Madison takes top spot going into the playoffs after its impressive road victory

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 Forward Madison FC
Week 28: W, 1-0 @LAN
Semifinals: @NTX
Last Week: 3
The Flamingos came through with a clutch road performance to seal their place in the playoffs against Lansing. Can they do the same thing this Saturday in North Texas?
2 North Texas SC
Week 28: W, 3-1 @TUC
Semifinals: MAD
Last Week: 5
NTSC’s season-ending victory showed it back to its best ahead of the playoffs, even without its Golden Boot winner. Now the chance to take postseason glory arrives.
3 Lansing Ignite FC
Week 28: L, 0-1 MAD
Semifinals: GVL
Last Week: 1
Lansing had to have been nervous when Greenville took the lead Saturday night, but they’ll get a chance at redemption in front of their home fans in the Semifinals.
4 Greenville Triumph SC
Week 28: L, 1-3 @TRM
Semifinals: @LAN
Last Week: 2
Back-to-back defeats were not the way Triumph SC would have hoped to enter the playoffs, especially after letting a chance at the No. 2 slip away on Saturday night.
5 South Georgia Tormenta FC
Week 28: W, 3-1 GVL
Last Week: 10
It might be little consolation to not being in the playoffs but pulling out a win against your biggest rival to end Year 1 had to feel good in the moment for Tormenta FC.
6 Toronto FC II
Week 28: W, 2-1 @RIC, T, 1-1 @CHT

Last Week: 6
Ten points from the final five games of the season saw TFC II’s kick for the playoffs arrive too late, but there’s potential to build on here.
7 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
Week 28: T, 1-1 TOR
Last Week: 4
The Red Wolves knew the playoffs were out of reach before they kicked off against Toronto but were unable to treat their fans to one final home win in 2019.
8 Richmond Kickers
Week 28: L, 1-2 TOR, W, 2-0 ORL
Last Week: 7
Braeden Troyer walked into the sunset after 128 league games over five seasons for the Kickers and got to depart a winner thanks to the Kickers’ victory against Orlando.
9 Orlando City B
Week 28: L, 0-2 @RIC

Last Week: 9
Finishing with half the points of the ninth-place finisher is definitely not the end to the season OCB had envisioned when this all kicked off in March.
10 FC Tucson
Week 28: L, 1-3 NTX
Last Week: 8
Tucson was the lone League One side to not take a victory after September 1 having entered the month with a shot at the postseason.
