2. Somerville: 3 wins, 1 loss, 1 tie - 7 points
3. Medford: 3 wins, 2 losses - 6 points

5. Malden: 0 wins, 5 losses - 0 points
Yesterday Somerville outplayed Medford to a 2-0 win. Both goals in the first half. Somerville looked great, winning the midfield and finding their wings in open field. Medford defense had trouble with the dynamic attack. Somerville looks strong; deadly in their attack and solid defense. Look for a good remainder of the season from them as they are 6-1-1 overall
Medford has dropped 3 straight after starting 6-0, starting with Everett, Billerica and Somerville. Medford defense seems to be struggling, and some key mistakes as a team cost them some goals against Everett and Somerville. The Medford offense has been a little quiet and the defense and goalkeeper have been exposed in their 3 straight losses. Expect some changes as they look to go back on top of the GBL and out of their slump. (6-3) overall
Everett took it to Malden 5-1 last night, assuring them the top spot in the GBL for now. Everett haven't lost in 5 games since their 6-1 manhandling from Danvers. Still not impressed by them, only surprising to see them standing up top of the GBL over Somerville and Medford; the two favorites.
Malden is just flat out struggling, their play in the GBL is very bad. They just can't compete with any team. Not much information coming out of them or Cambridge from me, if anybody can add some input, feel free.
