The Atlanta Renegaes are in command in the South DI club league after winning 48-15 over Boca Raton on the road in Florida.
Charlotte, meanwhile, lost big to Life University, putting them at 0-2.
The South League, cobbled together after have the league dropped down to DII just before the season started, includes non-league matches against Life and Raleigh to give clubs the requisit number of games to play.
Atlanta, now 2-1, has beaten Boca twice and lost to Life. Boca is 0-2, both losses to the Renegades, while Charlotte has lost to its two non-league opponents, Raleigh and Life.
So it's certainly still wide open as Charlotte has yet to play the Renegades.
Next up the Renegades play Raleigh March 5, while Boca and Charlotte clash a week later, and again two weeks after that.
In the space of four weeks, March 12 to April 2, Charlotte plays Boca and Atlanta each twice. That will essentially decide where they are for the season.
