Gonzalo Medina keeps scoring, and Floridians F.C. keeps winning as a result.

The forward scored his seventh goal of the regular season in a 1-0 Floridians F.C. win against Palm Beach Suns FC on Wednesday. With its fourth consecutive win of the campaign, Floridians F.C. moves into within one point of the top spot in the Southeast Division standings with one game in hand on the South Florida Surf.

Here’s the Southern Conference’s Top 6:

1. Floridians F.C. (Previous: 4)
Last Week: W 1-0 at Palm Beach Suns FC
Medina has seven goals this season, and his strike at Oxbridge Academy on Wednesday proved to be the game-winner. Defensively, Floridians F.C. looked strong; the team earned its third shutout victory of the regular season.

2. Midland/Odessa Sockers FC (Previous: 3)
Last Week: No Games
Sockers FC had Week 7 off, and benefited from Mid South Division rivals OKC Energy U23 falling in one of their two contests. Now, Sockers FC sits atop the standings with 17 points through eight games.

3. South Florida Surf (Previous: 1)
Last Week: T 1-1 at SW Florida Adrenaline
The Surf were not as sharp all around as they have been in recent weeks, but they secured a road point to stay atop the Southeast standings for the time being. Lucas Da Silva scored the Surf’s only goal, while Lucas Coutinho continued his impressive 2016 season with another assist.

4. OKC Energy U23 (Previous: 2)
Last Week: W 1-0 at Albuquerque Sol F.C., L 3-2 at Albuquerque Sol F.C.
