11:52- Are you subject to random drug testing?Are you saying that MF has quality players on 3 MF teams at this age? To be fair, I have not seen the new MF Blue team play. Is that the third team you are referring to?
None of these seem appealing to someone at that level.October 22, 2014 at 11:09 AM"At what level? If your daughter is in the bottom 4 players of say PDA/MF top team and not playing, but you do not want them to play on the teams people suggested to you (Wildcats, B teams, ect), then you have to take a step back and get a reality check. If your daughter is not playing on the "A" team, she is not good enough to be there. The next options might be her skill level. Say when you say "those clubs are not appealing", are you saying your daughter is better than that? WOW
Players that have started and taken on significant roles with their last team, Wildcats, Sta , etc. find themselves getting less playing time at PDA.They left for a better situation- i don't think they want to go back after to the situation that they wanted to escape from in the first place.
Blue is the 4th team at Match Fit
If you are not getting adequate time on the top team make sure you don't drop down to a lower level team that has roster of more than 18.makes no sense at all, especially at 2nd level team in club.
11:52 I hope so but I don't think so. everything I've seen tells me that Match fit at this age group will be chasing PDA , just like all the other age groups.It will not be different at this age group.
12:50 not sure they would all be welcomed back anyway.
12:59 Is your assumption that the player not getting adequate time on a Pre-ECNL team would not get adequate time on an NPL team? If the player was good enough to make ECNL team playing time will not be an issue regardless of the roster size. Players that can ball don't get bad overnight. I think the increased roster size is to take on players of equal ability to the players at the bottom of the rotation instead of cutting the existing players. These girls will fight for minutes and to be on the roster next year. How are you seeing this any other way? Yes, there will also be some increased revenue. So be it.
As long as parents will pay, then the rosters will never again shrink to 18.All above 15 or 16 on roster will play only in events like EDP Cup which will be entered as was the case last week to give them a bone/playing time in a throwaway event.
Haha PDA Storm excuse
I would say best option in North if not Storm or MF Black would be STA. My daughters team has played them and they seem to have solid team.They also have good coach and good facilities. I'm sure cost is in line with all the other teams.
Does PDA roster really consist of 25 spots???
I would agree with 11:49 but I would take off NJSCA. Not a stable situation. Also, I would say that coaching will most likely be consistant on the NPL teams of PDA and MF. They have a reputation to uphold.
11:52, PDA has the top NPL program with PDA South (AJAX) and PDA North (Dragons). Why would anyone leave these teams to go to a potential dysfunctional MF situation that is brewing over who is the ECNL team? What 3 teams at MF are better than those 2 PDA teams?
1:23 PM is the most transparent pathetic thing ever. Can't score a goal on STA
To soccer nut: appreciate your well thought out comments , but again I have to ask about the value placed on who is coaching. I've seen people make a decision with this as a big factor only for that coach to then not be there.
How does a player get more playing time? Play better than others of course but if you aren't playing much to begin with, that's hard to do. Do you think coaches notice showing up on time not missing practices, going all out in practice etc and reward this with playing time ? Or is it just the better players play and that's life ?
What is typical roster size for this age ?
MF will mix to get best kids on the field next year for ECNL. Current pre ECNL and NE NPL are better that STA, Ajax and Dragons and play Storm very equally most games. Just think about putting those girls together as PDA has already done for ECNL. Will be fun to watch. STA needs to step it back a bit... Need more substantial results. Turning in to Wildcats....
Roster size is 18 for my daughter's team (ECNL, PA).
MF...who is the ECNL team?Let's seeeeeee nowww......The pre ECNL kind of gives this away
There were murmurs over the summer that STA had a special player joining their ranksThis was already a very solid team.Very dangerousI will call the upset for Saturday vs Wildcats
Beating them would be one of those results needed to say you are improving.
3:01, Last time I checked PDA North and MF NPL had a score of 0-0 this fall. And the Storm has two teams to draw from. MF only has 1. Imagine that team if Stirn can choose from 40 new girls.
Central Jersey? Look at Boca. Great coaching, limited B.S. a team on the verge.
I would say STA has improved, yes they need more wins against the top tier teams, Their results at EDP Cup says a lot plus a win against WC/NJCSA is a good start.They have lost to Wildcats twice and Calvert.Think they just need more offense and depth.Seems they are the team that the saying "any given day" holds true could be a good win or a bad loss
I thought Boca was in Florida?
3:00PM "What is typical roster size for this age ?" 8.5" x 11" same as other ages
That was almost clever, and funny, ah what the heck, I will give it to you, hahaha.
STA dominated Jaguars, beat NJCSA Galaxy and dispatched World Class pre ECNL in late August event for a key boost - up to 4th in state - and deservedly so.Forward to EDP Cup, where they tie PDA ECNL and defeat BOTH FSA teams. Loss 1-0 to NYE up and comer Atletico a tough blemish that kept STA from the title
STA - 14 goals allowed in 19 games since late August
STA Dominated Jaguars?Possession was in favor of Black team, both teams created scoring chances.Your team was leading 2-1, until late when coach pushed players up to try to tie game. Missed on several chances, STA you scored on a late goal to win 3-1. Domination? Nice try. Teams were very even, Black controlled ball compared to your STA teamhow does it feel to loose in possession to a 3rd team of Match Fit? Yes you won barely, plus this is your A Team. Ouch!
@2:56Usually you can find coach and organization together. They are not mutually exclusive.In my experience if a great coach leaves for another position, the parent may have the option to stay with that coach and continue training or stay with the organization. But your initial choice, should be about who is coaching your daughter, not blindly pick an organization. I cannot count the number of times an organization will fill a younger team with a new coach trying to follow the club script.Buyer should always beware.If your coach leaves a great organization and is replaced with a less desirable coach then find another great organization with a better coach.
Soccer Nut ^^^^
Best in that situation if you keep lines of communication open with teammatesThen you can decide, knowing which players are staying/going.Might be better to stay without the coach.With the best clubs you would already know the new coach anyway.
Jaguars is NEVER getting 2 on that STA team, so once you surrendered 2 you were done.Original post not from STA. Learn how to talk about the division, not just your team.
Stay humble on the way up, Jags.Give respect to get
On the way up? Jaguars have won 3 of their last 25 games, per gotsoccer
No where to go but up
Funny that this team is even being discussed.Nothing against the girls - but they are so often overmatched. May be better served dropping down in competition level.Tough though - what do you do, say "we know we are Match Fit but that doesnt mean we should be in a top flight?"
Yes,,that is exactly what you say so you play competitive matches.
It is good to lose some matches but 22 out of 25 is no fun at all. Drop down.
Hey @320, I agree but why would you call STA beating Wildcats an upset? With all due respect to Wildcats, a STA win on Saturday would not surprise me in the least. In fact I am expecting it. Is there something wrong with that?
BOCA, you have a great chance - if you get placed in the top flight. 3 Strong GS teams should bring lots of points to this end of season affair. Have your girls prove they belong with the top at this event - if MAPS sees them as a top flight team.Americans RebelsDMS Soccer Academy GU13Edison United SA Lightning BoltsGreater Binghamton FC 01 SelectHarford FC United ThunderHarleysville HFC Ready '01Jersey Premier Soccer FlashJersey Shore Boca Jr FC FusionLower Merion SC HerricanesMedford Strikers SC SoulMercer FC SpursNew Jersey Rush 01 Girls BlueNJ Crush FC Tsunami WhitePA Crew Academy BlueSTA Morris United 01

Not sure we ever had a spring or fall CUP where every team entered.
10:13 They were not NCS Finalist. They were Nj Cup finalist. Two different events.10:20 Doesn't matter if every team enters or not that's their choice. With or without them the show must go on.
Only Rage, Storm & NJX made the finals of both events in the same year. STA also made the final 4 in both events in the same year. No other team has. That could be because they didn't enter (their choice, their loss) or it could mean that they didn't qualify.
Now for a little NYE HistoryNYE has been the Hicksville aka EM domination Cups.They Own 1 NCS Cup and 2 NY State Cups.Sachem reached Finals of the last 2 NCS CupsWhile NYSC won the 2014 NY Cup the only one the Hotshotz did not.NYE NCS Champions20141 Sachem Speed 0 HBC Barracudas20135 Hicksville: Hotshotz 0 Sachem: Speed20121 SO.

I did not list final 4s becasue NCS Cup only had Final scores archived. Not fair to list one and not the other so I didn't list any.
US CLUB Cup StatesFlorida Cup Hawaii State Cup Illinois State Cup Indiana Cup Minnesota US Club Cup New Jersey Cup New York Cup NorCal State Cup Ohio State Cup Washington CupEM the only NJ/NYE team to win the double.EM the PDA of NYE for this age group. They play in as many leagues, state cups,tournaments that they can to get their kids ton of games and soccer IQ, one can't argue with the success they have had thus far with this approach including Pre-ECNL league
EM is a very, very nice teamThe CLUB is having some troubles ($$)
EM is under siege right now, and I would not be surprised if coach D. Tried to move the entire team over to Albertson, since their older ECNL teams are floundering, and the Hotshotz are a legit group, that might bring some glory back to the big A.
Under siege by whom?
Why did they join Em in the first place?
I have no idea, perhaps to play in ECNL, they were at Hicksville, which is a town team. Maybe they offered them some kind of sweet deal, who knows?
Albertson doesn't usually take in full teams with a coach. They are building their own ecnl team. East Meadow was willing to take he whole team and the coach. I doubt they will leave. It's ecnl. They are doing well. It's close to Hicksville, where they all came from. Who cares about the rest of the club.
Some clubs are every team for themselves and some spend some effort at club building / age group building. The latter is a much better environment overall.
Albertson is a $$$$ making machine from what I have heard. They seem to be able to survive with or without glory for their older age groups.
@2:10 True, but neither LI club is really into building and training.
Sounds like a job for Steven Seagal
BOCA is good up and coming, good trainers and coach. Trainer is college coach, they just won Silver at EDP cup, pretty easily, now go with big girls and pull pants up and lets see what happens.
Such a shame, between Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk they should have been able to build 3 to 4 Strong clubs. No excuses with the numbers they have in regards to latinos and euros it should have been an easy build. EM having issues explains why no NPL teams this year. SO the big question is what does ECNL do with them? DO they Virginia Rush them and kick them out of ECNL or do they merge with another Club to stay in ECNL like Soccer + and FSA?
Did BOCA apply to Both MAPS events?Or did they apply to Challenge first and then split for MAPS Cup because they think some easy points to be had?Top 11 GS teams are:3 of them will be 2nd Flight for sure and I'm sure MAPS will be looking to add one more team to the 15 that have applied if no other teams applies.Not a bad little EVENT. 19 Greater Binghamton FC 01 Select57 Harford FC United Thunder70 PA Crew Academy Blue114 Jersey Premier Soccer Flash155 Mercer FC Spurs228 New Jersey Rush 01 Girls Blue271 Jersey Shore Boca Jr FC Fusion298 STA Morris United 01307 Harleysville FC Ready '01379 DMS Soccer Academy GU13432 NJ Crush FC Tsunami White
I think part of issue is priorities. Nassau has sky high school taxes and great schools. Many girls are ultimately headed for grad school and focused more on academics than d1.They love their soccer but to a point.
Priorities means parents' priorities. They are only willing to put up with so much BS for daughter to play soccer at certain club.
@3:24 BOCA has been applied to both tournaments for quite sometime now. Doesn't look like they are "splitting". My guess is after the wins that came so easy at the EDP Cup, they are looking to move up and be challenged with some of the better teams. Let's see if they get the top flights after moving to #20 in NJ.
What's up with the edp own cup? Not nearly enough teams entered. Will it happen?
6:17 I hope they get top flight.
7:28 PM what do you mean not nearly enough teams for EDP open Cup There are 21 teams, that's more than entered the State Cup.ALLEYCATS U13 GIRLS ELITE (NYE)ALUMNI HAWKS (NJ)BEACHSIDE SC CT BEACHSIDE (CT)CES CALVERT CREW WHITE (MD)ESSC/HENLOPEN WHITECAPS (DE)FC COPA ACADEMY LIMA NPL (NJ)INTERNATIONAL GIRLS FUTBOL ACADEMY 01-02 (NJ)JERSEY PREMIER SOCCER FLASH (NJ)JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION (NJ)MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC BLACK NORTH (NJ)MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC BLUE NORTH (NJ)MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC ECNL (NJ)MEDFORD SC HURRICANES (NJ)NEW JERSEY RUSH HAMILTON WILDCATS 01 GIRLS (NJ)NJCSA ELITE (NJ)NJCSA GALAXY (NJ)PDA SHORE FUSION (NJ)PISCATAWAY JAGUARS (NJ)REAL SHORE LAKEWOOD FC CREW (NJ)SJEB '01G NPL (NJ)TSF ACADEMY 01/02G (NJ)
Many holes in the schedule-besides the byes. They'll need to reset schedule if they can't fill the " teams to be determined".
3 TBDs, I think they can work it out. 21 teams is a far cry from "Not Nearly Enough Teams"
Looks like a nice tournament as a matter of fact.
NCS (SC) Predictions STA 3 - Wildcats 2 ShootoutTSF 3 - Crush 1
edp open cup will certainly be very interesting to say the least. I am gathering the one person critiquing is not in it. Look at that line up, and this weekend we have some clash of the Titans and some David and Goliath coming up. Watch BOCA, Real Shore, Piscataway, Medford, Hawks win this cup and all the PDA and MF parents go nuts that they pay double what these teams pay. Would not mind seeing the bashed GFA group win also, and possibility NJCSA runs away with two entries. I cannot imagine a better way, in this NON guest player environment to see who is really and truly the best?? Please disagree or let me know why????????
Guest players do change tournament outcomes, lets be honest here, especially you can bring 4. So now your apparent team is really not winning with team, but guests. So league play and EDP open cup best way to see who is king of mountains
It would be interesting to say the least if one of the above mentioned could win it or even make it to the finals.My prediction has TSF vs Calvert or MF in the final. I heard that the GFA team is done at this age group though they have lost several good players to MF and Crush and they had problems fielding teams last year.
That EDP Cup list is deeper and better than the SC entries.MF ECNL will be the heavy favorite with the biggest bulls eye on them. Don't think they will allow a goal.
Why isn't MF NPL registered? Maybe they will use their better players on the ECNL team. The rest of the team can help MF black and blue.
no way MF would risk the NPL/ECNL matchup.That's why. NJX will go back to SC
That is why I don't see the reasoning why she took her team to MF. Last year NJX was entering these tournaments and probably getting to at least semi-finals. Now they are not even participating, why? because big brother Pre-ecnl team is there. What a waste of a good team. A team that won 2 state cups, finished in at least semi's in top flights at top tournaments. Now they get 2nd flights, or not even entering. And some people on here will say, it was a great move for exposure, or for a chance to play on ECNL team. How is that working out?
I'm a huge ECNL fan, but I agree with you, 11:37. I think that team's exposure has actually been reduced, not increased, since joining MF.
ECNL team at Matchfit is built to last over the course of the next 5 years.NJX team not so much.
If this keeps up, MF/NJX will be back playing EDP soccer soon. This blog is going to explode in the Spring when the curtain is pulled back and all is revealed to the rest of the NJX parents.They sold their club for 3 magic beans.
12:36 Yes, it's called parents in denial.
I don't think you can blame it on one person. I agree they were better off without MF. NJX would be the 2014 State Cup Champions if they entered this Fall. Would have been a sweep 2014 NJ Cup and 2014 NJ State Cup Champions.
True.. My daughter's team would have beaten everyone in all the tournaments they didn't enter too.
Wait a second are you saying the same team was better off with the NJX brand and GS Points playing in EDP rather than playing for a National NPL title and the Match Fit brand? For real NJX over Match Fit brand? Ask someone outside of NJ who NJX is - I bet you nobody knows.
2:00PMAnd why couldn't NJX play for National NPL title? If your team is a top team and competing in top tournaments do you care what someone outside of NJ knows about your team? There are plenty of teams not called MF or PDA that are in top 5 of their age group. Over the past 4 years, the following teams won the National Cup in their age group: - PDA Gunners - Twin County - FC Copa - TSF So you tell me, how important is it to be part of MF?
Regarding NJX, my thinking is that unless there is an obvious immediate benefit to the team, you don't make the switch until you absolutely have to. Maybe the best players would have eventually left to got MF. Why hasten the process?In theory, Match Fit wins because they get access to the best NJX players at U13 (as opposed to, say, at U15). And those good players get seen earlier by MF and it presumably eases their assimilation into MF. But what does the bulk of the team get? What does the old NJX coach get? Current B team status (and likely eventual C team status once their best players leave). If B/C team status was coming their way eventually anyway once their best players left (not a sure thing), why hasten the process?
Because the longer you wait the harder it will be to find a very good team for those players that are not ecnl quality
No matter what team you are on, it will be tough to replace ECNL quality players. But having their reputation, don't you think they will still be able to recruit good players? Yes, ECNL players will go to a few teams, but they are still not going to MFNJX now. Either way they are not seeing that top talent on their team. If they stayed NJX, they had a chance to keep them longer.
You're being too thoughtful. NJX was sold for no beans. It was given away so that the parent coach could keep herself in the picture. NJX has only a few high level prospects. The bottom players would hardly impact their B team. It is time to get real.
Is there any rule that a club in npl can only field 1 NPL team er age group ? I know that they have to put at least 1 in every age group to be eligible-- but could MF or PDA for example, have 2 NE NPL teams in a given age group ??
No Disrespect to the other clubs but they are the only Clubs in Addition to FC Stars that could have put a 2nd team in NPL.For this Age group I would like to MF North and FC Stars North join the league next year.
And why couldn't NJX play for National NPL title?Becasue NPL is club based.
4:49 here, they couldn't play for an NPL title but they could play for a Region 1 title that would put them in a national Event.
Folks. The MF ECNL team right now is not better than MF NE NPL team. MF NE NPL has better top 4 players than any top player at ECNL team. The difference is the second half of ECNL team is stronger than remaining players on NE NPL. The top 4-5 NPL players will be on the ECNL team come Spring and you will see some mixing in soon maybe during some tourneys. That is going to be some team. So why is that a bad move for all? The top get what they want and the rest fight it out to make a strong NPL team. Yes, you will have fall of but sign me up all day long for that chance..... To say you would not take it if you were offered it is just being bitter to be bitter.....
Correct...the top NJX players will go to the designated number one team. But the middle and bottom NJX players will suddenly realize that they have been left to carry the water and they are not prepared technically or athletically to do so. They will retreat to their town teams expressing statements like "we are better for the experience".Then they will quickly realize that they are unable to dominate levels below them as they were supported by the better players for so many years, that their development was "overlooked".
Development was there for the taking. Some improved, some not so much. There will be middle level kids that will make the NPL team. Bottom third will not and that is life. They had a nice ride and were given the chance this year to prove their worth to the coaches to see if they fit on the NPL team. Again, not a bad thing in my eyes for all the kids on that team.
So, the #1 MF girl would be ranked #5 on the npl team? That could be the most hysterical thing I ever heard! Thank you! You started my weekend off with a great laugh. Please keep your gems of wisdom coming. I look forward to the absurdity. Wait, are you the mommy? Now it makes sense.
Parents still in denial at MF NPL.It will hurt all the more when they find out they have been duped all along.
7:02I thought that was a bit over the top myself.That comment sounds like" move over matchfit ECNL, we are coming in and because of us the team will be so much better"They are a little full of themselves.
6:13pm did you start happy hour early?4 NPL players better than the players on ECNL players. There are only 2 players maybe 3 that can assist ECNL team. 4th player to be in consideration, having problems staying healthy, dedication not there.NPL team started to go south last spring after winning NJ Cup. Reason for downward spin, better teams were able to out play this team with soccer skill as shown at latest tournaments played in. Yes they are doing well right now in NPL. Good for them, will have to beat PDA North. yes they beat PDA South without Rage girl that played with Storm.MF ECNL team for a reason. Better all around team, better players (skill players)
4 girls carrying MF Pre ECNL and 4 girls carrying MF NPL. If it weren't for those players, both teams wouldn't be crap. A lot of players hidden behind the better players. I wouldn't say one team has better skilled over the other. I think one team has a coach who cares about the way they play and the other team has a coach who can't wait to get their hands on the goods.
MF pre ECNL got even better when they brought up GFA player and Dad to coach. Was that a slap in the face or what?
MF ECNL has a solid 11-12 players on the roster. This team does not rely on one player, if anyone has any kind of information regarding this team would know this. Many injuries to better players last year did not hurt play at all.Yes I agree with 7:45pm, Coach up North cares for his team and put so much time towards this team while Coach down south just wants to grab what he can to take credit. This will not work, look at U14 team. Its a disaster
MF npl has one standout girl. That is it. Problem is parents think their kids are better than they really are. They have been treated like superstars since they came to njx/ MF. No commitment. Its going to come crumbling down soon. Couldn't have happened to a nicer person. Good job coach.
Dad only coaches his own daughter.
Dad coach up North? Nice try, this coach coaches all kids the exact same. For one year playing vs this coach, I thought his kid was someone else.If referring to GFA coach, Ok I can see this. Have not seen him coach at MF yet
Which Dad? MF, EM or WC?
or PDA?.They all have Daddy coaches on the sidelines.
PDA coach, now he coaches his own kid!
9:23.I never see a reason why any dad at a high level has to coach their own kid.. In this age group particularly, it is particularly egregious.US soccer frowns on it for a reason.
100% correct ^^^
Basically another symptom of "Helicopter Parent"
Wake up MF ECNL. You r in same boat. Top players have elevated bottom. You will be in for a rude awakening yourselves when top NPL kids are slowly merged onto that team. Already started. You can bet on it. That team has hit their ceiling as well. They need the influx of the top kids from NPL andit is going to happen. You are high if you think that team is more. Than 6-8 deep.
Helicopter Parent? These aren't u8town teams. These are 4 of the top 6 teams in NY/NJ. These guys have coached these teams and they've achieved an incredible level of success. Tell me you wouldn't run if any of these coaches came calling for your daughter.
Incredible level of success doesn't mean what you think it does.
9:53 Please take a taxi home from wherever you are. You clearly started your weekend early. So now were we stand is that next year's ECNL team will be comprised of 6-8 Prencl girls and 10-12 NPL girls. I tell you who hopes you are correct:PDA, EM, WC etc.
9:56There is no room for Father coaches.Your are mistaken. People go running to these organizations in spite of the father coaches-not because of the coaches.
10:05 So, you don't agree with Father coaches. Your daughter is skilled enough to play for any team and you join a club with a father coach? If you don't like father coaches stay away from those clubs.
I love how NPL Parents are so cluesless
Fortunetly, after this year, the father coach situation will take care of itself. Their daughters will have to stand on their own merit just like everybody else.
7:38I believe you had a long drinking night yourself. You are saying players are dedicated enough? Do you have first hand knowledge of this? Maybe you do. Maybe you are the mole! LOLSad that you would come on here and say a player has no dedication. Do you have dedication? Maybe players/parents will be more dedicated when MATCH FIT becomes more dedicated. Although my daughter isn't in the top 5, everything we have been told is shaky. But this is why you sign 1 year contracts.
Go STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01!
Well isn't a contract a commitment? Neither MF or the players are fulfilling their obligations. Training is a disaster, but how can you expect good training when nobody shows up? Earlier poster was correct about npl not going into tournaments because they plan on using npl players with the ecnl team. Those players have been contacted already, leave dates open.
You can debate how many from each team but it will be a mix of both. Yes, probably a few more from current ECNL but it will be a mix. That is what academy soccer is about. You earn your merit with the coaches and they pick who they feel are the best girls to represent the top team. We have ALL seen both teams play. They are both top heavy with difference makers. Those difference makers will be combined and then the back third of the team will be a toss up. Happens EVERY year. The only person denying this has a kid on the team that will not make that top team because of this mix. Sorry but it happens at this level all the time. Look at all the movement on Storm. You think that will stop. Hell no...... Always looking for better talent. You don't want that, go find a lower level club.
Wildcats win 3-1.
Is that a prediction?
Any other JAGS scores?
Congrats wildcats on your first state cup..
1 - From Nostradamus - Hey @320, I agree but why would you call STA beating Wildcats an upset? With all due respect to Wildcats, a STA win on Saturday would not surprise me in the least.

The Secret to being a top GS team in NY/NJ/PA - Just play a bunch of NJ tournaments in addition to a league that gives points.As you can see from NJ's top 3 teams all their success came from NJ tournaments/leagues which has made them look like National powers.

Thanks, 11:56Good luck tomorrow
12:03Going forward, to KEEP the points, these teams need to win outside the state
What team has won outside the state?
Nj Crush 2 TSF 1 Hard fought intense game though Crush had more and better scoring chances.
The points will not mean anything to PDA. ECNL teams do not need points for their events.
3:57- Agreed PDA Storm will always get top bracket regardless of points.
Any NPL scores?

Those 5 teams don't represent the state of NJ, don't you read this board. Take them out of this talk and break down the other NJ teams, the other 5 in your top 10. I bet it's a different story. Sorry NJ you can't rag on PDA and MF and then have them come rescue you as well. The board always said there is more to NJ soccer than PDA and MF. Show me
I will save you the time the below NJ teams are in NJ top 10 and in the top 80 Nationally.

Sorry, MF Black - Harford has beaten nobody ...... just some outfit called Pipeline Black
edp open Cup PDA shore fusion beats Real Shore 2-0. Real Shore keeper had about 25-30 saves, saved their buts from 7-0 romping. Real had one shot on goal, and it was a weak one, no offense. Won handily under lights Saturday night. Coach from PDA yellow carded, but fought and pushed his girls, came out with different plan in 2nd half when 0-0 and beat them. next..............
You people can say what you want about wildcats. Make fun of their style, coach or parents. After watching STA play Storm and then thr Wildcats, I'd put my money on Wildcats over storm any day. Crush doesn't stand a chance today.
You can argue Wildcats are the favorite but you can't say Crush doesn't stand a chance. Just stupidity.

8:05I would take that bet!STA would get crushed playing the regular storm team.Wildcats cats on a big open field. No chhance.
Crush doubters beware! Crush wins again today 2-0, returns to the discussion of being a top NJ team, picks up few nice players over the winter & the Crushcopter returns!
Hey 9:05, What is the "normal" Storm team.
Looks like Wildcats detractors pulling for CrushAll in good fun, I supposeCongratulations to the finalists. Let's see a good goal be the winner.Then we can move on to talk about the spring tourney.
So if the Regulars didn't play for Storm, their bottom 11-22 are easily replaceable with players from the 1-11's of the other top 10 teams.
The wildcard in the SC game today will be the wind. Usually keeps the games low scoring. Favors the Crush. Could go to penalty kicks.
Anybody can win today, thats what great about this years State Cup. Without PDA and MF teams this thing was wide open.Will it be like this every Fall? Will PDA and MF play in the Spring NJ Cup?Good luck Crush and Wildcats!
Say what you want about MF Black. Not many Wins, Yes. But they were in every game but one, this team looks close to turning the corner.

PDA Storm is a team with what 25 players? The train together but only 18 can dress, they are not two teams the regulars vs non-regulars. Isn't PDA about one bench one team? Funny reading this board some people think their S%^t don't stink and are not on board with PDA's philosophy.
12:31.I am usually not a PDA defender , howeverI dont think it works like that with any team.Players are always Tiered.Unfortunate fact of life.That's why new players are always added for better players on any team.
"to better any team"
Normal storm team..lol. They are missing one player who makes a difference in games. Different team without her. Just ask Crush...
PDA has a bunch of strong players to choose from. They will use this year, especially the Spring, to mix and match players. Come August U14 they will have their "team" in place. Of course there will always be room for any superstars to come later but they will have a good idea of what they have this year.Agree with a post earlier that PDA cuts will help to improve STA, COPA, Crush, etc
Wildcats, STA, Crush, TSF and MF Black round out the 6 thru 10 spots of NJ top 10. Great job in SC by all.
Who won took the easy win today
PDA new girl is a difference maker also. She carried the weight on her shoulders at rage, the two games I saw her play for PDAthey played long ball more like rage used to. Moved around to different positionsto try to free her up.other players standing around watching. Strong player will take time to fit in. Did she play against Breakers?

You beat a glorified rec teamCongrats
4:12: Thanks for the sarcastic congratulations. It's still well received, and due this group of kids.
Congrats to the Wildcats, bravo girls!
The better team won the SC. It. However, it only continues to prove the Wildcats are a top 3 or 4 team in the state.
You kidding me with state cup. Stop! Let the girls enjoy but to say it is the same as past years is just being disrespectful to other girls that beat top teams to win it. Enjoy but please stop.....
Worldclass is simply not the team it used to be.I am not sure where the blame lies, but this team has surely changed
You are the one saying it, nobody else did. Here is an idea, how about YOU stop and let these girls enjoy a job well done without your idiotic comments. Leave it alone already!!!!

Cats will win Bethesda! Best team in NJ, Period.
Wildcat haters on suicide watch today!!Hide the belts and razor blades.Buy a ticket haters and you can come watch us at Regionals!!
First you say how much STA is improved and they had such great results recently tied Storm ,etc. new striker this season,and would be so dangerous, then when wildcats beat them easily(led 3-0 2nd half) they are a glorified rec team.You guys are such miserable haters please continue to predict we lose every time.You guys are our good luck charm!
As usual Wildcats need a no name sc to win and now are comparing it to Bethesda. Good luck. As usual, you have won NOTHING of substance. And you will have nothing and nobody to play come next year. So what good is that???
