NPSL Northeast Region Review/Preview: Week 5

Keystone Conference

FC Lehigh Valley United Sonic, GBFC Thunder, and Junior Lone Star are 1-2-3, but keep an eye on Buxmont Torch- who are undefeated in their first two matches.

FC LVU had a win last week against Junior Lone Star and a draw with Clarkstown to be on top at 13 points. GBFC beat Pocono Snow for three points (10 total). Buxmont, Hershey FC, and Pocono are all with 6 points with Clarkstown and Electric Shock in behind.

This week, FC LVU hosts Hershey. GBFC is at Buxmont after Torch's match with Electric City. Junior Lone Star is at Clarkstown. Pocono Snow hosts Clarkstown and goes to Hershey over the weekend.

Mid-Atlantic Conference

Virginia Beach City and DC United's Under-23's are distancing themselves even further from the rest- both at 11 points and identical 3-2-0 records. VBC's goal difference is three more than DCU.

The two played to a scoreless draw over the weekend and now VBC gets ASA Charge and hosts Legacy 76. United is at Chesterfield United. RVA beat Legacy Tuesday night 8-1 for three big points to move into fourth. Legacy and Chesterfield all have 3 points and all are 1-0-2. Chesterfield has two games- their second is with cellar-dwelling ASA Charge who lost to RVA FC a week ago.

North Atlantic Conference

It's all Red Bulls Under-23 right now. 7 games, 7 wins, and the plus-37 goal difference (39-2)- two more wins including a 9-1 win over Rhode Island. Brooklyn are second with 5 wins- two last weekend over the two Seacoast squads outscoring them 8-2 in the process.

The Phantoms are third and only 5 points separate them from the bottom of the table. They split their weekend with a loss to Brooklyn and a win versus NYAC. NYAC went 0-1-2 last week splitting with the Seacoasts and losing to Red Bulls.

GLUFC and Rhode Island each have three points- the Reds getting their first win of the season a 5-1 win over Greater Lowell.
((HT: GLUFC their own selves))

The Mariners went 0-1-1 last week and have their first point of the season.

This week, Red Bulls have the weekend off while the Italians host NYAC. The Phantoms have back-to-back road contest with the Mariners and GLUFC. NYAC plays Rhode Island the day after their game with Brooklyn. Greater Lowell go to the Mariners and host the Phantoms.
