Wishful thinking Express Dad!

Express played great. I'd say this was from a team that didn't win as much as they thought they would.[/

We spoke to other parents. They admit the kids are on grade but older because of age cut offs. Never going to change until US Lacrosse goes to an on age format.

I detest the holdback talk on here, but don't the majority of states use Sept 1, or Oct 1 while NY uses Dec 1? What's the big deal? A true holdback is one thing, but are you complaining about September and October babies ???

Honestly, the majority of holdbacks are not September and/October babies that just miss the cutoff. Either way, the rules allow it and the kids have to play regardless. There can be huge differences in physical maturity at this level, but it will eventually even out. The kids gotta keep working and the most skilled players will win out in the long run. It's also why the interest in the WS is typically high because it tests the kids vs. their "on age" peers. It may only be 1 tournament, but it's an event that clearly separates the best 13U team from everyone else.

Yes, top two for sure and after that it's essentially ties:
3/4 tie (I think Towerman would have beaten Tigers)
5/6 tie (Sweetlax for sure over Madlax)
7/8 tie (probably say Igloo at 7 and Primetime at 8 for this weekend)

So Obsessed with 13 yr old lacrosse . WHY ?

You must not understand competitive sports. Some people like to know who the best teams are or maybe how well their sons team is doing in relation to the rest of the pack.

Crickets

Lost 2 games by a combined 3 goals, to the supposed 1 and 2 or 2 and 3 or whatever, missing our best middie and our stud attackman. With 3 practices under our belts. I see all that WSYL practices, year round practices and 5 or 6 tourneys already played, are paying off. See you in a couple of weekends.

Tough draw on Saturday for Laxachusetts. Good luck.

Let the shenanigans begin! The tournament is tainted from the top down. Not a difficult process creating the brackets. It’s very simple. Top down based on rankings. Guessing brackets will change several more times before the event. The whining and jockeying for position has started! Stay tuned!

I know i played college soccer and my son is 2026 Lax player . Give 2/3 years and it will be totally different. Most kids haven’t it puberty yet or start working out with weights . Relax on the rankings and enjoy the time now . No one giving $5k scholarships yet .

Uh, it just looks like the time changed a little on Friday.

Being as objective as possible:
1. Hawks
2. Express
3. Towerman/Tigers
5. Sweetlax/Madlax
7. All the teams that went 2-1 in pool play: Primetime, Igloo, Jersey Express, Crabs, PA Roughriders

It remains to be seen if the Towermen that played at the NAL, are the same team that shows up at the WS. Remember, they didn’t actually qualify but got an invite after another team dropped out. It’s quite possible they'll have players missing from this past weekend. Strong lineup all across the board.

What happened to BBL? They used to be a top 2026 team a few years ago, no?

Many teams at WS will be missing some players from NAL. Tigers I know for sure have a couple players they brought on recently and play on and off for them but are needed at WS.

I like how the parents “admit” the kid’s ages. Just stop. It’s not a trial. It’s a game. Who starts a friendly conversation asking if players are over age? Sounds like B S. Because it is.

A number of the stronger players appear to be now playing for Towermen.

Towerman roster already locked in for WS. New players are holdbacks.
