Good day for NJ soccer. STA will play MF in the finals
Matchfit play SSC first round haha good draw.. And matchfit lose today so keep on doing you matchfit haha
Maybe missed earlier post...but why did MF get dropped from Academy league?
Congrats to STA! I'm glad someone shut MF up.
Clearly something MF should hang their heads in shame over. Played 8 games in 8 days and lost in the final of a tournament on PKs. Congrats to STA, good team.
8 games in 8 days? Fire the coach and the manager.
Well MF was bound to loose, just like Kentucky did, but to gloat on a PK win after MF played 8 games in 8 days. Come on now.Good job MF.
7:07One of the reasons MF was dropped from Academy league is money. USSDA mandates that academy teams must be free. MF has only one team that is free. u14
Who gloated? I agree with prior post. Maybe the team was dropped from academy because they play 8 games in 8 days
You have a good point because that would not happen in academy league.
Would any of you coaches run a score to 9-0? If you would, why? What would you gain? If you would not, why not? What is the down side?
National Cup brackets are up. It appears SSC vs. Matchfit are paired in the first round. With the winner most likely facing Marlboro. Definately the hardest path to the finals. Look forward to seeing how this pans out.
Blind draw is not the right way to do this. NO way SSC and MF should be playing in the first round. Very easy fix NJYS, know your teams. It is your job, right?
Some teams have a real ez road to the final four. Sometimes that is just how it works out.
score as many goals as you can...that's the idea to put the ball in the back of the net. If you win 20-0 it's still just one game counts as one win. One game you wouldn't want to play again because that's not high level competition. Rather win 10 games 1-0 against higher level teams than 1 game 10-0. Give time to the end of the bench players an hope they get in on the goal fest but don't tell them not to play Purposful soccer
I disagree with 2:18, but I see his point. I just dont feel the need to mock your opponent.
I posted 2:18 (no affiliation with a team that won 9-0) an I truly whole heartedly believe playing a game of keep away would be mocking them. You lose the integrity of the game by playing anything but the game to the best of your teams ability. If you stop trying to play the game that to me is more of a slap in the face than scoring as much as possible....not everyone will agree on everything.
Who set up that game? Bad match all together.
I heard of a u134 pre-academy game where Red Bulls humiliated the other team with a score of 21-0. I was shocked that Red bulls was fine with doing that. I think the Ref should end the game if the two teams are completely mismatched.
How can you ignore SJEB? Great facility, if not the best in the region and D'ambra is one of the best players to ever come out of the area. The man can do no wrong.
Well, at U134 some of the players can barely move. If you have just one good player he can dominate.
SJEB great facility? Fields yes, facility is where exactly?
Fields are fine...but it is often very, very windy there
Toms River FC United defeats Jersey Knights Galacticos in NJ Cup play. Nice win for TRFC over a very tough and top rated team.
oh boy SDFC vs Stronghold this sunday
Who is home SDFC or SSC?
Yes, home field advantage is huge at Stronghold as they utilize the same ref crew.
SSC is traveling to SDFC for the game this weekend.
Marlton what is going on with your team?You were supposed to be one of the favorites and now you 1-1-2 already.
Favorites for what? The top EDP division? Region1? Favorite for what? There are a handful of teams that play only the best out there and being in that group is a compliment. When your team reaches the heights that Marlton has, please let everyone know. NOT a Marlton person.
Why the Marlton interest. Worry about yourself.
What heights has Marlton reached???
Good Luck For them..keep train hard and compete more harder..you can do it guys..
The game is on..it's no time for holiday guys!train hard.. train hard!!
Maybe if they train hard, real hard their record will get better!!!
That goes for every team. I have never seen or heard of a team that has no room for improvement.
why is Arlington's coach such a hardo, ease up on those red cards buddy their for the players.
Any noteworthy games today?
SSC 3SDFC 2
Haha it's great to hear the self proclaimed us champion SDFC team lost again. Good for SSC. What is SSC's record so far this season?
I'm not surprised SSC won today. They just beat Marlboro a week or go. Great job
Omg Does anyone realize that these top teams can all beat each other on any day
TSF 3Homdel 2
haha SSC vs. SDFC game was a joke
How was it a joke. 3-2 sounds like a good game to me.
TSF is a good team. No shame there
TSF didn't score a single goal at Dallas Cup so don't be too proud.
TSF knows the facts. Either team could have won, they did on this day. Good for them.
To the person who said the SSC vs SDFC game was a joke, please elaborate. I would love to hear your words of wisdom on this.
Yes for those of us who weren't at that game it's hard to tell from a 3-2 score line how a game was anything other than a hard fought back an forth match.please explain why 2 tops teams sac v SDFC was a joke of a contest?. TSF v Holmdel 3-2 TSF probably felt they had something to prove after poor showing in Dallas an Holmdel isn't as good as they think they are.
How do you know how Holmdel feels about themselves? They are a good team, not everyone can be #1 you know.
Not everyone can be #1 your right but To take the leap to compete for the #1 spot you have to put teams like TSF who are ranked lower than you away. Read previous posts every team including Holmdel think that they are very good. Holmdel isn't a bad team not a great team either though. 1+1=2
I heard that someone got seriously hurt at the SSC/SDFC game? What happened?
That is not good. Good luck to that player
He went into a head-to-head collision and he hurt his head. Needed stitches but is doing okay, from what I have heard
The truth is that one player wrecklesly went into a header and struck the other player in the head as he was heading the ball. The ref should have red carded The wreckless player as he's was already warned. Now the injured player has about 12 staples in his head for no reason
It is a shame, SSC has a couple that can do this to you but I am not sure it could have been avoided.
I was not at the game and agree with 8:02. If one player severely hurts another player he went into the ball wreckless. Regardless if the player got his ankle broken from a tackle or a broken head from a header. The coach should have taken the player off the field. 16 year old boys are young adults and have the ability to understand that a accident happened and that a break is needed for both players.I hope both boys are alright
The wreck less player was from SDFC, the player with stitches is from SSC he was the victim
It was not "reckless". It was a clean attempt that had a bad result. Stop your whining and know that no one wanted that result.
And Marlton looses again!!!
Why do you care so much about Marlton/
This is just another parents blind attempt to defend a dangerous play. Grow up and teach your kids about making dangerous plays. I highly doubt thebboy ment tobhurtbthe other but. He did. This is a good opportunity for all of us to talk to our teams about making dangerous plays
What was dangerous about it? The injury was not good but how was it dangerous? Kids get hurt every day.
This was not a good day for him. This may set the rivalry up another notch.
It wasa good day for SSC coach, he walked away with the victory
I'm sure he was concerned about his player.
He should have been concerned about his player, and he was.
My son doesn't play for either team. However a boy got hurt on a questionable play. It happens and yes the other player should have had to take a break for a while to re group.What's bad is that now there are coach attacks. Grow up SDFC. I'm happy you lost by all the negative comments you have made
You were NOT there yet you call it a questionable play. You base that expertise on what?
Two men enter! One man leaves!Two men enter! One man leaves!Two men enter! One man leaves! What is this Thunderdome?
SSC coach personified calmness
Just figured to check this for the first time in almost a year. Seriously everyone get a grip. The only thing that matters is that a boy got hurt and is now OK. That's it period.Grow up it sounds like someone got hurt and someone's feeling got hurt cuz they lost. All that matters is that the boy is OK and hopefully has a easy recovery
Predictions for this season for state cup and edp NJ champs?Mine are based on the games played since Febuary and the last two seasons. 1.Match Fit or SSC as top two teams.2.SDFC, Marlboro at a close second3.STA, Marlton, Sounders and TSF as third tearAll are great teams and have a real chance at winning any of the cups.
STA and Marlton are better than Holmdel and TSF. STA has tied and beaten MF. MF plays SSC in the first round of SC so one of them is gone. The winner will play most likely Marlboro so there goes 2 of the top 5 gone in 2 rounds. All this while some very marginal teams play no one to the semi's.
You are wrong, the Sounders can play with them all and if all goes as planned, win. This is a different team, don't think you know until you have seen. Complete respect for the teams mentioned, they all play very good soccer but to take a backseat at this time is not the way.
Cape beat SJEB in PKs.
Wow. Good for them. Good luck in future rounds
I was at the game and it was pretty even believe it or not. I would say SJEB took the first half and Cape Express had the better of the 2nd. SJEB moved the ball a bit better and had more corners but they never really got off a good shot. In PKs the Cape Express goalie stole the show. Made 3 diving saves and their shooters were able to put 3 past the Barons very good goalie
Down goes another top 10 team!!!
SJB and Cape are close and many know each other. This victory didnt come as a surprise and no one is shocked. SJB favored to win, yes, but they knew it would be a close game. Game should have been played weeks ago but SJB needed to have everyone available to play. Not sure why that was allowed but all well that ends well.
The Cape Express team isn't bad. Please don't overstate it though. The Barons should win that game 99 times out of 100. I'll bet if you asked anyone that might know the game on the Cape Express side, they were surprised by the victory. How could they not be surprised?
I know the general public feels that way but there are too many connections between the two teams. People know each other. It really isn't that far fetched.
Top 10 teams lose all the time, the question is can you beat them again? I wouldn't hang too much on the win as you will lose your next game.
Cape beat SJEB now, when it counts. They knocked SJEB out of the competition. That's what matters. The play was pretty even. Who knows who will win if they play again. Nice win Cape!
Quarterfinals "projected" match ups look like fine match ups. Holmdel vs SDFCMarlton vs Morris Galaticos vs BocaMarlboro vs winner of MF vs SSC3/4 games are great fixtures. On a given day Boca or Galaticos could cause match up problems an gut out a result.Predictions for "projected" games and why? A lot of very good games left to played from my pov...
Match Fit vs Winner of Holmdel vs Marlboro STA Morris vs SSCSemi final of New Jersey cupHard to pick a winner but MF is the favorite although a final vs STA would make for an interesting title fight
Holmdel will be in one of the two semi's. Team has come a long way.
Great job Cape!!! At the end of the day you beat them, knocked them out of the competition and that is all that matters. Let's worry about who will win the next game, when that game happens, but for now you are the winner and you get to move on.
Falcons are waiting.
Matchfit already confident they will beat Marlton away from home, could be a different story this time...
why would you say matchfit is confident, nothing on here states that.
Marlton needs a win today first.
Who does Marlton play today?
Match fit is not a dominant team by any means. What's with all of this talk on here for the past month? I highly doubt they will have a chance against SDFC. Match Fit needs to beat at least 3 of the top teams in NJ to even consider the selfs a player as a top team. Let's be real here
2:41, you dont have a clue what you are talking about. In NJ terms MF and SDFC are dominant. SSC and a few others are too. Let those teams not play each other and play the rest of NJ and they will win 90-95% of the games. That is dominant.
12:43 why would you say that it would be different story this time. Marlton has only won 1 game in EDP. Anyway, anybody can lose in any given day, but the odds are against them.
Marlton did not play fc Europa yet, edp score is a mistake.Marlton also beats bocca 3-1 tn in state cup quarterfinals
Ironbound advances with a win over Howell. Proving once again that soccer skills win over athleticism.
The dream for matchfit is about to end this weekend.SSC will get the win.
10;52 shut up and stop starting problems. Just shut up.
10:57 this blog is all about ping ponging opinions about games that will be played or have been played...if you don't like it don't read it???? "Shut up" is such a weak response to a thought
Let me start with this, I would have to read it to know I dont like it so please understand that what you are asking is impossible. So you are telling me that you are from SSC? No one else would care to write such a pathetic post. I thought it was just the SSC coach that was an ahole, but seems like they grow them at SSC.
1:02... I highly doubt that someone from SSC wrote the post. There are a lot of fire starters on here. Its easy to post such a comment to get people mad at a team. Think about it.Questio
True, because we all so much care for "the dream" to end for matchfit.
1:02 really??? reeeaaallly?? You write on it but don't read it? If you don't read it, you just happened upon this site an accidentally respond to a post? Sounds likely...Personally I like to read it with a side of popcorn
1:02 didnt say they didnt read it (good comprehension you have).said had to read to realize they dont like it. See the difference.
Refs at Ironbound were not good. Seemed to me that they knew some of the players on Ironbound and calls did go their way. I dont think anyone oculd argue that Ironbound had the calls more than Howell did. I dont blame the players at all.
3:45 Playing Ironbound and DOL in Newark sucks. The refs are always on their side. First thing the refs do when they walk in is shake the Ironbound and DOL coache's hands. I have seen it many times and also been on the other side of the bench as Coach. You were right on the money with your comment.
If I was a referee, what would I personally gain by helping a team win a match? Even if the coach was my best friend, helping his team win would not be the right thing for the team. No doubt there are bad refs out there, but doing it on purpose doesn't gain anybody anything positive. Sometimes you have good calls and sometimes you get bad calls. It's part of the game.
Sad thing is that it's still done. Shame on the refs that deal in such nonsense and everyone knows some do.
Marlboro survives. Holmdel outplayed Marlboro and had a 2 goal lead with 4 minutes to play. Holmdel lost a tough one
If Holmdeel had two goal lead with four min. left, the Holmdel coach needs to protect his lead, Sounds like he put in weaker subs at the end of the game.
How does anyone not associated with the match know who was in the game? Maybe both teams had subs in, maybe no one did, who knows. These are two highly rated teams so shouldnt their subs be good enough anyway. End result is that Marlboro moved on . Games are won and lost in many different ways.
Responding to the earlier text. The Newark refs are and always have been one sided for years. Each time one of my boys played the teams the refs always side with the Newark teams in Newark. The only way to win there is to dominate the local team. Its sad but it is true.
Stop your crying Howell. You think you should have won, and maybe you are right but you didnt. It happens and you play other games.
A 2 goal lead is well known to be the least secure lead in soccer. A 1 goal lead keeps players focused. A 3 goal lead is often insurmountable and likely is with 4 to go if you know end game tactics. A 2 goal lead can fool a coach. 2 goals leads can become 1 goal leads on a single touch and then it's panic time for a team not capable of closing out a match or not typically a winning side.A poster suggested that the coach went deep into the bench thinking the game was secure. This team carries a large number of players and this becomes a problem. How do you get kids in to games? You think with a 2 goal lead and 4 to go you might be safe. Better to think again. If you don't trust a player enough to put him in the game when it counts, he's on the wrong team or you're stockpiling players and player fees.
Sorry but a 2 goal lead with 4 to play is not something that should EVER be lost. Possess, kick it long and out of bounds, take your time etc. That is nothing short of a collapse and I feel bad for those kids. On the flip side, that must have been one happy team to come back from that and it must have been great to see their reaction.
These 2 teams are predictably unpredictable. Very good chance a game would turn this way for either team. They are both tier 2/3 teams with players of varying abilities, skill levels and commitments. A recipe for the unexpected. Not hoping to strike a nerve but this is really advanced recreational soccer.
2:58 when did I say that they should give up a two goal lead with 4 minutes left? What I did say was all factual and to call them rec teams is plain ignorant.
Rankings are numbers. Numbers without context are only used by coaches and parents who want to up play the importance (when high) or down play when low. Rankings absent all teams are silly. Academy teams gone. Rankings promote busyness not necessarily superiority. These 2 teams are survivors. Below average when all teams are factored in. Above average now with the teams that are left.I agree with the earlier post about being predictably unpredictable. These players are for the most part uncultured players with a few fast runners and a few kids with giant hearts. Maybe 3 players on each team who are soccer players then athletes. Most are athletes who have defaulted to soccer.The rankings don't tell you that. The eye test does. The truth is hard to find if you're not willing to look for it. Just use your eyes.
Just one dope. Don't bother with her
1/10 of not a lot is a lot less;)
So 4 state championships is not a lot?
Who has 4 state tournaments? And before you answer, remember that winning MOSA Prenier titles after the top 6 teams have left is not exactly winning MOSA Premier.Now who is it that has won 4 state tournaments?
Between the two teams they do. Sorry you don't know history

MF baby. !!!!
MF vs Marlton matchup should be a good one. Who wins?
Do not beat that chest so hard MF. SSC is coming up this weekend!
Just checked gotsoccer for Holmdel. I don't see where they won a State Championship. Don't see where they ever played in a semi-final let alone a final. What years did this happen?Marboro won 2 last year against the leftover teams after the academies pulled out. Who was the final against? Howell?
Hopefully the Dailey dose of MF self promotion will come to an end very soon.
Someone has a stick up their ass. Holmdel NJX did win state cups. Marlboro did win also beating SSC SDFC marlton along the way.
Where is the SSC MF game
When and what age group did this Holmdel team win a SC? Simple question.
Marlboro is a crappy kick and run team, that has no right to be playing the likes of SDFC.
No one can stop #15
I agree that SDFC is better than Marlboro but to say they have no right to play them is dumb. Last time the played Marlboro won.
NJ Force advances. Players leave or think they are too good but we just keep winning. NEXT ROUND please!
"Marlboro is a crappy kick an run team"Really? Have you seen SSC lately. They do that and use the looooong throw-in. That's their main strength.
To answer your question holmdel NJX has state championships and is a well recognized club. They were able to overcome players leaving for academies and rebuild into what once again is a highly ranked and touted team. I give the coaches all the credit in the world
When did THIS Holmdel team win a State Championship?
No news from Match Fit and Stronghold? Both teams must have lost!
Liar, liar pants on fire. There is no record of the Sounders winning any State Championship on gotsoccer. They don't even play in the top flight of the tournament. And when in the B flight, yep, they don't win that either.This can't be the Sounders posing as the other team, could it?
That's because if somebody posts the score you knuckleheads will accuse them of self-promotion. It's like beating your head against a WALL.
MF 3SSC 1MF played a man down entire 2nd half.
State championships mean very little at U-14 an under be honest. U-16/17/18 matter the rest is a toss up for development. No one calls them Sounders they are called Holmdel. and Holmdel is a very decent team.good players, good coach. Tough beat vs Marlboro but still a good team
MF played with a man down the entire second half?! Stronghold couldn't get more than just 1?
Yup, a pk.
MF tops in nj. By far
Marlboro will bring them down to Earth!!
Let be real Match Fit. You played an injury stricken SSC and SDFC is still strong and will easily beat you guys
Show me how real you are. Who was injured?
All It is evident that MF is tops. SSC is a real good team if not great and they disposed of them easily. One injury doesn't change an entire team.
Every time match fit beats a team, there seems to be some sort of excuse. So what stronghold was missing players, match fit played a man down the entire second half and stronghold could only score once.
And it was a penalty
Two SSC captions were injured and on the side line today. They are both game changers and would have easily handled your offense. Beat them when they are healthy and you will gain respect. Everyone knows that it was luck to beat a team with injuries.
Let's give MF some props they are coming into a new league and playing really well, all I see is excuses from teams who play them but when MF had a bad game I didn't see excuses from them...
So they were on the sidelines both times the teams have played?
Thanks, not really defending ourselves. Just trying to make people realize how silly they sound.
Interesting. The post calling out the SSC coach for talking to opposing players was taken down. Why?
Because it's true...and he shouldn't be on the sidelines
Because it is true does not answer why they were taken down. His debating with opposing players must end as it just gives his own team the perceived right to verbally assault their opposition.
That statement is very disrespectful to STA, Howell, Marlton, FSA and SSC. Let's not WALL ourselves off from the facts...
Actually, it's not... nice guess though.
Post was taken off because it was a Lie, the Matchfit coach was the one out of control cursing on the sidelines. To his defense he did opologized to Refs and SSC
The earlier post in reference to the SSC Coach was probably taken down because of the name calling and use of the D--k word to describe the coach.
Nice to run into sane people every once in a while. We have respect for all of the teams we have played. We aren't going to win all of our games, and we haven't. All of our opponents have play quality soccer and play very hard. It's fun to be playing in a very prideful league. You don't really get that in the academy league. (Cue to all of the nasty "got kicked out of academy league stuff")
Sounds like the MF coach is the one doing most pf the self promoting
Based on what? Some stupid people on here. From what I can see MF play has been self promoting enough.
Stop worrying about the coaches and let them do their jobs. If they felt your son could be in a certain spot or situation, they would be there.
Come on SSC you are saying to everyone in here that if those 2 players were in the lineup you would of won the game. So what you are also telling us is that you don't have anyone in your bench that can come and fill in those spots. You, and most other teams in here talk about how great your teams are. How great can your team be if you can't rely on your bench. I understand their is a drop between starters and bench players, but that much off a drop, like you make it sound.
Well, Messi and Neymar were out. They have a lot of impact.
I think it is funny how the best teams cant seem to get along. After the top 7 it seems we all know our place. Maybe we can win a game but to consistently compete with the top level would be a tough task and a bit too much to look for. I think it is great that NJ has such good players, making these great teams. Most win or lose by one goal or a tough call and they all seem to be fairly close games. Start supporting one another, you dont need to fight over who is better.
1:12So what happened to Suarez? He was not a factor coming off the bench. LMAO!!!
2:01, you are correct but people love to hate on those doing well.
Let's get real MF and SSC. Most of this talk is ridiculous and kinda entertaining. The simple facts are that two great teams played each other and one won. It happens and does not mean that the winning teams is now a super team. There are many factors in what makes one team successful on any given day. One of the major factors is player availability, SAT,ACT, college visits and injured players. At this age all the way to the pros a team that is missing a couple of key starters and SSC's case two captions would greatly impact the team.I personally can not wait to see MF play SDFC this season and hope both teams are at their best form.
I just have one question? How come when SSC loses a game, they always come in here a say they were missing players.What, they can keep your superstars health!!!
Agreed, SDFC vs MF will be a good game. SSC vs MF is a good game too. Aren't they all good games for the most part based on the leagues they play in? No one wants to see MF or any other top team play #50 ranked team. So they win, or they lose, just play well.
10:23 well said! All good teams and anything can happen on any given Sunday.
