#4 Dallas Texans 99B South


Dirk Nowitzki and the NBA Champion Mavericks have nothing on our No. 3 team, as the Dallas Texans 99B South have already won two titles this fall.

The Montclair, NJ squad also made a finals appearance at the MAPS Cup 2011 (B13 B MAPS Cup) tournament, going 2-1-1 at the event. The Rangers beat the Morris United STA Gunners 5-1 at that tournament.

#1 Pateadores


With exactly half of our list containing teams from California, it's logical that the state's top team is also our No. 1, Rancho Santa Margarita's Pateadores. In October the club won all eight of its games in the So Cal Developmental League (B13 Flight 1 South) to place first. This run included a 2-1 victory over the No. 2 United FC B98, and a 1-0 win over the San Diego Surf SC 98-99.
