NPSL Midwest Week 9: Preview


Carpathia FC vs FC Columbus: 6 PM – Avondale High School, Auburn Hills, MI – Eleven Sports

Two playoff spots are on the line in each division in the Midwest Region. With four games left to play the points difference makes this a do or die for FC Columbus. If they win they keep their hopes of making the playoffs alive. If the hosts Carpathia FC win, the playoff representatives from the Great Lakes are set with every team still having 3-4 matches to play.

Duluth FC vs Minneapolis City SC: 7 PM – Public Schools Stadium, Duluth, MN – Eleven Sports

Host Duluth FC needs to win to keep the Crows from winning their third straight North Conference title. However Minneapolis City SC are heavy favourites entering the match tonight against Duluth.

La Crosse Aris vs Med City FC: 7 PM – Arcadia High School Stadium, Arcadia, WI – No Announced Stream

A win for Med City and the Mayhem could take over the second spot from Duluth FC provided City wins on Wednesday night. Once again the match will not be played at Logan High School in La Crosse but rather Arcadia High School Stadium an hour away from La Crosse.

Sioux Falls Thunder vs Joy Athletic Club: 7 PM – McEneaney Field, Sioux Falls, SD – Eleven Sports

After a great run of matches for Sioux Falls the Thunder are now sitting mid table and along side them is their opponents Joy Athletic. The Goats will look to try and finish out their season on a high note after a fairly poor run of form in their last three matches.


FC Indiana vs FC Columbus: 3 PM – Legacy Sports Club Stadium, Lafayette, IN – Facebook

An impromptu win on Wednesday over Carpathia FC has kept the playoff hopes alive for FC Columbus. FCC trails Carpathia by just four points with three matches to play. With a win Columbus could pull as close as one point away from Carpathia. They also come into the match with the advantage, already having defeated FC Indiana 4-0 back in May. The Lions however are 0-1-5 with one point and will be looking for an upset win to get themselves their first three points of 2021.

Carpathia FC vs FC Milwaukee Torrent: 5 PM – Adams High School, Rochester Hills, MI – Eleven Sports

An upset loss to FC Columbus held off Carpathia FC’s playoff hopes until this weekend and has stunted their chances at a Great Lakes Division title. Now Carpathia will play host to the unbeaten Torrent tonight, a win is desperately needed for the hosts tonight. A Milwaukee win would not only hand the Torrent the Great Lakes title but also will make the playoff race even tighter entering the final two matches.
