So you are saying that if you had a defense you would be better. Thanks for backing me up.
No señor smug.He is saying they have been forced to move players around due to considerable injuries. Holmdel is a very good team. Why your trying to crucify them only you know.
Actually "I" was defending them. The poster only confirmed what a different poster stated about their defense. And since I am smug, it is you're NOT your.
When did you defend them? 1:41, 2:32 and 3:47 (that is you)....well done going to their defense....it reads more like attacking their defense
Assume you do.
Master yoda you are not.
Predictions seem ok, but to have Marlton losing both semi final games is not realistic. Keep sleeping.
1:57 please tell us what team your son plays for. I'm dying to know. Even if it's on one of the teams you reference here, it would be so insightful to know.
4:59, why or how will it matter? It is someones opinion. I guess they didnt pick your team?
Actually they did and it was not my team, but my son's. Just interested in how someone knows so much. I'd like to see how I can get that educated.
Nobody likes Marlton to win in even being in both that's surprising.
5:40. Watch your sons games and you will be
Yes you are the best
BBL Elite vs Leading Edge would be an unreal game to watch. Looking forward to the matchup this summer.-Lars Tiffany
NJcup predictionsMarlton/Marlboro MARLTONSSC/STA SSCMarlton/SSC SSC
That'll happen only if SSC isn't missing 4 or 5 sterters
This weekend's games will be interesting. A game between two great teams in STA and SSC will be close, and the Marlboro Marlton rivalry should come down to the wire. Any combination of winners will make a competitive final. Exciting week of soccer all around.
STA will beat SSC. Wouldn't call SSC a great team
You wouldnt call SSC a great team? I would love to see your definition of great when it comes to youth soccer. There are really only 4 maybe 5 teams in the entire state that could beat them, so what are you talking about.
I don't think anything should be taken away from SSC. They have a respectable program which has been at the top for awhile now.
11:52 is just jealous. Good luck to all teams still in it.
Lets cut the BS here. My son plays for one of the top 3 teams and its a lot of fun saying who is best in NJ. The truth is that most boys would be happy and lucky to play for in no order MF/SSC/SDFC to play or any of the teams. They are the clear top three and will continue to be. Any team can beat the other any day and why it is so exciting. So let's call a spade a spade and stop bashing the top three. I would say that Marlton, Marlboro and STA are very close but just a small notch behind. All six teams represent NJ well. So if you son is not part of the top he needs to get better to make it. Nuff said!
We are spoiled here in NJ. We have a number of teams that can compete on a National level. Instead of just feeling good about that some feel the need to tear each other down. Enjoy it folks, it's all over in a couple of years!
4:09You sound so arrogant and full of yourself. Not everybody wants to be on one of those teams for many different reasons.What about teams in academy league? Red Bulls, PDA, Philly Union? there is ASL League.You live in a bubble. What is the grand prize? These are your glory days and you're living through your son.
Yeah 4:09 you probably don't even play academy footy, red bulls would wipe the floor on any of those teams. Literally wouldn't be close.
Yes, just like Match Fit would right? To be clear, of course RB is better. They draw from a 3 hour radius, they better be better as a team.
4:09"So if you son is not part of the top he needs to get better to make it. Nuff said!"Funny you say that, so I guess all kids playing academy are better then the top. So why don't you work with your kid so he can get better and play with the above the top players.
By Match Fit's own admission, they took a step down by leaving Academy league.SO how can they be one of the top 3 teams in NJ? Red Bulls, NJCSA, and PDA are all above them. Match Fit was never at the top of academy league. Anyway, why do you want to act so childish and try to rub it in that my team's better than yours? At the end of the day, what are you getting?
4:09 does sound a bit pompous. All of the MLS academy teams, RBs, Philly U, DC United, etc. are better teams than the best club teams. That doesn't mean they can't be beaten by some of the teams but in a series they would win fairly handily. They should be better, far more resources and they are even bringing in international kids. Not saying some of the kids playing club can't make those teams. The MLS system is there to identify a very few kids that may have national team ability and they are going to start trying to find them younger and younger. This is the reason why they are accepting clubs at U14 level only. U16 is too late in their mind to find those special kids. In Europe you are an old man at 16. It's what Klinsman and US Soccer wants. Doesn't mean our kids can't have great careers in college and a few to the MLS if that's what they want to do.
MatchFit is Still top 3 in NJ. Add in all and still top 3.
Academy league don't count? MF is a good team but I'm not sure that they're top 3 in NJ. That's an opiniot, not fact
What do you mean academies don't count. He said if your son is not past of the top. Academies are top!!!
Last season didn't this MF team beat Red bulls, PDA and NJCSA(when they were NJSA)? I could of swore I saw on the ussda standings they beat them
No one would notice that except MF. Why would teams that play in EDP keep tabs on academy standings?
5:42He is correct, that team did beat RB, PDA and NJCSA.
Any score predictions on Boca MF game today?
Vegas has MF as a 7 point favorite. Who cares!? Hopefully it will be a competitive game. Good luck to all teams this weekend.
This is 4:09. My son has an open invite from RB and the Union. We choose not to play at either academy because education is the number one priority in our family. My son has top notch grades and does not want to play professional soccer. Therefore there is no reason to play academy soccer. We want him to play high level soccer and focus on college as my other children did. This is not my first rodeo. Most of you idiots have a distorted dream that your sons have a chance to play professional and can not even make academy. The best part for me is that my son is denying what you guys want most.
Wow. You must be a great father. Keep up the good work 4:09
Marlton 1-0 against Marlboro.
SSC 3 STA 2 final in overtime
Marlton's luck thus far will run out against SSC tomorrow. Prediction: 3-1
Yes "luck". Marton was totally outplayed and got a lucky loose ball goal in front of the net.
Last time I checked winning 5 cup games straight and 2 of them being match fit and Marlboro isn't luck. SSC will be a good team and it will be a great game but win or lose Marlton should be where they are
6:24 wow, what a sore loser. And to collectively think that we all thought you guys had more class. You are single handiidly embarrassing Marlboro as a team. A shame because you guys are good. Guess that loose ball in front of the net magically got down there too. Both teams are pretty evenly matched and it is always a slug fest. Both teams coached well and with passionate players. Guess it's also luck we are in the semi next week too. Not making any predictions about any games, but really?
Not having any insight on Marlton or SSC I believe tomorrow's game will be very good. I'm putting my money on SSC. They are a very consistent team and if they are healthy they will win.
I saw both games as they were next to each other. Both were excellent games. Both could have had a different winner. Both winners deserved to move on. To see those 4 teams represent the final four in nj was great to see. Add in MF and SDFC and you will see that nj is in great shape. Good luck to ssc and Marlton tomorrow
Like I said before. Marlboro are paper champions and were very lucky last season.
9:25. Not sure what you mean by paper champion but they won 2 state cups. Played in the semis today and are a top regional team. Have beaten every top team in the past 2 years. SDFC, ssc, MF, Marlton, etc. I would say that is pretty darn good. You can continue to be bitter and envious all you want. The top teams know who they are and all show respect for each other with the exception of SSC who think they are above all.
I'd like to see Marlton over SSC.Stronghold maybe the better team but I don't want to see them win.Good luck Marlton.
I think SDFC and MF are the most arrogant teams in NJ. SDFC has proven they are a talented group of boys. MF is new and recently demoted from the supposed high level academy league.
SSC are very arrogant. Even when they lose they always make excuses about missing key players or ref decisions, If you can't accept defeat, you have a problem,
Every team sucks. Except for my son's team. We clear now?
SSC 2015 state cup CHAMPIONS
Congrats. SSC is a great team, just ask them Good luck next week in the NJYS
Wow 3:29 you sound like you are a sore looser or jealous .
Stronghold 2 Marlton 1.
Congrats to SSC Magnificent 18. Well done boys
Great Job SSC!! Congratulations on today's win.
Great Job SSC - Congratulations on a great win
Magnificent 18??? Pompous
Congratulations to SSC today. Job well done
Great job SSC.
Hahahahahahaha ouch. Rebuttle?
As a poster above mentioned NJ is well represented in this age group and each of the elite teams brings something different to the table: SDFC has done the best at prestigious out of state tournaments, SSC has been the most consistent team since U 11 and their 7th trip to either state cup final today proves it, Marlboro hardly a paper champion as their double last year was no fluke and they continue to play well, Matchfit brings some much needed academy swagger to the age group, Marlton is the most improved team as their commitment to professional training has changed their once one dimensional style to more well rounded play, and STA Gunners prove the old saying " on any given day " as they always play the big boys tough. So congrats to all!!!
Hey 4:09. No one has an open invite to RB and or Union. That's a nice way of saying your son can train with them but not good enough to be signed. That is why you bounce from team to team etc. Bet your son can't even stay on one HS team ?
12:30 I know who the boy is and RB and The Union would love to have him. Like his family said education in #1 and they choose not to bring him there. Stop the jealousy
Way to go SSC
Nice job SSC
All BS. Not a chance if it is the kid who plays for SSC
You guys are hard up just don't believe that other boys are simply better than your son. There are many boys that can play academy and choose not to. The earlier post is correct that education in more important then club, HS or academy soccer.
I'm happy I just checked this. the boy most definitely does not play for SSC but another team from north NJ.
I was at the final yesterday as my son had a game at the fields a little later in the afternoon. The boys on both teams played their hearts out 100%. Very hard fought and very hard won.
8:00No one is saying that education is not important, there are a lot of kids that play academy, get good grades and attend tough high schools. Come on now, everyone knows that the RB and Philly, can almost guarantee you getting to the school that you want specially if you have the grades. RB has a couple of players in Georgetown at the moment and that is a really prestigious school.
Congrats SSC. Job well done. I personally enjoy the tough competition at each and every game we play. SDFC parent.
Finals yesterday was a great game, marlton scored 1st via a penalty kick. SSC scored before the half ended also with a penalty kick.. SSC came out strong 2nd half and was able to score a Goal in the first 10 minutes. It was some good soccer played by both teams. Congrats to both teams.
8:00 this is my first post in many months. Yes RB and Union can be used as a tool to get into college. That's the sales pitch of the Academy's in NJ. My older son played for the RB academy for 4 years and now attends Georgetown himself. In no way did the Academy soccer influence the the schools decision. His grades, SAT and ACT were the influencers for the school. He will be a senior next year and plays as a starter on the school team. This is the reason I influenced my younger son to play top shelf club soccer. There is no need unless you son desires to play for the MLS.
Wow, post about 4:09 got removed. No obscenities or names. Guess we hit a nerve!
Most people do not realize that SDFC and SSC have a lot of fun playing each other. The competition is tough and the bus and parents on both sides all get along.
Yes the same parents are in here killing each other. So many fakes
What is so unbelievable about one of these players being able to play at the academy level. My son has done both and you might be surprised at the number of club players that could play academy. NOT that big of a difference. I am sure many of you know players on PDA that are no better and in most cases worse than MANY players you see on the club circuit. Now to say that RB and Philly are waiting for you to come is a stretch but who knows.
I believe it actually. There is a U16 boy that plays at PDA that both the RB and Union have been trying to get for years.
Really? Is he a US National Team prospect? Nothing against the player but I don't believe that.
Enough with the bull-s about this redbull kid.. Who cares...
Because of the thousand of you trying only one will make it
Predictions for upcoming weekend state cup games.
Matchfit all the way.SDFC should get by Marlton.
I believe that their are good players in both Academy and Club, no one is disputing that, but to say that RB and Philly want your kid and you don't want to go that is a little too much.
Why would "education is our priority" be a reason not to play academy? You can be a great student and a great player at the same time. Most academy players end up playing college soccer and it could help you get into a great college.And if you play for RB or Union, everything is free, even uniforms and travel expenses.
A lot of club players play in college too. Don't have to be in academy to have soccer help you to get into a school. What if you don't live that close to the academy? You ready to take an hour plus drive each way 4 nights a week for practice? There are different ways to go about playing college soccer. Good grades are a great start.
Yea who cares about that kid. The important thing is seeing last years state champs not make the finals this year. Haha
Perfectly said 1:34.
1:52, why? What are you trying to prove? Thank god the 2014 State Champions didnt win this year! For that matter I am so happy that the 2011 State champs didnt make it far. Do you realize how stupid you sound? Stronghold won, but what will others be saying in a week, I am so happy that Stronghold didnt win another state cup?
1:54 is just a jealous bitter person. Seems he/she does not know how hard it is to win a state cup. You need a good team, good schedule, good breaks and all has to go just right. 1:54 there are some teams that have won multiple state cups and that is even a greater achievement. Congrats to all the past winners, SSC and the 4 teams competing this weekend.
The other championship will belong to SDFC. No one left has a chance. Sorry in advance.
1:52 I am in no means a fan of Strong Hold but have a dislike for the Marlboro managements tactics and arrogance.
You mean keep 8 kids in the box and kick the ball down the field in hopes that a defender will fall down and one of the forwards can score? That tactic? Although they are not the only team to employ that tactic.
You guys are all idiots. None of the top teams play like that. They all move the ball and play the game the way it is supposed to be played. Some players hold the ball too much but every team has them.
Match fit, sdfc and Marlton are all teams that could win. If you think sdfc is a lock to win why even play?? Sick of cocky parents just let the boys play.
Look at SDFC's record, win percentage and national ranking. Short of the whole team getting the flue or something it's obvious SDFC is going to easily win this.
Which is what SDFC thought last year too. That worked out well for them as they didn't even make the finals. Is SDFC a good team, yes. Just know there are 6 top teams that can win any day. MarltonSDFCMFSacMarlboroSta
8:11 is a fire starter. This is not coming from a SDFC parent like he/she would like you all to believe. This is more than likely a parent from a team that will not be playing this weekend. No need for anyone to get excited. A reaction is exactly what this person is looking for. Good luck to MF, BOCA, SDFC & Marlton this weekend. All are quality teams and the games will be competitive.
Ummm BOCA does not belong. They know it
Matchfit where have you gone? Out to hide since your lost to Marlton..we miss all your taunting...
Grow up kiddies. You will make excellent adults someday.
Yes, poke the beast. You are wise.
A lot of people are rooting for you BOCA!! Congrats on getting this far!
8:11SDFC's win record is 52%. What's great about that? You think they're better than they are. They're not even ranked #1 in NJ anymore. A good team but that's all.
Rankings Rankings Rankings. Those that make their decisions on them 100% are missing the boat. Is SDFC the best team in NJ? On any given day they are. On any given day they can lose too, just like any other top team.To the BOCA poster, they got this far by beating bad to mid level teams. Yes I know you have to beat who you play but lets be honest, they have NO chance.
8:48 I disagree with you here. SDFC is very arrogant and always posting their success and dominance. Nice try
So far Matchfit, Stronghold, SDFC, Marlboro have all been called arrogant. If STA or Marlton is to win a state championship my guess is they too will be called arrogant. Soooooo, I suppose all top teams are arrogant in your book? Personally, I enjoy watching all of these teams play, I might even throw Holmdel in there because they play well but lack the big guns. You want to watch a team that cant play soccer at all, go watch a Howell or Flemington game then you will know .
Howell gets a bad rep but they hang with the big dogs. Good hard working team.
Top two teams in the tri state area are Penn Fusion Elite and MF. I am parent not associated with either.
11:49When 75% of the posts on this blogare from teams boasting about how great they are, I call that arrogance. Match fit, SSC and SDFC. I don't think the rest of us want to hear how wonderful you are.
1:01 I disagree to a point. Half the posts are bragging while the other half are posers trying to make them look bad. The question is why is someone trying to make them look bad? I dont see anyone trying to make MT Olive look bad, because no one is jealous of them. Yes, people are jealous and if given the chance they would play on one of the power 6 teams. The top teams know this because they field the phone calls and emails weekly from players that want to see if they have an opening for them. Playing on these teams allows for additional exposure that you just will not get at NJ Force for example. They are a decent team but they play in the 4th and 5th flights of tournaments. Just realize that there are some stupid parents on each team but jealousy rules the roost.
MF still has to prove itself. This MF team was not one of the top teams in the Academy league last year. This is a new MF team, a combination of 2 former MF teams. Time will tell of your opinion holds true. Penn Fusion is a better candidate for Elite team status. Consistently performs and can compete at the regional and National level.
You have already proven my point. Once you put any team in the same category as Penn Fusion, conversation over. I dont see you comparing Bridgewater to Penn Fusion.
MF is an excellent team. My sons team played them both Penn Fusion and MF. No difference in talent. Both full of very technical players. Winning is really not everything, consistent performance is. A team can lose by playing well too.
Welcome back Matcfit...
1:15 you make it sound like the power 6 are all their is. Everyone is wants to play over there, please. Don't forget their is still academy out there, very few but they are still there.
Matcfit we knew you could not stay away..
Matchfit took their tail out from their behind, Seems they already forgot their loss to Marlton..
Funny how it used to be SSC and SDFC fighting over who's the greatest team ever, Now it's the "power" teams. Anyone can win. Life or death. These are youth teams. Why are you parents so involved?
The daily or is it hourly MF report is back!
Hey Mr. Administrator, some knucklehead used a name again. I'm betting you don't have the nerve to shut down this website!!
What are you talking about?
You probably used your own name whoever you are.
Power 6? Interesting label but if you really look at the landscape it does kind of work. There is drop off after the top 6 teams and they have shown the ability to beat one another.
Good luck to Cape Express this weekend. Bring the "ship" home.
Get real 11:12If that was true, there would be a ridiculously lop sided score every time one of the "power" teams played any other team. Just let the kids play. We're all really tired of hearing from bragging parents who's claim to fame is driving kids around and writing checks
I dont see that as someone bragging but rather someone agreeing with a prior post.
regarding the lopsided scoreline. You know that soccer and hockey are different then all other sports. You can dominate a game and lose in hockey or soccer. That doesnt happen in football or baseball. Dont look at the score, that is not always a good indicator.
7-0. Point proven. Could have been 12
SDFC, hello. Are you there?
That can't be from MF.
Hard fought game between SDFC and Marlton. Could have gone either way.
But it didn't. SDFC talks the talk and balks the walk
Marlton wins against SDFC in OT. Congrats Marlton. Two finals. Not bad.
Not bad at all!!! Now win one
MF is great in revenge games. Maybe next year Marlton
Actually Marlton won against SDFC in PK's not OT. Good game with lots of talent and heart on both sides of the ball. Funny if people were to go back and read some of the older comments...beating STA, Marlboro, Matchfit, final against Stronghold, and now SDFC in the last few weeks. Like I said a few weeks ago very proud of these boys and I got crucified on here for saying that. Great young men and a first class coach. Happy for all of them. Once again I'm sure someone will find something negative about this post, but oh well. Good luck to all the boys on both sides tomorrow. Bs hound be fun to watch.
LMAO that SDFC lost today. Looks like the self proclaimed U16b go down two years in a row. Gteat job Marlton. Haha SDFC lost to a town team SMH.
Sorry self proclaimed U16b kings. Haha I'm laughing again!!! Sorry for the typo.
Marlton has players from 6 high schools and are professionally coached. How are they a town team?
I'm not a big Marlton fan but hope they win tomorrow. They have had a great run and beating MF tomorrow will be the icing on the cake this season.
How would you know how many HS are repped on Marlton. Unless u r from Marlton. Like people have been saying the top 6 teams can beat each other on any day, add in a team like BOCA and you get a 7-0 score.
6:20 and 6:22 --- will your team be in Tulsa this summer? Not. Keep LYAO
7:20. You have proven over and over that you can't even make it out of NJ. Win states and then you will be taken seriously. You know you choked again. Better team but choked
6:54 never said I was not from Marlton. Silly.
"How are they" implies not from
Who cares about tulsa? The EDP national league is just a money trap and waste of money.
Somehow the red bearded sdfc coach keeps feeding the parents the cool aid..but he can't coach the team to a state cup.championship or he does not have winners on the team. Keep drinking the cool SDFC.
He is a great coach. He cares about them all and doesn't act like an ass on the sideline. See ssc. You would be lucky to have such a coach
Keep drinking the cool Aid SDFC
The read bearded coach has always been a ass to us at Marlboro as well as everyone else don't act like he's all mighty. He's a joke and had no college placement success
I agree he has the worst rep in NJ for a bad tempered coach at U16b.
.....It was sad to see how a ball possessing team, Rangers, completely become a desperate long pass high school style team. Congrats to Marlton for hanging on and going to PK, they new they had the advantage.
When teams panic, they always resort to the long ball. All the training is forgotten.
Congrats Marlton! Now it's time to put MF down and take the title. Good luck
No shot 10:03. MF will win but Marlton has proven to be a great team.
What was the score yesterday with MF?
Matchfit vs Marlton 0-0 at half...
New coach of the year award goes to SJEB. Yesterday he grabbed his genitals to the refs and parents and said suck it. He should be banned from soccer.
11:19 coach was wrong in doing what he did, but you know what was happening, right? Barons played the Falcons yesterday folks!
What does that matter. What caused him to do that
So Why is that a reason to behave like that?
The opponents were the NJ Cup winners, the Falcons. Their coach made sure the SJEB boys knew that, they have a reputation don't they?
The SJEB should have shown more self control. The Ref could have red carded him for that.
10:21 -- it's Kool Aid you moron. You posted that twice idiot, so it wasn't a typo.
MF 1-0 in a very well played game.
congrats to both teams
Gotta finish Marlton. You will next year
Much credit to Marlton. They played 80+ minutes of regulation soccer and then two 15 minute overtime periods on Saturday in hot and humid conditions. And no -- I have no Marlton affiliation.
And of course credit to MF for the win
Any predictions for Delco this upcoming weekend? Does Matchfit have a slight edge after winning this weekend?
Winning this weekend means nothing at Delco. They will win their flight.
Thanks. Marlton should be very proud. Two weekends in a row of very tough soccer. Those kids have a TON of heart. We'll see about Delco. Looking forward to some good soccer.
After the results this past two Weeks.Top Five1. SSC2. Matchfit 3. Marlton4. SDFC5. Marlboro
Match fit has played SSC twice, and beaten them by a combined score of 7-1. How would they be ranked ahead?
Because a SSC Parent did the rankings.
I think it is time you start putting SJEB into the equation. Tied SSC and outplayed them. Beat Marlboro, and based on that game I dont know how Marlboro defensively stops anyone. We are not a high power scoring team and their defense was real poor. There are more teams to worry about at this age.
SJEB is not even in top 10, they can't beat a town team in cup tournament
At this age injuries are a factor, maybe SJEB were having some. Marlton had to go to PK 's to beat a township team. Even decent teams have very off days.
SJEB is clearly a top 10 team. Ask their opponents.
SSC isn't better than MF and Marlton
