The opening week of the 2010 USCL season brought many surprise results as the underdogs scored well against the top seeds.
HIghlight of the opening week was New Jersey Knockouts getting KO'd by the Philadelphia Inventors, with their talisman scorer, GM Boris Gulko, who previously had a 8-0 record in the competition, going down in one of the most memorable upset defeats in the league's history, at the hands of FM Tom Bartell, who collects for himself the USCL Upset Prize sponsored by Endgame Clothing.
Meanwhile the defending champions, the New York Knights, scored an emphatic 4-0 victory over rivals Boston Blitz - a result that leaves a clear message to others that they intend to repeat their performance in winning the title last year.
