Get your 27 in particular at Skywalkers now. They will pick up a lot of good girls going into 8th and 9th grade and they will become a dominant team. It happens with all their teams.

If your 27 is a strong player get her there now and try to secure her a spot before they get an influx of girls[/quote]

It does happen with most of their teams. But this 27 team isn't like most.

It would take 10-12 good players to improve this team. Dominant is not gonna happen. Maybe relevant[/quote]

if they just got the five best girls from TLC, they would be an NGLL playoff team. Nowhere close to Heros, M&D or BLC, but as good as if not better than Coppermine and LBC.[/quote]

Based on past results I can’t see how they are better than Coppermine and LBC? I personally didn’t watch them play either team but simply based on scores over the past year I can’t agree with this last statement. Are you saying TLC is done after this year and SW is getting those girls? Will be interesting.

LBC, Pride and MDU are alone in that second tier IMO. I had BLC in there too, but after beating M&D, I think you have to lump them in with Hero’s and M&D. It will be M&D and Hero’s in the finals per usual.

Agree

So 2 teams combined 3-13 giving up a combined 175 goals are gonna take 5 girls from TLC to make a playoff team? I'm gonna say that's probably not happening

Funny. Pride (4-4) and MDU (3-5) finished 5th & 6th in their own division. LBC (6-2) finished 3rd. I think your preseason assumptions are no longer holding. Heck, Integrity (5-3) finished 4th in that division and beat both MDU and Pride.

Look at the scores of those games. I know it’s not realistic to ask people to have actually watched games other than ones their own kid is playing in, but some of us do.

Integrity def better than given credit for, but Pride or MDU could very easily be where LBC is. We are talking about the results of a single game that was in many cases 1-2 goal difference. (LBC vs Pride, Integrity vs Pride, Pride vs MDU, LBC vs MDU, etc)

I'm not sure I'm quite sold on Integrity either. If they continue to beat the "second tier" teams this Summer, then they have to be included in that tier. They did have a good Spring so congrats to them.

Their 25 team is good.
26 average at best.
27-29 not good at all.
Think twice. Good players on those teams looking elsewhere instead of waiting to get those 10 to be competitive. Coppermine is the answer. Have the fields. Getting in the better tourneys and looking for good coaches. They will be top 3 in the area soon.

Really like Coppermine's mids but they seemed to have stalled a little bit, if they get a few more pieces they can take next step.

Having the fields is a non issue unless if you are NEMS who has awful fields. SW, TLC, etc all have access to St. Paul's School for Girls, Friends School and St. Timothy's. All those fields are way nicer than anything Coppermine has at this point.

This MDU team has always been an enigma to me. I honestly believe they could beat or lose to any MD A team on any given day.

Just based on the eye test, they are probably a top 4 MD team, but they have some losses that just aren't explainable. They killed Aces Elite in the Fall but got blown out by Gold Coast and barely beat Cavalier. Almost every NGLL game is a 2 goal game regardless of level of opponent.

It was the same last summer. They lose to Coppermine buy then lose to YJA the next day.

it feels like a coaching issue,but haven't seen them enough to really be sure.

Quality of fields is probably the worst excuse ever to change clubs. In fact, I've always said that teams who practice on grass consistantly do better in summer and fall tourneys.

Def not a coaching issue, they both are fantastic with the resumes to back it up.

Gold Coast tournament down 10 girls for fall sports commitments.

Up 7-1 on Cavs, called the dogs off and decided to work on some things, no reason to run up scores.

To your point, yes, feels like they can lose or win against any A team.

As for best in AACo, end of day Integrity beat them 6-5, Integrity can claim that crown until that changes.

Looks to me MDU doesn’t rely on just one or two players. Every kid on the field is highlighted and they have multiple girls who score. The team is learning to play as a team, and is well prepared for the next level. With that, comes fluctuation in performance unfortunately, but they can hang with any team.

As far as AACO, every day it could be someone different. Integrity is good a lot better than given credit, remove a player or two and not sure you would see the same results. MDU is more well rounded and skilled.
