That being said, Eagle Stix game will be a war.

Madskillz/Aces will be a great game. Probably a 16-13 kinda game will lots of scoring at a fast tempo and not that much defense.


Remember though that the NY and GA girls have been playing with their high school varsity and JV teams over the past 2 months against bigger stronger competition. Thats why GA does NGLL so early and and NY so late.

Personally, i think Aces will beat MS just based on their edge on defense and LaxIQ. I think Eagle Stix and M&D will be a close 1-2 goal game. I would lean towards ES just because of their offensieve execution but wouldn't be surprised if the MD team wins. I think a lot will depend on when they play the MD champ. If they play in the first pool play game, I think that's a big edge for the MD team.

In the final, i would make the MD/ES winner a pretty decent favorite.

There are at least 3 top teams playing this weekend for the MD champs, how did you get to M&D playing in the tournament. Hey BLC is legit and beat M&D already, my money is on BLC this Saturday.

I heard that MDU was bought by True this past week. Is this true? I think this will negatively impact MDU in a huge way....if true

With True buying MDU, will they practice in Glen Burnie? I bet fees go up, they need to pay for the Moose, plus fees majorly went up for the boys True teams.

Partnership, not buyout. True will handle areas that MDU lagged, website, social media, uniform/apparel.

MDU players will also get to play for True National in some summer tournaments.

Access to practice fields with Turf/Lights.

I think it’s a positive tbh, they provide infrastructure that was lacking on MDU.

Prices will definitely go up, but they will also train more.

To be fair, the training at True is quite good. They just have never had a girls program with talent. However, with the uncertainty I would expect many girls to start lookign around.

Fees will likely go up, no doubt.

I’ve always heard Long Island allows middle school girls to play varsity, but I have no personal knowledge. I know it’s not true in Atlanta. My sister lives there and has a HS boy and a MS girl who plays lax. MS kids can’t play varsity in any sport. Period. All MS girls play for a HS “feeder” team…so like Walton HS might have a junior feeder team of 6th / 7th graders and a senior feeder team made up of 7th and 8th graders. They play other middle school feeder teams. Club teams shut down in the spring except for maybe 1-2 NGLL games to see who comes up here in May.

AU Futures decisions sent out. Daughter made it but friend we went with got ‘alternate’. Did everyone who didn’t make it get an alternate email or is there still a chance she gets in?

I agree with all of the above. This is not the same as the M&D buyout with 3STEP.

LI does allow middle schoolers play. LI Lax Journal has rosters and shows the years of the girls...

Its all of NY. You see more upstate girls playing varsity because competition level is lower up there. I think something like 15 Aces girls are currently playing varsity.

This is one of the reasons why NY teams tends to "catch up" a bit to DMV teams in 7th/8th grades

True National isn't competitive at least on the girls side -- they don't get the best players, pretty much a cash grab.

For perspective, they lost to MadLax over the winter.

At practice Thursday, our daughter coach told the team, they should be ready to play any time on Sunday. They could move some games up if they expect thunderstorms all afternoon.
