Thanks Crabs f/o dad. Everyone who watched them play in the fall league knows they added 2025 players from the their own 2025 team. Gotta do what ya gotta do to win.
For what it is worth, I spoke in the parking lot briefly with the Crabs f/o Dad and the player after my son's team played against them and he did not seem the type to come on this board and brag about his son's f/o accomplishments. I could be totally wrong but I am generally a good judge of stuff like that.


I spoke with him after the game. Very nice guy and going to Gilman speaks highly of the young man off the field

And IS a Holdback.

Yes, very.......

Would be 10-0 Hawks.


Hawks almost lost to crabs. Looneys beat crabs twice. Come back to reality... It would be a good game with the score within 2 either way.

Almost, maybe, but they never trailed and won by 2.

Looneys DID lost to VLC.

Hawks have beaten VLC 3 times in the last 2 months by 7, 6 and 4.

when did Looneys beat the Crabs?

No excuses for Looney’s losing. VLC scored with 15 seconds left.

I am not sure where you have been but Looney’s beat crabs in the HOCO season twice. One being for the championship.
13-8 and ?

Just like Hawks lost to Tigers, sometimes it doesn’t go your way.

Looneys also beat VLC this fall... twice, I think.

Much respect to the Hawks team.

7. VLC
8. Next Level

I don't think NextLevel considers itself part of this discussion, at least for now. Yesterday it played in the lower division against the BLC and MadLax B teams, and actually had a 4-2 game against the Madlax B team. My guess is that they want no part of the Hawks, Crabs, etc.

MadLax and 91 are hard to peg because, far as I know, they have not played Hawks, Looneys, Crabs, BLC, or VLC lately. Does anybody know if Madlax or 91 has played one of those five in the fall, or is scheduled to play them?

And BLC is hard to place because of the "famous five" on injured reserve. Even at full strength they do not seem equal to Hawks, Crabs, or Looney's, but it is hard to say how they stack up to MadLax, VLC, and 91. Keep in mind that other teams are down players too and will get them back in the spring.

Too bad you are the one with the misunderstanding.......
Mesa at Summer Exposure was the Mesa Pa team. Listed as the Severna Park team but every parent I spoke with on the sidelines was from the Philly area. It was Mesa Pa at summer exposure, not the SP team. The SP team had not even officially formed at the time.

Who knows, and who cares, whether it was the PA or SP Mesa team? Obviously VLC had a big win in their first game and a big let down in their second game. But having watched the Mesa team play yesterday, they are not bad at all. They are well coached and had a great goalie (no, I am not the goalie Dad). They were good enough to smack down a good VLC team when it did not bring its A game, and good enough to play Looneys and Crabs without being totally blown out. I'd say that puts them in the top 20 in the country. Wherever that Mesa team is from, good on them for playing in an extremely competitive field and going 1-2.

So a team that is 1-7 in two tournaments should now be top 20, dream on lol. A parent told me yesterday they lost all their games since summer except vlc, and many players are older.

Get real. If you could only beat VLC by 4, how would you beat Looneys by 10? And, if you actually were 10 goals better than your closest competition, then why are you playing in 2026 at all? Why not move up to 2025 where your team would have closer games and where many of your players belong anyway.

Isn't Looney's goalie 14 and didn't they have to steal one yesterday from FCA yesterday to even play. Let's slow the 2025 talk down because it sounds like without one. You would be in trouble.

According to the rumors, he has been 14 for 2 years. Their goalie was injured so they had a guest player.

They bring older kids and still lose all the time?

Not a BLC parent and I did not see the games, but I don't think anything "happened" to BLC. They went 0-3 against Hawks, Crabs, and Looneys, one of which has always been dominant, and two of which became dominant this fall due to roster upgrades. All three would be in the top 6-7 nationally (if not higher) if a new ranking were done today. Aside from Looney's one goal loss to VLC yesterday, I don't think that Hawks, Crabs, or Looneys have lost a single game to anybody besides each other since their fall upgrades. Bethesda (who does have some injuries, by the way, ) is a legitimate top 10-15 team nationally, but there is no shame nor surprise that Bethesda played those three teams in one day and went winless.

It wasn't that they went winless, they looked horrible doing it. Lacked skill at every single position on the field except for 1 defenseman.

So the #1 team in the Country only beat a team 8-3 that lacks skill except for 1 kid. Gotta be Hawks Dad here considering that one kid is the one they are trying to steal from us. Good luck in the future once puberty hits.

My wife pointed out during the Hawks v Crabs game that #22 of the Hawks who has been the teams top player for years was not playing in yesterday’s game. It was a great game played by many solid players. This being said I would love to see him on the field next time these two teams play one another.

If true, that's sad. And they still lost yesterday and in the fall league? Great decision parents.

Just tell your son to give up lax now if you rely on your wife for intel. I hear the local chess club is looking for new members.
