Yes. Watch out for looneys!! Picked up several forest hill rec kids and a Hereford rec kid
And where did your son(s) play before joining a club team? I love how these parents and COACHES will bash other clubs for bringing in talented kids from rec programs in order to make their clubs look superior. My guess is these kids will work just as hard if not harder to prove they can play at this level. Nice job Looneys!!! I believe those rec kids ran the table at Platinum Cup and and beat FCA and Madlax on way.
true story...Looney's ran through FCA (the nation's best defense look beatable) and Madlax last weekend, any rebuttal?
My son is on a team that played Looney's, FCA and MadLax at Platinum Cup. And for that tournament at least, Looney's was definitely a step above FCA and MadLax. FWIW
WCS is the only team that played all 3 at Platinum Cup...good try, Looneys Dad. Madlax was the best of those 3 coming from a dad whose son played 2 of the 3.
Love, Madlax Dad (not really, but I know that'll be the assumption)
My son plays for WCS. MadLax and Looney's I thought were comparable squads. But for that event, I thought Looney's had the edge. On another day, it could certainly be different. Its also possible that WCS played better against MadLax which is impacting my judgment. I have no axe to grind. We lost to both teams and beat FCA. We had a more competitive game with MadLax than with Looney's. But both were certainly good teams and teams that were very close in overall ability.
It was a good experience for a bunch of California kids to play some good teams from Maryland and we appreciated the opportunity. We also played BLC in November and played VLC and Crabs at Young Guns. We look forward to playing against all of these squads in the future. No axe to grind...all good teams with some very talented players. Maybe we will see some of you in the Fall at Gold Cup in Delaware? I am sure all of those teams will continue to improve either through player development of player acquisition and WCS will attempt to do the same (with no team practices, the player development.
At some point maybe I will give an "outsiders" ranking of the best teams we have played from the Maryland area. We have not played the Hawks, but I am sure they would beat us soundly.
