Exactly. Too much 1v1 and turnovers killed sw ! Coaches need to teach sharing the ball.

SW is much improved and strong at the draw but 3 pipe shots and mnd opting not to take the open goal shot at the end made the game closer then it should have been (score wise). MnD got a little too fancy at the end and should have put the game away. a heads up play by the defender kept it from going into ot.
Stalling the last 5 minutes helps too

Ok Anne. If you have the lead you can do this ! Your job is to get the ball away. It’s called protecting the lead and winning.

WHO CARES! Why are you all arguing about a play involving 8th graders? Nothing changes the outcome of the game. Just move on. You guys will play each other 10+ more times over the course of the next 4 years and the outcome will be different each and every time. Grow up and let these girls play and learn.

Mnd/sw should have been a 10-5 game. Even after mnd got smoked in draws, mnd couldn’t hit the net. And got more cards. Team effort grit defines winners. Also not putting the ball on the ground.

HOCO vs Stars -- This seems to be a toss up. NEMS should definitely win their last game.

You are most welcome, but
1. I am definitely not a NEMS dad
2. NEMS definitely won

They did play ok.

Not to take anything away from HoCo, but kind of sloppy all the way around from both teams from what I saw. The Skywalkers coach getting a yellow did not help their cause. SW seemed to have a small group of subs?

I can say this, the HoCo coach still has no clue how to run a draw and HoCo didn’t have much team offense. Heard several parents saying it would be great to have a real offense scheme like SW.

Watching the second half, I couldn’t believe how tired some of the players (middies I think?) were running the field. She must have run them into the ground? With a big bench, seems odd way to run lines. Amazing they beat SW given their coaching issues.

You’d think someone from the hoco program would come in and give her some guidance on how to coach on all these important facets of the game. Otherwise the parents who had enough will look someplace else.

You must not know lax. Skywalkers has no offense scheme. Called roll the ball out and who says they have good coaching there ? Congrats Hoco !

Who’s better ? Mnd , sw and heros has better talent. Coach must have to done something right to win today over that talent ans superior coaching. Besides the HOco director and 24 coach helps out with 25 too.

Congrats HoCo indeed. They won. Great job. It was not due to coaching.

That being said, ok pal. You are right. You know everything since I can honestly say what I see. I have nothing to do with SW so have no reason to be a fan boy.

What I have seen of SW is they run a good two man game, play to x, cut through middle, pass well, make extra pass Their clear and redefend was well done. They had a strategy for and worked the draw. Similar to other good teams.

What I have seen of HoCo is the HoCo coach would rather clog the middle, multiple cuts at once, put everyone above GLE, not maintain space, try to have one middie go to goal through four people, run the ball up on clear and not have a coherent redefend. They don’t work on draw at practice and have no strategy for draw.

I am not sure they have better individual talent for all players. Up to a certain number, but perhaps better overall talent? Maybe 6 or 8 on roster are close to equal but rest of HoCo are lower? Just my opinion.

Coaching makes a difference. Luck makes a difference too.

As said in earlier posts, someone thought SKywalkers had a short roster today. I don’t know if that made a true difference but seeing the two teams play, based on many years of playing and coaching the game, you can see difference in coaching. HoCo coaching is sub par.

They just do a lot of things that really top tier teams don’t do. Hope it resolves itself through better coaching and I think they can compete at the highest levels.

The director/24 coach is an assistant coach for 25 but not sure how much she coaches when HC is there. I think most parents would welcome a more active role for her.
