I think Eagle Stix is less talented than some of the others…but their offense is precise. They have picked our team apart from X hitting cutters. They also have the best (or one the best) draw girls in this class. She is tall and good…did not see her at fall tourney though, so who knows.

Good bet that it’ll be Aces versus the MD champ on TV Sunday. If it’s M&D, take them all day long. They have Aces number.

All depends on the draw. 4 teams clearly better than the rest -- ES, M&D, MadS, Aces. Assume they are put in different groups. I think whoever get Aces will have an easier road. Best performance was a tie against an undermanned YJ A with losses to MDU, Heros and M&D.

My guess is Robinson sports puts Aces in M&D's group for this reason. Hard to convince me that Eagle Stix and M&D aren't in crash course in the final


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If I were a Maryland team (assume M&D, Hero's or BLC for conversation purposes)....The order I would NOT want to play. And this is based off my daughter playing all 3 various times

Eagle Stix
Aces
Madskilz
YJ

All 4 are great. But for different reasons

Eagle Stix has a big draw girl. Who is really good. She was hurt in the fall...and her replacement was as good or better. They are technically sound. Passing is on point. They do not turn the ball over. And they are extremely patient. Talent wise you think you are better than them. Only to look up and you are down 3 with 5 minutes to go. They are a handful. It was surprising when M&D handled them with ease in NGLL final last year. But they came back a totally different team. Eagle Stix is the favorite to be in the final.

Aces plays fast. Their middies are skilled. The lefty who everyone knows is a beast. Small. But still a beast. And her penalty shot is a lethal weapon. Their main issue is goaltending (my opinion). Not horrible. But not elite. They can score quickly. My opinion is offensively they are right their with the best teams. Defense is a bit reckless. They wear helmets and play a bit careless sometimes. But I respect their game and they score quickly. M&D and Hero's played them a combined 6-7 times last year and they always seemed to lose by exactly 1 goal every time

Madskilz is fast. They play wide open. Fun to watch. Similar to Aces. But faster. Maybe not as technical. But you are going to get 48 (or however many minutes it is) of full effort from those guys. Did I mention they are really fast?

My only question is why is nobody talking about YJ? They are really good and have a heck of a top roster. Not very deep. But their top 12-14 is as good as anyone. They control the pace (similar to BLC)


Other regions are there for field trip only. Enjoy the sites.

My ranking among possible contenders to win the whole thing:

EagleStix
Hero's
M&D
Aces
Madskilz
YJ
BLC

Nobody else has a chance (no offense meant).

Will be easier once brackets are out. Good luck to all 6 Mid-Atlantic teams participating over the next 2 weekends.


No one is talking about YJ because they don't play in NGLL.

Agree with your assessments with one exception. Aces isn't close to as deep as the the rest of the teams. They have several starters -- a few defenders and one low attackers who would struggle to make a top 3 MD team. I think they get a bit overrated because #2 for them is probably the best 27 in the country. They have another really good attacker-- #4 and both of their other middle are very fast and can score.

To your point, they are reckless on both sides of the field, several of their attackers lead with their helmets and have seen multiple players get yellows for dangerous shots. They don't create as many turnovers in their ride as M&D, Heros, or Madskillz will. Only 27 team I have ever seen get 6 yellows in a game. (they still won).

My apologies for including YJ

Did not even realize they were not participating in NGLL

But they are certainly a top team and judging by the schedules out they are going to be at all the top tournaments

I cannot argue with your assessments as well. It's all just conversation based on opinion.

All of the teams mentioned above are fun to watch in their own unique way or style.

I am not sure why at this point that BLC is being discounted and all the glory is going to M&D.

Who has M&D beaten this year... NOBODY,,, they actually nearly lost to 2 competitive games they had this year, won the last one when the ball bounced off the goalie's back in the last second

Who has BLC beaten this year..... M&D..... and held them to 2 goals

So i would say right now BLC is a head in front of M&D, I am assuming that they will be playing next weekend where we can see if there is any improvement from M&D. But until then, BLC should be in-front of them

To be the best you have to beat the best and BLC did that.

I agree that BLC has played above expectations this season. Especially after all of the predictions of their downfall earlier this Spring by people on this board.

However, BLC did beat M&D last season only to get smoked by them in the final game. So let's be careful about saying they're the team to beat. It always comes down to the draw with BLC. They have a solid defense with a good goalie. But can they score enough.

Good teams beat each other. It happens. BLC is very good. M&D is very good.

But don't get wrapped up in one game.

Surprises happen all of the time. People's opinions are just that. Opinions. Teams like M&D and Hero's (as well as BLC) have proven track records. Last year M&D had the best year by anyone in the country. So they get the benefit of the doubt. This year it could be Hero's or BLC.

Relax. It will be ok

The real question about BLC / M&D Black will be who stays, who goes and where.

If you are bottom roster M&D B, you are obviously a very good player but probably not seeing the field a ton except in blowouts.

Do you stay or goes to lower tier program and play a ton?

I think this is a question for all of the top tier A teams. I would think, as the girls get older, it is tougher to make the move.

It has to be stressful. Knowing you are on one of the best teams but not a frontline starter. Only to go to a lower tier team and maybe not get the recognition or "shine" of the top teams

Ultimately, do what is best for your daughter. If she is happy, stay put (if she makes it through tryouts). Injuries happen. Could be a play away from being thrusted into a more prominent role.

And blowouts (in theory) should become less numerous as teams get older.

At the same time, if your daughter wants significant playing time, and you don't see it as attainable in the current situation, I would think you would want to make the jump now. Don't want to be the last one without a chair when the music stops.

I doubt many BLC girls go. Many are waiting for Capital tryouts in 14 months.

Agree, the longer you wait the harder it becomes to move and get established on a team. Can it happen down the road, of course!

End of the day, as a former player I always want to be on the field and compete. Couldn't imagine putting in all the work and ride the bench but as someone else mentioned, if the player is happy that is all that matters.

Agree with this. May lose 1-2 but I'd expect the group to remain intact.

Moving to Towson area in mid June and have 2 daughters (2027 and 2029) and looking for a good program. Our girls have been playing in Denver area for about 4 years but I know it is really serious here, any suggestions?

Yes their 27/28 teams are struggling but I’d put their program up against almost anyone in the country. Their recruiting is 10x better than Coppermine, nems, tlc, HoCo, LBC combined.

I'd have them attend clinics and try out for the following (in order)

1. Skywalkers
2. NEMS
3. TLC


If they play on Team 180 or Urban Elite, they can probably any of these teams.

Really depends what you are looking for.
Try out for more then one club so your daughter can get a feeling of what they want as a club
