The committment level to play for the Express this fall has not been so onerous that you can't play other sports. Most of the kids on the team are playing football, basketball and/or hockey. The Express coach is very understanding that kids play other sports in the fall. There are usually a handful of kids missing a practice or game as a result of their committments to other sports. Despite all the success achieved by this team, they have yet to field their full squad for any competition this fall.

Looks like a nice team but lets see how the summer plays out.

Outlaws were missing 11 of their regulars so the team's performance was not truly indicative of how good the team really is.

Interesting comment, Express beat looneys twice in the same week end at Madlax Summer tour finale. Shock to the Looneys. The Express have beaten the Dukes 2 out of 3 times this fall. The express lost the only time they played the Crabs. Are you sure that no LI team will dominate the three? Looks like the domination has already started. Wake up....

Easy big fella...take a deep breath...its only 8th grade...lets stay away from terms like "domination" and resist crowning any 8th grade team world champs just yet. Long way to go. The only thing for sure is that every team will have 50% turnover over the next two years and everything will look different from where we are now. Be humble, pray for no injuries and just enjoy the journey.

I am an express parent too. My point was these teams that think, come spring they can wake up one morning and compete with the better teams is not the case. Yes we have dominated individual events but if they played all these teams at one event I do not see one team going undefeated. I know the looneys reloaded this year and do not forget this is U-15 there will be older teams. With the exception of this team no long island team has dominated the "Maryland, DC," teams in a long time. These other teams will be ready to play this year. We should enjoy this year The lacrosse should be great. But other programs that have not competed at this level have no idea how good these teams are

Thanks for the advice...I did not initiate the "dominate" comments. Please read all the posts before giving advice. As for enjoying the game at the 8th grade level..that is all I am doing. Enjoy

Watch out for the Crabs this yr. Their U13 was very good last yr won NPYLL against a solid MAD LAX all star team and most tournaments they entered. Did loose a tight game to Looneys and to Green Turtle once at the end of the summer season using U11 goalies. Crabs only kept 6 players from that team for U15. The program is known to have "real " tryouts, so untill HS Sophmore its season to season and even that team is known to cut boys from previous yrs. So far in the fall(U15) they have beaten Looneys, Mad Lax (not too good not sure why)GT twice, and LI Orange/Cudas. All games in a dominate fashion. Another solid team down this way which does not get noticed is the Annapolis Hawks.

Hang on there guy. They did not dominate the express you jumped out big in the first half and express dominated the second half. You were suppose to show up at the dukes tournament and were missing two players so you did not come. You have not played express at full strength. Only reason you dominated the first half was faceoffs. Our faceoff guy could not make it against you. Don't beat your chest so soon. We will see you March 30th. So far all the parents from the crabs and dukes are great people and respect good lacrosse win or lose. Please don't be the idiot on the sidelines

At first I enjoyed your email. Sorry about your fogo but since you make it a point we also were missing players. I guess the word "idiot" flows easily from your NY big mouth. Oh and yes you must not have been one of classy LI parents I sat near during the game. On the other hand your boys were outstanding.

I have given the crabs and all teams the upmost respect. One thing express has is great parents and kids. I go to every game and the parents and kids are always respectful to everyone. I did not call you an idiot I asked you not to be one. If you read earlier posts i have always said win or lose watching these teams play will be fun. I will not stoop to your level and attack your parents and team because the were all great to be around.

I dont know which posts are yours as you are listed as anonymous. Lets just say when you use the term "idiot" offense can be taken. With that said, I think we are on the same page. Please dont take things so seriously. Just some good natured talk between parents who are crazy about their kids sports. No harm meant when I described the game Crabs played against LI as dominating. I agree the halves were completely different. We did miss our 17 yr old 8th grader though who has been held back 3 times (just a joke).

All of you will have to revisit this forum 3 years from now with a lot of mea culpas about how over-the-top ridiculously intense you all were. I guarentee that most of your boys are not nearly as intense about the "domination" of their summer club team as you are. All they want to do at this age is have fun playing with their friends. Three years from now none of what is happening today will every be remembered or at least certainly won't matter. Trust me, my oldest son is a freshman in college now (yes, he is playing varsity lax at highly ranked DIII school) and I can't remember (nor does he care right now) what happened in 8th grade. Stop with the snarky, nasty comments and JUST CHILL!!! How about discussing really important issues such as over-use injury prevention, academic study habits and aids, best tournaments and must avoid tournaments for this age etc...
