The real test would be the U16 DA age group. Can you do that group, too? :)
There aren't enough teams/divisions in U16/DPL to make an RPI analysis really all that insightful. But here's the overall standings sorted by points per game (assigning 3 points for a win and 1 point for a tie):

Yeah, they don't post it, but you can download all the individual game results from the DA website. I had that data in a spreadsheet already, so was able to create the standings with a quick pivot table.

Does anybody know what ever happened to those DA scouts that used to show up and observe games? I have not seen a single one in 2019.

For a while, there weren’t any scouts because there were non employed by US Soccer. We had some in Jan/Feb then none for a while. Had 2 at our last home game but non over the past 2 weeks.

With the upcoming Training Centers in soCal, I am betting we will see more over the next 2 weeks

We had a scout out in November that was our same guy as last year. I don’t think that’s the reason you’re seeing fewer scouts. You’re seeing fewer scouts because they are watching games on video instead of coming out.

Not saying you’re wrong because you’re not....think both reasons play into it.

I'm going to add something new this time. Through yesterday the U18/19 teams have played 676 games. Here are the 5 biggest upsets of the season (based on RPI differential):

1. Portland Thorns FC 2-0 victory over Real So Cal on 2/23/19
winner RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.4715 (37, #3 NW)
loser RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.6014 (2, #1 SW)
RPI differential (RPI rank differential): 0.1299 (35)

2. San Jose Earthquakes 3-2 victory over Crossfire Premier on 10/27/18
winner RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.4118 (56, #8 NW)
loser RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.5372 (18, #1 NW)
RPI differential (RPI rank differential): 0.1254 (38)

3. So Cal Blues Soccer Club 1-0 victory over Los Angeles Premier Futbol Club on 4/14/19
winner RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.4354 (49, #13 SW)
loser RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.5595 (14, #5 SW)
RPI differential (RPI rank differential): 0.1241 (35)

4. Oklahoma Energy FC 4-3 victory over Frontier..SPORTING Blue Valley on 11/11/18
winner RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.4008 (57, #9 Frontier)
loser RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.5108 (25, #4 Frontier)
RPI differential: 0.1100 (32)

5. Lamorinda Soccer Club. 2-1 victory over Crossfire Premier on 10/14/18
winner RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.4418 (47, #7 NW)
loser RPI (RPI rank, standing): 0.5372 (18, #1 NW)
RPI differential: 0.0954 (29)

The first 3 are all massive upsets, though the first two might be explained by the losing teams each missing their leading scorers for those games. Also, Real So Cal's RPI is so high, any loss would be a major upset.

In the #3 upset, all of LA Premier's leading scorers played, including their superstar Brianna McReynolds (the fifth leading scorer in the country). They had only been shut out once before all season so hard to explain that one.

If I have time I'll try to do a similar analysis for the other age groups, but it may be a week or so.

Any chance of getting these again for this year? The Cup play should a little more intradivisional insight.
