You didn't need to see a birth certificate to see that Laxechusett's & Bethesda had older kids on their teams. The standings are below.

Laxechusett's
Express
Bethesda
Primetime
91


Agreed with above. Overall, any one of these games could have went the other way. Very competitive games. I do agree that the Bethesda and Laxachusett's boys appear to eat many more vegetables than the LI kids, as they amazingly are 4"-6" taller and have far more developed athleticism than the 9-10 year olds playing on the the LI teams.

my son's team played both and there may have been a slight athleticism edge with a few kids but not sure it can be attributed to age as hold backs don't start to middle school if I am not mistaken. will make for competitive summer and great games. game is growing and better athletes are coming. my older kids teams never had issues with them at this age group. all the games were competitive, better this way.

Good competition this weekend at Lax Fest. I think 4 teams were 3-1 going into the playoffs.

Going to be some good competition at this age. Express - Haugen, 91 Storm, and Igloo are all great games every time played....

Hopefully better than the 4th and 5th grade brackets last year where there were only 4 teams in each division. Its basically 2-3 Express teams for each division... and they'll still brag about winning a championship when their squads make up 75% of the bracket.

The AA division looks fairly solid. May see a rematch from NLF with Laxachusetts and Express Haugen there. The A division has the usual second tier teams.

I agree. The entire tournament looks solid. I wasn't expecting to see such a nice tournament lineup.

Exactly. Same old stuff with these 91 and Express backed tourneys. Get another W for their top teams so they look dominant and people pay money to come to a tryout because they want to be a part of it. Give them credit... the numbers at tryouts shows it works.

Not much chatter on here regarding this age group. Season has wrapped up for most part and there were a few different champions across the tourneys. Express seemed to take a few, 91 and Outlaws had a couple (granted different brackets). Couple others grabbed one. Other than Lax Fest, didn't seem like many of the top teams were ever in the same tourneys together. Saw some kids who were really on their game already. Going to be interesting to see how this group stacks up come 5th and 6th grade. Tryouts (and changes) around the corner. Coaching changes, new teams, etc. Let the fun begin...

There are a few A teams only. Town teams have been beating "B" teams. If any of the other parents are like me, they are probably waiting for the other teams to develop a little more before committing time, money, etc. Maybe this upcoming year more talent tries out?

Thinking Haugen's A Express team is on top right now (and no, not an Express parent). Too many kids on the team but, the ones they have and play, are solid. 91 Orange Storm isn't far behind.

There are only really 4 A teams; Express Haugen, 91 Storm, Legacy and Igloo. Any others would get blown out by any of these 4. Express and 91 go back and forth, but are the top 2 and have very large rosters.

Being an A team and playing in the A bracket are two different things. Legacy is not an A team. That's like saying the Outlaws are an AA team because they played in that bracket for Lax Clash.

Express plays Igloo well, Igloo plays 91 well, Express vs 91 is a free for all every time. Games have been blow outs on either side and 1 goal games often. These 3 will continue to put on a good show for next few years. Legacy has slipped a bit, but has some kids that can certainly play. Express did end the Spring strong with wins over some big out of state teams (Lax, Beth, PT, Eclipse...) 91 did well also out of state at end of season. Have fun at the tryout circus!

Laxachusetts won the NLF beating LI Express Haugen twice (including the final). They went 3-0 at LaxClash before losing to LI Express by 1 goal in semis (great game). They won the Young Guns tourney in MD beating the Annapolis Hawks (in a great final), Madlax Capital, Cannons Selects and Tigers 2026 (Philly). I would say from what I saw that the top 3 teams are Laxachusetts, Li Express and Annapolis Hawks, not in any particular order.

Based on what I watched throughout the year, I would also put Express Haugen as the top team also. 91 and Igloo would follow behind.

Somewhere between 70-90 kids at 91 camp/tryout... 4 different teams moving between scrimmages with 18+ on each. A good chunk of those kids couldn't catch/throw a ball. Some kids there just for the "camp" aspect... $165 for full day plus lunch and a pair of shorts... can't beat the price. Didn't seem like they were evaluating much of anything. More like a practice with coaches and existing players running set plays. Good for their business though. Even with just 70 kids paying, it's almost $12,000 for one age group.

Need some consolidation on the top end. Talent wise will be tough to matchup with some of out of state teams if things stay the same...

91 and Express both beat out of state teams on the regular. I would bet that neither team's roster will change very much at all next season.
