NPSL Southeast Region Week 5 Review/Preview

South Atlantic Conference

Six points separate top from bottom- which translates to two wins from anybody.

Upward Stars are on top after a 4-1 win over FC Carolina Discoveries and they start a two-week home and home with Myrtle Beach Mutiny. Myrtle Beach lost to the Railhawks Under 23's for their first three pointer of the season. That draws them up to third adding a draw with Gate City FC into the mix.

Gate City have 4 points in fourth and host Discoveries this weekend.

South Central Conference

Two wins over Joplin in a home-and-home by a total of 8-1 put Tulsa Athletics on top with 15 points and a GD of plus-26.

Tulsa has a home-and-home against OKC FC this weekend. They're two points back after a 4-3 shootout win over Liverpool Warriors. Dallas City FC are next in third- tied with Corinthians with 9 points and one of their hot goal scorers is Moises Orozco with 12 markers in his first four matches.

They host DCFC this weekend. Joplin get BCS Clash this weekend while Liverpool Warriors, at four points and 1-1-4, have the weekend off. Fort Worth Vaqueros have an away match with DCFC as well.

BCS Clash have only scored one goal this season while giving up 60 in five matches.

Southeast Conference

This is one of the tightest division battles at the top with Nashville FC ahead by only 1 point (11 total). But New Orleans had their way with Nashville 5-1 last weekend.

"Bad day at the office," goalkeeper Stephen Lunney told OSG Sports. "We weren't good enough at either end of the pitch, and that cost us dearly. We have already moved on and are looking forward to a massive weekend with 2 home games, back-to-back."

Chattanooga and New Orleans visit this weekend... and they're one point back. Chattanooga follows their Nashville match with a game against the Georgia Revs. The Jesters visit Rocket City before their match in Nashville. The Atlanta Silverbacks Reserves are on top after a 93rd minute goal against the Georgia Revolution in Conyers Tuesday night for a 2-1 win. The Revs have their chance at points this weekend at Knoxville FC.

Pensacola is still Pensacola and we'll have updates on that situation as we go.

Sunshine Conference

It's all Miami United- five wins in their first six matches. Miami knocked off Tampa Marauders 3-0 last weekend and get the time off. Jacksonville United had a 6-point weekend as well with a win over Tampa and a win at Storm FC. Tampa host Storm this weekend in a battle for third.

Cape Coral drew Storm for a point, but get to travel to Jacksonville this weekend as well for a tough road test.
