NJ parent here - Baltimore deserved to win and their performance the entire 2 tournaments showed it. Their defense was relentless and super high pressure and they dominated the draw across the board. Their shots on goal were blistering and nearly impossible to stop. They also did all the little things right - TEAM play, very few turnovers, no bad passes, first to the GBs. Their girls were bigger, faster and more athletic. Kudos.
How dare you Defense and Ground Balls as a reason for winning? Going to goal is what matters, putting the ball in the net is what's important.
