Power Rankings Week 22

This method of ranking team performance factors in point per game, strength of schedule, and goal difference. This isn't an attempt to predict the final table, but rather a way to measure a team's form.

EASTERN CONFERENCE

  1. NYRB II (↔): Won 2-0 over Saint Louis to hold onto the top spot.

  2. Tampa Bay Rowdies (↔): Went to Charleston and won 5-0 to gain a lot of ground on New York. They've only lost twice in 22 matches.

  3. Pittsburgh Riverhounds (↑1): Who would've thought that Pittsburgh would have one of the best attacks in the East? Beat Memphis 4-0 to bring their total to 38 goals scored.

  4. Nashville SC (↓1): Went to Swope Park and cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win.

  5. Indy Eleven (↑1): Went to North Carolina and ground out a 2-1 win to move up a spot.

  6. North Carolina FC (↓1): Lost 2-1 to a really good Indy Eleven side. They still look like one of the top sides in the East.

  7. Ottawa Fury FC (↔): Drew 0-0 at home with a struggling Birmingham side.

  8. Louisville City FC (↔): Luke Spencer's late winner over Charlotte slowed their fall, but they still have lots of issues to work through.

  9. Saint Louis FC (↑1): Lost 2-0 in New York, but Charleston's drop sees them move up a spot.

  10. Charleston Battery (↓1): Lost 5-0 at home to Tampa Bay. They've had moments where they've looked like a top-tier side, but at this point they look like they'll hover right around the playoff line.

  11. Charlotte Independence (↑1): Lost 1-0 to Louisville, but move up a spot as other results went their way.

  12. Loudoun United FC (↓1): Beaten 4-2 by Atlanta, one of the worst teams in the league. They've shown flashes of being a playoff-calibre team, but they're incredibly inconsistent. They have games in hand on everyone in the East, but have to put together some consistent results to have a shot at the playoffs.

  13. Memphis 901 FC (↔): Beaten 4-0 in Pittsburgh. The addition of Liam Doyle could help a lot of their issues in defense.

  14. Bethlehem Steel (↔): Beaten 3-0 at home by Hartford. Their rating took a hit but they had enough of a cushion to stay in 14th.

  15. Birmingham Legion FC (↔): Went to Ottawa and held on for a 0-0 draw.

  16. Swope Park Rangers (↔): Lost at home to Nashville.

  17. Hartford Athletic (↔): Went to Hartford and won 3-0.

  18. Atlanta United 2 (↔): Beat Loudoun 4-2 at home, but it wasn't enough to pull them out of last place.

WESTERN CONFERENCE

  1. Phoenix Rising FC (↔): They've won 12 straight. That says it all.

  2. Reno 1868 FC (↔): Beat RGV Toros 2-1 on the road to keep hold of the no. 2 spot.

  3. Fresno FC (↔): Held on at home against Las Vegas. The gap between the top three and the rest of the league is pretty significant.

  4. New Mexico United (↑3): They've had a bit of a resurgence over the last couple weeks, moving into fourth with a win over El Paso and a draw against Austin.

  5. Sacramento Republic FC (↔): Beat San Antonio 3-2 on the road to stay in 5th.

  6. Real Monarchs SLC (↓2): Drop two spots after scraping by Colorado Springs for a 1-0 win.

  7. Portland Timbers 2 (↓1): Their match this week was postponed.

  8. San Antonio FC (↔): Lost 3-2 at home to Sacramento.

  9. Austin Bold FC (↑1): Held on for a draw against New Mexico to move up a spot.

  10. Orange County SC (↑1): No match this week.

  11. El Paso Locomotive FC (↓2): Lost midweek to New Mexico before their weekend match was postponed after the tragedy in El Paso.

  12. Las Vegas Lights FC (↔): Went down a man in the first half against Fresno and lost 2-1.

  13. OKC Energy (↔): Drew 1-1 at home with Tulsa.

  14. Rio Grande Valley FC (↔): Lost 2-1 at home to Reno.

  15. LA Galaxy II (↔): Kept things close, but fell 3-2 to Phoenix.

  16. Tulsa Roughnecks FC (↔): Drew 1-1 with 10 man OKC Energy.

  17. CS Switchbacks FC (↔): Lost 1-0 to Real Monarchs.

  18. Tacoma Defiance (↔): No match this week.
