There are no unbeaten teams left standing in the PDL following Zest FC's impressive 2-1 result against FC Tucson at Kino North Stadium. Across North America, teams clinched playoff spots in Week 10. Burlingame Dragons FC, the Western Mass Pioneers and the GPS Portland Phoenix are just a few of the teams who will take part in the 2016 PDL playoffs.
Here are some of the results from Week 10 that stood out:
FC Tucson 1, San Diego Zest FC 2: Tucson had the opportunity to clinch the Southwest Division title at home over the weekend, but Zest FC had other plans. Spectacular goals by Matthew Hurlow-Paonessa and Manuel Carrillo handed Zest FC the road result, and the California-based club now sits just three points behind Tucson with one game remaining.
Calgary Foothills FC 1, Sounders FC U23 0: Dominic Russo scored the game-winner – assisted by Ajeej Sarkaria – for Foothills FC, which draws level with the Sounders U23 on points with 24 this campaign. The Canadian side has two matches remaining, including one against the Sounders U23, to finish out its regular season. The winner of Friday's match will clinch the Northwest Division title.
The Villages SC 4, Floridians F.C. 1: Carlos Vitor Alvarenga, Kyle Nelson, William Pereira and Carlos Araujo each scored a goal in the convincing win. The Villages SC now sits atop the Southeast Division with two games remaining in the regular season, including a road contest against Floridians F.C. on Wednesday. The Villages SC can clinch a playoff spot with a tie in its next match.
