Casa Soccer League — week 9

The Casa Soccer League plays its last round of regular season games this week (weather permitting), with playoff and promotion spots on the line.

In the league’s top division, five teams are vying for the final two playoff spots, with West Philly FC and Deportivo Arsenal already having clinched postseason berths. The Penn United vs. Allstars match at 12:40 p.m. will likely determine one of those spots. Penn can clinch a playoff spot with a win, while the Allstars need a win – a draw won’t do – to keep their longshot hopes alive. If Philly Soccer Firm and KS Cracovia can upset the division’s top two teams, at least one of them will be playing come postseason time. (View schedule and standings.)

In the Segunda division, the promotion fight comes down to the last day, and two of three teams in the mix – Philly United and Cannons FC – will play each other at 8:50 a.m. Whoever finishes first assures themselves promotion to Primera. Philly United sits atop the table, one point ahead of Real Optimus and two in front of the Cannons. Real Optimus, who play Philadelphia Athletic, has never played in Primera, but they’ve ascended Casa’s ranks behing Rob Tuttle and Jason Danley. The Cannons, led by the division’s leading scorer, Mike Trofa, are trying to get back to the top division, where they have spent most of their Casa tenure before their shock relegation in the spring. But Philly United controls its own destiny here. The two that fall short have a shot to win the second promotion spot by winning the four-team postseason playoff. Skulls FC and Drinkers Pub United are competing for the fourth playoff spot. (View schedule and standings.)

Down in Tercera, Organized Chaos have already clinched the regular season title and promotion to Segunda, and United Nations FC is also in the playoffs. Four teams are fighting for the two final playoff spots. Sporting Philly and Sons of Ben Independence have the inside track – if they win, they’re in. SP play FC Spartans. SoBI have Tri-County United, who are unbeaten in their last five games. If SP or SoBI can’t take care of business, TCU or Lot Lizards, who play last place nOgerland, could find themselves playing come playoff time. Only four teams make the playoffs, with the playoff winner assured promotion. The first tiebreaker is head-to-head match-up, followed by goal difference. (View schedule and standings.)

The Abierto division has a similar situation, with the top two playoff spots and the division title already clinched. Bayern Makefield, K-R-E-V and Sons of Ben Union are all competing for the final two postseason slots. SoBU has the toughest matchup, playing first place Park Towne United, who have given up only four goals through eight games. Bayern Makefield play 9th place Sidewinders FC, and K-R-E-V has FC Recreational Hazards. If the season ended right now, K-R-E-V would be the fifth team and odd man out, but it doesn’t, so they can nudge their way into the postseason with a result and some help. (View schedule and standings.)

The playoffs are set to begin Saturday, Dec. 12, weather permitting.
