Golden Gates Conference
Three teams for two spots in the playoff picture...
Sonoma County, Sacramento, and CD Aguiluchos are looking to advance with a few weeks left and the margin is 7 among the three (23, 19, and 16). The Sol shut out San Francisco Stompers 4-0 and get Aguiluchos next- as they had the weekend off. Sacramento had Real San Jose on the schedule. Sacramento get San Fran this weekend.
Real San Jose, three points clear of the cellar, have the weekend off.
Spartans Futbol Club added another 8 goals to their coffers with an 8-1 win over Inter United FC. Spartans point total is now 31 and the goal difference is plus-34. Gorge FC shocked the conference with a 5-1 win at home against Seattle Sporting FC- good enough for their first win of the season.
This week, Spartans go to Seattle and Gorge host Inter. With another win, Gorge (5 points) can catch Inter United in the ladder.

Looks like FC Force have a chance of finishing with 40 regular season points if they beat San Diego Flash on the road this weekend. FC Hasental held Force to a 1-1 draw to put their point total at 28. Temecula FC tied Flash at threes to keep them at 28 as well.
Temecula host FC Santa Clarita and Del Rey City go to Hasental.
The Quails have been interesting as of late- at 13 points coming into the weekend.
