Also please dont use US Club Rankings they stink and it depends on the schedule/tourneys you play.

There are tons of examples were a team is tanked like 20 but beat 8 of the teams ahead of them etc.

Well if not teams have played a meaningful game in 2020 then the post from 11/15 should still be the same until later in the summer when actual games are played.


Based on the summer, looks like for 2023, BL still #1, Freedom #2, Mesa #3, HHH #4, Team 11 #5 then NXT, Rough Riders

anyone disagree? Mesa and HHH could be swapped I guess.

When Mesa is healthy and the full team is playing they whip Freedom and beat BL more often then not like hey did last summer. When banged up with 5 kids out - on of their top poles and all 3 top O they lost by 1 to HHH then played them with them back and won by 12. HHH is closer to NXT/Team 11 Then top 3.

Mesa also beat NXT in the fall by 10 a week after NXT had manhandled BL.

BL is good but lets be honest they trophy hunt like the Sons used too and avoid the big events where they usually don't do as well. Player by player BL has the advantage at FOGO and G, Mesa has the advantage at D and Attack. Its a wash at Middie.

Overall BL & Mesa are tops in Philly at 2023 then Freedom. After that they are all pretty average with HHH probably on top.

Overall I will say 2023 isnt a great year in Philly.

t was a great game all around. Both teams should be proud of how they played. Hawks came out strong and took a 4-0 lead. Once Express scored their first goal, the momentum completely shifted and they out scored the Hawks 7-1 in the remainder of the game. Express kids kept their composure and came back. As I said, it was a great game against good competition and isn’t that what it is all about? “/quote”

My son plays on a 25 team so I watched the game as his team was between games. Very competitive. A key play in the game occurred with maybe 5 mins to play and score tied 5 5. Hawks middie was attempting to clear and was pretty obviously tripped from behind and flew in the air thereby losing the ball. The ref was way out of position and did not throw the flag. Express scooped the ball and immediately scored on a fast break as the Hawks middie remained on the ground and was out of the play. Would have been interesting to see outcome had ref made the call sending Hawks on 1 minute EMO. Had they scored chances are Express would have won the face off and been under pressure to score with short time from a set.

What was cool to see was the camaraderie between Express parents and Hawks parents who agreed it was an obvious trip with each side showing support for the Hawks middle and recognizing the quick play of Express attack. Not what you see on this board but a positive reflection of parents from both clubs.

Again, a really well played game from 2 strong and well coached teams.

I could see a first round match up against BC as they are fairly regional with BC hitting the exits early. Hofstra will never be successful , they essentially only allow 1 player to shoot the ball ,fairly easy for any team to game plan against.

Very unlikely BC and SBU would meet in the first round, Hofstra is a solid second tier team as is Stony Brook (this year). Hofstra vs Stony Brook should be a competitive game this year.

It’s an honor, but unless they are seeing substantial time on the field as a Varsity player (which is rare) they should be on a Fresh/Soph or JV team and being a leader. Stop trying to brag on FB/Instagram/SnapChat that your 9th grader made varsity. In reality, her field time will be extremely limited, but by all means, push for her to be a bench warmer so you can brag on Social Media.

Plenty of freshman play substantial minutes in HS. Sorry if yours didnt

When yours does you can talk. Until then hush ! At good schools many are there to learn for when their time comes. A few special ones play. I see 1 at spsg that can contribute next year if she keeps working. Tall draw girl and left handed. Most will be just wearing a uniform. I wanna see my kid play not just share a seat on the bus with a contributor. On another note word is another 24 joining spsg so someone in 25 class gets bumped down.

My daughter is a senior and has started every game she’s ever played on a top IAAM team. So have many others. So plenty of us can talk and actually know what we’re talking about and not be a loudmouth parent of an 8th grader telling people their kids won’t play as freshman when you have absolutely no idea.

Afraid to ask a question. Good God. That’s what happens to some of these people. They are so brainwashed by some of these coaches and directors. It’s laughable. I don’t think I can ever say those words IM AFRAID TO ASK. Oh by the way and I’m paying thousands.

Re: 2020-2021 Women's College Lacrosse Season Anonymous 6 hours ago
Does anyone have any insight as to why Duke has fallen off? Honest question, the program began in 1996, they made their first NCAA Tournament in 1998, They made it to the Final Four in 1999, they won their first ACC regular season championship in 2004, their first ACC Tournament in 2005, they went to the Final Four again in 2006, 2007 and 2008, from 2006 - 2015 they finished the season ranked in the Top 10 every year and made a couple more Final Fours, they ended the season Ranked 11th in 2016. Duke was not Top 20 in 2017, 2018 or 2019 (2020 doesn't count) and they do not look to be very good this year. I do not think there is another program that has fallen off like Duke. Just curious as to why they have dropped off.

My kids team played 91 this weekend and got crushed- no name needed as I don’t want to hurt my daughters team. I was excited to see her coach due to the threads and seeing her training everywhere recently. I was not disappointed and can confirm everything said on this thread about her. There was not a minute she wasn’t coaching. She was hard on the kids but for every fix this comment was a why behind it. It was also clear she was trying to handle herself with grace as her kids racked up points. You could see her calling more plays, asking her kids to practice different types of shots, and more. She also took the time to clap for my daughters team and even call out numbers from our roster to congratulate them on good plays. I understand that some teams may be better than hers, but after seeing what so many have said first hand I get why everyone seems to be flocking towards her even if she coaches for a program that isn’t one of notorious stature. Not sure that this post makes any difference in the grand scheme of it all but I felt like the team deserves to be recognized when it’s due

Neither of these teams will win the world series

Who you got then? Please don't say Tigers and their one man show!!!

I would bet that the prior poster's dark horse team is Black Ops. They have a lot of talent and good coaching, so their parents are pretty excited. But they are a combined team with little practice, so doing most of their boasting anonymously. Anyhow that is my theory.
Blacks Ops vs Express this Saturday. Black Ops will be be exposed soon enough.

This team does have a lot of talent and if given enough time to practice and play together could make some noise. However I agree with limited time together it will be impossible to beat teams like the Express, Hawks, Tigers etc. Express by at least 4 on Saturday.

Realistically how many kids on the AA teams are actual holdbacks? And was this something done years ago or are they being held back in older grades. Thanks for your answers, ill hang up and listen

I think Cuse will be fires up for this game. They never got to play last year. Team seems solid without 51 but keeper needs to be on fire

Should be great game. Both teams are loaded.... Just looking at the 12 Starters for each squad and they are very talented. UNC 10 of the 12 Starters were Under Armour All-Americans, It looks like 5 or 6 have earned All-American honors in college, they are loaded with upper classmen including 5th year players (1 grad student transfer who starts). Syracuse is loaded as well... It looks like 7 of the 12 starters were Under Armour All-Americans, and 4 or 5 have earned All-American as a college player. Syracuse is also a veteran team I do not believe any freshmen start for either team. (1 grad student transfer who starts). Both teams are deep and the other players who may not "start" but who play every game are all excellent. I think the edge goes to UNC in this one but there is a good chance they could play 3 games vs each other this year.
