U16B - Competition is thick, diverse and talented

What can we say? This age bracket attracts a lot of attention and several teams have very different rosters going into Fall 2014.

Better than ever.

Region 1 at this age bracket offers a lot of talent at the top of the rankings.
U16 Boys soccer is where the action is.

EDP schedules are up, how is it possible that Howell is in the 1st division and Holmdel is in the 2nd division? What thought process was used to put a lower ranked team in the top division?

Anonymous said...

Could have been at Holmdel's request.

Anonymous said...

Why would they do that? On the flip side why would Howell want 1st division. There are some 2nd division teams that deserve it ahead of Howell and Holmdel.

Look at the EDP standings from last year and you'll see the reasoning.

Howell top of division 2
Holmdel 2nd in MAPS elite (division 3)

Holmdel are a high school based team so don't focus on tournaments. Doesn't mean they can't win games.

High School based team? What does that mean?

This Sunday, Marlboro or Marlton?

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing a postponement.

Why worry about one game? Why do you care?

Anonymous said...

The point of competition is to have a winner. Why do you think people shouldn't care?

Anonymous said...

Not sure why that person does not care but I don't care either. It is one match in a long season.

Anonymous said...

At what point do you start caring? Game 2,3,4,5? My son cares about every game he plays in.

Marlboro vs Marlton on Sunday any predictions?

Anonymous said...

I predict it will not be played. If it is, someone will win, someone will lose or maybe they will tie.

Yes, early games will be close to meaningless. At best these kids have been playing in a gym for past few months. Gonna take some time.

Being rusty when it comes to playing 11v11 full sided does not make early games meaningless. Competitive young men care about every single game therefore no game is meaningless.

I think the result could be considered less then meaningful but not quite meaningless.

I think the players and their coaches would disagree.

I think you, the parent, are a bit too involved.

Fact: each year the game changes. The speed of play will be faster than last year.

Each time a player steps onto a field they are gaining valuable experience. I think every game has coachable moments therefore every game is meaningful.

If you disagree, fine but explain in detail why so that we may all become as enlightened as you are.

Meaningful for development? Now you are asking a different question. Stick with the original point, that the game itself is meaningful.

Well im looking forward to a good game between the two teams.

If you are speaking of a match between Marlton and Marlboro, has there ever been one that was not competitive? Those are two good teams. Will not be played, will have too much snow.

Anonymous said...

The game hasn't even been played and parents are already making excuses saying the game is meaningless. In case his kid's team loses he can say they weren't ready.

All Friday games in the Alliance Cup are canceled. Hopefully, the rest of the tournament won't be.

I think he has a point. Some teams need practice to play at their best. The teams that rely on a few individuals won't be as affected.

Jeff cup cancelled...

Annandale cancelled Friday. If this storm keeps up I assume it totally cancel as well. This is brutal
