Welcome back to another season of lower league soccer coverage in Philadelphia and the surrounding area! If you need a refresher for what the lower league round up consists of, check out this intro post from last year for a memory jog. In a nutshell, we keep things pretty simple; a centralized weekly roundup of lower league soccer action from the greater Philadelphia area.  So without further ado, let’s see where things stand in some of the local leagues:

Vereinigung Erzgebirge beat Virginia Marauders 3-1 at home on Sunday (Carl Gulbish has a photo gallery from the match) but West Chester United fell 1-0 to Steel Pulse at home and Lancaster City FC had their hands full in Virginia, losing 6-0 to Los Toros.
