Richmond’s players might be kicking themselves after letting a two-goal lead slip against Toronto FC II, especially given the rest of the weekend’s results.
8 South Georgia Tormenta FC
Week 21: T, 1-1 TUC
Week 22: CHT

Last Week: 8
Tormenta FC’s late goal to earn a point against Tucson was a major boost ahead of another crucial contest on Wednesday night against Chattanooga Red Wolves SC.
9 Toronto FC II
Week 21: T, 2-2 @RIC
Week 22: GVL

Last Week: 9
TFC II showed some real fortitude in rallying for a draw against the Kickers, but the playoff places remain distant with a seven-point gap to make up in the final eight games of the season.
10 Orlando City B
Week 21: L, 1-2 LAN
Week 22: @TUC

Last Week: 10
Orlando’s mathematical elimination from playoff contention is likely to arrive this week before it kicks off on the road against FC Tucson late on Saturday night.
