The whole stat thing is a joke anyways. That should not be looked at seriously. So many different factors in the stats and it’s like comparing apples and oranges. Maybe only count stats in the playoffs. Other than that, a total joke!

Stat leaders will get the post season awards. Sad but if social media didn’t focus so much of the worth of the player by the stats, this wouldn’t happen. Some coaches also encourage it at even send any fake stats (like draw controls) they can into LILJ to promote their players.

is the IAAM conference in Maryland the best conference? The 3rd best team in the conference beat the best team on Long Island by 9 goals. I would imagine St. Anthony's might be at the bottom of that conference?

Stats are always subjective, if you are on a very skilled team, usually you will see the points( goals and assists ) spread out. Multiple players scoring every game , because they are playing smart team lacrosse.
Then you might get the kid who has big numbers, but the rest of the team doesn’t , one player does all the scoring. This could be by design, or that player is a ball hog.
Then you get the private school stats, usually they play inferior talent and run up the score and pad their stats. It’s always funny when you see the private school boasting their kids stats vs some start up private school lacrosse team. It’s easy to check and see who the players scored against during the season, that will indicate if they are legit or not. Scoring 7 goals against the worst team in the conference, or did they score against the best team in the confrence. Additionally there are many stats that don’t get recorded that are very important, ground balls, offensive ground balls, defensive ground balls, draw controls, defensive take aways, shooting percentage.

I'm not sure what your point is.. Mcdonagh, SPSG, GCS, would beat every team on LI, Upstate NY. Ct. Pa..
Saint Anthonys has the same issue as McD.. sub-par coaching

I'm curious, don't you have to be on the Watchlist to be selected for the Senior Game? If not, what's the purpose of the Watchlist?

Actually, both coaches sign off on the stats at the end of game and take a photo of both books. Sorry your daughter doesn’t have any. Stats aren’t everything but they do matter. If you have proof of fake stats you should contact Section XI not make outlandish statements with nothing to back it up.

I thought I read the team is supposed to be made up of kids from the IL women's top 2022 list and the UA Watchlist. That said there will be a lot of deserving girls who don't get selected and a few who do that are head scratchers. to me this is the highest accolade a High School player can achieve... Congratulations to those who made it.
one more round, Im hoping to see a familiar name

That's interesting because a name is in neither. I was always under the impression that it fed off the UA Watchlist, why is there a watchlist to begin with then?

It would be great to see them keep stats on "Shots that should not have been taken" the shots that the selfish players take when they shouldn't... whether because of the situation in the game or because they should be making one more pass or because they are too far out or whatever... Many times these shots result in an easy save or miss the cage and result in a turnover either way these foolish shots result in transition for the other team and many times the end up with a goal for the other team.

The refs especially the tall blond were one sided today at the bbp vs rp game.2 second half yellow cards on fouls that were going on all game and lopsided free position calls.bbp must have had a dozen Free position.just ridiculous and totally changed the game in their favor .I felt like rp was beat by the refs.it seemed as though bbp offense was based on drawing shooting space.maybe the team had one assist .their zone defense is tough though.playoff lax needs a shot clock at a minimum.can’t go minutes without trying to get a legit shot.

Couldn’t agree more. Should be counted as a caused turn over when they run through 5 defenders just to not have to pass to any of the open kids in front of the cage and lose the ball. Same with charges. Ball hogs aren’t impressive.
