NPSL Week 2 Midwest Review-Preview: May 23-26

Central Conference

The Minnesota United Reserves are on top after a home-and-home win and have both FC Bordo and the Quad City Eagles in hot pursuit two points back. Bordo had a draw and a loss in their Minnesota-based two-game road trip against United and Twin Stars. Understandably, Bordo have the week off as do Quad City.

The Twin Stars and Madison 56ers drew at 1 last week and the 56ers take on the last place Eau Claire Aris at Viterbo. Aris play for the first time since a 7-2 loss to Minnesota United Reserves back on the 18th.

Great Lakes East Conference

Two teams have points and two are struggling...

AFC Cleveland knocked off the Cincinnati Saints last week, 5-2, and they have their hands full this weekend with a crossover game with Westfield Select and a home game against Fort Pitt. FC Buffalo lost to Indiana Fire for their first loss of the season and the Fire take the top of the table because of it. FCB start a three-game home stand with a match against Erie Admirals Sunday.

Erie lost to Cincinnati 2-1 last week and host Lansing United before the trip to FCB.

Great Lakes West Conference

Westfield (or the Indiana Fire, whichever you prefer) continues their hot start- undefeated in their first four. But Detroit City FC have a game in hand and are only a point out of first after their 1-0 over Lansing United.

Press Row Sports caught up with DCFC manager Ben Pirmann

Lansing had a win-loss weekend that keeps them in third before they go to Erie Sunday. Cincinnati has a tough weekend with their home game against DCFC before a roadie to Michigan Stars. Stars need points as they're oh-for their first four and a minus-10.
