in a tournament like edp cup that has many divisions in an age group, how are the got soccer point values determined for each flight?
Other tournaments don't have any divisions in an age group? Points are still determined the same way, strength of the teams in it.
Some local EDP results:NY Hota 4-0 in the top flight! East meadow and Marlboro also had success in the top flight while Hudson scratched out a win and Marlton left with no victories at all.BOCA, perhaps flighted a bit too high had no wins and Howell had 1 win in the 3rd flight. NJF 1 win in the 4th flight and NJX 1 win in the 5th flight. Other then Marlboro and SJEB the NJ teams had a rough weekend.
First of all, the Falcon 7 as you call them were not all there. Second, nothing wrong with challenging the boys and playing up in a highly competitive u 16 group. Bash us all you want know, but this weekend gets us prepared to play the likes of you.
A might touchy aren't we 6:36. I was merely pointing out that the Falcons didn't show well against U16 and I was actually surprised that playing up would have that much of an impact , considering all the boys play against that age and older on Varsity and the fact that physically they are very close to same size as U16.
I would have bet money the top 3 u15 teams wouldn't be shut out in 4 straight games against u16. Never would have thought 1 year would make such a difference. Anyone else have comments?
The teams falcons played were not even top 10 teams and one ranked 20.
Just a bad weekend. I am sure they were missing key parts.
HS ball is totally behind club ball. Do not try to compare.A top u15 should compete against mid or bottom level u16... Not top u16 teams. Same mistake happens every year where parents think their child is soccer gifted. Keep on training
My sons team routinely plays (scrimmages) against top NJ U16 teams. They have not won them all and a majority of the time they tie or lose by a goal. NEVER have they lost by 3 or more goals. A mid level U16 team could hang with them but not for an entire game.
So SSC Super Seven, better known as the SSCSS, were the U16 Stronghold players that bad? Did they hold you back? It couldn't have been you (and I mean that), so what happened?
You people are retarded. Why the Hell does this conversation keep going? It is irrelevant and makes no sense.
Irrelevant how? SSC has been pounding their chests about their achievements and then decided to bring that bravado into the HS season. They upped the anti and played U16 stating that 7 Falcon players were needed to bring the U16 SSC team credibility. Then they got smoked. Someone asked why and now they disappear.
After looking at some of these EDP Cup scores I noticed that DOL might have been placed a few brackets too low. I heard they have half of team from Ironbound.Out of state teams dominated this age level. I seen some good soccer at this event. Congrats to all.
U15B Ocean Lightning did well in Bronze bracket at EDP Cup. 2 wins, a 1-0 loss to eventual winner of the bracket, and a tie in the 3rd place game. Good job boys.
2 wins a loss and a tie in the Bronze division?????? You Ocean people sure are funny. You did well in the MOSA Cup too I guess.
too be clear it wasn't 7 ssc falcons joining the spartans it was a couple of spartans joining the falcons. falcons got a beat down..it happens.go back to where you belong
Hey, the SSC Special 7 were not there in force either..so it was a couple of crappy u16's and a bunch of benchies playing...The real Falcons would have given the U16's what for!!I was told tonight that the Falcons will start to play U16 in parallel with their U15 schedule and they will be as successful at that level as they are at U15.
It has become clear that the SSC insiders don't think much of any of the players with the exception of a select few. Shame on them.
to 12/4 at 11:20. I don't know, DOL seems to have been at the right spot. They did have impressive wins over Holmdel and Wash Twshp, but a 0-0 tie and 1-0 in final. From what I saw, they looked to have 3-4 former IB players, but IB was not strong at all last year. So, it will be interesting to see how both clubs fair this year. Haven't seen what must be an updated version of IB yet. Will they improve through subtraction? Will DOL dramatically improve with these IB players? We'll see.
Impressive win over NJX and Washington Twp? When was the last time anyone said that
my point exactly.
The real insiders at SSC know the value of all the players we have in the U 15 age group. There is a reason we have over 50 players signed up on 3 maps teams and we experiment and have mobility via US club cards. watch and see what happens in the spring when it really counts. So bash all you want. We played up got our asses kicked and came away better players from a humbling learning experience. We don't have to be better than anyone, but only better than the U 15 team we play on that given day. we can't wait to play any of your U 15 teams this spring. Call us for a friendly, well be happy to play, then you can let your feet do the talking instead of your mouth.
Nice try putting down our 8-15 SSC players, hey maybe they'll go to your team? Fact is there is constant comp. for those coveted 8-15 spots, and players work hard for them. Later come spring state cups, coaching staff will decide the top 15-18 for state cup runs, and btw no guarantee that we'll win either, because it's hard to do and we know and respect the many good teams out there who could dethrone us. But this we can guarantee: We will give it our best shot and will play with class like we always do. The truely good U 15 teams out there know this and we have rivalries based on competitive respect. The wannabes get on here with some of our idiot parents ( yes , sadly every team/club has them )and foolishly jab and barb back and forth.....to prove what? So good luck to all NJ U 15 teams, especialy when you play out of state competition. We look fwd to seeing you on the playing fields soon.
the only thing that is clear is that you have an axe to grind with SSC. How can you possibly know how they feel about their players? You just want to stir up some trouble.
What happened was we got beat!plain and simple and no excuses, fielded the best team possible that weekend. it happens sometimes! we learn from it and move on, hopefully take it out on the likes of your team
no way 10:15 is a SSC insider, if you believe that, you are as much an idiot as him, falling for the oldest trick around, posting as if you from that team. Most of the SSC boasting is prob not their people anyway.
1:26 to 1:57 all SSC posts? Did you guys have a meeting? to 1:43, well put and I think everyone knows that SSC can lose but they are the team to beat.
SSC is a decent team but lets get down to earth and be real about some of these comments! Big kids and running soccer is an appropriate label for this team.How about the SDFC boys getting beaten in this new adventure. Out from the championship round already and it's just the beginning.Good luck for the rest of the season. See you in the spring.
SDFC out from the championship round. What do you mean?
