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.

Ah, so now the rocket scientists on this board are discussing games that were "close" - whatever that might be. A week ago the same people were making fun of people who discussed games as "close". What great youth soccer minds this board has - with such intelleligent insight into the youth game.

Marlton wins again. Elite 8 anyone!!

Anonymous said...

Went and scouted Marlton tonight, they won 5-1 over wall in state cup. Surprised about how they played. The fast striker up top had 0 goals. There midfield was solid. Different team than i thought i was going to watch. Although they only did play Wall...
Goals:
#80 - 1 goal
#26 - 1 goal
#22 - 2 goals
#10 - 1 goal

Anonymous said...

I am a parent from wall and thought that Marlton was very good team. Midfield was solid but Defense not so much an the stricker you talk about played well setting up most of the goals and being doubled up most of the game thought he did well. Don't know how much further they will get though

Anonymous said...

Agree with 10:55 there back line didn't look so good but the striker did not have 1 assist the whole game?? 4 out of the 5 goals came through midfield and the other goal was a shot from the 40... Not sure why everyone is so worried about him

Anonymous said...

To both posters above. Defense not so good? You scored 1 goal vs Marlton's 5. If Marlton defense was only so so then are you saying your offense is really that bad? Funny comments.

Anonymous said...

Worried about who, the striker? Don't believe what his parents write on here about him. The self promotion with this kid has always been an issue. Wall, seriously. You are going to critique our game? Did you put any passes together? Your defense was flat footed at best and horrible is a better way to put it. To the person who came and scouted (south jersey barons), hope you learned something.

The stricker is their best player every time we play them he is the guy to watch

How about we stop taking about individual players quite so much. This is starting to get a little ridiculous.

Anonymous said...

So who wins tomorrow? Washington or SJEB?

Anonymous said...

To the Marlton parent berating Wall defense as being horrible, it implies that your team scored at will against a "horrible defense". Marlton is doing well, let the trainer and the players do their job and stop obsessing about what others think. A single good player does not make a team good, most of their players are good/decent.

SJEB by 2 or 3.

5:18: Yes SJEB were fortunate today as was your team(Marlton) against Cape Express. Washington dominated 30 mins of a 90 min game. Were you not watching or do you not understand soccer. Teams do have bad days. SDFC goes through after 2 PK games, does it mean they are just getting lucky? No. They are still leading their group in Premier League. Funny things happen in State Cup games. Marlton coach and kids were scouting the Wahington/ Barons game. Don't tell me the super egotistical Marlton team is concerned!!
6:00: What gives you so much confidence that Marlton will handily defeat Barons? What if they do? Still does not make you an elite team.

Anonymous said...

6:00 what makes you so sure a Marlton person wrote that? For the record I would venture to say no one at Marlton thinks they will handily beat SJEB. It will be a good game with two good teams. If any of you folks actually knew the coach and players you would know thats not how they think or talk. Amazing how much bull shit is written on here by people that no nothing. Also who on here said that if Marlton beats team X that it makes them an elite team? I honestly think that the majority of people on this blog don't even know how to read.

You are still missing the point and again proving you don't know how to read. The point was that I said I don't think it was anyone from Marlton that ever said they would beat SJEB handily.

I was also at the game today and I think the correct word is obnoxious instead of uneducated. The parents were calling for blood and they have a blonde haired mother that should be expelled from the fields. She has a very foul mouth and verbally assaults the kids and opposing team’s parents. I believe she is the single reason the teams parents have such a bad reputation. Having money doesn’t mean people have class.

It's unfortunate how bad some referees can be allowing the game to turn into a battle zone. The game between SDFC and TSF was the perfect example. No wonder parents get pissed off.

Cry much SDFC. Game shouldn't have been that close, you should have dominated and you didn't.

Why are people even discussing Marlboro on here? It was a fluke that they beat Howell and have zero chance winning their next game. They are a well rounded town team with a couple of out of town players. That’s it! Lets call a spade a spade….

Anonymous said...

I agree! SDFC should have scored at least two or three goals against TSF. The margin was dangerously close and either team could have taken the match. From reading this blog and following all of the team scores online. It seams that SSC has settled down with their new players and still the obvious top seed for both cups. They added a very large fast striker, two quick forwards and a very solid new defender.

Anonymous said...

It seams to me that SDFC is not as strong as they have marketed them their team to be. Going to PK’s means both teams we’re evenly matched and there is no clear winner from the match. The PK’s are in place to move the tournament along.

However SDFC is a very dangerous team and will do extremely well this season!!

Anonymous said...

9:23, Who is discussing Marlboro with the exception of you? If the win was a fluke you must have been there to make such a statement. 2+2 = a disgruntled Howell parent. Sorry your team lost, but to be so transparent and classless is an another leap for you.

Not so sure dominant is the correct word to use for SSC and SDFC. They have been, but this is a new year and new players. They have NOT proven to be dominant, but have shown to be a top team. Who have they dominated? They have won yes but a dominant team doesn't squeak by and lose games they shouldn't.

Having recently played (my son) SSC and lost this past Saturday. Not the result I wanted but I have to say they are clearly the top team in the state. As a father my heart was in my throat the whole game. It was a great game and SSC won by simply staying calm throughout the game and played soccer 101. They are very fast, well put together and complete lots and lots of small passes. Their defense is very fast/strong, their wings are fast and their center mid controlled the tempo of the game. Like I said not the result I wanted and wish them the best in winning the tournament.

NJX was a great team that no longer exist. They led the state for about five straight seasons. A very strong combination of boys. As things happen in life the team split up. Some kids went to the Sounders, one is now at SDFC, one is now on SSC, one moved to CT, one moved to PA, etc.... The point is enjoy the game the boys are playing and keep it positive.

4:06 here. The SDFC vs the SSC game is the real final to both tournaments. Whoever wins the next game is sure to have a cake walk and win the championship. My opinion is based on both teams’ records and accomplishments. The other bracket is made of filler teams. Don’t forget that based on last years success SSC still has an open invite to the nationals. No other U15B team in NJ has that at the moment.

I would not be surprised if SJEB beat Marlton.
Late goal or PKs.

4:30 Hope your predictions stand true. Both SDFC and SSC have lost premier players, they are different teams this year. Don't get me wrong, both are very good teams but the fillers could give both the teams a run for their money.

Anonymous said...

Why does everyone think SSC lost their best players? Three went to RB yes but the other 15 did not. 2 of the three players were injured for the majority of the season anyway. Do you know that other SSC players were also offered spots at RB & Union but did not accept? SSC filled the open positions with quality players with comparable talent. If you know anything about soccer you would know that every year each team looses about 3-4 players. It's normal. However the 2014 team has about ten games under their belt now and fully operational.

people argue back and forth as to which of these is number 1, but there is no doubt these are the top two non academy teams at U 15.

The Falcons won both state cups and finished as regional semi finalist. However they don't match up well with SDFC in head to head comp. SDFC also tends to fare better at tournaments v out of state comp. Despite the idiocy on here, i find this to be a rather healthy, respectful rivalry over the past two years.

The rest:
3.Marlton
4.Marlboro
5. STA-Morris

10:44 FYI...
YMS is about 30 minutes of travel time from Plainsboro, NJ. The YMS Premeire '98 Team is a great group of young men totally dedicated to the sport and team. The team is led by a "ONE TEAM" coach, who has a prepared practice session each and every time. He also is a great game day tactician, as well. The team participates in all the high profile college showcases as well. If interested look up the team's info through Got Soccer or through the team's Website just Google it.

Mr Plainsboro,

I thought YMS was a very good team, and still do, but my son hasn't played them in years so I looked them up. Interestingly, they lost to Marlton last time they played and lost to Marlboro the last two times they played. If those are the 3 choices it may factor into things. You also may want to look into Match Fit as I believe they just lost their academy status and are located very close to you, West Windsor area.

Actually, the YMS coach comes across not too well. He often acts out like a lunatic on the sideline. Oh, and many of the parents are not much better. It is a pretty funny scene to watch when they lose a game. They are a good team and one that is disciplined but their antics on the sideline are a little much. Not talking about the players here.

Anonymous said...

Do the top teams really care about State Cups anymore? Obviously the parents do, but isn't the plan to get these kids into college now by providing them with the best showcase opportunities - Disney, Jeff Cup, CASL etc?

It is fun to talk about which teams will win in which match up, but how much do the kids actually care about the in state games?

Just asking the questions and I'll prepare for the abuse as everyone assumes I am from one team or another.

The center mid scored the first goal from 20+ yards out and got the assist in the second goal. He's the money man on the team and to beat them you need to shut him down. He's big, fast and very tricky. Double team or triple team him if you have to. He's the biggest danger they have.

8:13 Seem very confident about the Marlton vs SJE matchup in the NJ Cup! What is your score prediction?
Marlton definitely not above SDFC and no I am not a Ranger parent.

Can SJEB beat Marlton, of course. Do I think they will, No. I am not an SDFC parent either, nor a Marlton parent. It is a prediction based on what I have seen.

9:52 Think SJE beat Marlton the last two times they met.

9:30 this is 9:10. Please clarify earned? I don't know who sends their kids to South America for training. However if I had the means to offer foreign soccer training I would. I beleive in giving your kids everything you can.

8 13 just automatically assumed SDFC would beat SSC for his likely final 4 , gee wonder where he's from?

Anonymous said...

LOL he's a overly confident SDFC father. I hope they lose just to teach him a lesson.

SJEB will beat Marlton 2-1

SDFC will beat SSC 3-1

What is the Story with Jersey Premier Soccer. They seem to be making a run at the NJ Cup.

Never heard of them, but they beat Hudson in what looks like PK's. Not sure if Hudson is so good anymore, but they cant be bad so a good win regardless. Good luck to them, always good to see a new team do well.

Marlton/SJB and SSS/SDFC should be a double header at RB Stadium based on the headlines here.

Speaking of RedBull stadium, does anyone know where the semi finals will be held for each of the state cups?

JPS I relatively new to the area and have been able to put together a nice team. They may be the Dark Horse into the semis and should not be overlooked. May give Marlboro a tough time in the quarters.

Where has Ocean been? Haven't heard much since their recent State Cup loss.

3:04, "a nice team" "give a tough time", you base this on what? Have you seen them play? Who do they play? Where are they even from? For all I know they are a new all star team just put together but I wouldn't make random statements and think they mean anything.

Sounds like 3:35 has his period!

Anonymous said...

Yes I have seen them play. Their ball movement was very good, very well organized and they have some good speed on the flanks.

3;35 must be a Marlboro parent on his period.

Whoever it is really doesn't matter. It will be a good game.

3:35 is very hostile.

Defending 3:35 for a moment. Have you seen them play? If not, what are you basing the information on? I think that is what 3:35 was looking for.

People always guessing who posted what. Don't forget that there are other people in here Not just SSC and marlton people

What is with Manhattan Soccer Club? 6 goals against SDFC, winning games by big margins.

Anonymous said...

Manhattan is good, real good. Not a team with much hoopla, just goes out and wins. Strong players all around.

JPS not very technical but strong. They can kick the long ball well. \hey have won 2 state cup matches by pks?

Anonymous said...

Exciting times for Jersey Premier, hope to keep on moving forward. Good group of kids and parents. Not sure about the lack of technical comment but I suppose that is all in the eye of the beholder.

PDA Messi, not a good showing at a the State Cup. What is up with them?

Anonymous said...

12 23 i have just the opposite prediction : marlton will beat SJEB 2-1 and SSC will beat SDFC 3-1

Anonymous said...

10:37, you might just be right. They are all 4 quality teams and can win or lose on any given day.

Regarding PDA Messi, they have never been a consistent team. They have games where they show very well and have others where they don't perform. Maybe they have a large roster and play different players. Maybe they just don't have the heart, who knows.

Does Marlboro still have that loose cannan goalie this year?

Anonymous said...

SDFC lost by six? I'm not surprised as they lost 4 of their best kids. It happens to all teams at one time or another.

Anonymous said...

Accurate description of PDA Messi above. I think it is more of roster changes than heart.

Good luck to JPS , the new kid on the block. Curious to see what happens when you play one of the top dogs

10:58. Yes.
