Sorting through the clinching rubble

Teams have been clinching left and right here in Greensboro. It's been hard to keep up with all the action. But now that games are wrapping up, we'll try to sort out some of the chaos.

The Columbus Crew took care of business by handling Real So Cal 4-0 to clinch the U-17/18 Great Lakes Conference. 

CASL defeated Potomac this afternoon to wrap up the Atlantic Conference in both the U-15/16 and U-17/18, joining LAFC as the only two clubs to accomplish the double.

The Chicago Magic could only manage a draw on Monday, but it proved to be enough to give them the conference crown. The single point tied them with Sockers FC for the lead in the U-15/16 Mid America Conference, and the head-to head advantage gave the Magic the tiebreaker.

One conference remains unsettled, as three teams in the U-17/18 Mid America Conference still have a chance and games to make up. Sockers holds the lead as of now, but the Chicago Fire and Magic could still complete the comeback.
