Given this Madlax team has practiced for 3 weeks, and was missing key contributors, I would say they are almost par with Hawks and NL. Certainly these teams did not dominate them.
Stop being a homer. I watched several games at the stadium and you are crazy. Both NL and Hawks beat Madlax 2020 easily. Madlax is nowhere near the same level as those teams. Madlax was dominated and it would have been worse if it had been a longer game.
Caught most of the 2nd half of the VLC game and it was pretty even. I noticed VLC had to play Madlax right after their 1st game while it was the first game of the day for Madlax. Typical home cooking.
Madlax parents should be glad they are not playing clubs like NL and Hawks this spring. They would have gone winless.
And EVERYONE is missing key kids this early in the season.
