Your Look Forward And Backwards For This Week

It's that time of year where we take our weekly looks at what went down in the NPSL...

First stop is out west...

Sacramento Gold and CD Aguiluchos are out of the blocks quickly with 15 points. Sonoma County are third with 10 while East Bay FC and Real San Jose have 5 points in the Golden Gate Conference.

Sacramento had the week off, but take on OSA FC this week in a division cross-over. Aguiluchos drew East Bay and get Portland Spartans FC this weekend. A 76th minute goal by Khalid Arramdani gave each a point in the books.

((HT: East Bay their own selves))

Sonoma beat Real and get East Bay this time around. Real also get OSA FC this weekend- on Sunday. Before the crossovers this week in the Northwest Conference, OSA and Portland had a goalless draw last week.

In the newly expanded Southwest Conference, most of the group is still within shouting distance of each other. Albion SC Pros and Temecula FC are at 7 points. SoCal SC are at 6. Deportivo Coras and the North Country Batallion are at 4. FC Hasental are at 3 points. The expansion SC Corinthians are at bottom with one point in their first three matches.

Albion had the week off and get North County who neat Corinthians 3-2 at Del Norte. Here's the highlights from North County as Eric Lopez gets the decider:

They caught up with Lopez postgame as well...

Coras put 5 on Temecula and get the week off as TFC gets SoCal SC and Corinthians get Hasental.
