Summary

1 Lansing Ignite FC
(10-5-9)
Week 22: W, 4-1 NTX
Week 23: --

Last Week: 1
Ignite FC heads into a week off with one of the performances of the season under its belt and a top-two finish within its grasp.
2 Greenville Triumph SC
(8-6-7)
Week 22: T, 0-0 @TOR
Week 23: @MAD

Last Week: 2
Greenville’s undefeated streak reached five games, but only taking a draw against Toronto FC II means it will need to get something out of its trip to Madison on Wednesday.
3 Forward Madison FC
(9-8-5)
Week 22: W, 1-0 RIC
Week 23: GVL
1
Last Week: 4
Christian Diaz came through with the clutch goal to push the Flamingos into the playoff positions on Saturday. Victory against Triumph SC on Wednesday would be massive.
4 North Texas SC
(11-5-5)
Week 22: L, 1-4 @LAN
Week 23: TRM, TOR
1
Last Week: 3
North Texas still has the inside track on first place in the standings, but it can’t be looking forward to potentially facing Lansing Ignite again in the postseason after last Thursday’s drubbing.
5 FC Tucson
(7-7-7)
Week 22: W, 3-1 ORL
Week 23: CHT
1
Last Week: 6
Saturday’s win against Orlando was mandatory in Tucson’s bid for a playoff berth. If the hosts take all three points from Chattanooga, though, the playoff push is on for real.
6 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
(8-6-8)
Week 22: T, 1-1 @TRM
Week 23: @TUC
1
Last Week: 5
The Red Wolves have had a week to get ready for their trip west where victory against Tucson would be a major boost to their playoff hopes.
7 South Georgia Tormenta FC
(8-5-8)
Week 22: T, 1-1 CHT
Week 23: @NTX, RIC
1
Last Week: 8
Tormenta FC scored the opening goal for the first time in five games in its last outing. Repeating that, and breaking a five-game winless streak, when the side visits North Texas would be huge.
8 Richmond Kickers
(6-10-4)
Week 22: L, 0-1 @MAD
Week 23: @TRM
1
Last Week: 7
The Kickers couldn’t replicate their prior victory in Madison on Saturday, which means their playoff chances regressed back to slim.
9 Toronto FC II
(6-8-7)
Week 22: T, 0-0 GVL
Week 23: @NTX

Last Week: 9
Toronto’s last win came on July 12, and while it’s not completely out of the playoff race yet, time is running out as it heads to face North Texas on Sunday.
10 Orlando City B
(3-16-4)
Week 22: L, 1-3 @TUC
Week 23: --

Last Week: 10
It’s been since July 10 that OCB earned a point, let alone won a game.
