There’s only 27 True teams so one of them is bound to be ranked

Got to watch some action on the 2029s today at the Maryland Lacrosse Fall Tournament which was a great fall event. Many teams seemed to be up and down on players throughout the day probably due to other sports conflicts. 100% expected in the fall.

Tier 1
Madlax - Great chemistry displayed throughout the event. Great offensive movement. Only going to get better and better.

Tier 2
BLC - Solid team with lots of all around talent. They were neck and neck with Madlax.
Next Level - A narrow loss to Madlax. Going to be awesome to watch Madlax, Bethesda, and Next Level slug it out all year long as they battle for NOVA.
FCA - Appeared to have a lot of new players. Held their own against BLC, but were short handed against Madlax. Will be interesting to see if they will gel, rise towards the top, or flop.

Tier 3
Predators - Saw a ton of Team 91 (MD) helmets on their roster. Only scoring 1 goal against upper level talent (Next Level, FCA) is not going to cut it. Reminder...first year team with tons of upside to grown and improve.
VLC - Brand new team, will look to develop as the season goes.

Moving FCA down a Tier might make sense based on the scores. VLC might deserve Tier 4 to themselves.

The only difference between Preds and VLC is that people expected/hoped Preds would flop out of the gate (which......more like they just reaffirmed they are not an elite club) and, the same people - with no evidence really - expected/hoped VLC would magically put a competent elite team together in 6 weeks, which they did not. Both are regional expansion teams and both had the same kind of day against elite/AAA competition. Both clubs will be fine at the 2029 level. Unless they think they are playing elite ball in the spring.

From what I heard, Preds 2029 is mostly Team 91 MD 2029s from last year as their coach left and came over? Any truth to that based on what you saw this weekend?

Where does that leave Team 91 MD this year?

The Team 91 2029s is almost a whole new team. Yes Preds 2029 is mostly the Team 91 from last year.

I am FCA 2029 dad. Our team is almost half Crabs kids, another half is the 29/30 FCA from last year and a couple others mixed in so it is very new. This weekend at Maryland Lacrosse Fall Tournament was their first games together. We did not even have a scrimmage before Madlax Capital got a chance to unload on us in the first game. Considering the second game was Bethesda Blue that was 5-2, it seems very good for the 2029 FCA moving forward. But only time will tell.

Tier 0 would be Annapolis Hawks by a long shot. Everybody starts a tier below them.

Madlax Cap 29 handily beat the Hawks for the NAL championship in a pretty much Madlax controlled game. Then Hawks won in Hershey in sudden death OT where Madlax Cap 29 was playing without their #1 defender. Pretty evenly matched team. Great kids on both.

DMV located, non-ML29 dad here. So take this for what it's worth.

I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the 29 NAL and Hershey games. With a full complement ML is pretty hard to beat at the moment, and as noted above the Hershey game was a barn burner. This will be a battle to watch for years to come...much like the other ML and Hawks age groups.

I would add that ML29s recruited two stud BLC kids (twins) this fall which has tightened up their already ridiculously strong defense even further and added new legs to the midfield.

Opponents should be prepared to play a club that has matured very quickly.

Limited experience in club lax but I’m gonna go ahead and presume hawks picked up a couple new toys also.

Gotta be honest, until 5th or 6th grade it seems like glorified bobble head ball anyway. The next two years will tell us who is what and the real story.

That said, the 29 pool was thin last year and I think (could be wrong) that the hawks beat ML like 5 out of 6 times. BLC 6 times or more. And next level several times (3-4 maybe).

Pretty hard to beat any good team twice in a year. Let alone 3-6 times. So you have to assume ML found a tendency and finally exposed it. Only to lose the next one.

Gonna be a VERY interesting season I’m thinking. And maybe we shouldn’t sleep on some of the others like true who was the best losing team in the 29 bracket last year.

And if BLC lost two studs, does someone leapfrog them?

Should be fun to see play out!
