Location did suck.Fields not great but not horrible be honest...Draw? There has to be a winner and there has to be a loser. Next time just play better....Marlton
Why mention Marlton did they say anything about the game? You won, it's one game good job you must be the best team in the world.

SSC vs SDFC final
Duh! That can't happen..
Ocean for the win
Ironbound Milan loses 7-1 to Cape May?? What did they show up with 8 players??
Exciting day of soccer in the quarterfinals. All 8 teams should be proud, represented NJ soccer very well!
Who won today?
MF and SSC both won 2-1STA 2-1 and SDFC 4-2 both games went to OT
Ocean for the win???
That was before the game even started... Check the time of the post.
The 4 best teams in the state won today.
Not sure about that. NJX is very impressive. Much better team than STA. Very unlucky today. Not an NJX parent.
STA were a man down for 50 minutes and won....NJX sorry but that's not very impressive
NJX played FC Europa the day before state cup in Region 1 league...tough game the day before State cup when no other teams played Saturday. Poorly scheduled. Not an excuse for them but that could have played a part....how large or small I can't say. Tough weekend.
NJX barely win games. They are arrogant for no reason. Best 4 teams went through. End of story.
NJX parent bashing your coach (11:23). Every time Holmdel loses you blame it on your coach. NO wonder your kid changes teams all the time.
NJX is a vary capable and solid team, they can beat anyone on any given day. In any match there will be a winner and a loser, were they dominated? Was it a blowout? No, it was a very close match and one team moved on. The bigger question is how did Ocean only lose 1-0 to the mighty Match Fit?
How did SSC only win by 1, how did SDFC get taken to OT? All close games by tactically smart teams. Like Al Davis said, "just win baby".
Don't believe these teams are the top 4 in the state... Matchfit, Sdfc I agree but sat and Ssc can be replaced by Marlton or njx. One game dosent mean you are better, that day yes but not overtime.
NJX isnt even in the top flight of EDP. When they get to play the best teams on a consistent basis they can enter the conversation. For now, just continue to lose to them.
Is Marlton even that good?
SSC beat Marlton 3-1 two weekends in a row
SSC is better. New midfielder is making a big difference.
He can't possibly replace the kid who went to Redbulls.
Since u-11 the best teams in the state have been STa,SDFC, and SSC, Matchfit naturally belongs with them after being kicked out of the academy..
He is better.
Colleges must be pounding on his door then.
Any one dares to make predictions for both state cups
SDFC x Match Fit in the finals of NJYS cup.
Colleges don't pound on your door. You look to see if it is open
They do if you are better than an all-American, redbulls academy player. Don't be naive.
This kid tried out for every top team... Not that great, didn't do much in either game! (SSC parent)
Must have done something! Doesn't he take every throw-in and corner kick?
Hey 5:18 you sound a bit ungrateful.
Wow he takes every throw in. He is so good that they don't want him to receive the ball
No he takes throw in and receives the ball at the same time..you guys have not idea what you are talking..
Seriously. U can't be talking about wallhog I mean ballhog.
Reality is Redbull player is over rated.. Plays very few minutes at Redbull
If you really think he is an all American caliber player then you know nothing. Very slow, can't go to his left. Sorry that isn't someone that is an all American. Not sure how that bogus award happened. Maybe it was all the pk's he took after his teammates did the work
In other news, the NJ Cup 1/4 finals begin this week. The matchups are:SSC vs HolmdelSTA vs TSFMarlton vs SJEBBergenfield vs MarlboroSSC vs Holmdel, I wouldnt be surprised to see either come out with a win, both have speed up top and finishers to boot. Holmdel wins in PK's.STA vs TSF, STA is the favorite but TSF will put up a good fight. STA will hold on for a 2-1 victory.Marlton vs SJEB, a match between two teams that know each other well. There will be no surprises in this one, but SJEB defensive liabilities will hurt them again. Marlton 4-1 Bergenfield vs Marlboro, I guess Bergenfield could surprise us and maybe they added a lot of new players. Who knows? Who ever heard of them or saw them play before? I would think most are rooting for you though. Marlboro 3-0
SSC vs. Holmdel is easily the most intriguing match up. For my money they are the two best out of the 8 in it.
I agree, at least we know there will be some yelling. If SSC loses their coach will whine and yell at the NJX players. If NJX loses the parents will yell at the coach. Either way, drama.
With no Matchfit or SDFC, just feels like this is Europa league.
True, they both played with such domination over inferior opponents on Sunday.
Yes, winning isn't nearly as impressive as Holmdel, Marlboro, and Marlton losing. I see your point.
If anyone is trying to make a point that MF and SDFC are superior to other teams, MF and SDFC should be winning by huge margins. Why is that not happening?
12:03, good point. Take a look at who they played. Do you really think they are THAT much better then everyone else when they beat mid level teams. Not sure that there is an argument that they are the two best teams but the margin is not great at all. Hell Ocean almost beat MF.
Since Disney MF has beaten or tied 9 of the top 16 teams in the counrty. I know that the rankings can be a bit bogus at times. That doesn't change the level of competition they've played. Won one of the top flights in Disney, finalist at Jeff Cup, top seed at regional playoffs and in the semis of the NJ SC. Have they won every game, no. They win the important ones. No team can possibly get up for every opponent. Do you think Ocean gets pumped up to play the DOL Eagles? Probably not. I can assure you they got up to play us and for the most part played harder than us. It's only natural. How pumped up do you think sdfc was to play NJ force? Not very! Backs to the wall they turned it on and got the win. It's my guess no other u17 team has had the success MF has had this season. Other than very few, no one will have the chance to go to regionals or nationals. Thats the goal for this team, plain and simple.
Didnt get up for a SC game? Coaching issue. Relax MF, I cant think of a single person that doesnt think you are a top team.
MF easily forgets the fact that they are not in the academy league anymore. The academy league is more competitive than EDP. They weren't top in academy but now they can brag they're top in EDP. #1 in the state and 1 of the best teams in the country because got soccer says so!
Not the point of this forum however. On this forum MF is #1
Matchfit is a better team than most, can lose on a given day yes. sdfc is not much better than top 5 in New Jersey, Marlton beat them 2-0, Marlboro played them 4-3, really not much better than top teams in state.. Last year lost to Marlton in semifinals of state cup!
MF and SDFC have more depth than the other teams. SSC/Marlton/SJEB/Marlboro/Holmdel/ all have very good players but not a great 11 and certainly their benches are not as strong.
I agree with some of your predictions, but not all.SSC vs Holmdel Holmdel wins 3-2STA vs TSF TSF wins, it means more to themMarlton vs SJEB Marlton wins, they are betterBergenfield vs Marlboro Marlboro wins, they are better
I know TSF hates to lose but why would winning matter more to them?
I would think this is their chance to show they belong.
The two times that SDFC has faced NJ Force both games went to over time. Now I'm not saying NJ Force is better team because they are not, but they are team that goes out and tries to compete. They do a pretty good job of it.
Half the MF roster was never academy... That argument is not relevant anymore
Yes. The other half was heavily recruited top players off of their competitors
Boy, somebody is obsessed with MF... Don't worry about academy, it's all about colleges now.
If you call tryouts "recruiting" then you are correct. You probably should have come. Give me one example of a kid that was playing for a competitor and is now playing at MF. Nobody has come from the teams that are considered top 10 right now. None. more kids have left MF and are playing with other teams in top 10. Wish them the best. I'd say there are 5 kids on the team that were playing on mid level teams that came for a tryout.
The Daily MF Rhetoric. When will it stop.
So you don't stop opposing parents after games and ask them to come to MF? Be careful with your answer, truth hurts
Same old sour grapes. You made your choice, live with it.
Still can't come up with one kid, can you??
Actually many, you are an elitist and feel anyone NOT on your team is a mid level team. Certainly wont name them but you know the truth. When you say I made my choice you are supporting my claim, thanks.
Please enough about Matchfit. We do not care.
Actually not 1 kid from current top 10 in state. Not even 1 kid. You really don't know what you are talking about. Elitist...
STA 2 TSF 1 Great game of football, both teams looked sharp.
Both are good teams. STA is better but not by much.
Who won the sjb vs Marlton
SJEB 1 Marlton 0
Marlton just beat them 3-1 a week ago. Just shows you that anyone can win on any day. If anyone knows, how did this play out? Is the score indicative of the game?
Marlton goalie missed ball through his hands. Unlucky but happens.
So Marlton goalie is to blame for the loss? How about the zero for goals scored!!!
I didnt read that the goalie is to blame, I read that is how the goal happened. Touchy?
The zero goals scored of course would be a problem, cant win if you dont score. A little surprising, SJB have been giving up goals and Marlton is known to be able to score. These are two teams that know each other well, might even have HS teammates on opposing teams.
Ten posts without mentioning MF. MF rules!
Holmdel just about to show everyone why they will play the semis on their home turf.
Holmdel down 1-0 one minute in.
How did that happen.
Holmdel will have home field advantage in the semis. A special viewing section will be set up for them.
Final 3-1 I could have been 6-1
No excuses. Stronghold was the better team today. Score line is not and would never be that lopsided though. 6-1 get real. SSC has won 1 and lost 3 vs Holmdel in the past 2 years. Loss happens to be at the worst time for Holmdel and best for stronghold. NJ soccer is good. Deal with it.
Watch the rest of the tournament on your fields. Learn to lose with class
what? Your saying we're classless? We said you won. We said congratulations and good luck. Wtf is your deal looking for more than that?
Learn to win with class.
Not talking about the players The parents on the holmdel side were well, bitter to say the least
***Wanted*** U17 boys Head CoachNo experience necessary- looking to stop daddy ball please send all resumes to director of coach
If a team loses to a very good team the coach is too blame? Doesn't make sense and is unreasonable
Did the very good team your referring to start their best midfielder? I bet they did...
Games played today or cancelled due to rain?
MF 4-1 over Marlton.
Ssc 2Force 1
SSC. Big weekend. Keep fighting
