Chill bro. Port is a solid team but GC beats then 9 out of 10 times.

“Chill bro”? Haha you’re funny. We’ve had to listen to you people yammering on here for years so you’re the one who needs to chill. You lost.

Relax Schreiber daddy, you've been awful for years, one good season doesn't make up for the pathetic program Schreiber has fielded for over a decade. Next year will be the same old Schreiber.

Going forward you have seen and will continue to see, much more parity with other towns improving and beating the Mann's and GC's of the world. I believe that many of the towns have caught up with the $ and hold back aspect along with getting top training for their boys. Its all good for LI lax.


wow... someone finally had the cahones to say it out loud. How dare you insinuate that Mann and GC don't own lacrosse any longer?

Middies
T91MD #10 - Throw back 2-way mid. Scores from all over the field and plays solid defense.
T91MD #99 - Cannon for a shot. Scores a ton
Crabs #17 - Prototypical big mid. Shoots rockets from both sides

Attack
T91MD #77 - this kid is the real deal. Dodger and shooter. Finds the open space and takes advantage of it.
T91MD #9 - Without a doubt the QB of the 91 offense. W/O him they only score half of what they put up this spring
Next Level #27 - Moves off ball well to find the open space, hard to defend. Great hands free shooter.

FOGO
T91MD #0 - Did this guy go under 60% in any game this year?

LSM
Madlax #11 - Tall/long LSM with great range. Picks up a lot of GBs and causes TO's. Defends dodgers well.

SSDM
T91MD #18 - Great on ball defender, but has the speed to carry a clear to the offensive end.

Close Defense
T91 MD #37 - This guy always seems to be causing a TO and scooping a GB.
DC Express #22 - Very Athletic and rangy defender. Has a nose for causing TOs and getting GBs.
Madlax #15 - Big and strong Close D. Can take runs at LSM or a faceoff. Fundamentally sound. One of the best defenders I watched all spring.

Goalie
T91MD #29 - This guy made some incredible saves this year which really bailed his defense out on several occasions.


Good list.... but my two cents:

Mids:

Insert 91 #27 in for 91 #10

Attack:

Insert NL #1 in for 91 #77

FOGO:

Insert DCE fogo for 91 fogo

LSM:

Insert Crabs #41 in for ML #11

All others I agree

91 FOGO dominated DCE in their game. 60% at the dot and had a goal. I was already on the fence about the LSM spot between both of those players. I think either is a good choice.

Re: Girls High School Anonymous 8 hours ago
Now I’m worried because my daughter play defense and there’s no way to stick out😔. That’s why I detest these things/tryouts.
Also I know of at least three hungry girls who are middies that will register as defense just to increase chances. Wah wah wah I know!☺️☺️☺️ Good luck everyone.

What the what ? You are truly pathetic “everyone agrees that the ACC is a good conference” , you can’t even say the words that the ACC is the best conference for lacrosse in both men’s and women’s . You clowns keep bringing up previous years results from many years ago to try and make predictions about this years teams , it’s a ridiculously obtuse argument from if I were a betting man a ridiculously jealous parent who realizes his kids conference is essentially 13th grade.

I have not seen where anyone has made any predictions nor have I read any post claiming the ACC is not the best conference. The only thing that has been pointed out is that not all ACC Teams are created equal and that there have always been many teams that are able to complete with the ACC teams. You obviously believe that by being in The ACC your daughters team is better than all other teams. It has been pointed out that in normal years many teams beat ACC teams. If you can not understand that this year is not a normal year I don’t know what to tell you. At the end of the day the past year and a half will be a blip on the history of the sport and know for the Covid craziness.

Just when I thought you could not get anymore pathetic you prove me wrong. How sad that you are already trying to diminish the accomplishment of which ever team wins. In actuality winning the championship this season will be an even more difficult task than any prior season in my opinion. Dealing with Covid is hard enough and these young women have had to sacrifice more this year than any other and the fact that many of these teams are much deeper than previous years makes winning it this year an amazing accomplishment. You sadly keep bringing up that in the past ...blah blah, we are talking about this year. If you think 5-10 years from now when one of these players proudly tells their son or daughter that they were a member of the 2021 national championship team that their accomplishment should be diminished because of covid it says more about you than their accomplishment.
To change the subject lets see if anyone has some upset predictions for the weekend,


Wow, very sensitive. Nobody diminished anything. Pointing out that it is not normal is not diminishing... this year several teams that would normally play and many times beat ACC teams did not play them so it is not normal. Covid has had different affects on different teams, but they all deal with it.

For sure, but even more fun when Coach Rage gets on here

At least the trolling by others brings out a laugh, yours is sad and desperate and repeated 200 times in 300 pages. With all there is to make fun of with 2026 youth lax, you're still here beating a dead horse after he went 7-0. Keep fighting the good fight.

Sorry Rage it is doubtful you will make the HOCO finals and you will lose in the final if you make it that far.

Why are you the same guy on here trolling 91 all the time? You keep coming on here sounding like a little female dog! Yes, you are an Igloo dad who lost to 91 and are looking to get some credit for playing "up" in a 2025 B bracket in this tourney. The 2025B bracket is a joke also. 91 entered this tourney a long time ago and doesn't control who entered. You should be happy not to lose to 91 again.
91 only came into the bracket yesterday after Igloo moved to 2025 bracket. If they were in a long time ago, kind of odd they waited to be put in the bracket until after Igloo left. -Dad from one of the B teams in that bracket that was supposed to play Igloo

BLC 27 vs MD United 27
BLC 27 -7
BLC has a 1/3 chance of winning it all I would say, and they want the division.

Coppermine Black 27 vs FCA Blue 27
Coppermine Black 27 -13
FCA season high goals is 5, and Coppermine will hit double digits for a third straight game.

NEMS 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's Green 27 -7
My gut tells me Hero's makes a statement in this critical game for 1st place.

M&D Black 27 vs MD United 27
M&D Black 27 -8
M&D is hitting their stride and they won't call off the dogs.

Skywalkers Blue 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red 27 -9
Pride needs this game to get back on the right track and get some positivity back

Integrity 27 vs Pride Red 27
Integrity 27 -3
Pride Red 13-0
I think there were some circumstances outside the control of both teams here, kudos to Pride, Integrity can look forward to summer tournaments

BLC 27 vs MD United 27
BLC 27 -7
BLC 5-4
Close game here, great defense by both teams, both squads played tough. BLC had a scare.

Coppermine Black 27 vs FCA Blue 27
Coppermine Black 27 -13
Coppermine Black 12-4
We will find out this weekend if Coppermine are legit or not.

NEMS 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's Green 27 -7
Hero's Green 27 8-3
NEMS hung in there but Hero's too much, as I assumed.

M&D Black 27 vs MD United 27
M&D Black 27 -8
M&D Black 11-7
Another good showing by MDU here, M&D gearing up for playoffs.


Skywalkers Blue 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red 27 -9
Pride Red 12-4
Went exactly as I though. Pride got its first two wins this weekend with M&D on the horizon.


MY observations, lots of the middle of the pack teams are getting better. The gap may be shrinking some, but its still the Big Three (Hero's M&D and BLC).

LI has a whole bunch of really good 2024s and it will be fun to see them all back out playing and see what they can do.


Cant wait and to see how the LI 24s do on the bigger stage. See how they stack up against MD players???

Mnd/sw should have been a 10-5 game. Even after mnd got smoked in draws, mnd couldn’t hit the net. And got more cards. Team effort grit defines winners. Also not putting the ball on the ground.

Why would anyone bother[/

UA 150 is very watered down. With so many tourneys this summer and UA, AS, or even Empires. Not many 23 kids from Thorn applied. I can’t speak on TG or others but i think fair to say if you are on Thorn or TG black you would have been picked

I originally posted and my post was edited. I'll try again. It's a money grab. It's a waste of time. None of the better girls are doing it.

(1) It is nice to see non-powerhouses becoming relevant and the "spreading of the wealth" is great for the game. However and maybe its just a down year but I don't feel the lacrosse does not looks very good this year and I feel the top teams of 3,4,5 years ago and especially older would absolutely destroy these top teams. I also feel this way about the top talent in general. it seemed like many more top D1 prospects were coming out of Westchester.
