League One Power Rankings - Week 21

By ETHAN TRIEBSCH -, 08/23/22, 12:15PM EDT


Top two spots remain unchanged following busy Week 21

Greenville Triumph SC and Chattanooga Red Wolves SC each pick up a vital Week 21 win to maintain their momentum at the top of the Power Rankings. Union Omaha and Forward Madison FC continue their steady rise as the end of the season nears.

Despite recording a draw against Richmond, Fuego FC sees the biggest rise thanks to a drop from the teams above them in last week's rankings. Tormenta FC drops two spots after losing its third consecutive match.

Biggest Movers






1 Greenville Triumph SC
Week 21: W @ TUC

Last Week: 1
Average Ranking: 5
Tucson was hungry for three points on Saturday, but Greenville rose to the occasion and converted the winning goal early in the second half to extend its lead at the top of the table.
2 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
Week 21: W v. TRM

Last Week: 2
Average Ranking: 4
The Red Wolves increased their unbeaten streak to seven with a comeback victory against Tormenta FC on Saturday. We’ll soon get a good idea of who this team really is with an upcoming four-match slate that features a quartet of clubs above the playoff line.
3 Union Omaha
Week 21: W v. CLT, W v. NC
Last Week: 4
Average Ranking: 5
Omaha set a club record with 11 consecutive unbeaten matches thanks to a six-point Week 21. The Owls are sitting pretty with two matches in hand on both Greenville and Richmond.
4 Richmond Kickers
Week 21: T @ CV
Last Week: 3
Average Ranking: 3
After three consecutive victories, the Kickers have picked up one point in their past two matches. A stoppage-time equalizer against Fuego FC was a good way to avoid back-to-back losses.
5 Forward Madison FC
Week 21: W @ NCO
Last Week: 6
Average Ranking: 7
The ‘Mingos got their first win in six matches thanks to a late Jeremiah Streng brace and Hailstorm implosion in Colorado.
6 Charlotte Independence
Week 21: L @ OMA
Last Week: 5
Average Ranking: 6
The Jacks conceded their first loss in five matches as Omaha came back from a one-goal deficit to take all three points last Wednesday. Charlotte seems to be trending in the right direction after a mid-season slump.
7 Central Valley Fuego FC
Week 21: T v. RIC
Last Week: 9
Average Ranking: 5
Starting the season on fire, Fuego FC has cooled off significantly as its inaugural season has progressed. Conceding a two-goal advantage against the Kickers must feel like a loss.
8 Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC
Week 21: L v. TUC, L v. MAD

Last Week: 8
Average Ranking: 9
Northern Colorado picked up losses against Tucson and Madison and set a league record for most red cards in a single match with three against the ‘Mingos. Not ideal.
9 South Georgia Tormenta FC
Week 21: L @ CHA
Last Week: 7
Average Ranking: 6
Three consecutive losses by a margin of seven goals to one is never a good thing. Dropping three points against Chattanooga hurts the South Georgia playoff push.
10 FC Tucson
Week 21: W @ NCO, L v. GVL
Last Week: 11
Average Ranking: 10
It was an overall positive week for FC Tucson as the side claimed a win over Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC and nearly earned a point against top-of-the-table Greenville Triumph SC on Saturday.
11 North Carolina FC
Week 21: L @ OMA
Last Week: 10
Average Ranking: 6
It’s been a brutal stretch for NCFC over the last few months with just one win in its last 10 matches. A 4-1 thumping at the hands of Omaha was embarrassing.
