Quakes Playoff Scenarios

October 21, 2015

With Sporting KC losing tonight, the Quakes have a few scenarios that can happen which would put them in the playoffs.

If the Quakes lose: we’re out and no chance.

If the Quakes tie FC Dallas:

  • SKC would need to lose to L.A. Galaxy (which could happen) as both teams would have 13 wins and Quakes own the second tie-break (+3 goal differential to +2 for SKC and a loss would put them further behind)
  • No other possible scenarios

If the Quakes win, any combination of:

  • Portland loss (Quakes would own second tie differential)
  • Seattle loss or tie (Quakes advance on points)
  • Sporting KC loss or tie (Quakes advance on points)

So bottom line: we need to win to have the best chance at advancing.  A tie and we have to hope.  Sunday’s going to be a fun day!
