NPSL Week 9 Midwest Region Review/Preview

Central Conference

The top five teams are only separated by 8 points. Quad Cities are on top with 16 that included a 2-1 win over FC Bordo last week. Madison 56ers are only one point back at 15 after their 2-1 win over Minnesota TwinStars. Minnesota United Reserves are 3rd at 10 after their win over Eau Claire and TwinStars put 7 on Aris the next night- Aris are still winless this season.

This week, Quad Cities hosts United Reserves. TwinStars play at FC Bordo and Quad Cities. Eau Claire have the weekend off.
