NPSL Southeast Week 2 Review/Preview: May 23-26

South Atlantic Conference

Upward Stars played twice, went 1-1 with a win over FC Carolina and a loss to Gate City, and they get the weekend off. Myrtle Beach Mutiny are second with a game in hand. Their tie with Carolina Railhawks under-23's gave the Hawks their first point of the year.

Myrtle Beach host Gate City this weekend who are a point back. The Railhawks and FC Carolina Discoveries are at the bottom of the table a point apart and get each other at WakeMed #2 Saturday night.

South Central Conference

OKC FC are set to play Joplin Demize this Saturday. OKC are 3-for-3 with 9 points and Joplin are in the group behind at 6. Here's highlights of the first match-up of the two that OKC FC won 1-0 back on the 16th in Joplin.
((HT: Gabriel Hershewe))

Four squads are at 6 points- Tulsa, Joplin, Corinthians, and Dallas City FC

Tulsa hasn't given up a goal all year and are +18 hosting Liverpool. Dallas City FC are set for their return match with BCS Clash- who gave up 13 in their first match-up a few weeks ago. One of the bright spots for DCFC has been Karhim Gattaz- who has one appearance and a hat trick as DC FC are +14 on the season.
((HT: Dallas City FC))

Corinthians are a +9 in goal difference and got 11 on the board themselves against BCS Clash in their 11-1 win.
Here's the highlights

And postgame with head coach Jon Burklo and CFC's Martin Hansson

Fort Worth played a murderous two-game roadie last week in Joplin and OKC, so they get the week off.

Southeast Conference

Nashville FC is at the top of the table after games against the Georgia Revolution and Silverbacks Reserves.
The Williamson Source has highlights from the second match

OSG Sports caught up with Nashville FC keeper Stephen Lunney:

"It was an amazing weekend. To be through 4 games and sitting top of the table with 10 points is a great position to be in but we know that there is plenty of work still to do. To play 2 games back-to-back and come out of both with wins shows the strength and depth of our squad. We must have used our entire active roster over the course of the weekend.

"Without doubt, the crowd that came out to support us in our inaugural home game was the major talking point of the weekend. To get over 1,800 fans (some of them owners) through the gates for the game was something special and something that I know the players and coaches really appreciated. Hopefully everybody liked what they saw and we can try surpass that figure when we take on Rocket City in Murfreesboro this Saturday."

Rocket City held on 2-1 over Pensacola City FC Friday night.
Here's how that game ended
((HT: Rocket City United))

Chattanooga FC is hanging out at the top of the standings with their New Orleans-Pensacola road trip behind them once and for all. Here's the Pensacola match-up from the Chattahooligans

The Silverbacks Reserves and Jesters play this weekend at Oak Park while the Chattahooligans go to Knoxville to play the Force. The Revs host Pensacola City FC

Sunshine Conference

This one is all Miami United so far as they're 4-for-4 and 7 points clear of Tampa. These two square off at Naimoli this weekend. Jacksonville, after their win over Cape Coral, get the weekend off.

Storm FC and Cape Coral battle at the bottom of the table this weekend.
Here's Storm FC getting their only point this season- their early season draw with Tampa
