U15B - Are you ready for some football?

The U15 boys are now in high school and changing as quickly as the team rosters.

Many teams have new coaches, new leagues and new competition that spans several states.

High school soccer, club team, academy team.

Buckle up for an exciting ride.

Congrats to Matchfit on their first round advancement in the NJ cup.

I can promise you MatchFit, no one cares.

Marlboro no longer has a team?

Manhattan canceled.

Anyone know how to contact U15 boys from team at Marlboro that folded

Anonymous said...

Marlboro folded? How do you know that?

Anonymous said...

One of their players contacted my team about guest playing this season.

Anonymous said...

If they "folded" then he would not need to guest play. He would be able to join.

Anonymous said...

Noted. It's more of a 2-way trial to see how it goes.

Anonymous said...

Makes sense, good luck. Why does Marlboro no longer have a team, very strange.

Anonymous said...

That Marlboro team was strange. Had some really good players, some athletes, and a few that took up a roster spot. Once the roster spot players received play time the good ones left. No need to play on a team like that when there are many other options.

Anonymous said...

If clubs expect anyone to stay, they better give every player playing time. Everyone made the team, everyone is paying the same money. If they just want subs who never play, charge them less, otherwise, they're just taking advantage of paying customers and hurting kids.

Thank you recreation coordinator

A club is not getting my business if my kid sits on the bench every game but there are a surprising number of people who put up with this.

Anonymous said...

If your son is on the bench, be aware that he has hit his ceiling. Find a team a notch lower and play there.

Anonymous said...

I don't see Marlboro listed, are they completely done?

Anonymous said...

Yes Marlboro is done for sure. It was a successful run for the boys, but when 4 great players leave it is no hope. 4 went to PDA. From what I've heard, their keeper joined the U-16 team where it is a more competitive level. Those kids had potential. Outstanding midfielders, fantastic goalie, unbelievable individuals who knew how to play. So yes, from what I hear the u15 Galaxy team is done.

Anonymous said...

So then I suppose we should expect to see an improved Rooney squad this year?

Anonymous said...

4 great players? One was great, two are good and one is too slow to be good. These players and parents waited until one month before the season started to tell anyone they were leaving. What does that tell you about them? You want the backstabbers, take them. They are not on an academy team, just on a team that Marlboro beat. You want to leave, go ahead but dont screw the rest of you your team.

Anonymous said...

How don't you think that those 4 players were not good. 4 of them were maybe the best on the team. Was it because your son may not have been those best 4, or was it that you were jealous that your son isn't on the 4 that left.

Anonymous said...

Well since you asked. My son is not on the team, he left the right way prior. I didnt say they were not good, I said 3 of the 4 were not great so please dont put words in my mouth. Jealous? No. I do think you made the choice at the wrong time. Dont you care that you screwed a bunch of boys?

Anonymous said...

No response as suspected. Keep destroying teams!

Anonymous said...

I hope that all the boys from that team found another team to play on
but how could four players leaving be the end of a team?

Anonymous said...

Is it possible they had 15 players? Yes. Is it possible that when 4 players leave right before the season begins that others would feel like they have to look? Yes. You cant go into a season with 11 players and play the schedule that a team like Marlboro did and survive. Sounds like a bunch of selfish families to me.

Anonymous said...

Reality is that there were some players that received playtime because of who their parents were rather than what they could do on the field. I don't think it was worth breaking up a team for but that was the end result.

Anonymous said...

Unless you are directly involved, who really cares? Teams break up all of the time, and you move on. Stop focusing on others and just worry about your son.

Anonymous said...

Who said I wasnt directly impacted? Teams do break up but not in March you idiot. I guess you are one of the despicable parents who allowed their son to quit on his team and ran to a non academy team. No worries, he will never be cut because they will continue to cash your checks as you support the real PDA teams.

Anonymous said...

I was surprised to find out that all the club PDA teams pay for their free academy teams, I don't think that's fair but as long as parents go along with it, it will continue, Many parents think that their kid is playing academy soccer just because he's at PDA.

They are the suckers and once they realize it, it is too late.

I'm looking at the flights for the upcoming MSSL Showcase and I'd say they made a bit of a mess of this.

Lots of very good teams in this tournament. But how does SJEB make the top bracket when a team that beat them 3-0 in December (FC Montco) is places in the 2nd flight?

And how does a team like Revolution Utd., who drew with Yonkers this week, end up in the 3rd flight with the likes of the Den of Lions "B" team and the Jersey Utd. Spartans?

Makes no sense!

Anonymous said...

I was told that go strictly by got soccer rankings, which everyone knows are far from perfect. The more events you enter, the more pts. you get.

Anonymous said...

FC Montco: #104 Nationally and #4 in PAE

SJEB: #105 Nationally and #10 in NJ

So not even GotSoccer rankings can explain it.

Anonymous said...

Given the applied teams, I'd have found a way to put together a 12 team top flight that includes the 8 teams already there plus FC Montco, Revolution Utd., NJ Stallions and World Class.

Montco and Rev Utd. are very good teams and I'll be surprised if both don't win their flights. And Rev Utd. may run up some very big scores in the 3rd bracket.

Anonymous said...

With the NJ Got Soccer rankings pretty tight amongst the top 10, 6 of the top 10 teams will be playing in the top flight at Tuckahoe this Friday and Saturday. And if any one of them can manage to win this tournament, they'd be certain to pass by current #1 Match Fit Black (who are sitting this one out).

And EB, Parsippany and TSF could lose the final and still move up to #1.

But of course, out-of-staters FSA and Calverton have got to be the favorites in this one.

Anonymous said...

Some interesting results from the first day of the MSSL Showcase.

Looks like neither EB or Parsippany will be moving up to #1 as their results were not great. And even TSF (who drew with Calverton) would need to run the score up on EB tomorrow to get into the final after Calverton dusted them 4-0.

In the other bracket it looks like Gottschee need at least a draw against FSA tomorrow to make the final after wining two today. And the big loser in this group today wasn't SJEB (who gat a draw with FSA), but DoL who lost both of their games without scoring a goal.

Anonymous said...

So in other words, chances are good that Match Fit Black's #1 status will still be in tact come Easter morning with the two out-of-state teams battling it out in the final.

Anonymous said...

I was all over the top flight at MSSL with Calverton winning on PKs over FSA in the final.

And Montco managed to win the 2nd group as I thought, but not as easily as I thought they would.

But my "shoe in" pick of Rev. Utd. in the 3rd flight left me with egg on my face as the Den Of Lions "B" team beat them in the final.

Ah well. Two out of three ain't too bad.

Anonymous said...

Any predictions in EDP so far? Anyone know of any results?

Anonymous said...

The EDP "wild cards" this spring look to be the three new out-of-state teams (Patriot Red, Delaware Rush and FC Montco). But after 3 games from two of them, they've yet to record a win. Too soon to bury anyone yet (and Montco's yet to play), but it looks like the "usual suspect" Jersey teams will all be in the hunt for this championship.

With that said, Rooney is off to a good start with a pair of wins. Gottschee won their only match and MF Black haven't laced their boots up yet.

EB has a loss to PDA and Montco hasn't played yet.

It's still early, but it's not a long season. So my picks for the real competitors here are PDA, Gottschee, MF Black and Montco.

Anonymous said...

My understanding regarding PDA is that they've added some of the Marlboro players. They're playing Delaware Rush tonight and the result of this one could be telling.

Anonymous said...

PDA also added 4 or 5 players from their 'B' team Jinky.

Anonymous said...

If PDA added a number of players from both Marlboro and Jinky, then some of the ones who were there must have left, right?

Otherwise wouldn't they have a very big roster.

how's the NJ cup going?

Anonymous said...

What happen to EB? I heard they lost some players

Anonymous said...

NJ Cup?

There can always be surprises. But this one looks like it's shaping up as it looked when the draw first came out.

EB against either Parsippany or Gottschee in on semi and MF Black against either NJ Force or DoL in the other.

I think the EB/Parsippany/Gottschee trio is a toss up. But I'd expect the team that gets through this to play MF Black in the final.

Anonymous said...

Who do you think will win the NJ cup most likely?

Anonymous said...

Understanding that I think one of the semifinalists is a three-way "toss up," I can't say there's any one team I think is "most likely" to win it.

Which team do you think will win it?

Anonymous said...

I say who ever wins that trio will win the finals against MF. MF isn't as good as one of those trio teams.

Anonymous said...

Looks like MF won their EDP match against Delaware Rush today by a 2-0 score. So maybe they are still pretty good.

And maybe it will be Westfield and Rancocas Valley in the NJ Cup final!

Okay, I doubt that too.

Anonymous said...

Which team is playing the best soccer right now?

Anonymous said...

MF looks pretty good off their win against Delaware and Gottschee seems to have won 5 of their last 6 games

Anonymous said...

I am predicting a Matchfit and Parsippany final in NJ Cup. Matchfit has an easy way to finals. Parsippany needs to get by tough teams like Gottshee, it will be tough for them. Cant wait to see some results. Should Parsippany be ranked higher in Gotsoccer?
What do you think?

Anonymous said...

We all seem to think MF are a certainty to make the final. But I not so sure their path is THAT easy. My guess is that they'll make the semifinal easy enough. But couldn't either DoL or NJ Force could give them a game? Didn't DoL beat them in the State Cup a few years back? And NJ Force beat them 3-0 at YMS last fall.

Anonymous said...

EB lost about 5 or 6 to Phil Union Academy. Picked up a few top Marlboro players and a very good keeper from one of the Academys. Nice talent but it may take some time for them to gel from what a person familiar with the team told me at Tuckahoe last week.

Anonymous said...

Why do you think Parsippany? Didn't they lose to TSF which both EB and Gottschee beat? I say semifinals are gonna be Gottschee and EB like last year. But lot has changed for those two teams so this semifinal if both make it will be pretty close.

Anonymous said...

EB beat Gottschee by a score of 2-1 in last year's semifinal. So that sounds like it was pretty close to me.

And regarding results at the recent MSSL tournament, I wouldn't put too much stake in them. The wind on Saturday was about 50 MPH and none of the soccer I saw looked particularly good as a result.

Anonymous said...

True but Parsippany played on Friday against TSF without the wind.

Anonymous said...

You're right. But Friday featured the steady rain that, after falling for hours, left the fields treacherously slippery. I saw players sliding all over the place.

Don't get me wrong. I love tournaments. But these are short games with teams usually playing twice each day. So when you throw lousy weather on top of that, I'm not sure the MSSL results are a great barometer.

Anonymous said...

Deptford over SJEB last night. So they move into the quarterfinals to face the MF Black/Rancocas Valley winner.

NJ Force is already in the quarters and will take on the DoL/Berkeley winner.

Parsippany looks to book their spot in the quarters tonight against Jersey United.

Anonymous said...

Here's the remaining Round 3 schedule:

15-Apr: Jersey United/Parsippany
16-Apr: Vistula/Gottschee
17-Apr: DoL Galaxy/ EB
18-Apr: MF Black/Rancocas Valley
19-Apr: Westfield/Maximus
20-Apr: DoL Mustangs/Berkeley

Anonymous said...

5 or 6 to philly union? That makes no sense. Does Philly Union take just about anyone.

Anonymous said...

You can't really predict anything based on scores from last year. Same with the MSSL tournament because of the the terrible conditions. Also most of these teams have changed, for better or worse and it could be a toss up for the final spot. But if Parsippany beats Goetschee well they should have a good chance with EB and Match Fit

Anonymous said...

EB took Marlboro players. One player they took is a C level player, one is A level.

Anonymous said...

Parsippany has beaten Jersey Utd. to join NJ Force and Deptford in the quarterfinals.

Vistula hosts Gottschee tomorrow night.

Anonymous said...

I wonder why TSF and PDA Rooney didn't enter the State Cup.

Anonymous said...

Good question. PDA Rooney might have done very well.

Anonymous said...

Both EB and MF are the real beneficiaries of TSF and PDA passing on this tournament.

Based on the bracket set up, it looks like the seeding was...
1: EB
2: MF
3: NJ Force
4: Parsippany
5: Gottschee
6: DoL
7: SJEB
8: Morris Utd.

I assume returning champ EB was seeded 1st because the 1st round byes indicate Parsippany and Gottschee were seeded 4th and 5th.

The inclusion of SJEB and Morris Utd. in this top 8 resulted in very clear paths to the semis for EB and MF.

I think this would have been a lot tougher for both of them had TSF and PDA entered.

Anonymous said...

parsippany vs goetschee quarter final?? who's going to face EB

Anonymous said...

Can anyone confirm if Gottschee won last night? No result posted on the web site yet.

Anyway, if they did win that should be a great game against Parsippany.

I said above that I thought the Parsippany, Gottschee, EB trio was a toss up and feel no differently now. I just hope which ever one survives it goes on to win the final.

thoughts on nj cup quarter finals?

Anonymous said...

NJ Cup looks to be progressing as expected, even if some of the scores have been closer than one might have thought.

EB has gotten past the DoL Galaxy and will face the winner of tomorrow's Westfield/Maximus match in one quarterfinal.

Gottschee has gotten past Vistula and will meet Parsippany in a second quarter.

MF Black rolled over Rancocus Valley and will play Deptford in the quarters.

And NJ Force is still waited Monday's result between DoL and Berkeley to see who they'll face in the final quarter.
