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.

Being that this is a u14 blog, I am assuming from an earlier post that playing at the next level was referring to college. After college, into the working world. That is reality.

Can people stop posting that Red Bulls is the best in NJ? Everybody knows that. Also, just because your kid won't go pro, doesn't mean you have to say it so negatively.

OK, you wont get a full scholarship either. Just wont. 98% wont get a dime.

I agree that scholarships are unlikely for the vast majority.

But I think that the ability to walk on and play could give a kid the advantage he may need in the most important competition he faces...to get accepted to a particular school of his choice. And if that's the case then it's all been worth it.

Just spotted that Roma beat Marlboro in the EDP League. So it looks like this one will come down to the EB/PB match on Sunday. A win for EB (or even a draw) should be enough to win the league for them (assuming they also beat TSF next week).

But if PB can win the match then Roma can take the league with a win over the Stallions in their final game.

PB's chances of winning the league are pretty slim as they'd not only have to beat EB, but EB and Roma would also have to lose to TSF and Stallions.

EB have had a great spring and winning this league would not only top it off for them, but could even push them up to GS's #1 spot.

EB lost against PB 4-2 in EDP tournament today. It will be interesting to see how this tournament is going to end. At this level anything can happen with any team.

EB's EDP loss yesterday took them out of the driver's seat for the league title...and Roma has now jumped into their spot. With a win over Stallions tonight, Roma would clinch the league.

But if Roma were to draw or lose tonight, an EB win over TSF tomorrow night would give them the league title.

Were EB to lose again to TSF, PB and Roma could end up even on 18 points should Roma draw tonight. Oddly, EDP doesn't seem to make their tie-breaking process very clear. So PB may need Roma to lose as well leaving them on the outside looking for a lot of luck.

My guess is that Roma will win it tonight. But if they don't, I really doubt EB will let it slip from their grasp a for a second time in 4 days.

Considering that the staliions lost 5-1 to tsf, an average team, there is almost no way for gotschee to lose tonight.

Roma just won against stallions 2-1

Anonymous said...

The 2-1 score is posted on the EDP site so Roma has ended up unbeaten (6 wins and 2 draws) and wins the league with 20 points.

So PB ends the spring with the MAPS Cup championship and their appearance in the NJ Cup final as their highlights. Not bad at all.

EB wins the NJ Cup which is a good spring all on it's own (ask Den of Lions).

Roma wins the EDP league which is, well, the league.

Marlboro's highlight was making their final at the EDP Cup which doesn't sound too impressive on it's own. But they beat both Patriots Red and NYSC last month and also had a win over PB back in March (after getting pasted by them the week before). So not too bad of a spring for them either.

Well then, congratulations to the teams and the boys!
Good accomplishments by the top four.
I'm sure we will see more action for the summer leagues.

EB let the two last games slip through their fingers......or should I say their goalies' fingers.

From what I saw, they need a new goalie if they wish to stay on top of the ranks.

Regardless, I agree with the poster above.

Congrats to all the top four teams.

I'd agree that a spectacular spring got away from EB right at the end. They did fine with the NJ Cup win but adding the EDP League to that (or even another tournament) would have meant a great spring for them.

In the end, I'd guess they're a actually a little disappointed in the way things worked out.

PDA 2000 beats RBNY 1-0 in NPL finals today. Nationals in July in North Carolina.

Super Y has started and so far Parsipanny has beaten Stallions 1-0 in another intense match between these rival teams. Much better discipline shown by both teams this year. Also, Stallions beat Patriot Red 2-0 which is a massive turn of events after their poor season. Should be interesting!

Does anyone care about Super Y?

Well Super Y is a part of gs now so I think yes.

Super Y was much better when it wasn't a part of GS. The level of competition has decreased dramatically. Who cares about points?

Anonymous said...

More people than you think care about pts. but awarding them prioritizes winning over development.

Anonymous said...

Maybe super y will become more competitive again now that pts. are awarded.

Super-Y is a very lop-sided league.
A lot of different levels all rolled into one. Can any team join this league?

Anonymous said...

Yes..it is just a business that improved due to Got Soccer points..unfortunately, points have become more important than growth and development. As for academies, the ones that are free are the true definition of an academy.

Super Y offers the best competition at this time of year. If you want some time off, no problem. But let's knock those who want to keep playing.

Sorry, my intention was to say "let's NOT knock those who want to keep playing.

I think it's great for kids to want to keep playing over the summer but I don't understand why the super y league is considered to be an elite league.

The best players are nominated for the super-y ODP camp held in Florida in the winter.

Super Y is nothing more than a summer league.

Looks like Marlboro is out looking for players again. Did they lose some?

Anonymous said...

Word is they may have lost a few to EB and High School.

Anonymous said...

Lost their coach/trainer again, players leaving.

Looks like EB may be the top guns again if that is the case.

Marlboro lost their coach again? Why cant this team keep a coach?

Anonymous said...

Because the training group does not retain its employee's.

Anonymous said...

Yes, all of these trainers stay where they are all the time, and there is never any turnover. Trainers are very loyal to their teams. LOL
