Open Division Power Rankings - Week 2

Author: LemonBond, Contributors: MDub & domikus, 02/24/20

With a 10-6 win over the Mighty Clucks, the Fried Chickens remain the 1st place team in our week 2 power rankings.

1. Pyongyang Fried Chickens (0)

Reason: The Fried Chickens only played a single game in week 1, but with a win over the Mighty Clucks they remain at 1st place.

Week 1 Record: 1-0-0

Season Record: 1-0-0


2. Nashville Knights (0)

Reason: With a dominant 10-1 win over a last place Wrath team and a wild game against the Cows that ultimately ended in a 6-5 Knights win, the Knights hold on to that 2nd spot with two wins to start the season.

Week 1 Record: 2-0-0

Season Record: 2-0-0


3. Columbus Clompers (+1)

Reason: The Clompers had a dominant week with two wins (15-3 over the Wrath and 11-7 over the Coyotes). However with both of these wins coming against bottom three teams they remain behind the Knights, but move up a spot past the Cyclone to sit at 3rd.

Week 1 Record: 2-0-0

Season Record: 2-0-0


4. Kansas City Cyclone (-1)

Reason: The Cyclone only played one game this week, that being an interesting 5-4 win that saw a stop in the 3rd period while the clock kept running for a while as a Yetis player was having connection issues. In the end the Cyclone would score the winning 5-4 goal coming off a redirect from BradyB0617 in the dying seconds of the game. However with the dominant week the Clompers had the Cyclone drop one spot to 4th

Week 1 Record: 1-0-0

Season Record: 1-0-0


5. Detroit Mighty Clucks (0)

Reason: With a 5-3 win over the Pepe Tactics and a 10-6 loss to the 1st placed Fried Chickens, the Mighty Clucks hold on to 5th place.

Week 1 Record: 1-1-0

Season Record: 1-1-0


6. Drumbo Cows (0)

Reason: With a win to open their season coming off a forfeit by the Ogres, and with 2 own goals in a crazy game that saw the Cows lose just 6-5 to the Knights, the Cows retain the 6th spot in this week's power rankings.

Week 1 Record: 1-1-0

Season Record: 1-1-0


7. Bangor Yetis (0)

Reason: The Yetis suffered a 5-4 loss to the Cyclone as they gave up the winning goal in the dying seconds of the game. However they displayed a dominant performance with a 9-1 win over the Ogres in their second game this week, keeping them in the 7th spot.

Week 1 Record: 1-1-0

Season Record: 1-1-0


8. Ireland Pepe Tactics (0)

Reason: The Pepe Tactics played only one game this week, a hard fought 5-3 loss vs the Mighty Clucks. Their performance being good enough to keep them in the 8th spot in the week 2 power rankings.

Week 1 Record: 0-1-0

Season Record: 0-1-0


9. Coventry Coyotes (+2)

Reason: The Coyotes were another team to play just one game in week 1, and with that game being an inspiring performance in an 11-7 loss to the 1st placed Clompers. A game which saw the Coyotes come up with strong enough defense and timely goals to stay in the game against a very good looking Clompers team. Coventry could quickly find themselves becoming a favorite underdog in Open Division if they can string together another couple of performances like that early in this season, and thus they move up two spots to 9th, past the Ogres and Wrath.

Week 1 Record: 0-1-0

Season Record: 0-1-0


10. Omaha Ogres (-1)

Reason: With a loss coming off a forfeit to open the season vs the Cows, and a poor performance in a 9-1 loss to the Yetis, the Ogres are quickly finding themselves in the same position they were in the SPL Placement Season. Because of that they drop down one spot to 10th in the week 2 power rankings.

Week 1 Record: 0-2-0

Season Record: 0-2-0


11. Winnipeg Wrath (-1)

Reason: With a pair of blowout losses to open their season (a 10-1 loss to the Knights and a 15-3 loss to the Clompers) the Wrath find themselves dropping one spot to 11th place in this week's power rankings.

Week 1 Record: 0-2-0

Season Record: 0-2-0
