McLean Soccer was the first club to clinch a spot in the USL W League Playoffs after winning seven straight matches and outscoring opponents 22-5 in those seven matches. McLean has three matches left in the season – will the club be able to complete the perfect season?
Minnesota Aurora FC
Last Week: 3
Week 8: @ Chicago Dutch Lions
Minnesota Aurora FC has steadily moved up the Power Rankings all season. The club finds itself in the second-place spot after an impressive last home-stand. Aurora has three road matches to finish the season – including two matches against Green Bay Glory, who is the only team Minnesota has dropped points to all season.
Morris Elite SC
Last Week: 4
Week 8: @Cedar Stars
v. Long Island Rough Riders
Morris Elite SC is coming off a 5-0 victory over the weekend, making it the team’s sixth shutout of the season. Lauren Wrigley secured a brace in the affair, bringing her total goals scored to seven on the season. Morris Elite still have four matches to finish the season, with a huge regular season finale against Queensboro FC on July 9.
Greenville Liberty SC

Week 8: v. Asheville City SC
@ Charlotte Independence
Greenville Liberty SC dropped points for the first time in almost a month when the team played in a hard-fought draw against NC Courage U23. Still without a loss this season, Greenville has three matches remaining including one tonight, which with a win, could clinch a playoff spot.
Indy Eleven

Last Week: 5
Week 8: @ Detroit City FC
v. Kalamazoo FC
Indy Eleven did not have a match this weekend, but the club is still undefeated through nine. The team has only three matches left in the season including two against Detroit City. Katie Soderstrom and Madison Williams both have seven goals on the season for Indy.
Tampa Bay United

Last Week: 6
Week 8: v. FC Miami City
Tampa Bay United has been decisive in its last four matches, outscoring opponents 11-0. However, the team’s biggest hurdle lies ahead when Tampa hosts FC Miami City this Friday. The match will most likely decide who will be the winner of the Southeast Division. Tampa has only lost a single game all season and it was to FC Miami City – so this match up should be a good one.
