Summary

1 Long Island Rough Riders
(5-0-1)
Week 6: v. NY(T), v. FCM
The Rough Riders have come out of their corner swinging in the 2021 Path2Pro season, recording a 5-0-1 record in six games played this season. The team currently looks like the one to beat in the Metropolitan Division having only given up one goal in the six games it has played, tied for the fewest conceded in the league so far thanks to the clutch hands of Josh Levine.
2 Des Moines Menace
(5-0-0)
Week 6: v. KAW
The Menace completed a perfect May with a victory against Green Bay Voyageurs FC and currently sits with a 5-0-0 record in addition to scoring 11 goals on the season, five of which can be attributed to striker Kingsford Adjei. The club has also seen success in the defensive half as the Menace keepers have only conceded three goals in five games.
3 Chicago FC United
(4-0-0)
Week 6: v. KAW(W), @ SLSG
Although only four games into its season, Chicago FC United has put up a stunning performance in the 2021 season remaining undefeated going into next week with a 4-0-0 record. On top of that, the team has managed to net 12 goals in four games and only concede one, which is a testament to the offensive firepower coming out of Chicago.
4 Ocean City Nor'Easters
(5-0-1)
Week 6: @ PLS(W), v. NVF
The Nor’Easters are the lone undefeated side remaining in the traditionally strong Mid Atlantic Division with 17 goals in six games, with forward Simon Becher having notched six of those. They may be in second place now, but the Nor’Easters have already defeated West Chester United and have two games in hand on the division leaders.
5 The Villages SC
(3-0-1)
Week 6: v. FES
The 2019 Southeast Division title winners have made another strong start with three wins out of four in an undefeated start. The squad has a big run of four contests in 12 days starting on Saturday with a game against second-place Florida Elite SA. A win could separate them from the pack if things go right.
6 North Carolina Fusion U23
(6-1-0)
Week 6: v. VBU
The Fusion squad is no stranger to the back of the net as it had scored the most goals so far in the 2021 season with 27 goals, netting five in its last game against Wake FC. The win over Wake FC allowed the Fusion to nudge their way to the top of the South Atlantic Division table. In addition, the side has only conceded five goals in seven games, making them the team to beat in its division.
7 SC United Bantams
(5-0-2)
Week 6: @ SSA(W), v. SSA
The SC United Bantams remain undefeated as the team enters Week 6 of Path2Pro having completed exactly half of its season. With only seven games left to play, the Bantams have yet to face South Georgia Tormenta 2, the second-placed team in the division. If the Bantams can manage to clinch a win against Tormenta, they may have a nice pathway to remain at the top of the Deep South Division table.
8 Mississippi Brilla FC
(4-0-2)
Week 6: v. LRR(W), @ TEX
Another undefeated squad, Mississippi Brilla FC currently boasts a 4-0-2 record in the 2021 season. The team has recorded 14 goals in six games with four goals belonging to forward Ciro Damine. Having already defeated Houston FC, the second-placed team in the Mid South Division, in a 5-2 win, Mississippi Brilla looks to have a pretty comfortable handle on the top spot in its division.
9 West Chester United
(6-1-1)
Week 6: @ RDG
West Chester United has made an impressive run in the start of the 2021 season netting 20 goals and only conceding four in eight games played thanks to starting keeper Dane Jacomen. The side's single loss of the season came in a matchup against the historic Ocean City Nor’Easters, who currently place second in the Mid Atlantic Division but have games in hand on United in first. West Chester could help neutralize that advantage as it faces the Nor’Easters again in Week 7 with hopes of leveling the season series against the undefeated New Jersey-based club.
10 West Virginia United
(5-1-1)
Week 6: @ TRI(L), v. NC
West Virginia United has been a consistent frontrunner this season with players like Nicolas Molina and Grant Michaels leading the offensive charge. The club has managed to slot home 13 goals in seven games with Molina claiming six of those goals. However, the club’s recent loss to the Tri-Cities Otters and the tough opponents that lie ahead could threaten its standing in the South Atlantic Division table.
11 Flint City Bucks
(3-0-2)
Week 6: @ GRA(T), v. KHR
The historic Flint City Bucks are continuing their trend of one of the most competitive clubs in the Great Lakes Division, although some League Two newcomers have made it difficult for them to push to the top of the standings so far. The club still remains undefeated in the five games they have played so far, but the Bucks have some big challenges coming up as they face division-leader Kalamazoo FC in the coming week.
12 Cedar Stars Rush
(4-1-1)
Week 6: v. NJC(T), @ FAE
Cedar Stars Rush is making a splash in the 2021 season after placing in the middle of the table two years ago. The club has undoubtedly benefited from the addition of players such as Zemedkun Rodriguez, who has netted five goals this season, and Ethan Koehler, who has been a brick wall between the sticks only conceding one goal in 270 minutes of play. Currently sitting second in the Metropolitan Division standings, the club has yet to face the undefeated Long Island Rough Riders.
13 Florida Elite SA
(3-0-1)
Week 6: v. VIL
Florida Elite SA is making its run for a comeback season in 2021 after a middle of the table finish in 2019. With a 4-1-0 record, the club’s only loss was to Southeast Division leader The Villages SC. If Florida Elite can manage to turn the tables and take victory in its upcoming game against The Villages, the side may manage to climb to the number one spot in the standings.
14 Western Mass Pioneers
(4-1-1)
Week 6: v. ACC
The 2019 Northeast Division title winners are well on the way to another winning season as it is currently second in the standings. With a 4-1-1 record, the club’s only defeat came in the first week of Path2Pro play when they fell short in a 4-0 loss to the Boston Bolts. However, the club is currently boasting a three-game winning streak, which may give them the momentum to make a return to the postseason.
15 Ogden City FC
(1-0-0)
Week 6: v. PCR
With only one playoff spot up for grabs in the Mountain Division, Ogden City SC has its sights set on the division title. The club is very early in its season having only played one match so far against Colorado Rush, but the side took a 2-1 victory against the current division leaders. While the side faces Park City Red Wolves SC on Saturday, the future meetings with the Rush look likely to determine which team will be playoff-bound.
