Ummmm, assuming you’re asking which teams looked good during the opening weekend… I’d say that nothing shocking happened during the first games. Lots of good lacrosse was played!

Skywalkers is new and doesn’t appear to have been close to M&D though I did hear the first half was within a few goals and M&D was better organized in second half (hearing that second hand). It’s one week, though, so really hard to say how it will all shake out.

Remember Skywalkers always has its 3-5 best fifth graders playing up. They are never competitive at this age.

Agreed. Would also add that the 30 degree weather, hail, wind, etc… that a number of teams faced makes the results a bit murky, regardless of team or is they won or lost. Should start to become more clear after this weekend.

No need for indoor leagues anymore if these girls can play through last weekend.

Actually, looking at schedules this weekend, I still don't think Heros, Coppermine, MDU or M&D will be tested. MDU v Skywalkers, Coppermine v Integrity, Heros v Pride, and M&D v Limelight. I expect to be easier wins for MDU, Coppermine, heroes and M&D this weekend. More looking forward to those 4 playing each other which doesn't seem to happen until later in the season.

This proved to be right based on Tourney Machine scores fron this past weekend. Coppermine 12-6 over Integrity, MDU 15-4 over Skywalker's, Hero’s 12-3 over Pride and 15-6 over NL, and M&D 11-3 over Limelight.

Head to heads later this season should be good.

Any surprises or predictions now that some teams have four games under their belt? Looks like the top 4 (MDU, Hero’s, M&D, Coppermine) and then everyone else.

Coppermine ends the season with Hero', M&D & MD United in consecutive weeks.

Why is M&D off for 20 days from 4/3 - 4/23?

They're one of the favorites. There's no clear-cut favorite among the top 4 teams in my opinion (Coppermine Black, Hero's Green, M&D Black, Maryland United East) and they're the only undefeated teams right now.

Heros and M&D are co-favorites. I'd give Heros the edge since they won at mid-atlantic. MDU and Coppermine are next level down. Could beat top two on any given day, but would be an upset for sure.

What teams were in the playoffs last year and who won the league? Not the most recent offseason tourney is the deciding factor.

MDU, Coppermine, M&D, and Hero’s were in the playoffs last year.

MDU defeated Coppermine 8-7 and Hero’s defeated M&D 11-6 in the two semi games. Hero’s beat MDU 10-8 in the finals.

Agree with Heros and M&D at top (both very balanced and deep, play team ball well and are fast and athletic), followed by MDU and Coppermine.
Last year, Coppermine went 8-0 in season and lost in first round of playoffs to MDU.
Also, last year is no indication as many teams have lost and replaced talent through tryouts and offseason.

In that case, I'd say Hero's is rightfully the favorite

Hero's gave Coppermine its first loss today and it wasn't even a close one. Curios to see how the other head to heads shake out.

Can't believe it's almost the end of the regular season.

Best units so far?

Does anyone pick up additional talent for summer tourneys?

Any B Clubs make the jump to A and vice versa?

M&D has separated itself from the pack. Not even close.

MDU is close, but M&D is clear top team. MDU has a chance in playoffs if it doesn't play its bench.

With two already past middle school, I can tell you with certainty, all this will change drastically once they hit 8th grade or so.
Enjoy it now as much as possible because the gauntlet will be coming in just a few years.

I don't know - 1 goal is pretty close. It's not like M&D is blowing teams out - they could easily lose in the playoffs

I think M&D had to go to OT to beach Hero's green. I don't think there's a ton separating the top 3 (MDU, Hero's, M&D). What happened to coppermine? Didn't expect them to have 2 losses at this point in the season. They may make playoffs but not sure if it depends on how they do this weekend and how Next Level does?

That is a tough schedule for a new team. They could be like Skywalkers and not care about Ws and Ls so much, just trying to give the girls an opportunity to see what the competition is like. Who knows.

If Coppermine and NL were to end up both 5-3, Coppermine wins the tie breaker with the head-head win.

Regardless of the score, M&D knows how to close out games.

How come NEMS didn't play in the regular season? Did they do any warm-up games prior to jumping into tournaments?

On their website they only have 10 players on their roster. Assuming these 10 played rec and they are hoping to fill the rest of the roster with other rec players.
