U15B - Competition is thick, diverse and talented

What can we say? You just have to read it--better than Leno and Letterman, any day. This age bracket attracts a lot of attention and several teams have very different rosters going into Fall 2013. Better than ever.

Marlboro still showing some kick and run but that works to their advantage on such crappy fields. SSC should beat them. Will be a good game though.

SDFC Is in the finals....beating YMS today. 3 0

Congrats to Marlboro and SSC...

The field was too small and the center if the field was rarely used. Nj cup shame on you for thinking that field was playable

Anonymous said...

Marlboro played a man down for 90% of the match. Marlton was not able to take advantage and only scored on a pk. Marlboro was the grittier team on this day. Too bad my daughters team didn't follow suit

Anonymous said...

As I said prior the team that wins makes them the better team today but not necessarily the better team. From what I saw both teams played with heart and had chances, Marlboro had a few that just missed while marlton had a few very well hit shots that went right to the keeper. Field was deplorable and the refs were worse although I think the calls went our way it didn't stop me from shaking my head in disbelief. Parents were fine with the exception of one parent who didn't say anything wrong but shut up already. Good luck to Marlboro in the finals and good luck tho SSC also.

Field was shockingly bad. Embarrassing. Along with terrible surface everywhere, at least two ENORMOUS dirt patches right in the middle of the field. Simply amazing for an event of this caliber to be played on these conditions. Absolutely impacted play of game, for all.

Stronghold are you really going there. In the semifinal game your coach used the f bomb multiple times, and we all heard it. He directed it at opposing players and referees. This guy was a maniac and you were winning, I can only imagine how he would act while losing. Thanks Marlboro for taking them down a notch (the coaches, not the kids). I thought the SSC parents were fine, almost cordial, but the coach was a jerk.

Why remove all of the SDFC posts? All they said was that SDFC was going to show Marlboro how much better they are. No foul language, no names. Honestly, I don't even think SDFC wrote them but the censorship wasn't needed.

April 4, 2014 at 9:12 AM, any new thoughts Krystal Ball?

Krystal Ball's Top Ten
1. SSC Falcons- as def champs of both state cups, deserve the perch until someone in NJ knocks them off
2. SDFC Rangers- 2:2 with SSC shows the rumors of their demise to be just that- rumors! They are still legit!
3.Marlton -5:1 over Marlboro impressive, they are def more than one trick pony I keep hearing about
4.Morris STA Gunners- new and improved version looks to make some noise this spring
5.PDA Messi- trickle down from academy pool always seems to help this team
6.Howell- tough to duplicate last year's double runs to finals, but will be reckoned with
7.SJEB - always seem to be competitive and in the mix
8.Hudson- they accumulate got soccer points by hook or crook, but their wins merit a place
9.Marlboro- loss to Marlton knocks them down a few pegs, but dangerous when on
10. Ironbound- don't care what name they go by or who they have or who they lost, as long as soccer is played on Ferry St, they'll be good!
Dark Horses/ on the bubble:
Parsippany- will new kids on the block continue to rise?
Hans Soliz- who are these guys?
Flemington- rising western NJ star?

Congratulations to Marlboro for winning the championship. It was a great semi final game between our two teams and Marlboro showed great heart by competing a man down for almost the entire game. The small field that everyone complained about prior to the match turned out to be a blessing for you and you held on. Both teams played as well as they could on that pit they called a pitch. Great job beating Stronghold in the final, they are a top team and you deserve credit for two tough victories.

Anonymous said...

Marlton still a favorite to get to the NJYS Finals. Favored to play SDFC but perhaps Marlboro has another run in them. All will occur in Manalapan. Good luck to these fur teams. SSC will be shut out of a State Cup Championship for the first time in a long time, time for them to show the depth they speak about. You can be sure they will be bringing in some new talent.

I was sitting on the sideline watching the game behind the bench - the stronghold coach - apparently a former Mls player that no one has ever heard of - may be the worst ambassador for youth sports in the history of youth sports. He antagonized players, coaches and refs with what you can only call a bully mentality. Parents - you should think twice about having this person be around your children - this is 2014 not 1985.

Predictions for NJYS State Cup this weekend

SDFC v Marlboro

Will be a fairly tight game as Marlboro will look to play defense mainly and will catch SDFC on a break maybe two. SDFC however, will possess the ball more than Marlboro.

-Score: Marlboro 2 SDFC 0

Marlton v Jersey Knights

Marlton will be looking to avenge their defeat to a man-down Marlboro squad from this past weekend and will run away with this one.

-Score: Marlton 3 Jersey Knights 0



Anonymous said...

Hold on am I reading this right. Marlboro best marlton and they were a man down most of the game. How the hell did that happen. Marlton you are always on here there must be some reason Please tell us. You told us how you killed them earlier so be consistent and give us the story here too.

Anonymous said...

My prediction is Marlboro will come out strong not defensively and put one in early. SDFC will answer and then the battle will begin with Marlboro winning it 2-1. I believe the goalies play on both sides will be the key difference.

My prediction is Marlton won't be challenged. Knights live off the fast break but that doesn't work when you play someone that's so defensively sound like Marlton. 3-0.

SDFC by 2, 3-1 victory

Here's a little known fact about SDFC. The bowed out of the state cup and forfeited their opportunity for nationals to try and win the EDP region 1. As luck will have it they lost in the EDP finals. With that being said they do not have a free ticket to the national tournament. The only chance they have is winning the second state cup to advance to the regionals.

Anonymous said...

4:51 you should really do better research before coming onto this site with false information. Everything you posted about SDFC is inaccurate other than they forfeited their quarter final game of the NJ Cup to participate in the USYS Region 1 premier league semis/finals this past weekend, which is not sponsored by EDP as you stated or US Club.

SDFC finished first in USYS Region 1 premier league and advanced to the semi finals and ultimately onto the finals.

As a result of their performance in the Region 1 Premiere League SDFC has already secured a place at the USYS Regionals this June that will be held in Rhode Island. In addition to that SDFC has also qualified for the USYS National League for a second year in a row.

You can call it poor planning or a dumb decision but SDFC will be playing at the highest levels again next year and had to make the decisions they did to ensure they continue to compete at the highest levels Nationally & Regionally in 2 leagues that you can not just apply for entrance but must qualify for entry by performance.

Do your research and you will find this to be true.

9:39 you also should do your research. Your facts are also incorrect. In order to qualify for the USYS National League a team must place #1 or 2 in your region's premier league or place # 1 or 2 in the preceding season of the USYS national league.

So I have either witnessed coaches from the following teams behave "out of line" or have witnessed it myself: Marlboro, SSC, Marlton, Hudson, Galacticos and Howell. These are all very good teams that are ranked very high or fairly high in the state.
Do you think kids would rather play for these type of coaches and win or play for coaches that act 100% proffessional but don't produce succesful teams. Maybe part of winning and being succesful involves this type of brash behavior. I am sure there are more coaches that I missed but these are the ones I thought of off the top of my head.

You will see inconsistent scores from many of the top teams for this exact same reason. Everyone please grow up, and Marlboro it seems like it is just your turn.

Regarding the poaching comment, I cant tell you how or when they came to Marlboro but I do know that SDFC has different players on it now. I am willing to guess that the poster who wrote that also has new players on his team and he is just fine with that.

Marlboro and Howell's behaviour at Delco was THE absolute poorest example of NJ soccer in all aspects, No matter the results and or rankings those two teams will never get any respect. Howell was severely outplayed and looked as if they were overflighted. By the way the Howell parents and coach acted, I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't invited back. Marlboro's kick and run worked, but when it came to the big game they clearly lack possession and countered with physical play. In the end they were tired, beat and the volume of the uneducated parents indicated such.

If your sons teams didn't perform as well as you would have liked over the weekend doesn't mean you should trash another teams accomplishment over their weekend. The Columbia Invitational looked to be a competitive tournament on paper. I say well done Holmdel Sounders

If it is about points then there wouldn't be any if there wasn't good teams. That's how points are earned. MAPS team. Big deal

If you are to look at the Jersey Knights performance this past weekend I am not sure how they keep the state cup game closer then a 3 goal loss. That would be an accomplishment. Marlton will roll into the finals legs intact.

SAC Columbia Invitational is a quality tournament. No town teams there. Very good competition with teams from VA & MD. Not sure what the earlier poster meant.

For Marlton's sake let's just hope the kids run those legs as much as you run your mouth.

1:27, how was that comment needed? It is an opinion, prediction of what will occur on Saturday. Do you truly think that the Galacticos have a legit shot at winning that game? If you do, that is your opinion and I don't think you should be demeaned.

Updated NJ Rankings

1. Marlboro - After winning the NJ Cup they currently sit atop of NJ and will until someone knocks them off, potentially this weekend.

2. SDFC - Good results as of lately but, nothing too spectacular. Should be a great semi-final matchup vs. Marlboro on Saturday.

3. Marlton - Very, very consistent year on the whole. Also doing very well in EDP as of late.

4. Stronghold - Definitely, they have had a down year as of their standards but still a very good team.

5. South Jersey Barons - Have done well in EDP thus far but still very mixed results across the board. Interesting 3-0 thumping of Marlboro in EDP.

6. Morris STA - Very good year as they are ranked in nation's top 30 on got soccer. It should also be noted that they lost to Stronghold in quarters of state cup in PKs.

7. Howell - It's very unclear as to what level team they are, due to their inconsistency but, for whatever reason, they seem to give every team in NJ a true run for their money.

8. Hudson - Tied Stronghold this season in EDP however, have had some shocking results like the 4-0 loss to Marlboro in the NJYS state cup.

9. Holmdel - After winning the Columbia Tournament this past weekend in MD, they have proven that they may be on the rise. Great tourney, solid win. It should be noted that they were able to tie the MD state champs and advance.

10. Jersey Knights - Great season for this team as they advanced to both state cup semis regardless of how they did so but still definitely a large notch lower than the top 4-6 teams in NJ.

Howell is not a soccer team, they have almost no skill at all. NJ Force is better then Howell and Jersey Knights and Holmdel. Although Holmdel did impress this past weekend.

According to their record Knights have owned Force so why would they be considered better coach?

Owned? Come on you know who the better team is

How has Galacticos owned NJ Force? They tied every time they played except for one time NJ Force beat them in the Jersey Shore Invitational light years ago. NJ Force plays in EDP against quality teams. Also NJ Force had to really play games to advance in the NJ Cup losing to SDFC 11-10 in pk's. I think that's pretty good. Not saying that NJ Force is the best team out there, but they are better than Jersey Knights.

it really went that far in PK's? Must have been stressful.

Anybody at the SDFC v Malboro game? Score?

Marlboro in pk's

How come SDFC's game is so variable? Marlton should win it all.

Galacticos!!!!! Now shut up

Galaticos stun Marlton in the last minute of doubt OT 2-1.
Marlboro beats SDFC 2-1 in pks (6-5).
Marlboro vs SDFC was a great game both teams missed a bunch of looks.

Marlboro vs Jersey Knights tomorrow in the final.

Congrats to Marlboro for showing on various occasions over the past few weeks that they deserve the #1 Nj ranking

Marlton no need to be a sore loser

6:54 That was your prediction going into the semis today. Marlton 3-0 against Galacticos, only it worked against you. Not a Galacticos parent, but when your team wins it is always a great win and you guys have issues when anybody posts a comment that their team's loss was self inflicted. Funny you are saying the same exact thing now. Accept your defeat graciously and stop belittling your opponent.
