Don't be surprised if the first 8 to pay the entry fee get byes.
Maybe because they didn't participate last year? Not saying that's the case, but some states assign the top seeds to the top finishers the previous year.https://home.gotsoccer.com/rankings/event.aspx?EventID=44066&GroupID=420032
"Maybe because they didn't participate last year?"An interesting thought. But it doesn't explain how NJ Force (who participated last year) would be given such a nasty draw (Gottschee and then MF Black if they win the first round game) while Arsenal Maximus (who didn't participate last year) would get an easy trip to the quarters.I hope it's just random but I doubt that. So I'm left thinking NJYS either has chips on their shoulders for certain clubs, based this on who paid first or are just plain clueless. And any one of these three would be disappointing.
TSF won 1-0, off of a howler. Right back passed a bouncing ball to the keeper, going under his foot giving TSF the win.
Against whom did they play?
I will say that the goal that gave TSF the win was a botched back pass that the goalie messed up. CSA Newark are a good team who had a mix of academy players and St. Benedicts players who are talented. TSF had to show defensive resilience as they were putting 10 men up. I do think TSF has a shot at winning the State Cup however they will have challenges in their way . They did beat MF Black 3-0 last time they played and beat Parsipanny 1-0 so they have a good chance. This years State Cup ending should be very entertaining
"This years State Cup ending should be very entertaining"Just for the sake of clarity, the event you are discussing is the "NJ Cup" and not the "State Cup."The NJ Cup is a US Club Soccer event that is now playing the 2nd round. The NJYS State Cup has yet to begin.And while some of us were complaining that the "lower left" bracket in the NJ Cup was weak, the brackets in the upcoming State Cup are just plain silly. So for this reason alone, I would consider the NJ Cup to be a more interesting event.One other differentiating factor of note is that Rooney did not enter the NJ Cup while Parsippany is not in the State Cup. Most other teams of note are playing in both tournaments.And all of this is somewhat pointless as posters here will continue to refer to both tournaments as the "State Cup anyway."
But I should add that, by the time both of these tournaments whittle the field down to the semifinalists, both will have 4 very good teams playing.
But then again, maybe not as I'm not sold on likely semifinalists Mainland (NJ Cup) or Logan (State Cup) as "very good" teams.I suppose there's room for debate about these two.
"Most other teams of note are playing in both tournaments."Not all of them. Mainland won last year's State Cup but I don't see them on the list of teams this year.
Going back to the posts here a while back about Gottschee playing a "qualifying" game for the State Cup, I believe you must have played at least 3 NJ teams over some recent time range to qualify. So that might explain why Parsippany is not in this one as they play in that NY league.Not sure why Rooney passes on the NJ Cup but they didn't play in it last year either.Odd that Mainland isn't in this year's State Cup to defend their championship.But for the most part, the good teams in the state play both.And for whatever it's worth, GS recognizes the State Cup winner as the State Champ.
Just got off the phone with the State, they confirmed that they have it in for Gostchsee and NJ Force. They just say it's a randowm draw but they spent extra time this year, putting those teams in a bad draw. They asked that I kept it to myself.
Kudoos to the State and Buddy Hart for scheduling all the state cup games in Pittsgove/Burlington. It centrally located for everyone in the state correct? No! Th only thing dumber than that is the stting up the draw and how it reads from round to round.
"...They asked that I kept it to myself."GREAT JOB! (LOL!)
Predictions on Staten Island Gunners vs The Parsippany White team in Edp?Should be easy match for Staten Island.
Actually parsippany white competed with tsf and I would probably rank them 4 or 5 In the state over parsippany blue.
Although the goal that gave TSF the win was very lucky, it appeared to me that they were the better team with more opportunities throughout the game. The TSF keeper did have to make one spectacular save but TSF hit the post and missed a penalty. On another note, the Parsipanny blue team is leaps and bounds better than their B team so I wouldn't be too surprised to see a Parsipanny Blue vs. TSF semifinal in the NJ cup.
Parsippany white 5- 1 Statan island. Nobody listened. They said we couldn't win. Now they know. Shame shame shame
Not to belittle the importance of Parsippany White and the Staten Island Gunners 2nd Division EDP match...Any word on the 2 NJ Cup quarterfinal games today?MF Blue vs NJ Force?Mainland vs Princeton Spurs?Inquiring minds want to know!
parsippany white better than blue team? not sure about that. yes they killed staten island gunners but are staten island gunners a team to use in any sort of comparison. im sure any of the top teams in nj could beat them by 3-5 goals
Woah, I'm not related with any Parsippany club, but 3-5 goals is a huge overstatement. TSF only beat them by 1. Parsippany would lose, but by 1-2, on a really, really bad day maybe 3.
TSF is so overconfident in their abilities. They beat Cedar Stars by playing very defensively and imo not the better team.
I didn't watch the match, but playing defensively is not a bad thing. If you think you're a better team playing on the counter-attack, play that way. I will say that winning is not something to be underestimated, as anyone can beat anyone in this age group. We say that last night with NJ Force and Princeton Tottenham.
Surprised to see no one has made mention of the weekend results from the NJ Cup.No "Black and Blue" final this year as NJ Force has knocked MF Blue out.And Mainland has bowed out as well having lost to Princeton Spurs.April 5, 2016 at 11:48 PM"And I think we may see some upsets on the left side. I actually think NJ Force has a shot to get to the semifinals from the upper left and maybe even one of the Princeton teams from the lower left."Pardon me while I take a bow!
If DOL gets to the final I will lose it, and there's a very real chance of that happening
No worries. No one will remember which team got shellacked in the final.
The schedule for the remaining 4 NJ Cup 2nd round games:EB vs. Elizabeth - 4/14 (8:00, Heavenly Farms Complex) Parsippany Blue vs. Mt. Olive - 4/15 (8:00, Central Park, Morris County) SJEB vs. Princeton NPL - 4/16 (4:00, Hammonton) MF Black vs. Voorhees - 4/18 (8:00, Mercer County Com. Col)EB, Parsippany and MF Black all seem likely to advance to me. Who knows about SJEB and Princeton?
"No worries. No one will remember which team got shellacked in the final"I remember that EB got shellacked in last year's final. Although I didn't see the game and still wonder how that could have happened (even with a red card).
Gottschee has weird issues. In their state cup game they went with 2 subs one of which was injured. They were short 2 starters including their striker and couldn't score. They seem like a part-time club at times and it leads to inconsistency.
the comment about "any of the top teams in nj could beat them by 3-5 goals" was referring to staten island gunners, not parsippany white who beat them 5-1, which was mentioned after someone stated "Should be easy match for Staten Island" and "I would probably rank them 4 or 5 In the state over parsippany blue." parsippany white is not a top team in the state, but would not get hammered by any of them, as seen in the tsf game
Well, I would have though the same but it seems like Parsippany White is one of the only teams to beat Staten Island by a large margin. Staten Island beat Princeton Tottenham and DOL, tied New York SC and Brentwood, and lost to TSF, NJ Force, SDFC, and Copa all by one goal. So that statement of "any of the really good teams in NJ could beat them by 3-5 goals" is not right. Staten Island's high press is difficult to deal with for many teams.
Gottschee beat DOL in a game that wasn't as close as 2-0 makes it seem.
SI Gunners started the match against Parsippany White with just 9 and only added a 10th about midway through the 1st half.Regardless, SI Gunners were up 1-0 at the half! However, they lost by a big score.Credit to SI Gunners for showing up ready to play, regardless of how many you had.Credit to Parsippany White for "righting the ship" in the second half and getting the kind of result (5 - 1) expected!
The scrimmage that the TSF person said a while back was a lie because gottschee has not played any scrims. I'm a parent of the Roma team and I can promise you we haven't. If they say they did play gottschee we'll show me a video or pictures because we always record our games.
I was at the gottschee v. DOL game. It wasn't that much of a close game, gottschee missed so many shots including one where the number 10 chipped the keeper but hit the crossbar and went out. Also a lot of their shots just went near the side bars. But the one thing I did question was the disallowed goal that the ref called in the first half. He said it was an offside when the the player behind the defense let the ball go through so that the teammate on side could score. Although I did say before that it wasn't that much of a close game it was difficult for gottschee to get through the defense in the first half. The first half was probably the closes part of the game. Second half was the part where I say it wasn't a close game because DOL couldn't pass the half unless by blasting the ball to gottschee's side so that the keeper could get the ball.
lol we from TSF never said that either we obviously never scrimmaged u guys
Look at the April 4th comment (7:37pm) it says that TSF scrim gottschee beating them 3-2.
Well, somebody is lying in here!!!
grrhrh those little boys are up to mischief again! is okay - the weekend is coming up. you can spend your energy running around after the ball soon. lol
I'll say. The actual score of that scrimmage was 9-8.
I heard 8-0 TSF from a reliable source, so I don't know what everyone is talking about
Seriously?That's hard to believe.
But if it is true, then TSF has just punched their ticket to the semis.
Tsf woudlve won anyway because were the best team in the state
East Brunswick not same team from last year or year before. Lost many players to academies and two best players to Cedar Stars. Mostly players from old Monroe team now.
TSF has a high opinion of themselves but time will tell.
TSF has been very fortunate with their two NJ Cup wins. But you shouldn't blame them for that. There's nothing wrong with good fortune and just about every team that wins gets some along the way.And if EB is as diluted as claimed, the top right of this bracket turned out to be disappointing as well.Anyway, no way TSF can win this one. Good fortune is often fleeting!
These comments about TSF saying there the best team in the state aren't from TSF players or anyone affiliated with us like that's the problem with an anonymous blog people pretend to be who there not
the person that said "grrhrh those little boys are up to mischief again! " is probably the same person that said "Kids....go do your homework or something constructive with your time."... "lol"
I see Parsippany took care of Mt. Olive last night as expected.So unless Voorhees can pull an "Elizabeth" on MF Black, the Parsippany/MF Black semifinal should be the best one the NJ Cup has to offer this year.
You mean the Parsippany/ MF quarterfinal
you mean the parsippany/voorhees quarterfinal
"You mean the Parsippany/ MF quarterfinal"I stand corrected.
Looks like Gottschee vs MF Black tomorrow is the game to watch in the nj state cup
I hope that's true because I was at their game today and New Jersey force took out 3 of gottschee starting players. The ref did a poor job once the first kid got injured and thus two more kids did from gottschee. I don't expect gottschee to do well knowing that they lost a midfielder, main forward, and their key center back.
State Cup SJEB 4-0 over Princeton
The concerns about EB look to be legit as they were knocked out of that other State Cup today by STA.And newcomers MF Blue and SDFC are both gone here too after falling to Mainland and Logan.But I keep harping on the draw here as Monroe (who I don't recall winning a game since U12) have made the quarterfinals and await the winner of the MF Black/Gottschee matchup. And one of STA NPL, STA Athletico or Arsenal Maximus will make the semis.All we can hope for now is a decent final in this one. What a mess!
Who cares about the draw. The best should make it through anyway whether they play each other in an early round or beat the weaker fodder first. It will be the same usual teams in the end and probably the same complaints about refs, red cards, parents, field conditions. Are you expecting anything different? And yes, agree, EB on the decline, MF Blue not there just yet and good to see the newcomers SDFC and Monroe.
"Who cares about the draw(?)"Did you miss this part?"And one of STA NPL, STA Athletico or Arsenal Maximus will make the semis."When the brackets are set up so that stronger teams knock each other out in the first round while less accomplished teams need only to beat each other to advance to the semifinals, you have a poorly organized event. The idea is to give the stronger teams an opportunity to compete when the championship is in sight. Not when they still have to win 3 or 4 more games to get there.So this one won't have "the same usual teams" in the end as a number of them are already gone and at least one team that no one could have possibly expected will get, at most, just one game from the final.And the NJ Cup isn't that much better as the "lower left" bracket didn't include enough of the strongest teams. Sorry, but neither SJEB or Princeton Spurs have ever shown me anything that looks like what I'd expect from a State semifinalist.The organizers made a mess of both of these, although the NJYS debacle is the worse of the two.
So what if stronger teams play in a first round or semis? The cream will rise to the top. Doesnt matter if they play each other early or late. Eventually they will have to play one another. Unless the it's an ego thing or a point thing with you. Which it sounds like. Some may like the cinderella STA or Arsenal story. Sounds like sour grapes. Were you eliminated today? If so, sorry. If not, you should enjoy the weaker teams still being around so you can beat on them next week.
It's not a "Cinderella story." It's poor organization.Can't imagine how you are missing the obvious here. The NJYS State Cup quarter finals will include only 8 of the 25 teams that entered the competition. Yet this year, 3 of them will be teams that no one would have dreamed were good enough to accomplish this. And it's not because Daveys knocked of Goliaths. It's because Daveys knocked off other Davey's while the Goliaths took care of each other.So this is really 3 "Cinderella stories" if you wish. And that's way too many Cinderellas for the competition to have much validity. Sorry, but there just aren't that many silver slippers to go around.
Someone is taking U16 Youth Soccer waaaaay too seriously. Don't worry, you'll get your points. There can only be one winner anyway. Enjoy it for the couple of years you have left! In 5 years all your points will have vanished and this will be a fond memory.
State Cup Qtr final SJEB 2-0 over Princeton
who won? matchfit or sdfc?
PDA takes it over Mainland in pk's
mainland gave pda trouble again?
Heard pda's coach decided to try new player positions in this game and it backfired in the first half.
Any predictions for Parsipanny vs MF Black in the NJ cup qf? Winner to take on TSF in semis.
I think MF Black will win over Parsipanny.
Predictions- PDA over STA and Match Fit over Logan. Anyone think differently.Semi-Finals A PDA ROONEY STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 99 Semi-Finals B LOGAN SC BLACKJACKS MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC 99/00 BLACK
"I think MF Black will win over Parsipanny."I think you're probably right. But I won't be shocked if Parsippany gets through.Either one of them will beat TSF.
"Predictions- PDA over STA and Match Fit over Logan."Agreed. And then Rooney over MF Black in the final.
MF Black are in both state cups? Talk about a need for points. I'll never understand why there isn't one concrete state cup but I don't see MF winning either one. Lose to PDA Rooney in final of NJYS state cup and lose to TSF in NJ Cup (if they get past Parsipanny which is no easy task).
There was just one state cup until about 8 years ago when good old American competition (on the business side) kicked in. The USYS (ie: NJYS here in NJ) State Cup was the clear State Championship until this point.But then along came US Club Soccer to compete with them. And over the ensuing years, the automation they offer (along with better customer service in general) created competition. Simple fact is that US Club became significantly easier to deal with than their more traditional competitor.So now we have two State Championships with the US Club version called the NJ Cup (as opposed to the more traditional State Cup}. and some teams qualify for entry in only one of these (although most can play in both).In the end, it probably all works out okay...unless Rooney (who doesn't play the NJ Cup) and TSF or Parsippany (who don't play the State Cup) are the winners, Because if this happens then we don't know who the real champ is.
any other good nj cup fixtures besides parsippany match fit? that should be an interesting match and i wouldnt be surprised to see extra time or a single goal win for either side. i say 1-1 and maybe parsippany slips through but MF are looking like favorites
NJ Cup Qtr Den of Lions vs NJ Force, not sure about this one, since DOL got knocked out of State Cup by Logan. Winner plays SJEB in semi-final.
Logan Blackjacks win the NJYS State Cup, no questions asked
"Logan Blackjacks win the NJYS State Cup, no questions asked"Well of course! Considering the highest ranked flight the Logan Blackjacks have ever won was a four team flight at the NYC Cup, who else could possibly win the State Cup?Let me put it this way...if Logan wins the State Cup, I'm going to have to move the family to another State to avoid the embarrassment.
What are you trying to say about Logan? what is everyones thoughts on logan
"Logan Blackjacks win the NJYS State Cup, no questions asked" Why no questions allowed, kind of arrogant statement. So I guess we should just move and not discuss.
I wanna talk about Logan
Logan is trash. no questions asked
You people know nothing about Logan. Logan is underestimated. They have it all. They will prove it to you all. Just watch
Logan parent- What does having it all mean.
All the talent that they need
Looking at Logan's recent history, I see they played in the top flights at 2 weekend events last month. One was the EDP Easter Showcase and the other was APC Premier.In these two events, Logan won 0, drew 0 and lost 6 times. They scored 3 goals in these matches while conceding 15.So clearly, this is a powerhouse of a team that is not only certain to win the NJYS State Cup, but should heavy favorites to win the National Championship.Nothing like "having it all."
yeah alright bud
Calm down. Looking at Logan's recent history, they are more than qualified to win the NJYS State Cup. It was you that put "national championship" in the same sentence. Sheesh. Like any NJ team is capable of that.
"Calm down. Looking at Logan's recent history..."I guess the concept of sarcasm is one you're not familiar with.
Logan Blackjack Parent:I appreciate your enthusiasm and I am sure that there is talent on your squad like all teams. In all reality, any team can beat the other on any given day in every sport including club soccer. No argument there. These boys are playing their hearts out in every game and giving it 110% in every game. Unfortunately, too many parents take this way too seriousl too the point where there is anymosity & insults. If your boys knew how ridiculous your posts were, they would be mortified. Just enjoy!
I agree with the above post
Logan is as much as a joke as Mainland Parsippany TSF Matchfit PDA EB And maybe Gotschee are levels above the rest of the teams facts are facts
EB has lost too many players to pro clubs and academies. Unless they do some heavy recruiting, they will continue to fade away. However, kudos to them for creating a program that has showcased players and allowed them to move onto better development opportunities. At the end of the day, isn't this what we want for all our kids?
Anyone know the result of den of lions and nj force Qtr final nj cup game today
Dol beats nj force in penalties
Tonight MF plays Parsippany and winner gets TSF in Semi in NJ CupDOL will play SJEB in other semiPredictionsSJEB over DOL and MF over TSFWhat do people think
As for Matchfit vs TSF...a little premature. I am not a Parsippany parent but tonight can go either way. A lot of it depends on who shows up and how well they match up. As for SJEB vs DOL, same thing applies.
MF over Parsipanny in PKsMF played 75% of the game with 10 men.
Matchfit beats Parsippany in pks. Outstanding effort by Matchfit playing with 10 men but Parsippany struggled with there pressure. Parsippany dominated the whole game and had almost all possession. One mistake cost them otherwise they had it in the books with full possession and control of the game. Anything could happen in pks and we got the result. Classy match between them both but Parsippany dominated and I believe they were clearly the better side in this match.Looking like Matchfit will win this state cup.
Parsippany dominated because they had an extra man for 60 minutes. For the first 20 minutes it was an agressive and even match.It's a shame Parsippany did not take advantage of the extra man and the possession, because they could have won this. They actually sat back and allowed MF to pressure them instead of the other way around.Either way, a very entertaining match to watch.
I had Parsippany winning this one. Matchfit definitely showed me something and this applies to most teams..to win being down a man for 60 minutes to a very good team, they demonstrated that heart wins games. It would have been the same if Parsippany was down one as well. Matchfit has a very tough game ahead. TSF beat them in their last meeting. It should be a very good game. Good luck to both teams.
Spf United boys u17...don't you dare sleep
11:00 AMThank you for the warning but you may want to post this on the u17B Blog as this is a u16B Blog.
"For the first 20 minutes it was an agressive and even match."Not so sure I can agree with this. I thought Parsippany had the better of this one from the kickoff. And while the advantage they had in possession and passing was surely enhanced by the sending off, I's say they were enjoying much the better of it even before the red card.But when you score only one goal, conceding an equalizer negates much of your good work and leaves you in the crap shoot that is PKs.Congrats to MF Black on a gutty win!Good game to watch. Would have made for a worthy final.
one mistake cost parsippany... end of story. They dominated MF with 11 and 10 players but massive credit to match fit boys for capitalizing on their one out of two opportunities in the match. that is what makes it such an amazing game. penalties will always be an unfair decider but that's the game. unlucky for parsippany (who I think otherwise would have won the cup) with going out early and we will now most likely see MF go on to win the rest. what are others' takes on this
I think you are downplaying MF's play. Dominated is a misrepresentation of the game.Parsnippany played well, but MF had more than two opportunities. The Parsippany goalie alone saved 3 or 4 other opportunities, including a header that was surely going in the back of the net.I'm not so sure they would have won the cup either.
MF clearly sat back after going down a man. Parsippany looked content to try and nurse the one goal lead. They were content to play with the ball in the back and for much of the game MF let them. Then with about 15mins left MF came out and pressured the ball and turnovers started happening. Parsippany clearly took their foot off the gas with a 1 goal lead. Turned out to be a very poor decision. Tactically MF outplayed them.
7:27am Poster hit it right on the head.Parsippany had the advantage and talent to beat MF, but they did stop pressuring for some reason.
Tommorow night, Loagn plays Matchfit Blue in the quaterfinals of the EDP Open Cup. Predictions?
Parsippany was out coached and Matchfit had more heart.Parsippany also showed how deceiving Gotsoccer points are. They are clearly a top team in the state.
"Parsippany was out coached..."Just curious if this was your general observation or if there were specific circumstances that caused you to come to this conclusion?
See the post at 7:27am. Those are specific circumstances.

Interesting how Parsippany, Penn Fusion and NYSC all sent their B teams to Delco. Surprisingly, both Penn Fusion B and NYSC B were put in the second flight at Delco, despite not havig neither the ranking or the results to support this. Did Delco think they were getting the first teams?Meanwhile, Parsippany B were flighted below both Stallions teams in the 5th bracket despite both stallions teams being very poor this spring. Unfortunate for those players.The biggest point about both Potomac and Delco is that the best teams seem to be split between the two, though Potomac's lower flights appear to be much stronger. It will be interesting to see how it all pans out.
Matchfit Blue 2 Logan 0 in EDP open cup last night
Logan had an off night. Matchfit Blue was definitely the better team and deserved the win. Logan plays MF Black next week in NJYS State Cup Semis.Do I hear redemption?

Congrats to TSF, but who cares about the NJ Cup?
10:16You sound bitter. Did your team not make it this far.
From one who been less than excited about TSF of late, I must congratulate then on their win over MF Black. That's 3 in a row against them, right?Also, and with all due respect to the Parsippany supporters, the TSF/MF match was really the best game of the tournament...so far anyway! The Parsippany/MF game should have been a semifinal. The TSF/MF game was the real final!
Well, how about give the Barons some credit for getting to the final, instead of saying the TSF vs MF game was the real final.
who won? TSF or SJEB?
SJEB in penalties
There you go, whoever said TSF vs MF should have been the final. Give teams credit where credit is due, and acknowledge that literally anyone can beat anyone in this age group. Let's stop being elitist and judging teams on their performance instead of predisposed, biased opinions.
The matchfit TSF game was 10x better
Sounds like you're being a sore loser.
Damn bunch of sore losers everywhere. Every time you don't win its the refs fault and the opposing team parked the bus, even though parking the bus is a completely respectable tactic that professional teams use and succeed with.
Unfortunately, there were a few games that have been decided by poor refs.Congrats to SJEB but this is as big of a fluke as Mainland winning the State Cup last Spring over PDA. I hate to agree but SJEB representing the state of New Jersey is somewhat of a farce. Please do not make us look bad!Good luck!
I watched the second half of the SJEB v DOL game. Ref was bad. DOL doing the usual flopping, rolling around on the ground, grabbing and playing chippy. SJEB just played physical and DOL didn't like it. Ref called a PK late in the game and Barons converted. Call it karma. DOL has won more games from diving in the box then 10 teams combined. Afterwords, players and coaching MF'ing the ref. Classy!!!
It's embarrassing for any players like us who play on a good team in the state
Congrats to SJEB, good for you!!
College coaches will no longer be spectators at NJ matches. What s shame!
seems like parsippany was the only team that couldn't park the bus successfully ! congrats to SJEB... I'm sure the rest of the teams in NJ won't be too thrilled with them going to nationals though in their place
It has very little to do with going to Nationals in their place..SJEB is just nowhere near a top team in the state and is in no way indicative of the talent that is in NJ. We did not play in the NJ Cup. TSF would have at least made NJ look respectable.
In terms of playing what we all call "the beautiful game" there is no team in NJ that plays more beautifully than Parsippany. In the few games I've seen them play, their possession and understanding of the game is incredibly fluid and a very high level. Based solely on playing style, they are the best team in the state.With that said, as the NJ Cup shows, playing "the beautiful game" and out passing the opposition does not necessarily produce results. If that were the case, Barcelona and Bayern would never lose. There is a certain sort of beauty in a team tactically getting results by playing to their strengths. Would everyone rather watch a Barcelona v Bayern game than an Aston Villa victory over Arsenal? Yes. But you still have to accept and respect the lesser quality team getting a victory. So stop being upset about SJEB winning NJ Cup and respect that victory.
So there's a challenge to all NJ teams!Play beautiful like Parsipanny and try to understand the game better than them.
Hey buddy your comparisons are dumb and biase comparing u16 youth teams to Barcelona is dumb but u You say parsippany is the best team in the state and they lost to matchfit and then say respect SJEB win.If you were at the game I would like the hear your input but u weren't but when my team plays parsippany and wins I'll be sure to tell you cause now there the best team in the state
Congratulations and respect to SJEB for winning. Did anyone notice they did not give up a goal the entire NJ Cup run. The won 2-0, 2-0, 1-0 and 0-0 in final. They earned the Cup. Upsets in sports happen, just look at Villanova beating North Carolina and who would have ever thought Leister City would win the EPL. The opponents that lost to them showed respect and congratulations. Same here for SJEB.
Add 4-0 to the wins SJEB had in the NJ Cup run. No allowing a goal in five games is impressive no matter who you play.
Don't forget about the NJYS State Cup this weekend as well
Don't pat yourselves in the back too much.They stacked the brackets heavily with the top teams on the right side and had the best teams eliminate themselves.Had the top teams been evenly distributed, SJEB would have been eliminated weeks ago.Let's see how they perform from this point forward to see if it was just a fluke like DOL and Mainland.
What is everyone's thoughts on the differnce between the US Club State Cup, and the NJYS State Cup? Which one determines the real State Champion?
You can only play who they put in front of you. Anyone can speculate on what if's. Fact are facts, they did well and deserve congratulations.
Thoughts on this upcoming weekends state cup matchups?
May 10 @10:07Get real coach. You're coaching youth teams in club soccer. Stop comparing youth teams to professional teams. Typical TSF attitude.
SJEB is best team in region... without a doubt best team in Marlton, NJ
Just wondering what team are you affiliated with
I will go with PDA over STA and Matchfit over Logan. PDA then beats Matchfit for the Cup.
Parents should be the first to behave on the sidelines and refs need to know how to handle them.
12:02"SJEB is best team in region"Which part of the world are you referring to?
SJEB won against TSF who is a great team. So SJEB did have a hard match and they proved themselves to win. Also this is because SJEB is the best.
Jared Schultes is the best looking kid on SJEB
UPDATE: Zach Garcia tore his acl and will not be playing anytime soon.
Markus Kern is the greatest player in the area
LSA is only bad because the son plays to much and the coach doesnt put in someone that knows what their doing on a soccer field. Very proud to whoevers on that team to put up with that crap well done.
Logan has one goal scorer and that is it. No one else scored and the coach plays his awful son the whole game. The bench is soft and relies too much on the starters who aren't anything special. MF black will easily cruise past them
I only wish SJEB would play out of another state to save NJ from utter embarrassment.
Logan Blackjacks has a great forward #3.MF Black should watch him play and offer him a spot on the MF roster.He does not belong on Logan Blackjacks.
When SJEB win the state cup and everyones salty because it wasnt them>>>
Utter embarrasment? You're probably terrible.
Out of all the flavors out there and you have to be salty come on
Logan is terrible
Logan gives me AIDS
Parsipanny don't deserve to be on a soccer field. If I had describe them it'd be: arrogant, bad, unprofessional, disrespectful, bad, and not a soccer team.
In response to the comment about the SJEB vs DOL game: Shame on you for making false rumors! The DOL players or the parents were never rude to the ref. There wasn't any cursing as you posted here. You are right that the ref was bad, but also DOL were not having a very good game. A very questionable penalty was given to SJEB and then about 20 minutes after that a DOL player was red carded. Although some bad calls were made, players or parents never yelled at the ref or at other parents. It's a shame an adult like yourself would like to give a team that doesn't get into arguments with other parents or players a bad rep. You can say DOL did't play well or the ref made very bad calls, but don't trash the team please. The score was 1-0.... Good luck to SJEB.
Well this blog is completely useless now other than to find out results a couple hours before they are posted. We had a good run! To finish my time on the blog I will post my NJ top 8 and whether you will agree or not I do not know because after this I am done.1. PDA Rooney2. TSF3. MF Black4. Parsipanny5. Gottschee6. East Brunswick7. Logan Blackjacks8. MF Blue
This is a player on TSF. The players want to stress that the comments regarding our acceptance in tournaments such as Surf Cup and others is not us speaking and the talk of us being "super great" and "the best team ever" and all the other cocky stuff. We have all agreed that we are only as good as our record and championships show.
Unfortunately..this will be my last post on this blog and I am sure that other parents will agree..It is very easy to distinguish an immature teenager from a father who simply visits the blog to get information about upcoming events, etc. The previous four posts are somewhat pathetic and is not what this blog is meant to be.Administrator of this blog: please do a better job removing inappropriate posts that are irrelevant and offending.
pretty sure SJEB got the penalty before the red card so firsy get your shit together and facts straight before speaking.
Whoever the idiot is talking about the DOL vs. SJEB game I'm pretty sure the DOL player was red carded for walking right up to the ref and cursing in his face. Her your facts right and get off this page you moron. The parents were out of control and if you've even been to a DOL game then you know the coach is a complete physco unless you're too stupid to know that as well
No doubt TSF deserved that game they beat SJEB before 3-0 even tho SJEB had no subs the still dominated in possession but during the final their head werent on by screaming at eachother which made them not play A1.
SJEB was missing 3 of their most important players during that game. TSF and SJEB both failed to really get a great scoring chance in the final. It was deserved of a tie.
SJEB won because they got lucky with there penalties except for that one they missed which that man has missed previous pks
It's their** by the way, are you even literate. It seems unlikely. TSF had some bad PKs. It's life buddy.
Considering TSF shanked a pk 20 yards over the bar and their second pk my mom could've kicked harder and the one the Barons missed was cause the goalie made a great save I think the term luck in inappropriate for this conversation
I really don't know why TSF has to make themselves look weak after playing a good, hard game against SJEB. It was a tough game throughout, but SJEB deserved it at the end. TSF should take it like men, learn from it, and not make fools of themselves by commenting childish things.
We do it to bother that dads on this site that need a life
MF Black vs Logan should be a good game this weekend. They tied 3-3 in the preseason and since then I hear both teams have made significant adjustments to their game.
Logan's results in tournaments aren't the best but, they do play hard it won't be an easy win for MF Black but they will get the Win I believe. I see a PDA v MF Black final with MF Black winning.
