Golden Gates Conference
Three teams separated by four points- Sacramento, Sonoma County, and CD Aguiluchos (20, 19, and 16). Real San Jose are fourth at 11 points with the San Francisco Stompers last with 8.
Sacramento had the week off, but they host San Jose this weekend. Sonoma drew RSJ last week and they will host San Francisco. CD Aguiluchos beat San Fran last week and they're the ones who get the week off this time around.
Still Spartans Futbol Club running away with it- a 2-1 win over Gorge FC gives them 28 points and they host Inter United FC who are third. Seattle Sporting FC beat Inter last week and they travel to Gorge this time. Sporting are ten points back in second. Inter have 8 points on the season and Gorge have only 2.
This is one of the most competitive conferences in the league this season...
But, it's looking more and more like FC Force will take it- having pulled 12 wins out of their first 13 matches. They have a 9-point advantage over both San Diego Flash and FC Hasental.
Force blew out FC Santa Clarita 5-3 last week and travel to third-place Hasental this week.
But the biggest news came from Hasental's 2-1 win over Flash to draw square at 27 points. This offsides call kept the Flash off the board late and kept all three points with FCH.

Here are the highlights in full
((HT: San Diego Flash their own selves))
And, thanks to FOSG "BSP" for the link to the Hasental highlights
Now, the math...
The Flash has won 2 of the 3 matches this season against Hasental, but have less wins. Hasental will face league leader FC Force and finish the season against winless Del Rey City. The Flash travel to FC Temecula and finish the season at home against FC Force.
Temecula blew out Del Rey City 6-1 to distance themselves from FC Santa Clarita (12 points to 7) and this week, FCSC and Del Rey will battle at the bottom of the table.
