Their first lines across the board are ridiculously talented and there is very little drop off from there. Their secret in my view is they are very unselfish lacrosse players. I watched their attack make the extra pass when there didn't look like there was one there, The middies are work horses and the defense and goalie play very in tune with each other. Not a LI fan but this Lax team is legit. Bash all you want and that fine, but credit is due where its due.


I hear ya, and I can promise you I am not a Madlax parent. They (Madlax) haven't lost in a solid year and a half, and this year they picked up two offensive players that are significantly more impactful than #24 has been in the past. This team is much, much different than years past. They have 30 players and the competition they see in MD, DC and VA every weekend is definitely stronger than Express and Legacy.


WP rarely plays Express and Legacy. Having said that, they played Express once this year, and beat them 7-1. Could have been far, far worse. Played Legacy this past weekend, and it looked like WP was playing a very bad B team. The score could have been 20 to nothing, had WP wanted to go that route. WP usually plays the 2023 AA bracket, since few 2024 teams can give them a game. That's where they spend most of their time.
Their only loss of the year, was to an AA 2023 team, which is a top top AA 2023 team. WP came within an inch of winning the game in OT. Played the Hawks, and again, it wasn't a competitive game at all. Madlax just squeaked by the Hawks by 2 goals. Pack plays Hawks, and it's not anything close to a game. All the evidence points to WP beating Madlax by a significant margin. They are on a whole different level this year.

What is wrong with you? Why would you call attention to a player? Good player but really? why would you put such a statement out there? Lots of great players out there. What caused you to post that? J@#$ Meanyquote]

You sound like the guy yelling ar Ron Burgundy, after he told San Diego to go F them selfs.


Ha Ha... : ) Just do not like anyone putting a target on a kids back. Too many A holes out there looking to knock kids or tear them down or try to pick them apart. I just do not like players being named for good or for bad. All good.

Agree m&d and Hero's will continue to win and show well. I believe they are both dealing with injuries to key players, so this speaks to their overall depth. Skywalkers is good, but is not quite there yet.

Feels like most of the M&D teams are falling a bit more each season. The coaching is not there for the money.

Which team is better on Long Island? Express AA or 91 AA. And if the answer is Express, take away their face off kid and who wins? Pros and cons of each team? I am trying to decide which team would be best for my son. Honest answers would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

whole point is to represent your region/area. Now we have players going to other areas just to make teams. This along with the actual process of tryouts is starting to give UA a bad reputation. Many are questioning the UA games .

Should be region based teams and complete unbiased tryouts.. I am a dreamer, never happen i know

Can you give an example of why you think preds are better than 2way? The one team that beat both preds and 2way was sweetlax N.Y. the preds were doubled up and 2 way lost by a goal.


203 Preds remains much stronger than 2Way. Would like to see Eclipse play Preds.

Shocking! It’s almost as if the line up is pre determined before try outs occur.

Unless your coach is connected and “encourages” you to try out, just assume you will not make it and you are just dontating to the events organizers.


The HC is the Koopers coach, The evaluators are all from local well known clubs. Unless you're 6-2 and run a 4.6 forty, you can forget about beating out the "anointed" ones (club team members, friends and family). One or two kids from a public school will be selected to make the process look fair. Everyone else on this team has been pre-selected by the cartel. If the two star freshmen attackmen from the spring go out for this team, look for it to run through the Command Division.


There was a pole from St, Paul's that fit the above description and another big kid from Crabs on attack who played the entire call back game and shockingly neither made the final team. It is what it is, but at the end of the day these boys are still being seen by coaches and the who's who in Baltimore.

They weren't. You aren't in A bracket unless you are with Skywalkers, M&D and YJ. Legacy was in the second bracket.



Liberty did better than Legacy this weekend?


Maybe, but steve is working hard for our girls, can they say the same?


Crickets!

Has Legacy even won a game this season?

Crickets
Your director has written this team off. Heard him telling the Brown coach (shockingly within earshot of people) that this team is nothing like his 2020 team, no one that he could whole heartedly recommend to her, but he has some good girls at 2022 that she should look at, on the sideline of one of their games. What does that say about how hard he is working for that team.

Or just be sure to win your pool. Best two teams made the finals, can't really argue with the semi final teams either.


BL lost by one goal to hawks last weekend who just beat crabs. Crabs demolished VLC are you still gonna say the 4 best made semis. Awful playoff seeding they need to create equal pools atleast.

You realize how silly your logic is when BL lost to the team you are saying was weak

They were good, no shame to get slapped around by the Blastards. Same with rebels and Express North.
Remember that even though they have had unexplainable losses, Blast has beaten CoachC enough times to know it wasn’t a fluke.

eclipse lost to a town team...who tied the other 'town" team who beat 91


town teams beat 91 all the time

EXPRESS blatantly cheated with game scheduling for opponents and strength of schedule for themselves.
They also brought down older kids and all that combined, they gave up more goals in 2 days then the teams that actually made the final four,hows that make their defense best in the country??
What and when have they ever won ANYTHING to be able to spew such a statement...just ridiculous.

It’s amazing the grudge people carry. No older kids came down and the brackets all had at least two top teams. The True IL team gave the 91 all they could handle. They know who these clubs are. Express is in the Midwest now. But keep your bitterness and anger going, it’s so worth it.

All of these teams are good. Some are really strong, others not. But who cares. I don't understand the need to come on here and insult teams, girls, coaches, clubs, etc..

They're just kids !!!!!!!!!!
