Quad Cities is ahead and the group behind seems to taking good pieces of each other...
The Eagles lead is 5 over Madison (20-15) while FC Bordo (11) and the Minnesota squads TwinStars (9) and United Reserves (also 11) are all within reach of one another for the home stretch. Eau Claire Aris are still looking for their first win of the season.
Last week, QC pulled out 4 points against the Minnesotans while Madison watched. TwinStars lost to FC Bordo and Quad Cities while United reserves drew the conference leaders. Aris also had the weekend off.
This week, QC are at United. Madison also travel there. Aris also travel to TwinStars.
The Eagles did a little behind the scenes thing to let us know how they hold up before games
((HT: QC Eagles))
Great Lakes East Conference
This is one of the most fun conferences to pay attention to all season long...
Four teams now separated by five points... AFC Cleveland (15), Fort Pitt Regiment (14), Erie Admirals (11), and FC Buffalo (10)
Last week, AFCC beat FCB but lost at Erie. Fort Pitt lost a crossover match with Indiana Fire, but beat Cincinnati. FC Buffalo also lost to Lansing United, 2-1.
Here are those highlights
((HT: Lansing United their ownselves))
This week, Erie hosts Buffalo but then travels to Cleveland. Fort Pitt also goes to Buffalo Sunday.
Great Lakes West Conference
Another scramble, but in two separate groups...
Indiana Fire are a point ahead of Le Rouge (21-20) with Lansing at 18. Then, Cincinnati and Michigan are paired at 9 points heading into the weekend.
After beating Fort Pitt, Indiana lost 4-0 at DCFC.
Here's goal number two for DCFC, a spectacular free kick
((HT: Sam Raffa))
Michigan was idle.
This week, Indiana are off and Detroit City can make some serous moves with a game at Michigan before a home game with Cincinnati. Lansing does the reverse- hosting Cincinnati before heading to Michigan.
