Bandits by far? Interesting when they have rising 5th graders play on the team! They should dominate other rising 4th graders. Especially when they use older siblings to ensure a win. Not impressed. Unfortunately this takes the credit due away from those kids who truly belong in that age group. False advertising to market team as best by far when they encourage parents of older kids to leave their kids back so the can play on the team. Sad.

I'm not sure what went on this week end, but don't throw away the rest of the summer. They are an excellent team for their age. They have won many tournaments this summer.

Of course they're an excellent team especially when they have a rising fifth grade goalie and they used a kid from Crush to help out. They tried to hide it by having the kid wear someone else's pinnie. This is really pathetic at the fourth grade level.

The Outlaws team is a great team too. The 2nd 91 team not so much.

Everybody likes to bash 91. For you to say that you obviously were not at the game. Both those teams played great games so why not just leave it at that. Unless the Outlaws coach is telling you your the A team and you can't understand how the 91 B team gives you so much trouble.

The kid is 11 and should actually be going into 6th grade but was held back, playing with rising 4th grade and against rising 5th grade, no excuses ....pathetic

Outlaws great team, 91B Warriors not so much???

Pool Play = Outlaws 3 - Warriors 1
Championship = Outlaws 6 - Warriors 3.

Good games. Why would you say one is GREAT! and the other not so much.

So let me get this straight- kid is going into 5th gr and played in a rising 5th gr bracket, despite the fact he plays on an older team. Was this an age based tourney or grade based? I'm thinking he was clear to play if he was a rising 5 th in a rising 5th gr bracket despite all else. Do you think none of the other teams that day had kids held back a yr before they started school?

"other teams do it"makes it right? It would be like my young 6'1" 190 lb 8th grader playing against 6th grade kids . Its just wrong .

Age based format works best. If it's Sept 1st 2014 and your child is still 9 you play 2023. I don't care about what grade a kid is in. I have no problem playing against any rising 5th grader for next year in the 2023 group as long as he fits the U9 criteria. At least it's age appropriate.

Where do you get off name-calling and questioning these 2 teams?

These are children playing at a very high-level who should be commended for that, not insulted by randoms.

Everything else is just noise.

Bandits 6 - Badgers 3. Laxfest final. And even though it was 6-0 in Maryland in early June the Badgers held them to 6 goals. Not saying the Badgers are the better team, Bandits are and will be until a 2023/u9 the beats them. But the Badgers can certainly match up.

I was told lot of the kids on the Bandits DO NOT play and that the Coach keeps about 6-7 kids (his own and other close friends) on the field all the time. I heard the Badgers played every player an equal amount of time and still competed. If you are thinking of switching clubs; Badgers is the place to be. You will get tons of practices from September all the way through the last game of summer ball.

Great! Leave the Badgers out. Better club, better coaches, and better team environment. Success is measured differently. Not just by saying your the best "by far".

How can you say "not in same convo"? The badgers were beating them 2-0 and it was 4-3 with 2 mins to go in the game with the final of 6-3.

Bandits are a good team. Badgers are equally as good. It's great competition. Leave it at that

Express tryouts are in August. So should be interesting to see how many Bandits attend.

Bandits are the best team until someone beats them. Badgers are good but not "equally" as good. Need a W

Saw them play yesterday at Lax4BackPax. Couple of kids with some skill. The coaching was not impressive at all. A lot of yelling at kids and screaming at them for mistakes made on the field. Seemed to be no coaching going on. Plainedge team was up by a couple when I was watching. Don't know the final, but they are an average B team.

Was impressed by the Plainedge team, couple of very good players and they moved the ball well for a town team. Seen them at a couple of town tournaments this year.

Plainedge is a solid town team. Bayport, Smithtown, Connetquot, Sayville also very good competitive town teams that will beat several travel clubs at this level. Not A teams, but good B squads.

Your out of your mind! I am the coach of the 2023 Plainedge Maniacs team and I will never risk the health and well being of anyone on the field by playing a boy who is not the correct age or grade. I coach the game to these boys and stress honor and sportsmanship. Anyone that knows me knows that. Step out from behind the Anonymous shield and put a name to that complete and total lie. Name one instance ever that the 2023 team played with older players on their sidelines. You are taking away from the great group of kids and families that we have in the Plainedge community that are trying to build a good lacrosse program.
