Placing blame on refs and “holdbacks” takes away from the work and skill level girls from Maryland clubs have. It is ok we are more skilled and better coached at this point, no excuses.
With this being your first tourney with all the “powerhouses” your style of play is now on the refs radars. I can see more yellow cards being issued against you guys at mid-Atlantic. Our refs allow you to play defense but you have to play within the rules.
