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.

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

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.

These would be bonus tournaments and add some MDU girls into the mix and they will be competitive. In no way is that a negative.

Agree its not a negative, but with the exception of their MLK weekend tourney, the rest of the national team events are on key summer tourney weekend.

To be fair, though, their recruiting age national team are decent. Not as good as top MD team, but not horrid. Probably around 50 in the country. Older daughter plays on M&D Red and true nationals beat them by 1 at mid-atlantic.

But that itself is the problem. True national at recruiting age plays the same top events as the big clubs. So really no value to the MDU girls.

I think 3D National United has a better model for their national team. Playing in holiday weekend or December events which don't conflict with the top teams tourneys.

Should be good game. Hero's has been playing better. I'd give them the edge. Either way these 2 teams will have great tournament seasons.

I’m going with Heroes tomorrow. M&D won the semi, but it was a toss up. Easily could have been BLC. Based on what I saw, BLC can beat M&D as many times as lose. BLC dominated most of game, M&D dominated last 10 mins. Will be an interesting tourney season.

Both games were really good. Top 3 three I think are incredibly well matched.

Really liked that fact that for the most part the ref lets the girls play. Very few ticky tack fouls.

So much better flow of play than 80% of the NGLL games this issue. Hope for both teams this is the case for the finals tomorrow.

Hero’s was up 3 on M&D with a little over two minutes to go in the game and lost by 1 in regulation. Four unanswered goals by M&D in two minutes on what looked the same play.

Actually, we played and play both and I always thought Hero’s was better. They move the ball quickly and unselfishly. M&D is more ISO’s. Different styles.

Possession was the key of the game, Heros couldn’t resist going to goal instead of stalling and in the end it cost them. Both very good teams and it was elite lacrosse.

Well, I wouldn't want to make a living playing either one of them. Both are great.

There were a lot of close games in every division. I watched a lot of games and I must say I was impressed by M&D, Hero's and BLC.

The fact M&D came back from 3-4 goals down with just minutes left in both games was impressive. But I wonder why they were in that position both games?

And yes, the same play at the end of Hero's game. 3 times.

We look forward to battling both of those teams all summer. Maybe even squeeze out a win or two.

Seems like a repeat of what happened with MD and BLC. Same play brought them up from being behind BLC by 4. It is starting to seem like Heros, MD, and BLC could be on top on any given day. Good luck to MD next weekend. The girls had a fantastic season! We are lucky to be surrounded with such great competition!
