Club Power Rankings [8/31/22]

Where things stand heading into the final weekend of the regular season.

Each week, we’ll post an updated edition of our Power Rankings here on the front page to facilitate discussion in the comments and help us share each week’s rankings via social media. The most up-to-date version can always be found on our permanent rankings page.

Men’s Discussion

  • The two ranked teams in action this past weekend, #17 Utah Pando and #25 Raleigh-Durham United, both cruised in local events against lower level competition. Both have hit the 10 game minimum to be considered for a strength bid, but neither did enough during their regular seasons to factor into the allocation. They, along with everyone else, sit tight this week.

Mixed Discussion

  • Much like in Men’s, the only ranked Mixed team to compete over the weekend, #22 Cleveland Crocs, held seed in crushing in-region competition without a chance to earn wins that would move them up in our rankings.

Women’s Discussion

  • In the only meaningful elite-level competition of the weekend, many of the West Coast’s finest met in San Francisco for a late-season round robin. As expected, #1 San Francisco Fury came out on top, though it wasn’t always easy. San Diego Flipside continued their incredibly impressive inaugural season, holding a late lead on the hosts before falling by one to the world silver medalists for the second time this summer. Coupled with a relatively comfortable upset win over Denver Molly Brown, it’s enough to see the Southern Californians move up to #2 this week, while Denver slide back to #4.
  • There was a bit of a competitive drop off from the tournament’s top three to the next tier. #10 Seattle Riot, #15 San Francisco Nightlock, and #22 Seattle Underground all played to expectations in finishing fourth, fifth, and sixth respectively, and all maintain their place on our board rather than moving up or down.
