Aug 21, 17, 08:35 AM #136I find it pretty interesting and surprised I have really heard or seen more about it out there.
Thank you for your interpretation of everything.Advertisement
Aug 24, 17, 07:02 AM #137FCC picked up a much needed 3 points with a 3-1 win over Ottawa last night.
Aug 24, 17, 07:25 AM #138Louisville rolls again. 5-0 over Harrisburg.
That's 20 goals over the last six games. City now tied with Charlotte at the top of the table with two games in hand.
Tough run-in remains with games against Charlotte, Charleston, and two games against Rochester.
Aug 24, 17, 07:26 AM #139#1 in the East ain't bad... Gotta finish strong.
Aug 24, 17, 09:24 AM #140Starting left wing back Kyle Smith started his three game suspension last night. Really foolish shove in the dying moments of last weekend's game against Bethlehem.
Didn't matter last night but he's been a huge part of the offense in this 3-4-3 formation O'Connor has hit on this season. We'll see what O'Connor comes up with in the two tougher games of this suspension period.
Aug 29, 17, 09:57 AM #141Massive game scheduled for this weekend because the USL and USSF don't believe in observing the international break. Louisville and Charleston, Nos. 1 and 3 in the East, will play without major portions of their squads.
Charleston's leading scorer Romario Williams was called into the Jamaican team.
Louisville's Speedy Williams was also called to Jamaica and Mark-Anthony Kaye was called into the Canadian National team to play against Jamaica.
Sep 25, 17, 08:18 AM #142Less than a month left in the season. Teams have still played anywhere between 27 and 29 games, so here are the current Eastern Conference playoff matchups using points per game standings.
1) Louisville City FC 55/28/1.96
8) NY Red Bull II 38/28/1.36
4) Charleston Battery 47/29/1.62
5) Rochester Rhinos 43/28/1.54
3) Tampa Bay Rowdies 44/27/1.63
6) Bethlehem Steel 38/27/1.40
2) Charlotte Independence 48/29/1.65
7) FC Cincinnati 40/29/1.37
Sep 25, 17, 08:25 AM #143Louisville also in contention for the leading point total for the season.
1) Real Monarchs 57/28/2.04
2) Louisville City FC 55/28/1.96
3) Reno 1868 FC 55/29/1.90
4) San Antonio FC 52/28/1.86
5) Swope Park Rangers 51/28/1.82
Sep 30, 17, 09:07 AM #144FCC stole three points from Charlotte last night. Mitch came up big in the 94’ saving a PK to preserve the 1-0 result.
Oct 1, 17, 06:57 AM #145Terrible 3-game Northern swing from Louisville. Only took two total points from Ottawa, Toronto, and Rochester. Still in good position to clinch the No. 1 seed in the East; only need one point from the final two home games or for Charleston to just not win in one of its last three.
Oct 10, 17, 07:38 AM #146One last week until the playoffs. Tight races all over the East...
1) Louisville City FC 59/1
2) Charleston Battery 51/1
3) Tampa Bay Rowdies 50/1
4) Charlotte Independence 48/1
5) Rochester Rhinos 47/2
6) NY Red Bull II 44/1
7) Bethlehem Steel FC 43/2 (ahead on diff.)
8) FC Cincinnati 43/1
9) Orlando City B 42/1
Louisville has already secured the No. 1 seed in the East.
Rochester plays Bethlehem today and that will get all the playoff contenders down to one game remaining for a massive slate on Saturday.
The big matches Saturday:
Charlotte vs. Charleston
Orlando vs. Tampa Bay
Rochester vs. New York
Bethlehem vs. St. Louis
Toronto vs. Cincinnati
All five have huge implications on where teams finish in the playoff race. Any one of the teams 2-5 can still finish second and any one of the teams 6-9 can still miss the playoffs entirely.

Oct 12, 17, 08:43 PM #147Tampa Bay beat Orlando tonight, so OCb is out.
New York, Bethlehem, and Cincinnati are all in and Saturday's games determine where they'll end up.
Oct 15, 17, 11:23 AM #148As UofL athletics crumbles under the weight of its sins, I'm thankful to have a pro sport in town that seems to be well-run and gives me something to do on weekends.
Louisville City FC won its regular-season finale last night, beating Richmond Kickers 3-1.
Lou City now waits for the result of a game this afternoon to determine whether it will host Bethlehem Steel FC or New York Red Bulls II in Friday's Eastern Conference Quarterfinal at Slugger Field.
FC Cincinnati awaits the same match to determine whether they'll finish sixth and travel to Florida to play the Tampa Bay Rowdies, or finish seventh and head to Carolina to take on the Charleston Battery.
Between you and me, I didn't want any part of a Louisville/Cincinnati rivalry game in the first round of the playoffs, 8-seed or not. Very happy to see FCC nab that late win last night.
Oct 17, 17, 03:04 PM #149Playoffs begin Friday. Can't wait.

Oct 17, 17, 03:10 PM #150Couldn't be happier than only two MLS reserve teams made the playoffs in each conference -- and in the East they barely snuck in at the 7 and 8 seeds. Good work, independents. That's a great year in the East.
