League One Power Rankings - Week 25

By ETHAN TRIEBSCH -, 09/20/22, 1:00PM EDT


Trio of teams nearing postseason

With only a few weeks remaining in the regular season, the Richmond Kickers are exactly where they want to be after four-point Week 25. Challenging the Kickers at the top are Omaha and Greenville followed closely by Chattanooga and South Georgia.

Forward Madison FC drops a pair of spots for the second consecutive week after a disappointing loss to North Carolina FC in stoppage time.

Biggest Movers






1 Richmond Kickers
Week 25: W @ OMA, T @ CHA

Last Week: 1
Average Ranking: 2
The Kickers are first in line to claim a playoff spot following a one-win, one-draw week in which both contests were deciding near the end of the action.
2 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
Week 25: T v. RIC
Last Week: 3
Average Ranking: 4
A late equalizer against the league leaders after going down a man was impressive from an exciting Red Wolves side.
3 Union Omaha
Week 25: L v. RIC, T v. GVL
Last Week: 2
Average Ranking: 5
Omaha dropped five points from a winning position this week in what was an overall disappointing pair of matches.
4 Greenville Triumph SC
Week 25: T @ OMA

Last Week: 4
Average Ranking: 5
Like Chattanooga, Greenville somehow rallied from being down a pair of players to earn and then convert a penalty kick in stoppage time.
5 South Georgia Tormenta FC
Week 25: T v. TUC

Last Week: 5
Average Ranking: 6
Tormenta FC’s potential last-ever victory at Erk Russell Park was cancelled out by a late Tucson equalizer in a match the hosts would’ve like to earn three points from.
6 Charlotte Independence
Week 25: W @ CV
Last Week: 7
Average Ranking: 6
Although above the playoff line, the Jacks do not possess a magic number just yet. Back-to-back impressive victories should help the playoff push, though.
7 Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC
Week 25: ---
Last Week: 6
Average Ranking: 8
Sitting out last week, the Hailstorm will face the third toughest schedule remaining in their final four fixtures.
8 FC Tucson
Week 25: T @ TRM
Last Week: 9
Average Ranking: 10
Tucson is easily enjoying its best run of form this season with a three-match unbeaten streak. The only thing holding it back is its league-low 24 points.
9 Central Valley Fuego FC
Week 25: L v. CLT
Last Week: 10
Average Ranking: 6
Fuego FC’s playoff hopes are slipping away as it continues to struggle with its offensive production.
10 Forward Madison FC
Week 25: L v. NC
Last Week: 8
Average Ranking: 7
Riding the league’s longest losing and winless streaks, Forward Madison FC’s recent run of form may be enough to keep the side out of the playoffs for the third consecutive season.
11 North Carolina FC
Week 25: W @ TRM

Last Week: 11
Average Ranking: 7
NCFC picked up a win against Madison to snap its winless streak. North Carolina will need to make the most of its six matches remaining if it wants to challenge for a playoff position.
