USL League Two Power Rankings: Week 10

By USL League Two Staff, 07/12/23, 5:15PM EDT







Chicago City SC

Last Week: 1
v. Chicago Dutch Lions FC
July 12 / 7:00 p.m. CT
No need to spend too much time here. They’re still perfect. Took care of business at home, and two games to go. They’ll play FC Wichita again, a team they took care of comfortably last week, and Chicago Dutch Lions FC, who sit second from bottom in the division.
Flint City Bucks

Last Week: 2
@ Lansing City Football
July 12 / 8:30 p.m. ET
The Bucks defense, anchored by Hugo Bacharach, is continuing to put the clamps on all of their opponents. Six clean sheets in ten matches now, and dates with Lansing City Football and Kalamazoo FC are all that stand between them and an undefeated season. After a run to the national semifinal match last year, the Bucks have to think they’re positioned even better now.
Long Island Rough Riders
Last Week: 4
v. New Jersey Copa FC
July 16 / 7:00 p.m. ET
A bump here for the complete domination of a very solid Manhattan SC side. Long Island are peaking at the right time, and have now scored 17 goals to only three conceded in the last four matches. Their divisional title is wrapped up, and now all eyes are on the playoffs.
Fort Wayne FC
Last Week: 3
Fort Wayne ended the season on an eight-match clean sheet streak. Their bump down isn’t their fault at all, they’ve been in fantastic form, and nobody in their division is close to them. It’ll be fascinating to see how they stack up against competition from other divisions, now that their season has wrapped up.
AHFC Royals

Last Week: 5
Another season wrapped up, another comfortable win for a top team. The Royals cruised to the finish line against AC Houston Sur, and now have four straight wins to close the year. The Southern Conference playoffs await.
Des Moines Menace

Last Week: 6
v. Peoria City
July 15 / 7:00 p.m. CT
Their 5-3 win over St. Charles FC to clinch a playoff spot was a worse defensive showing than they would’ve liked, but it was a rotated team the Menace put on the pitch. No Troutman, no Cupid, no Gameiro, and still five goals scored with three points on the board. With a playoff spot secured, the Menace are sure to be hoping for a third chance to knock Chicago City SC off their perch.
Monterey Bay FC 2

Last Week: 7
v. Project 51O
July 15 / 3:00 p.m. PT
Any points against Project 51O gives Monterey Bay F.C. 2 the Nor Cal divisional title in their first season, and it’s hard to overstate how impressive that is this season. Project 51O, SF Glens and SF City FC have all had quality seasons, and for the expansion side to be the best of the bunch is a feat to be celebrated. Now, though, the playoffs are in their sights as they try to grab the trophy in their first year.
Texas United
Last Week: 10
@ Blue Goose SC
July 15 / 7:00 p.m. CT
22 is a lot of goals. Scoring that many in one match is nearly unheard of. There’s certainly a large separation between the pair of Texas United and Little Rock Rangers and the rest of the Mid South Division. With the top spot in the division secured, Texas United can now focus on their potential opponents from the other Southern Conference divisions in the playoffs.
Ballard FC
Last Week: 11
@ Capital FC Atletico
July 12 / 7:00 p.m. PT
Northwest Division title in hand, Ballard FC may be back on the right track, but they’ll want to close out Capital FC Atletico and United PDX to be in the form they want to be in come playoff time. It’s been a rough month for the Bridges.
Thunder Bay Chill
last Week: 9
v. Bavarian United SC
July 12 / 7:00 p.m. ET
An untimely draw with Minneapolis City SC put their divisional title celebrations on hold briefly, but any points against Bavarian United SC sees them go into the playoffs as the Deep North’s first-place representative. Though their eight-match winning streak may be snapped, they’re still unbeaten through their last nine, and hold all the cards for the division.
Ventura County Fusion
Last Week: 8
@ Redlands FC
July 15 / 7:00 p.m. PT
A loss to Southern California Seahorses after they went down to ten men on the road puts their divisional title hopes on hold as well – Even though a playoff spot is secured, their match against Redlands FC on July 15th could be for the division, if Redlands are able to defeat Southern California Seahorses on Wednesday.
Asheville City SC

Not Ranked
v. North Alabama SC
July 15 / 7:30 p.m. ET
Like last week, Asheville City SC and South Carolina United are matching each other stride for stride. They split the season series. Asheville defeated a slightly better opponent during the last match week. It all comes down to one more match for both teams, and Asheville has a one-goal advantage on their neighbors to the south.
San Francisco Glens
Last Week: 12
@ San Francisco City FC
July 15 / 6:00 p.m. PT
The Glens got their revenge on Marin FC Legends last week, but the damage was already done. They have a spot in the playoffs, but their race for a divisional title looks bleak. They need Monterey Bay F.C. 2 to lose both games, and need to win over the goal differential battle, which currently rests with MBFC2.
Seacoast United Phantoms

Not Ranked
@ Boston Bolts
July 15 / 7:00 p.m. ET
The three best teams in the Northeast Division continue to go around in circles, and right now, it’s Seacoast United sitting on top by a single point. Western Mass Pioneers earned a critical advantage in the playoff hunt, and now, it’s only one more win for the Phantoms against Boston Bolts to secure that coveted divisional title.
South Carolina United FC

Last Week: 15
@ Southern Soccer Academy
July 15 / 7:30 p.m. ET
In the same situation as the Blues. 9-1-1, and in great form. Can they win by enough goals to take the advantage in the division? The last weekend of the season will be a thrilling one in the South Central Division.
