Skywalkers were much better team than MDU East. GK kept them closer than it could have been but MDU just not as talented/fast as SW.

MDU needs to figure out how to consistently win the draw. They have a lot of strong players and they can compete with the top if they can figure out the draw.

MDU parent here. Cannot agree with the more talent or fast comment. Yes, to a more cohesive TEAM. SW's offense was a thing of beauty. Roll the cage, dump back to X, roll the cage, dump back to X, roll the cage, dump back to X and then last girl reverse and and set low (sometimes moving and blind) pick. Worked like a charm and the SW team executed it very well.

Difference in the game was the dropped balls by MDU players and turnovers by back half of bench in the first half. They were not competitive getting the ball down the field until they moved some players around to let them "try" other positions. I think it was 5-0 at one point and 5-1 at half. Second half was a different story.

SW killed MDU girls on the draw. Not so much with the other games this season. Spoken like a parent whose kid doesn't do the draw and ignores the turnovers a few girls consistently make.

You can definitely tell which teams consistently work on the draw and with players around the circle.

I think SW is starting to spread the draw out a bit between different girls on the team. Maybe a good thing.

Whether your kid does the draw or not it's pretty obvious winning the draw is a major part of the game. Also, winning the draw and trying to go straight to goal at this level and causing turnovers is ineffective. At this point Suzy goes to goal should be over with.

Having a few different girls do the draw is a good thing imo. Most teams have 2-3 girls that consistently take the draw. Not one that primarily does it with a few sprinkled in here and there. Their results speak for themselves. Just look at the NGLL rankings.

You are correct, it has to be your BEST two girls doing it and progressively getting better each time they do it.

Can Stars light blue hold onto 3rd spot in the blue division? Big games this weekend for Stars. Can LBC get back into the mix? Big game Stars vs M&D red feels like elimination game for playoffs.

SW tryouts are for the money. You need to be invited to the secret tryouts where they recruit players from other clubs during the season (MND, NEMs, Heros).

I had always heard rumors that this club did this, but never really believe it. One of my daughter's teammates switched to SW mid season and I was shocked. Now I can't wait to see if they can hold onto her for next season. That would be telling about their program.
