The South Florida Surf jump into the top spot of the Southern Conference Power Rankings after the OKC Energy U23 only earned one point in two contests against Mississippi Brilla FC during Week 6.

The Surf earned their fourth win of the regular season, and they now sit atop the Southeastern standings with 14 points through seven games.

Here’s the Southern Conference’s Top 6:

1. South Florida Surf (Previous: 4)
Last Week: W 3-1 at The Villages SC, W 3-2 vs. IMG Academy Bradenton
The Surf’s win streak extended to three games after defeating The Villages SC at The Villages Polo Club on Wednesday and IMG Academy at South County Regional Stadium on Saturday. In their three-game win streak, the Surf have scored 10 goals. Lucas Coutinho leads the attack, and has had a hand in at least one goal in each of the team’s past three victories.

2. OKC Energy U23 (Previous: 1)
Last Week: L 2-1 at Mississippi Brilla FC, T 1-1 at Mississippi Brilla FC
The Energy U23 looked unstoppable heading into Week 6, but Brilla FC stood tall and ended their perfect run. The Energy now sit four points behind Midland/Odessa Sockers FC in the Mid South Division, but they have played two fewer games than Sockers FC.

3. Midland/Odessa Sockers FC (Previous: 2)
Last Week: T 0-0 vs. Albuquerque Sol F.C., T 2-2 vs. Albuquerque Sol F.C.
Sockers FC remains atop the Mid South after Week 6 action, but the Texas side was unable to secure a win in two home matches. Sol F.C. was able to frustrate Sockers FC, forcing a 0-0 tie on Thursday before recording a 2-2 tie on Saturday at Grande Communications Stadium.

4. Floridians F.C. (Previous: 3)
Last Week: Postponed match at Palm Beach Suns FC
Floridians F.C. is currently on a three-game win streak, but the club was unable to add to that number against Palm Beach Suns FC due to a weather delay that forced postponement.

5. Mississippi Brilla FC (Previous: NR)
Last Week: W 2-1 vs. OKC Energy U23, T 1-1 vs. OKC Energy U23
Brilla FC finds itself in this week’s Top 6 after two impressive performances against the Energy U23. Newton Henry scored once in each game against the Energy U23 at Traceway Park, while Oscar Jimenez netted once and assisted the game-winner on Friday. Brilla FC now sits third in the Mid South standings.

6. FC Miami City (Previous: 6)
Last Week: T 2-2 at The Villages SC
Miami City has proved to be a tough team to beat this regular season, and that was the case once again on Saturday. In the PDL Game of the Week, Miami City came from behind to secure a point on the road at The Villages Polo Club. Kevin Coiffic and Marvin Hezel scored the goals for visiting Miami City.
