Dave had to tighten the bench up to beat a tough Philly team. Long Island won even if some girls didn't get an opportunity to play its the nature of a competitive lacrosse game.

The competition at AS was great! College coaches were there and watching all the girls play. It was about getting seen. Girls played great and had super competition. Was a great event for the girls.

There were no coaches there on Saturday. They all left for UA. Did not watch any of the semis, consolation games or championships.

Not true

Great coaching having the best players on the field was the key to the victory.

Exactly! Good for UA and the coaches for bringing home the win. A shame the AS team didn’t have a coach who knew how to win a game. There were many girls on the UA team that didn’t see the the field in the championship and that’s ok. If you leave your best players out there, they will make mistakes and even get cards, but will find a way to win the game! All the girls were thrilled in the end to go home winners! Congratulations!

Hmmm, the 22s and 23s that “did not see the field” in championship game I can’t imagine are really all that thrilled!? The coaches there did not get to see them play in their recruiting year! Coach thinks …They are not good enough to play in a championship game? That stinks , but they got medals? And a blurb for resume… great, I guess?

Not everyone gets a participation trophy.

The problem is that several girls on both UA and AS were really not very good players, and should not have been on an all-star type of team. They made the team due to politics. When it came to playing, they hurt the team because they could not play at a high level and took terrible slow shots into the goalie's stick, were too slow to pick up a ground ball, or constantly turned the ball over every time they touched it. What is baffling, is the amount of playing time some of these girls got over clearly better players. Do you really think that type of play was helping them get recruited?

“Dave” had to tighten his bench to win, because he omitted some of the best players on LI to begin with from the team. (DUKE). UA selections were flawed once again. Plenty of amazing talent on LI. I would think any girl “selected” to represent at UA is of the caliber to play in a championship game. Truth being, “they” were showcasing a few, and playing politics.

Too bad it didn't occur to Ryan to do that. AS was totally winnable, but rotating in girls who let up goals in a semi-final was a killer!

Came down to best attacker trying to tie game and missing shot. Team would not have been put into that position if the best players stayed on the field. A couple of proven attackers watching game from sideline the team breakdown. No plan

Watched the game, didn’t think the Philly team was very tough at all. They had one player just like UA

Must feel good bringing home the “ship” when you did Not have to play CT (Grizzlies) and top talent at AS. Watered down competition.

No patients. Plenty of time. Should not have shot. Could have found a good shot instead of right at goalie. Coach could have tightened bench to win for sure but played all.

While you're right the results of both tournaments would've been different if played on different weekends, you play the teams in front of you.. LI won, give credit where its due. Not sure why they felt the need to "tighten the bench" against a team they beat by 7 the day before.

How about this folks. Some kids had a great experience at either AS or UA. Some kids didn't. Some kids got cut or made the teams based on politics some didn't. Some families have the time and money to do these events some don't. Some kids will get recruited by the schools they hope for, some won't. College coaches look at a body of work through out a year which can include HS games, club games, showcases, "elite teams" such as AS and UA , camps and other showcases. Anyone of these can be the one that gets you on the list to start the conversation. So lets all hope that the kids enjoy whatever path they and their families choose. The only reason this debate exists is FOMO. It will all work out no matter what path you choose. College coaches are smart people. They know what to look for and they don't care what venue they see it at as long as they see it. As we see there are still 22's committing as of today. It all works out, for some it's quick for some it takes some time.

It took the team awhile to mesh. Not a lot of passing going on in the beginning and lots of wide open players with opportunities to score were missed, lots of turnovers All good players all deserved to be there. They def could have won

Well said!! Good luck to ALL the LI girls in their recruitment years! We are fortunate to have such great lacrosse on LI and plenty of opportunities with different clubs. There really does seem to be a place for everyone. That’s a good thing.
