The 1st 2 quotes above are too petty to address. As for DC "overwhelming" their opponents, I'll address only the 2d Balto game. DC fielded a good squad, but they beat the Balto boys with considerable help from their opponents. For reasons that are hard to fathom, Baltimore suffered a near-total “team” collapse - no "team" offense, no "team" defense, sloppy passing, poor shot selection, abundant and unnecessary penalties. The marginal of victory was 3 EMO goals. I give DC their due, but play 10 games and I see each team winning 5. Unlike the petty crowd, no knock on either team.


DC took out Balts best player in the first game. They weren't the same after that. Hope he's all right but know he sat out most of the tournament,[/quote]

Lol. Boy had an ankle injury and played the next day and in the semifinal. He was on social media within an hour after the first DC game saying he was fine. One player doesn’t make the team and I would disagree that he was the best player on the team. Grasping [/quote]

Reality: DC's Command team D was much better than the Baltimore Command's in the playoffs, Frankly, both Baltimore goalies made numerous door step saves to keep the margin at 3 (it easily could have been 5 or 6). During the playoff round, DC's team D didn't have many holes: super strong take away close Dmen, great individual and team D play by their two way middies, 3 skilled disciplined communicative LSMs and two outstanding and peaking/hot keepers. In addition to their great D play, the DC Command middies also out played their playoff opponents in unsettled and settled O. Baltimore's attack and face off game were both clearly formidable but DC did a great job matching up on them in the playoffs. My conclusion: coaching adjustments really matter at the higher levels.

"Super strong", "great", "skilled disciplined communicative", "outstanding and peaking/hot". Hot darn! Did we miss any superlatives?

All the Spalding Hawks already have full rides lined up to the finest schools. Daddy Hawk has it all planned out. Shouldn’t coaches be able to talk to them Sept 1st because most of the are actually 21s.

If those kids though losing in the MIAA was bad this year - just wait til next year - it’s gonna be worse. All the playoff teams are reloading. Do yourself a favor boys and get the heck out of there.

These haters were silent the entire 4 days after Baltimore beat DC in the first game, then went 4-0 to become the #1 seed with a bye in the first playoff round! DC was a great team, they did play a great playoff game and absolutely deserve the win. See how that works when you can compliment a team without being a hater? What the haters wont admit, or point out is that Baltimore did have 3 great players who were injured and limping through the games. Hawks/Spaulding players played great throughout the tournament, so did the Catonsville players, so did everyone else. The Baltimore injured attackman who scored several goals against DC in the first game, played mostly on the crease after that game because he could not plant and change directions, or dodge and distribute from X like he normally does due to his ankle injury. In the second game the penalties were 6-0 in favor of DC, despite several clear, loud slashes, a blatant trip and tons of heavy back and freehand checks by DC players, which drew quick flags against Baltimore!? Baltimore had 0 man up opportunities to DC's 6? Not even 1 bad call against DC? Baltimore's middies took several weak shots from outside that were essentially turnover passes to DC's goalies. DC's goalies also made some very good doorstep saves throughout the game and towards the end when it was a one goal differential, which along with a couple penalties, effectively killed Baltimore's rally attempt. DC played VERY good defense, their poles and midfielders were great in transition. DC was clearly hungry after their first loss to Baltimore and many Baltimore players absolutely showed up that morning more worried about the Championship game than the semi-final game. DC had a solid win earlier that morning and some momentum under their belt. If that game is played 10 times, Baltimore wins 5 times, probably even with injured players. BOTH teams were great and that is what you expect from 2 final 4 participants at the UA games. That's it in a nutshell, but haters have to hate to remain relevant!

I don't see someone complimenting a team, I see a whiner blaming officials and injury for the team's loss and overusing the word great. Just because they are close in ability doesn't make either of one them great, just equal. Don't worry, you will get them next year and if you don't it will be someone else's fault.

Then your reading comprehension needs work. Cant dispute the facts. Especially when it comes much easier for you to act like a giant DB on a High School lacrosse forum..

The Club and HS coach for B'more took all of their kids and buddies kids. Some of those boys are great players and many were just along for the ride. If the Baltimore coaches really wanted to win, vice rep their club and HS school players then they could have done just that. There were lots of big, strong, fast and talented athletes at the Baltimore call back game. What they chose was based off pure nepotism and many of those players were absolutely pathetic in comparison to the talent at the call back game. That is why Baltimore got their nose rubbed in sh#t and sent packing on their home turf once again.

Seems like the Hawks on the best D1 teams are sitting on the bench while the Hawks at the lest prestigious D1 programs are kicking butt. Which ones had help getting to accepted to the best D1 teams? hmmm....
