MCD and BL is going to be a great battle. CHC and STM is turning into an annual rivalry. Whatever the final, what an outstanding Tuesday Friday coming up as these 4 teams are very very good.
Hats off to StP and Severn for a great run and they will be in it year after year.
Gilman and Loyola will get back on their horses soon enough.
I will let other folks talk about what a changing culture and Loyola's championship F/S team means for them next year. Gilman has been rebuilding for ten years now but next year they will turn it around. On the other hand, SP's rebuild (both coaching and personnel) is real as they were probably the second or third best team at the end of the season. Severn will always struggle with depth but are extremely well coached and have some top flight talent (especially their FOGO).
Four good teams left. CHC has the offensive momentum over the Saints. Only a great performance by their FOGO and keeper will keep SM in the game. Look for the Cards to win by 4. While the talent on the field may be comparable in the BL MCD match up, the BL coaching staff will take full advantage of their opponent's lack of preparation. Look for a shortie on one or two of the Eagle attackmen, pressure rides, motion and seal plays galore. If they win over 60% at the X and Petro is hot, its going to be a long day for the Eagles.
