June MLS Regional Standings: Taste the Rockies

New, comments

Despite the post-CCL funk for Real Salt Lake and the Colorado Rapids continuing to tread water, the Mile High Club tops the standings in June, as they have every month this season. But their 1.63 PPG pace is well below their peak at the beginning of the season when both teams were undefeated. California shoots two places up the standings thanks mainly to the Galaxy's torrid streak, though Chivas has improved significantly since the opening month of the season. Canada (which currently consists of Toronto FC, as the Vancouver Whitecaps remain part of Cascadia) jumps over the Midwest despite being terrible, thanks to Sporting Kansas City's awful all-road record and Colombus and Chicago treading water. Otherwise the standings are unchanged.

Region Teams Games Points PPG
Mile High Club Real Salt Lake, Colorado 24 39 1.63
California Uber Alles San Jose, Los Angeles, Chivas 41 63 1.54
Don't Mess With Texas Houston, Dallas 28 40 1.43
East Coast Media Bias New England, New York, Philadelphia, DC 50 69 1.38
Cascadia Seattle, Vancouver, Portland 41 48 1.17
Oh. Canada Toronto, {Montreal} 14 13 0.93
Midwest is the Best Sporting KC, Chicago, Columbus 34 31 0.91

In Cascadia, the Sounders have picked up the region with a decent run of wins and ties. In Vancouver the Tom Soehn era thus far doesn't differ much from the Teitur Thordarson era and the team has yet to pick up its second win for the season. Portland continues its Jekyll & Hyde home/road routine, though they earned their first home loss to DC United after being shut out in a friendly versus Ajax. Hey, Timbers: #TrophiesNotFriendlies.
