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.
Tampa Bay Rowdies (↔): Won at home against an Ottawa side that's been in good form.
Indy Eleven (↑1): Pushing Tampa Bay for the top spot with a 3-0 win over Birmingham and a 1-1 draw with Louisville City.
NYRB II (↓1): Drew 1-1 with a 10 man Charleston side. Their midweek match against Nashville was abandoned while they were trailing 2-1 at the half.
North Carolina FC (↑1): Got a good 1-0 win at home over Nashville.
Nashville SC (↓1): Were up 2-1 over New York when the Wednesday night match was abandoned. Went on the road to North Carolina and lost 1-0 to drop into 5th.
Pittsburgh Riverhounds (↔): Beat Birmingham 4-1 at home. They've scored 12 goals in their last three matches and are one of the hottest sides in the league.
Ottawa Fury FC (↔): Beat Charleston 3-2 midweek before losing at Tampa Bay.
Louisville City FC (↔): Got a decent 1-1 draw with Indy Eleven to stay in 8th.
Charleston Battery (↔): Lost to Ottawa and drew with New York for a somewhat disappointing week.
Saint Louis FC (↔): Their free fall continues, losing 2-1 to Swope Park. They're in danger of slipping out of a playoff spot.
Loudoun United FC (↔): Won 2-1 over Atlanta. They could start to sneak up the table with a home-heavy second half of their season.
Bethlehem Steel (↔): Beat Hartford 3-0 on the road, not necessarily an easy feat.
Charlotte Independence (↔): Beat Memphis 1-0 in a somewhat predictable result.
Memphis 901 FC (↔): Lost to Charlotte without scoring a goal. Their 12 goals scored is last in either conference, and is killing their chances to be a competitive side.
Swope Park Rangers (↑1): Got a surprising 2-1 win over Saint Louis to move up a spot.
Atlanta United 2 (↓1): Lost to a fairly decent Loudoun side.
Birmingham Legion FC (↔): Lost to Birmingham and Indy to challenge Hartford for the last spot in the East.
