Thats news to me about not having 2 of our best players? Where did you here that? We ended up practicing and were short one of our defenders who is a monster 13yr old 6-2 but we were covered. when we played you guys in DC we were short one kid. Our roster is light carrying 21 players. Crazy thing we have one player from NJ who drives down with his mother for every practice and a Mass boy who flies in.Both came to practice at BL (our home field in Balt) Both have parents who are from Balt and have granparents here.So as far as you know you folks will be doing all the travel? Doesnt seem fair as a couple teams are from Southern MD and Mad Lax from DC/Va.

We were in philly and beat every team. We were disapointed. It had to come from your side and our coach relayed it through a couple parents your coach called him and said you would not attend without these 2 kids. Maybe they could practice but not spend the whole day. Listen win or lose thats the lacrosse that is fun to watch. We were 2 short with our faceoff kid out when we played you guys. Ask the looneys he is a game changer good luck I am sure we will see each other often Happy Holidays

2016 Express Orange are all 1998 except for a few late 97's, if those are same age as Crab players they are perfectly matched. First game was great to watch, looking forward to many more.

Yes thats the ages of the Crabs U15 boys. This will be fun and good for both teams. By the way, Looneys is the name of the other team here in Balt. Not "the " Looneys. Many people make that mistake. Looneys is a pub in Fells Point (Batlt. city) whic sponsers them. Happy holidays to you and yours

Express Orange 8th grade team won the Winter National tournament earlier today. They beat Dukes by a goal in championship game. Dukes beat Express in pool play. Seems like a good rivalry brewing there.

After watching the express vs dukes game it would be nice to see the dukes, express, crab and looney rivalry develop this year. Express has played both the crabs and dukes and both are incredible teams. Looneys played express well over the summer. Not to over look other teams but the outlaws who I respect and have a good team and are well coached came in fourth last week. There are way to many 10 goal plus wins at this level. Hopefully pictures on the web site come second and the brackets get picked to better competition not to watch blow outs week in and week out

Express Orange and Dukes 8th grade teams have played eachother three times this fall and every game has been a nail biter. The players from both teams have benefitted greatly from playing in these evenly-matched high caliber lacrosse games. What makes these events even more enjoyable is the first class coaching and parents on both sides. Can't wait for the next time these two teams meet.

I agree with the previous poster that Express, Dukes, Crabs and Looneys should play eachother as much as possible.

Lots of players on the full summer squads are not in uniform in the fall due to other commitments such as football or basketball. Lets see what the summer brings...

The level of play at this age has changed greatly. Any teams that are not playing or practicing all year long are at a disadvantage. There is no team on the island who will wake up one day and be able to play with the dukes, crabs and looneys. The express play and practice every week. They are small compared to the other three teams. There is no teams on the island that will dominate these teams including the express.

Very few if any kids at this age have eliminated all other sports to just focus on lax year round. If they have, I think its a mistake. I'm sure in Maryland the crabs and looney kids also play other sports in the winter. Its only the lax club program directors that would endorse dropping all other sports so they can continue to collect more fees for meaningless off-season tournaments, clinics etc. Lets see what happens when basketball, wrestling etc.. is over.

Crabs just posted their winter practice schedule for U15 and U13. Every Sunday from now untill NPYLL begins. Crabs director does specify winter sports come first though based on my expierence, Crabs boys are lacrosse players 1st and will all attend foregoing their winter sports. Crabs does not charge addtional fees for practices or tournaments in the fall or winter.
