Point being that the MIAA privates don't have it so easy in terms of assembling talent - they are just good at developing and coaching the talent that they get and 99 times out of 100 will beat any NY public despite their challenges of putting teams together. You can say what you want about the NY publics but they can't match up with the upper echelon of the MIAA. The only league that can possibly compare is the NE West 1 - another private league with Deerfield, Brunswick, Avon and Salisbury. The NY publics couldn't compete with those schools either - trust me on that.


Well 99 out of 100 nearly happened 3 times this weekend... Too funny.


And most of those private school teams are stacked with 19 year olds.


Looks Port Washington, another LI public gave Calvert Hall all they could handle in a close one. I guess LI publics can and do compete well with the Mighty MIAA.


Still not beating the MIAA though.


There were four games I'm aware of between LI publics and MIAA teams. 2 wins and 2 loses for each. Usually when a team loses it means that the team that won "beat" the other team. With that said, these games shouldn't even be close. MIAA schools recruit players, and are loaded with re-class, holdbacks and 19 year olds. (LI publics have nearly zero 19 year olds) LI publics have to assemble a team from the kids that live in a small geographic area. In many cases a few square miles. MIAA teams should be winning these games by 10 plus goals. Perhaps the MIAA is just a tad bit overrated...

Don't get confused by scores, logic or facts MIAA is better then everybody else, not because they can draw from a larger area, not because their kids are a year older it is because they are better then everybody else, always have been always will be......just ask them

Watched Port in several winter league games and came away extremely impressed with their speed and transitions. They will be a force to be reckoned with (from a GC guy)

Whitman beats Pat Med 8-2- not impressive.

Goalie with 21 saves 2 goals against, thats impressive.

This should surprise anyone. LI dominates the college scene. About 15% of all D1 mens lacrosse players are from LI. The only thing that I saw as a college player that made the Balti teams better was superior coaching and long standing lacrosse traditions. Long Island has more kids and better athletes. Plus, Long Island kids are not afraid to take the body!! The club scene has helped to make our HS programs stronger.

I've got to think God roots for Chaminade being that the St. A's boys have been inappropriately taught to pray in a three-point stance as opposed traditional kneeling preached at Chaminade...

lets talk about Whitman after they play East (Smithtown and Hills)

Their schedule is full of Jv caliber teams. 8 of the 13 games left should not be a challenge. (Your season comes down to Smtithown East / west, Hills East, WI, Northport not your fault sect 11's)

What's wrong with Smithtown West and their schedule?

They seem to be ducking some of the early heavyweights on their schedule(Bronxville & Garden City)...maybe they are not ready.

I know snow, cold, locusts, fire, etc. Some day they gotta play and show what they have.

Keep on playing the cupcakes - then claim to be the best.

Which teams are on your list for quality competition? Who are they playing in the near future that will test them?
