Not sure why the confusion. Both teams are very talented and play good lacrosse. Both teams were also missing a top offensive player so no excuses there. It seems you are familiar with the North team but maybe get familiar with PT and you will realize. Your opinion is your opinion so can't change that but objectively there's not much of a difference between both teams except the head to head match ups They tied each other in 2015 and PT won this. Maybe next year it's different result but that won't change the fact both teams are talented in good programs.
PT 2019 is a very good team and on Sunday they outplayed Express North. However, I think these 2 teams will be very similar to the 2018's and on any given day either team can win.
I think PT being in more tourneys with tough teams will help them. They are now having the opportunity to do that. North has been there already there with Express' inclusion in NLF. Beating a rival is nice - but the measuring stick of progress for both programs should be beating Madlax, 91, Laxachusetts, Crabs, HHH.
