Season 31 Winds Down

With 4 matches remaining in the Vipers season 31 campaign, the club is sitting comfortably in 7th place, behind the big 6 clubs.
Greensboro has established itself as a rebuilding giant -- a club that still has enough leftover talent from a goldenage, but one that is generally focusing on building young, homegrown talent.
That combination of young and old has contributed to Greensboro's awkward position between good and bad.
They sit 9 points and 50 sum odd goals clear of 8th place, but are nearly equally as far back from 6th. Simply put - they are in no mans land.
Before Greensboro wraps up the season, they must finish a stretch where 3 of their final 4 games come against big 6 opponents -- Dallas Dragons, Jersey Shore and Minnesota.
A reasonable goal for the Vipers is 1 win, 1 tie and 2 loses in these final four. If the Vipers can attain that goal, they will finish with 20 wins and 9 draws on the season -- with only 9 loses. Last season, the club dropped 14 contests.
And while the club would love to finish strong, it's clear that player development is key. They will likely finish in 7th -- a respectable and expected position -- no matter what the outcome of these final four games.
