I thought that Zingos would do a little better as well. They may have a couple of kids from their squad who missed the age requirement and that may have made the difference. I expected them to win at least one, maybe 2 games in pool play.

Breakers had a tough go of it. They did not score one goal on Saturday, and lost to Zingos on Sunday.

I thought that Cannon's might do slightly better than they did. They went 3-0 and pool play. They lost to Black Ops in the first round of championship play. If anyone should be angry about the formation of super-teams (Black Ops, Top Caliber (Top Caliber and Team Maryland), and MadLax), it should be Cannon's, as they got bumped out of the final 4 by Black Ops). Sold team. They may have been dejected after losing to Black Ops and ended up losing to Garden State in the next game , who they beat handily in pool play.

Top Caliber was disappointing, their normal team and Team Maryland's are much better than the combined WSYL team - that tells me that they have a lot of older kids on their HOCO/Summer tournament teams.

BBL was the men among boys in this tournament. Not only were they bigger, but they acted a lot older than 14 year olds - they acted like the college players that you see on ESPN/ACC Network. Also, quite a bit of trash talking by the kids during the game, the coach "Run up the score", and the parents on the sidelines.. f bombs galore.

True Annapolis is very quick and well coached. Lanky, athletic kids. They will go far as they get older and fill out and gain mass. Their only losses over the weekend were to BBL.

Glad to see the kids playing lacrosse again - great to be out there amongst the hustle and bustle of a tournament.

" They may have a couple of kids from their squad who missed the age requirement..." So let's dispense with the nonsense that Zingos can compete with on-age teams since they by definition have holdbacks.

The OP had an astute post about the weekend and from what I saw I agree. Cannons surprised me too and thought they would come out as the dark horse, BBL observations on point, True A legit. didn't see Breakers, Zingos blew a tie in the one game I saw but solid otherwise.... Popcorn ready for the dad whose team was not there and is angry with a certain club for some reason

VLC Black Ops (3-0)
Jersey Express (3-0)

TriState not good and they will go 0-3 and another team slips in..Zingos or Cannons?

Top 4 teams are Black Ops, BBL, MadLax and True in that order.

Breakers has been advertising and pumping up this “WSYL team” for about 3 years now. So much for that. But guess it was good for their kids to get a chance to play there. Even if they got shellacked. They will be able to feel better about themselves this summer when they get to control their draw in Aloha tourneys.

Zingo's , Breakers can get off rec teams and move to elite teams.

2025 Mad Dog Black needs to decide what they are going to do moving forward. They cannot acquire any more talent than what they have and are heading towards the team just staying together because they are friends. NJ has some good High School teams in BBL, LE and Tri State. Should be interesting to see what the kids do on this team because there are at least 8 kids that are really good.

Felt bad for Mad Dog 2025. They clearly drew the short straw from the schedulers having to face Black Ops (tight loss in overtime), Jersey Express and Monuments. They were better than their 0-3 day one reflected.

True Annapolis - 2025 - they are a quality team. They played dirty at times though. On Saturday... Ball was at midfield going toward True's defensive end. True attackman comes from behind the opposing team's long pole (in front of the opposing team's goal, far away from the play), and slashes him, breaks his wrist, out of the game, probably out of the tournament. Play stopped for 5-10 minutes while the golf cart came on the field and took the hurt kid off the field.

Humorous/entertaining tidbits from the tournament:

Cheap shot of the day: Above mentioned slash by True Annapolis attackmen coming from behind and breaking a pole's arm away from the play.

Awards for "What were you thinking?"
1) WSYL organizers: putting the game film camera scaffolding 6 feet from the sidelines. Within 5 minutes of the first game, player from one team pushes a sprinting a midi out of bounds at mid-field and the midi goes crashing directly into the metal scaffolding and tears up his legs on the old fashioned wheels. Kid's legs are beat up, but no concussions from hitting the metal scaffolding. Parents then move the scaffolding farther away from the sideline.
2) WSYL organizers (again) - not marking the center out of bounds lines with a pylon/marker. As a result, multiple kids run out of bounds, thinking that the out of bounds was another painted line 6 feet away. Parents spoke up and a marker was put on the midfield line.
3) FCA Upstate U13 coaches - Warming up for their next game in the 10 feet of space between the shooting nets and the end lines, while a game was going on the field. Balls going out on the field, game players distracted and confused. They are soon directed to an adjacent open field.

Other humorous stories/tidbits are welcomed.

Will the WSYL kids be able to tryout for the UA All American showcase? Looks like the days overlap for the DC tryout. Has anyone had the guts to ask if players will be excused from the festivities to tryout?

Good for you. "Humorous and entertaining," indeed.
