It would be great to see the 2018 LI travel teams play each other over the next couple of months. With the exception of Looney's, the top Maryland 2018 teams play each other all the time. They post their results for all to see on the NPYLL web site, and as far as you can tell, no club has collapsed because they lost a game to another club in Maryland - they all seem to be doing just fine. Long Island teams should be doing the same thing with this age group, and it might start if people/parents stopped trashing a rival organization.
