I guess the person who stated dont take East Meadow lightly was correct. They beat NJ Stallions 1-0. The 3 best teams are in the same bracket in the same flight. Up next PDA vs East Meadow. That should be a great game. NJ Stallions whats going on? Your last 5 meaningful games you have scored Zero goals? 4 out of 5 losses. Hopefully you can break the slump against the alleycats but you still have PDA to play.The Ecnl Northeast conference goes to show you is the toughest league to play in. Adding Matchfit who just tied one of the best non ecnl teams in this region and East Meadow beating arguably the best or second best non ecnl team in NJ Stallions.Best of luck everyone
East Meadow ties Pda!East Meadow is no joke.Nj stallions could win their bracket tomorrow and play in finals. Oh wait not the dynamite team the dynamo on the other side.
Stallions win ! Stallions Win !ECNL FALLS FLAT and Stallions win!pda third in bracket- a sad wkdnot first, not second, but third as in last in bracket or bottom half.East Meadow surely proves a contender, but needs to win a big tourney to be consider with the big girls.Again, ecnl has some very good teams and some just very average.
New ecnl club Matchfit. 1st tourney n played the so called best team in region to a 2to1 game.Shows you how deep the ecnl is.Look how stallions did the previous tournament against ecnl teams. Didn't win a game n didn't score a goal.
East Meadow didn't lose a game and beat Stallions. They were best team at Newss.EM was unlucky this morning hitting the post n crossbar against alleycats. Nj stallions did what they had to do but be honest pda could of and should of won.
There is almost nothing about your statement that is honest. If the non-goal against the alley cats was "unlucky" then the pile up in front of goal in the EM game against the Stallions where 3-4 players were sprawled on the ground and no foul called was equally unlucky. Certainly, EM didn't play well- mediocre at best. Stallions were marginally better even with fully 85% of the possession. In the first game of their season the Stallions didn't get it done, EM won, that's the story. So congratulations on the win East Meadow. The coaches that were watching left at the end of the first half. They knew what garbage they were watching even if you didn't. PDA vs Stallions was a decent game. Neither team was at full strength. PDA was down at least 3 of their starters and Stallions had a few injured on the bench as well. Probably the first time ever that Stallions was able to field as many subs during a game as PDA. Still it was a strong energetic game and one that was played with an intensity and skill than East Meadow would never have been able to deal with. The college coaches got their money's worth and there is no doubt that many of players on that field did themselves proud in those coaches eyes. The real truth is that on Sunday, East Meadow, faced with a clear shot at playing the final couldn't beat a much lesser team that both PDA and the Stallions beat 3-0.
I have to agree with last post. EM doesn't possess the ball, always going for the home run. This is why they do not score much. Their D is top notch, left defender is fast and quite good. Goalies also good. That being said, Stallions and PDA are in different class. PDA even missing 4 starters showed better than EM, Stallions looked good also this early in the season. PDA had the better of the chances against the Stallions but didn't convert. Clear breakaway at the end, cross bar in the first half. Stallions converted a hustle goal in the second half with a pretty awesome shot through the goalies' hands. Stallions had slightly better play in the second half, PDA had a bunch of chances at the end of the first half and dominated the second portion of the first half. My sense is that Stallions bench is as deep as PDA's, the starting 11 is pretty even...Anyone see Match Fit?
Although I agree with a lot of the last 2 posters however I feel your selling EM short. Their style of play is a lot different then most and because of that they have the hardest defense to scoring. The players are solid but they play defense first and foremost with waiting for the few opportunities to capitalize on a goal. I don’t think many teams can compete with their defense of tactics. Please don't knock the style as each team is built and trained to its strengths. They have beat Stallions tied FCV/FC bucks/Montgomery/PDA so the results speak for it self. Maybe its time for this big bad teams in region 1 who are suppose to be the best to adjust and find away to beat EM. Nice job stallions bouncing back on Sunday.1. Coyotes.2. Stallions3. PDA then the next tier of teams 4-8
Can someone tell me if the Juventus team is NJx or Match fit and if its MF when did this happen.? They still have the same coach?
East Meadow has only played Coyotes once and the Coyotes won1-0.
pda Arsenal is not in top 10 of NJ anymore. Ranked 181 nationaly !180 teams ranked higher then pda Arsenal. Pda Arsenal starting to look a loke like a B team in PDA.just saying, keep Arsenal and other pda out of top 10 disscussion until they win something.This weekend in CASL will show much. All those 300 plus college coaches will at National League games in CASL.NJ Stallions Dynamite #1 in Nation
Please stop trolling and trying to stir up trouble. There is not one Stallions player or parent who has anything but the highest regard for their PDA opponents. Certainly not enough to post with such an obvious negative agenda. The girls on both sides are happy when they win, sad when they lose, but every time these two teams play together the kids learn more about the game and grow in their respect for each other. STOP IT!
Fc Bucks Ecnl 2 Fc Philadelphia Black 2 . . . :) First Time Meeting
Thanks FC Phila parent :)I just thought I chime in and give you some outside perspective.In all honesty the game was pretty boring. You didn't have a quality chance until the last 3 mins on goal.You had a PK with 10mins to make it 2-1.Then with 2mins to go was very lucky to tie it with getting a free direct kick in which the bucks goalie came out to get a ball and didnt realzie she was a step over the 18(the field outlines were faint.) Your only other quality chance was another direct kick in 1st half plus 2 other long shots that went over the net.Your team has talent but if they played you on turf I believe it would be alot different. Bucks girls took the foot of the brake more then once in that game.I also know they were missing 3 starters and leading goal scorer. Good luck the rest of the year and hopfully the teams can meet up in the future - with better field conditions and nicer weather.--Signed Fc Bucks Non Ecnl parent.
Any predictions for this up coming Casl Weekend?
Way to go FC Philadelphia! Is it true that the FC Bucks kids are still out doing wind sprints?
Matchfit ECNL cant be that strong. They beat the NJ Stallion Dynamo team 1-0 with 1 minute left in game on a PK and Dynamo is not one of your top teams.
Way to go Fc Phila you got a Tie!I never seen a team so happy - lolIf the bucks girls were really doing wind sprints then you can tell the differences between your team and their team. Your celebrating the tie while they are pissed at it.Next time win and we will give you your just kudos.Onto tomorrow - some great games so enjoy the games and have a safe trip.
Well said ---
Coyotes back to form. Finally got rid of some dead weight and added a couple really dynamic players that should and will be starting, and give them the added new focus they needed. The new forward is just awesome. A real super star they have been lacking and according to sources, she is playing up a year.
Fc Phil back to form losing again to Canada team. Hey you still have that tie!
Coyotes lost today and were shut out. Where was the new striker?
The new forward is very good but rarely will finish or complete a season with multi injuries/concussion and just not feeling good that day. Sometimes the pressure of being great gets a player overly stressed.
two more things learned today .....1. FC Phila lost again and are an average team in Region 1 on their best days. 2. Orlando city should have never been in the top flight. As a poster posted earlier last month. Losing 10 - 0 to Stallions today. Why would CASL put a team in that place to be embarrassed?
Stallions back to normal and crusing
I have 2 daughters at this event and I have to say that I was very disappointed with these crsp fields. I thought this tournmant would have been a lot better. I hope we aren't there next year.
ecnl gets HAMMERED at CASL. Only very good ecnl team was Maryland United(FreeState). BTW-best non-ecnl teams did not even need to beat them b/c they play in the undisputed top League (National League) Sad wkd for ecnl at u-16 and u-17
What happened to PWSI? They had awful results...I walked by their first two games and they had one of their strongest player #10 sitting down. Is she hurt does any one know? With their old coach leaving thing don't look so good for them. Pretty sad it was a good team.
Which League are you comparing the ecnl to?Doesn't make much sense to compare a league to the other organization now does it? East Meadow did very well. Looking at the national Youth Soccer bracket some poor showings as well from this region. So the best teams from region1 national league didn't farewell. The best teams from Region 1 Ecnl did well -aka Freestate and eastmeadow. PDA/Bucks/Stars weren't at this tournament so I am not sure who or what your comparing? I mean a 32 ranked ecnl team Casl played the number 1 got soccer team Stallions to a 2-1 game. PWSI? PDA South? Montgomery? what happened to those teams from national league? poor representation from region 1.
FC Phila what happened at CASL? 0-3 - Was that Canada team really good? They waxed everyone else.
Who is the NJ Rush team? What was their previous name, they had good results this weekend and beat Oakwood who is a very good team.
It looks like the Coyotes played well and are in good position.
Syracuse had a good weekend and are in the mix as well.
The team from Canada was a solid team and played well. Stallions and NJ Rush represented NJ well this weekend @ U16. The NJ Rush team is the old NJSA team that played out of Highlands in South Jersey.
