Yet still more eliminations and advancements

25 May, 2015

With this week’s results, three more teams have been eliminated from contention:

  • The Irons
  • Singapore United
  • Old North State FC

Additionally, we have some teams who have clinched spots in the Quarterfinals, even though no groups have had an outright winner clinch.  The teams securing their spots are:

  • Locomotive Baltimore
  • UnitedMania.com
  • Arlington Avengers

Next week’s matches are the last of the group stage and the following situations exist:

Group A

RFK Raccoon’s, Columbians 29-95, Westfield United are all tied with 15 points.  RFK Raccoon’s is done with all matches, so can not gain any additional points.  As fate would have it, Columbians 29-95 and Westfield United are playing eachother on the last day of Group Play, so any combination of the three teams can still advance.  A draw would eliminate RFK Raccoon’s, but otherwise, the winner of that match will joint RFK Raccoon’s in the quarterfinals.  In either case, a tiebreaker will be necessary to determine the Group Winner. Westfield United holds the tiebreak advantage over RFK Raccoon’s (2 head to head wins), while Columbians 29-95 & RFK Raccoon’s split the head to head matchups but GD is within 3 of eachother, so a win by 4 points or more by Columbians would hand the group to them.

Group B

In this group, Locomotive Baltimore has the most points (18) but is done with group play.  Flag Waiving Redneck can catch up with a win next week, sending the Group title to a tiebreaking situation (Head to head is tied, and FWR holds the advantage in GD).  If FWR fails to win and DCFC wins, second place could come down to a tiebreaker.  (Again, head to head is tied, and FWR holds the advantage in GD)

Group C

DC United West and The Mighty Mussels are tied at the top of Group C with 15 points.  Vamos United trails in second with 12 points.  DC United West are done with Group Stage matches and sit on a GD of 6, which is quite a bit lower than that of the other two contenders.  Vamos United holds the tiebreaking advantage over DC United West (2 wins in head to head), but split the head to head matchups with The Mighty Mussels.  Currently, GD favors The Mighty Mussels, however Vamos United is facing one of the dummy teams and will not have any points scored against them this week.  DC United West & The Mighty Mussels also split their head to head matchups, so GD will come into play if they end Group Play in a draw for points. An interesting group!

Group D

This is the group with the clearest picture. Arlington Avengers and UnitedMania.com have both clinched spots in the quarterfinals and are battling out for Group Winner.  Maximum drama has been set since they play eachother in the last group stage match.  The winner takes the group. In the case of a draw, UnitedMania.com took the first matchup and therefore would win the group.
