NPSL Week 7 Northeast Region Review/Preview

Keystone Conference

The team at the top will be trying to hold on for the balance of the schedule- FC Lehigh Valley United Sonic has a five-point lead (16-11) over the GBFC Thunder after Sonic's 2-1 win over Hershey FC and the scoreless draw Thunder had with Buxmont Torch.

Three points separate second from sixth in the table- Junior Lone Star has ten points after their tie with Clarkstown. Pocono Snow also knocked off Hershey FC for 9 points. Buxmont and Clarkstown are tied with 8. Hershey has 6 points for 7th and Electric City are last at 0-2-5 with two points.

Clarkstown knocked off Pocono 3-0 and Snow head coach Jerry Sheska talked about the turning point of the match afterwards in their fifth straight loss...

This week, Sonic can solidify their lead with home games against Junior Lone Star and Buxmont Torch. GBFC are on the road for two just-as-important road matches with Hershey and Pocono Snow.

The Snow are trying to look forward with Matt and Dan

Lone Star then go to Electric City and GBFC. Clarkstown go to Electric City and host Hershey in the middle of the table. Electric City finish their rough week with a home game in a week's time with FC Lehigh Valley.

Mid Atlantic Conference

It's all Virginia Beach FC and DC United's Under-23's- one point separates them (15-14) and DCU has a game in hand. VBFC beat ASA Charge and tied Legacy 76 while DCU knocked off Chesterfield United. The other four teams in the division are separated by four points- RVA FC blew out Legacy 8-1, but Legacy's second game of the week was another goalless draw with ASA to put them third with six points.

Legacy is 4th with 5 points. Chesterfield drew ASA after their loss to DC United for four points. ASA is still looking for their first win of the season.

This week, VBC FC goes to Chesterfield. DCU goes to Legacy and hosts ASA. RVA FC has two home games with Legacy and ASA.

North Atlantic Conference

It's still Red Bulls and Brooklyn Italians. Both still undefeated and the Italians have a game in hand, but this week's game with Red Bulls will go a long way to deciding the winner of the conference. It's one of three game this week for Brooklyn as they follow up with home games with the Phantoms and Rhode Island.

Red Bulls had the week off as Brooklyn beat NYAC. Seacoast United Phantoms won twice over the cross-town rival Mariners and Greater Lowell.

Here's the highlights of Lowell and Seacoast
((HT: Greater Lowell their own selves))

The four teams at the bottom are separated by three points total. NYAC followed their loss to Brooklyn with a draw at home to Rhode Island. The Reds host the Mariners and to Brooklyn. The Mariners beat Greater Lowell before their Phantoms loss and a GLUFC loss to the Mariners is in the mix as well.
