Seems fairly close. Didn’t Laxachusettes just lose to some team not on this list from the north east though? Not that one loss would mean they aren’t top ten, just curious if anyone has insight into that situation

Also, probably need to insert Next Level over sweetlax. Fairly sure they just beat them and have only lost to madlax this year.

Next Level must be listed, not even a question.

Didn’t Express lose to Pride a couple weeks ago?

Other than those it seems fair.

Will be interesting to see what next weeks algorithm spits out. Fall is over so these will be the final rankings until winter tourneys start up I think.

Mad Lax....
everyone else is interchangeable week to week....

and no I don't have a horse in the race but have seen them all play in the past not sure this year is much different. Seems like the gap closed for some but that just created more parity at the top. But still think everyone is chasing Mad Lax, I do think the hawks took a step back just based on results.

Outlaws folded a few years ago. It’s great to be an outlaw if your son quit lacrosse. Lol

Beating Express North by a goal and only scoring 4 doesnt feel good to end the fall.

Express is the best team on Long Island.

They were clearly not as good as 91 last year. A lot has changed.

Most express rosters carry around 33-35

Express will continue to field top tier teams and more so now that Moran joined the program. If your son is a player there are only 3 programs in NY to be part of for the foreseeable future.

Is it me or do all of the Maryland 2029 girls appear to be much older. Is this a thing in Maryland that their “2029” players could be born in 2027 or 2028? I find it hard to believe that their players are so much taller than most teams. 🤔

Yes. Express, 91 and Sweetlax Upstate.
Well yes if he is a top player on Express he will see the field, if he is a borderline player they will be more than happy to take your money...

the roster is never set in an organization like express...they are always looking for the next best thing no one player should ever feel comfortable they are on the roster ....thats the model

All the Top teams are like this. This is nothing new and not particular to one team. Every team should be looking to
Upgrade always. You aren’t owed a lifetime roster spot. Keep getting better or get left behind.

....and that explains the state of youth lax on LI. These large orgs are not about teaching kids to be players of the game, to love the game ...they are money grabs, looking for the kid who was trained better elsewhere( says a lot about their own trying abilities), convincing parents thats its about winning even at the expense of their own kids. Youth sports should be about player development every one of these kids will not be the same in two years physically, mentally, etc these are crucial years in their development ,consider that before you put child in a position where he is the 20 or 30 something on one of these rosters. Put them in a position to succeed not just a position to be on the self proclaimed best team. It's a great sport it should be taught to all and enjoyed by all at this age not treated as a business about bragging rights. Develop the kids you have, build it, earn the top $ you are paid. then you can be considered the best. if you tell me thats the model the next two years 7/8th grade then I buy it that is when the separation should begin as the maturation process is happening and you can begin to see a child's athletic path...but in 4/5/6th grade to make that the mantra always add and replace seems like your about your wallet not about the kids.

I have been through this end to end a few times. Just find a place where son plays, the coaches are dedicated, and the team is decent enough win some tourneys. Yes, the top team is always the goal, but it can and will be frustrating for you and your son to be in the bottom half of any roster. There are so many good options. And the top are always looking to add and improve through recruitment more so than development. It’s a results driven process via winning.

Not sure why it would be 91 over Igloo.Igloo played in bigger tournaments and beat 91 head to head.91 played teams like the Florida Dragons and Bobby’s back door lacrosse club in a watered down fall tournament that they won.Igloo and Express went to the NAL and competed.91 could not get out of Tri Star without a loss and a last second win over Express.Sweet lax upstate can not compete with the LI big 3.Should be a fun spring when and if they play each other.It is great that the 3 seem to be this evenly matched.

Express played Primetime and BBL at NAL. That’s not exactly competing. They would have been blown out by Madlax or the Hawks.

Agree and still haven't beat 91 or igloo.. yes the spring/summer will be the true test. And if history is an repeat they probably won't see each other more than once if at all over the spring/summer

91 always plays those B level My Lacrosse Tournaments. They throw tournament wins together doing that at a young age and recruit based off those B tournament victories. Igloo, Express and Legacy play all the top
Teams in the country. You can’t be surprised when 91 doesn’t show up to a tournament, it’s an organizational decision to cherry pick opponents whenever possible. The top AA teams don’t want to play in the MLT because the competition isn’t as good.

This post is nonsense. 91 has played all the top teams and has only lost to 1 LI team by one goal. Big talker here. We’ll see how it plays out this summer.

I must’ve missed all the times 91 went to DMV to play. I must’ve missed all the times they played Madlax, Annapolis Hawks, Crabs, and Next Level.
