The Pioneers have worked their way to the top of the Northeast Division with a powerful attack and an even stronger defense through seven games outscoring opponents 15 to 2 along the way.

Week 6: @WF
Last Week: 2
The third place team in the Northeast has slipped slightly in the Power Rankings with two losses last week against the Pioneers and the Bolts. Black Rock started the season strong and have been struggling to hold onto that form with three losses in their last four games and will need to bounce back soon if they want to pressure the top two teams.

Week 7: @WFC

Last Week: Not Ranked
They may be a bit more inconsistent away from home this season but have three wins out of four at home with a three-game homestand coming up through Week 8 and 9. NCFC U23 won their last game on Friday over Lionsbridge FC 2-1, getting revenge over them from their opening day loss.
