MLS NEXT Pro Power Rankings: Matchweek 11

North Texas SC

Matchweek 11 action in MLS NEXT Pro featured important victories for Philadelphia Union II, North Texas SC, and LAFC2.

All three clubs remain near the top of the league standings, while Chattanooga FC's two points earned also kept them in the overall top-four. FC Cincinnati's winning streak came to an end this past weekend while Chicago Fire II gained a valuable three points against rivals Columbus Crew 2.

Here is a closer look at MLS NEXT Pro's Top 10 Power Rankings following Matchweek 11:

10.) New York Red Bulls II

Three-straight losses haven't fully knocked New York Red Bulls II out of the Top 10 Power Rankings, but a fourth defeat might be what does.

A 5-1 hammering at the hands of Philadelphia Union II have Red Bulls II struggling for any consistency. Following back-to-back losses to Orlando City B and FC Cincinnati 2, Red Bulls II failed to offer much against the East leaders on Sunday.

A rivalry showdown with NYCFC II comes next on Saturday, which could be what continues their losing run or helps them break out of their recent funk.

Last Match: 5-1 loss vs. Philadelphia Union II
Next Match: at NYCFC II on Saturday, June 1.

9.) Sporting KC II

Sporting KC II enjoyed a bye week during Matchweek 11's schedule but gets back to action to begin a busy June slate.

A trip to MNUFC2 on Sunday starts a five-match schedule for Benny Feilhaber's men, a run that Feilhaber will certainly hope his squad uses to their advantage. Sitting fifth in the West, SKC II still have a lot of time to move up the standings, especially with four of those five matches coming against teams below them in the standings.

Last Match: Bye Week
Next Match: at MNUFC2 on Sunday, June 2.

8.) Chicago Fire II

Sometimes all you need to get back on track is a rivalry win. That looked to be the case for Chicago Fire II.

Fire II defeated Columbus Crew 2 by a 2-1 scoreline on Friday, using goals from David Poreba and Peter Soudan to get the job done. The result was Fire II's sixth home win of the campaign in all competitions, ranking them second in home results in the Eastern Conference.

A trip to TFC II comes on Friday to close Fire II's May schedule.

Last Match: 2-1 win vs. Columbus Crew 2

6.) St. Louis CITY2

St. Louis CITY2 rebounded during Matchweek 11's slate, earning a 1-0 home victory over The Town FC.

Mykhi Joyner's second-half penalty kick goal was all Bobby Murphy's squad needed to rebound from a midweek defeat to Houston Dynamo 2. Defensively, they held The Town FC to zero shots on target, continuing to be one of the better backlines in MLS NEXT Pro.

Back-to-back matches at Colorado Rapids 2 and Tacoma Defiance will be tough for CITY2 in the next two weeks, but are definitely winnable matches.

Last Match: 1-0 win vs. The Town FC
Next Match: at Colorado Rapids 2 on Sunday, June 2.

5.) Ventura County FC

Matchweek 11 featured a setback result for Venutra County FC.

A 1-0 road loss to Whitecaps FC 2 was VCFC's second in a row on the road and third overall in the past six matches. Despite getting back on track in Matchweek 10, VCFC fell to fourth place in the Western Conference.

All of VCFC's next three matches are against clubs below them in the standings, providing a good opportunity to get some confidence back heading into the summer.

4.) North Texas SC

Make it back-to-back wins for North Texas SC.

John Gall's men have been one of the tougher sides this spring and that trend will certainly carry into June's schedule. Pedro Fonseca and Tarik Scott both celebrated goals on Friday, continuing to play vital attacking roles this season.

A Matchweek 12 trip to LAFC2 will be a good measuring stick match for both clubs.

LAFC2 were able to claim a full three points to close its May schedule.
