Biggest Movers






1 North Carolina FC
Week 11: --

Last Week: 1
If not for a trio of goals in the span of 14 minutes on Wednesday, NCFC would have been dealing with three consecutive losses. Instead, the league leaders earn three points from two Week 10 matches to remain ahead of the pack.
2 Charlotte Independence
Week 11: v. CHA

Last Week: 2
In a satisfying Week 10 victory, the Independence downed their Dogwood Derby rivals with a comeback victory over NCFC on Sunday. While they can end the week level on points with NCFC, the Jacks will have to wait two weeks to potentially overtake rival North Carolina in the standings.
3 Richmond Kickers
Week 11: @ TRM

Last Week: 3
The Kickers are one of three clubs that score more and concede less than expected. Despite picking up just three out of six points on the week, the Kickers are easily the most efficient scoring team in the league. 
4 Union Omaha
Week 11: v. GVL, MAD
Last Week: 5
The Owls have only lost once in their last five but have picked up just one win in that span as well. Overall, though, the group is solid; Omaha lead the league in passing accuracy and is second in average possession.
5 One Knoxville SC
Week 11: @ LEX
Last Week: 9
Knoxville had the best week of the bunch, claiming six points with a pair of victories. While the side has lost just once in its last five, Knoxville does maintain the worst scoring efficiency in the league.
6 Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC
Week 11: v. CV
Last Week: 8
The Hailstorm halted Madison’s unbeaten streak with a strong 2-0 victory on the road. While operating with the smallest sample size in the league, Northern Colorado maintains the second-best points-per-game mark in the league (1.83).
7 Forward Madison FC
Week 11: @ OMA
Last Week: 4
Madison’s club-record unbeaten streak may have come to an end, but Bernd Schipmann has been a revelation in goal for the ‘Mingos as FMFC have allowed a league-low 0.57 goals per match thanks to the German shot-stopper.
8 South Georgia Tormenta FC
Week 11: v. RIC
Last Week: 6
The only team yet to record a draw, Tormenta FC is now 0-5-0 when its opponent finds the back of the net with its four victories coming when the Ibis defense records a clean sheet.
9 Greenville Triumph SC
Week 11: @ OMA
Last Week: 7
Triumph SC has scored the second-most goals across the league (13) but has conceded a joint-high 14 at the same time.
10 Chattanooga Red Wolves SC
Week 11: v. CLT
Last Week: 11
Still dealing with a post-League One Final hangover, the Red Wolves have succeeded in clawing back to earn results; Chattanooga leads the league with seven points gained from losing positions.
11 Lexington SC
Week 11: v. KNX
Last Week: 10
If Lexington retained the leads it held through its first eight matches, LSC would be in fourth place in the table rather than 11th. The expansion side needs a result against Knoxville this weekend.
12 Central Valley Fuego FC
Week 11: @ NCO

Last Week: 12
Still clearly at the bottom of the Power Rankings, Fuego FC has a chance to spoil the Hailstorm’s home opener and jump as high as seventh place with a win on Saturday.
