So Storm can't play on grass? They only show their skill and win when on turf ?

The Storm and NJX banter is foolish. They had their game, NJX won. Both would agree thats the game that matters.Both teams looking forward to next year with their new additions.EDP results are for town teams to recruit with. Storm and NJX both preparing for ECNL.
11:19 I disagree with you. So you are saying when MF and PDA ECNL teams leave all other leagues don't matter? To you of course, and to the players in those leagues, of course.But the Northeast and Mid-Atlantichave 5 NPLS that will send 5 teams to a National Event. NJ has clubs in 3 of those leagues.Let's not forget the region 1 premier that will send teams to the National League at u14. Wait we also have region 1 Colonial and the US Club Premier Leagues that will also be sending teams to a National Event. Plus the State Cups that send teams to a National event.So what is your argument? the ECNL teams will be stacked with talent compared to the others - I agree (but maybe not all) or is your post a dig at the MF Black team saying NJX is the ECNL team.We might find out once the ECNL website gets updated for the 2014/2015 season or we may have to wait for the 2015/2016 season. Why not just enjoy what we have now a few more games left in the 2013/2014 season with the Summer to get ready for the Fall.
You mistake my post to think ,it is about winning or losing.I did not say it was about who is the better team, it was about which team is more skillful and which team is better technically trained.The storm team shows skill on both grass or turf, but pristine fields, always highlight a team's skill.Most parents want their kids to be taught skill as a foundation to get them ready for the more advanced game when they are about 15.NJX may win or lose the game at this point, but if you have your eye on the bigger picture, you will be concentrating on which team is more technical.Ball movement, settlement, quick touches and soccer IQAfter all if you paying these type of fees, you sure as hell want your kids to be refining their technical skills.So most will be looking at the win or a loss, some will be looking at the training.
11:29 I agree with you the training is the most important piece of the puzzle (11:27 here). But the only way to measure the success of the training is by comparing results. I know the results don't mean a thing at u12 - but it is fun to chat about at least for me it is.I also don't want to rush things u15 is 3 years from now. I want to enjoy the rest of u12, u13 & u14. That's what I use this board for to talk about the now, of course teams will be different in a few years, some girls will no longer be playing and those damn BOYZ will come into the picture eventually as well.For the record - to me you are 100% spot on when you say "Ball movement, settlement, quick touches and soccer IQ" is most important for the players that want to make Soccer part of their life in College and beyond - for the rest it's playing against others to WIN. That's is why we all played and the reason our kids play in addition to loving the game of course.
No comparison between storm and njx regarding skill and soccer iq. Storm wins hands down. Just look at the delco results when njx played top teams from other states. Njx strong point is their defense and their counter attack. Defense and keeper were very suspect and there was no counter attack. They couldn't even get the ball out of their own end. Should've been a eye opening experience for Njx. If that wasn't there should be another one coming on friday on the turf
No dig at MF black, just think NJX the better team. Have big, strong athletes who will get the technical training needed going forward.I don't think either team truly cares much about this weekends results. OBVIOUSLY, both want to win but it means nothing. Their NJ Cup game had tangible consequences.EDP important to Copa, TSF, and Wildcats. They charge "Academy" type money and need to justify it to their parents with wins in the EDP league. In fact, those teams pay much more annually then the top programs when you add Club fees, winter training, "Coache$$" training sessions and all the tournament travels costs.
11:37.Yes it is nice to cheer for your daughters team, I do it all the time with fervor.But for those kids and parents that have their eye on a the bigger picture because their kid wants to play in college or just be the best technically skilled player they can be, then it may be important to see the difference.You can still cheer and say your team is the best because one team puts more goals in the net.
12:08 - 11:37 here - I agree you are right in my opinion, not may be important for those special kids IS MOST important. The 1st 12:08 - I still think MF will make one of those two teams their ECNL. But I would select MF Black for a different reason. NJX has more GS points and has more of a result history. This will be more important to the NPL team than the ECNL team, since the ECNL team will have it's own event and leagues to attend. If they have to pick one - the right move for the Club is the MF Black being the ECNL team (where the players are from - well those are going to be the players that earn a spot). Copa, TSF and NJ Wildcats can charge Academy money to play in EDL - it's a NPL league that comes close to the USSF Academy Club standards. Is it ECNL D1 for girls, NO. But it is D2.
Anything can happen between PDA NJX. Both these teams can beat each other any given day. Shows in the history between the two teams.EB tournament PDA won(turf)State cup tied PDA won in pks(grass)JAGS NJX won (turf)State cup tied PDA won in Pks(grass)State cup NJX won(grass)
It appears that not everyone has been following along... at U13, MF will have at least three teams:MFA Pre-ECNLMFA NPL MFA Black (I don't recall reading what league this team will participate in)There will no longer be MF Lady Falcons or NJX.My assumption is that after the latest tryouts, the girls were offered spots on the teams that MF believed their ability was best suited for. Maybe I'm wrong, but why would MF create a pre-ECNL team with a group of girls that they aren't necessarily committed to for ECNL at u14?
Where did all of the players from NJ Force team land for next season?
At NJ Force
Heard that NJX and Black teams will be virtually unchanged for 2014-15
How about the PDA teams? Unchanged or turnover?
Force staying together now?
You won't recognize most teams in Fall. Lots of turnover.
Ajax picking up players from rage, storm picking up at least one new, maybe more - don't know about dragons.
Force is gone
Lot's of turnover - I guess that's a good thing - I wonder if players are leaving non US Club teams for US CLub teams to play in ECNL or NPL? or are they just leaving for a better team or maybe they didn't make the cut or If entire teams moved to a US Club.Only time will tell.
If Ajax picks up the Rage's good players, Ajax should be the pre-ECNL team.
Anybody get the score of that Wildcat/Boca game?...or when the STA tryouts wil be?
The 2014/2015 season will bring an opportunity for all our girls that play for an NPL Club.MF Black is going for it this year, next year should be interesting when we talk about League Play vs Tournaments.2014 NPL Finals, July 10-14 at Bryan Park Soccer Complex in Greensboro, N.CU-13 Qualified GIRLS:1.

Wait, you can't put Wildcats 5th. They are much better than that. You need to add bonus points for being competive against good teams and leading EDP Central for 2 months. We need to boost the total points to put them ahead of all the PDA for sure.
Dear Quickstrike FC, welcome!P.S. You’re doomed.
7:58Use whatever criteria that makes you feel better.The rest of us are laughing
No one is laughing 9;55. The facts are the facts
yes, we are laughing... the suggestion to remove certain time frames from the rankings because of the change in players from fall to spring is a good argument for why the GS ranking as flawed. At this age, any ranking is such a point in time measurement. your time would be better spent worrying about your daughter's, and her team's, development.
Actually, we are laughing at you 9:55. It looks like you are the only one taking this seriously.Why would I worry about my kid's development? She's in a place that I feel good about - they teach her soccer and develop her, nothing I can do will make her develop more. So I am having fun following her club/team and measuring them against others. PS We all know GS has it's issues.This is just another way to look at something that they provide. Is it the end all - NO, we never said that, but it looks like you have your own issues. Let me worry about my kid- you worry about your own.
Looking at spring versus fall is another way of seeing the direction of teams. Looking at records and GS points does help to see this. Some teams are getting better and progressing and some are not. It may help in deciding where your daughter wants to play in the fall. Then again, once fall season starts you can throw all of this out as the teams will change gain.
Should do a top 10 GS points list this spring.
You do a great job breaking out all the GS points. The GS points in Spring is very interesting to me.Summer GS points are ridiculous. So many guest players in the summer.
Indoor GS points in winter are not meaningfull.
just heard pda brass tried to keep matchfit teams out of their own ecnl bracket at pda tourney last weekend.Then heard pda doc, new storm team coach called each current matchfit black player and offered all full ride scholarships to come to play for him on storm at pda.Evidently this tactic didn't go over well with MF DOC and there were some harh words or worse at pda tournament last weekend.
1:05On the face of it, that sounds completely plausible, but from a practical point of view, utterly hilarious and not believable, its beyond soap-opera, its bordering on Bromance...
each and every matchfit player. Wow, they must be so good!Full scholarship, replace the whole storm team.Man, Matchfit is soooo lucky to have such great players.
Moderator deleting posts unnecessarily is starting to irk me....
Please, I guess he is also responsible for Global warming too. If MF Black players were all offered free rides to PDA, there would have been takers, probably many, so considering they aren't there, your story is very weak...very weak.If players/parents are happy they are going to stay where they are, if they are not, they will leave. Simple as that. Keep them happy and they stay. Don't need to worry about anything else.
Force players are all over the place since the much anticipated demise of their coach. 2 to wildcats-1 not worthy of a place on a good town club but other is nice player i hear. few went to NJSA and maybe a few to MF- but who cares
2:13, you’re wrong, its more about who cares what you think, or write, you are a turd, and I know I am insulting all turds everywhere...
Don't stir the kitty.
GS guy, what points did you use. If you are using just Spring points - March onward - then your numbers look wrong.
There were many discussions regarding this topic last weekend. PDA coach reaching out personally to Match Fit players is TRUE. Isn't this an NCAA violation being at Rutgers? College coach reaching out to under age players?
2:13.... You are a coward. How dare you come on a anonymous blog and talk about 12 year old girls. I'll bet your daughter sucks just like you did when you got picked last at 12. But who cares! Right. Did your team ever beat Force? I doubt it. CLOWN
3:16, wrong tactic dude, never go after the player, she is innocent, lets kept this moronic banter between adult idiots...
Whats on tap for this weekend in EDP?
I used 2014 points only - removed 2013 Points.
Did the pussy really say don't stir the kitty after smearing a kid? Wow. And noone has come to an NJX game and knocked his head off yet?
I bet some MF players were contacted. Doesn't seem unreasonable since the new coach is used to contacting players as part of his other job. But what does that say about PDA development or faith in the current squad? Winning is most important no matter who or what? Is this what it's all about? More importantly, how is the new coach going to actually coach the team with a busy fall college schedule? Will the players get the quality and value their parents are paying for?
NO, how could he do both at that level in fall.
That is why he usually waits until U15 to take teams when they sit out fall for HS.Storm falling back to pack this spring and major unhappiness among families is reason for this desperation move by PDA.
Storm will always be in it.
There is a storm brewing at PDA Storm & it's not just about the sweetheart deals given to some.
has anyone heard what is going on with force new adventure JSA?
Storm will always try to recruit best players. I think many have come on this blog who have older daughters and mentioned this. This is not a secret. If you are not one if the best players in the state you won't last on the Storm. This is no surprise and is to be expected. Those on the team at U15 and further will be the best they can recruit. For the rest of the girls who don't make it or are cut there are plenty of other options that are very good options and will spawn some division 1 players. But they won't be the Storm. Get used to it.
But at U12? You don't think that's a little early to be mega competitive?
ECNL is a National league. It's job is to put the best talent on the field, it's simple.Us parents are the people pushing development and wanting them to develop our kids. That's where a bunch of us are missing it. I'll stick to New Jersey, this league was built to put the top 50 players from NJ on two teams ECNL and MF. Once you have the top 50 players their development will be accelerated because of what they bring to the table.The problem is you don't have the top 50 players on these teams now, but they will come by u15. We need to understand and accept that because the starting XI now will look different at u15. So if your kid is not in the starting XI they need to work super hard to get minutes and develop and take their skills to the next level. Some of us will learn the hard way.This is no knock on Storm or MF - They will look for the best so they can compete with the best Nationally. Nothing wrong with that. It's just not for everyone and that's okay too
Desperation move by PDA?What's a desperation move? Changing the coach? I'm still curious to see the make up of this team. How many new Players added to the roster? Did they just add or did they replace? Did the girls replaced move down to Dragons to make them stronger or did they move to another club.
Did't Storm add top quality impact players over the winter? How did that work out for them? When will coaches learn?
well put 455, that is exactly how the process works. but there is no sense whatsoever of "team unity" during this process. no relationships no loyalty at all, none, zero.
6:39 There should be no loyalty. I would hate for my daughter to not make a team because the coach is loyal to a less talented kid. I want her to know why she didn't make the team - those kids were just flat out better.Maybe I'm alone on this, but I thought you try for the big club with the hopes that other players equal to your kid's talent or better play on the team and they push each other to keep a spot and fight for minutes with each other.I would hate for my daughter to make a team pay 2k a year and then find out some talented kids didn't make the team because the coach was loyal to a girl he had since u9. I don't want my kid playing on a team with those types of relationships.I don't expect the club to be loyal to my daughter just as they shouldn't expect us to be loyal to them. If they can cut a kid - someday that kid might be my kid - There is nothing wrong with this cycle. We make it bad - and search on blogs to post as mr or ms anonymous.That's my nickle
We have talked a lot recently about the importance of state cup games vs Spring league games.Well May 31st is probably the most important league game any u12 team has played. The MF Black or Lady Falcons or what ever we want to call them are playing at home with a spot in the NE Gils NPL Post season on the line. A win will put them 2 games away from a NATIONAL event.Match Fit Academy NPL U13 vs World Class FC NPL U13Later in June PDA Storm will be at the USYSA Region1 Championships, for them in ends there win or lose since u12 doesn't go to NATIONALS.Good Luck girls with your remaining games in the 2013/2014 season.
Any one know NJX Vs. PDA score??
Different game on turf, grass plays to NJX style. especially high grass.Turf, becomes a technical game. ENOUGH SAID
Can anyone confirm that is accur4ate socre from tonight pda 2 njx 0
@801. Ur right on the money. It is what it is.
So PDA only is technical on turf....because they train on it 2-3 times per week.... ENOUGH SAID
Score does not matter.It could have been 2-0 njx.You only have to pay attention to the skill.Night and day between the two teams.At this age, it should be the only thing that matters to the parents that want their daughters to play at a high level at u15.Disregard the score.
PDA's training is second to none! Remember that. No other program compares. We may not have the athletes that NJX have but we have the better training. ENOUGH SAID.
PDA slow your roll.My point was NJX can not compete technically. Playing on high grass (NJ Cup,) no technical team will be able to move ball in those conditions.I am in your corner. Do not agree with PDA being the only program that offers top notch training. Match Fit does a very good job as well.NJX has a lot of catching up to do technically.
Makes you wonder if these grass-field teams intentionally have high grass to create a true "home-field" advantage (:
What other teams play on turf year round?
Is NJX just going to cruise into the fall off the State Cup win?
njx has some good players that can and will play in college. Parents should make sure that their team/coach concentrates on the technical skills that these very talented kids deserve.
How did PDA score 2? Game analysis. Did NJX have any opportunities?
So I guess NJX won their June 3rd game by forfeit? Or did they play this earlier? HOLMDEL FC NJX CELTIC 2 NJ FORCE ACADEMY IMPERIALS 0Both Dragons games future schedule dates were 2-0 (split) games were these forfeits as well? Plus the NJ Cup forfeits. What's up with all the forfeits if these are forfeits? This is u12 girls soccer - girls should want to play and if there is a conflict with days are you telling me a coach would rather take a forfeit win instead of working out a day that works OMG. Youth Soccer really does have major issues. I have fun talking about GS and rankings, but at the end of the day it's u12 girls soccer - should be fun for them.
Force is no longer playing. Coach blew up a good team. Very sad. Heard half team wen to NJSA and other half went to Wildcats. MFC did not take any girls or the coach
9:06, why do you keep referencing (girls), in girls soccer? Its demeaning, and gives the impression that their soccer is not as serious or important as the boys side, its both. I don’t know about your experiences, but m daughters team can compete with any u12 boys team, actually they have better soccer IQ. So please. no more its inly girls soccer BS. Thanks!
and you better not get on me for misspellings, and grammar, okay?
The score does not matter. Even if it was 2-0. the other way.It would not matter.It is about the process in which the game is played for these great young athletes.This what the NJX parents should be concerned about.Forget about the goals they are meaningless, The game was meaningless. The only question parents should be asking is " Am I happy with the technical qualities that I saw exhibited during the game.
9:50 no worries i'm the king of fat fingers and grammar errors, 9:06 here.I refer to it as girl's soccer because that's what it is. I don't have a boy and can't speak for youth soccer on the boy's side. Do you want to talk about MLS vs NWSL? Why does the NWSL pay some players 6k. Because PARENTS who have kids playing the game don't support the game. If we don't get to a SKY Blue game we use Youtube to catch a game. Maybe you do - but Most couldn't give a rats ass. SO girls soccer will always be second rate to the boys game and that's a shame. Growing up I couldn't care about the girls game. But now I have a daughter who loves playing the game and has very few outlets to advance her game. Yes we have WPSL and W-League before NWSL, but I think you know what I'm talking about. AND YES I'M A PLAYED A BIG PART FOR IGNORING THE GAME. SO I try and make up for it now, go to games buy gear doing my part with the hopes that the GIRLS game grows beyond u12 soccer.
So if the force team is no longer playing why didn't both PDA teams report the forfeits yet?
You really think your "daughters team can compete with any u12 boys team, actually they have better soccer IQ"?I'm assuming your kid plays high level - no disrespect but I would take a boys Academy team any day over any girls team at the same level. If you think Girls can compete with boys at the same level. Well then I have nothing else to say.
10:08, so shut-up.
and do me a favor, set up a game against the Cedar Stars, we’ll play in your front yard, and your wife and be the ref, sound good? Yes, great!
What are you a tough guy? I'm not from Jersey kid.
So guys from Jersey aren’t tough, hahaha??
Not sure we danced a lot growing up with kids from jersey in the city - I'm sure there are tough guys in Jersey we didn't come across - maybe you are one of them?But someone running their mouth under an anonymous tag doesn't strike me as a tough guy. We can continue this and annoy the other 3 people posting on this board or we can drop it and move onto to soccer - I'm game either way.
You’re right, no need to be uncivil, enjoy your day!
You tooHope your kid's team has a good day today if they are playing. Enjoy
There is no comparison between u12 girls and u-12 boys. Number of skilled boys to girls teams is probably 6-1 ratio at least.Whoever posted that nonsense hasn't seen a good boys team if that's actually what they believe.Oh and heard through a cousin who is friends with a brother of one of the njx parents and apparently all the njx girls had a trampoline competition on Thursday night and gym class on Friday so they we're sluggish.
10:56PM How can you say MF trains very well. How do you explain the Jaguars? Same coach as Falcons.
Several horrendous efforts by njx in the last few weeks. The wheels have fallen off and there is blood in the water. Pda coach has contacted several Njx players parents offering free rides as well. Sure is a lot of free rides being offered by pda.
No surprise Storm beats NJX on turf. And no surprise when NJX beats Storm on grass. That is what they train on. Both are talented teams with talented players. NJX needs to work more on turf to use their talented mid fielders more. PDA needs stronger players to play on grass. Sounds like they picked a couple up.
12:15 this Coach is an excellent Coach. Reason why PDA tried to get him this spring. For Jaguars, first many girls are injured while moving in girls that are playing 11v11 for the first time, which are practice players that just joined the team. This is developmental team, coach did not stray from moving kids around. Trying to teach how to become more all around players. I bet you will have a different view next year about this team. Why do you think those Falcons girls can play anywhere, he did this with them as well. To me that is development.
Unless you’re playing on 4" high grass, there should be NO difference in quality of play. The passes still need to be sharp, the press still needs to be there, and the will to win, that doesn’t change because of the playing surface. A good team can play both.
It is not about turf or grass, it is about the condition of the fields. a pristine field will act as a conductor of their game. Small bumpy grass fields are more of a hindrance to their style of play.Cleaner touches, faster movement of the ball and better passing on the ground.This would be true on turf or pristine grass fields.Girls at this age are still not good enough technically to be able to adjust their technical game on a bumpy grass field. Good direct teams like NJX and Wildcats can even the odds and use their best asset, which is athleticism, to beat young technical teams on fields that are not conducive to the ground game.As these technical teams get older and their skills become more refined, It will make no difference between bumpy grass and turf.
Of course high grass makes a difference. Get a clue
Dear Clueless Groupie,It does not matter, they both have to play on the same field, stop making excuses, and win the damn game...
Even Tuckahoe farms was not the (P) word you mention, it really is far and few between...
Cross Farms grass is always high and thick.
to 1:21That's Mr. DOC to you.LOL.Technical skills, Its the only reason you should be training with a team.Good Luck to your daughter.I now leave you to your own knowledge of the game.
Seems like PDA sees some talent that certain teams aren't using that they want.
You can have all the ability in the world. If they dont have the love for the game or the heart to compete, then good luck with that
High Grass- You play more direct, over the top. GRass- you play normal styleTurf- you play normal style, short passing
only looking for bench players to add depth. new coach realized this from the get go. none of the new players, & there's just a few (2 for sure as of now), coming will start nor see meaningful playing time. they will be part of the rotation & might not even be first set going in games. thats understood, hopefully, but these players do get superior training & a huge discounted fee otherwise they wouldn't come. the players being pushed out were leaving anyway so no worry there.
Look people...PDA Storm is the #1 team, no argument..All the good players will flock to the North PDA program eventually, if your child wants to play D1 they have to be good enough to make that team in NJ. If you really want to see how good your child is, bring them to the PDA North try outs.
12yr old girls & people are using terminology like "D1". Add that to the list of buzzwords that money grabbing coaches & trainers are using nowadays.
Let's be serious people...Do the storm players play other sports throughout the year? And how many days a week do they train?
Well most of the ECNL players go "D1"
they're not going "D1" without the grades & believe it or not, players can go "D1" playing plain ole travel soccer & high school.
6:18Absolutely correct. They will get a academic scholarship before athletic and then make the team.
Son't know what world your living in storm parent but new storm players aren't coming to sit on bench.they plan to start just as 3 nw players who came in mid year this past jan.
Sorry PDA not #1 team at this age. Until this team beats Black team. I will continue to lean toward MF.
Best players will always play going forwrard.Girls will compete and the coach will play the best players.
I guess the biggest game of the year didn't. Go so well or we would have heard something by now.
What game would that be?
Funny how it seems everyone is too lazy to just check websites for scores:5:30 pm Match Fit Academy NPL U13 4-1 World Class FC NPL U13From the NPL website
4:09At least one of the "new 2" for STORM will be getting significant time. This is ability based.
Congrats to Match Fit Black. This is a very big accomplishment for a U12 team to make U13 NPL Finals.I would take a season long accomplishment over winning State Cup or NJ Cup. We all know state cups first round games are gimme's.
oops guess strong again. Good luck going forwardto matchfit black, credit where credit is due
I agree, this will be first time I will congratulate a team on this blog. Match Fit Black good luck moving forward.
Neither o 2 new storm players will crack lineup.The starters in place are better by far. Only reason those new players were added ws to refill roster.
Look like parents living up to their reputation and season hasn't even stated.
Each season should start fresh to a degree. Yes certain players should hold their spots, to not be replaced is another question. New players should push starters. Lets see who cracks.Is it true PDA took 22 players?
Props to MF Black, and congrats, but what does that say about the U13 WC team? 4-1 sounds like a strong game for MF??

we shall see i guess, players were added ONLY to fill roster & also take away from teams that are a threat (like maybe the team that you came from) NOT for need. players from town travel teams no matter how good need not apply, they aren't a threat in the least bit. trust me on this point. good luck though.
8:59 very wise indeed.
8:34 where did that come from? All I've been reading is 2 new players. What was the Storm Roster before tryouts? 20?
Based on storm performance maybe they should add some fresh legs. Not like they are rolling other top teams with the current group.
When the players are good enough for any team, they will take a starters spot.Especially at a club like pda.Sometimes politics get in the way, especially in the early age groups, but in the end, the best 11 will be on the field when ECNL begins. Too much at stake for these clubs.
They rolled someone up Friday night
No scores posted from Friday Night.My question is How did NJX get a win for a June 3rd game against NJ Force when NJ Force is now NJSA 04 GALAXY? Please don't tell me they took a forfeit win instead of trying to work out a date to play this team.
@228.....Are you being serious? What is your logic in NJSA 04 Galaxy replacing Force to play rest of EDP season? 2 different teams - read earlier posts, the Force team split to couple of teams. Makes no sense what you are suggesting, none.
Nj Force is gone. All games are a forfeit
3:02 Click on NJ Force and you will see team name is NJSA Galaxy. Are you telling me it makes more sense to forfeit games at u12 when there is nothing on the line?
NJSA is like the land of misfit toys. All parents running from other clubs. Every girl must play the whole game or they will leave. Lol
I believe the NJSA Galaxy takes all the points from the Force because 60% of team went to NJSA
Getting points is one thing, playing out EDP season is another. EDP would never allow Galaxy to take over remaining games, that makes no sense.
Todays result from pda south.Wildcats 2 PDA Ajax 0game played at PDA on huge football field with extremely short cut grass.See post 12:47 from may 31st.Guess you were mistaken about huge impact of field conditions .
Go Wildcats. Best team ever. We are number one!,
Storm new players. What teams are they coming from?
I agree EDP would never allow another team to play for a team. Force coach should be banned from EDP in future. Not fair to other parents and players on teams. People pay good money to play 7 league games. I don't blame the club for the actions of a crazy coach
Congrats to Match Fit making the NE Girls NPL Playoffs for a shot at the NPL Finals. fyi - teams, 1, 2, & 3 have almost 20 points more than MF, so them making the NPL finals will be huge. But they still can't do well in EDP against their own Age 1 win in 4 games, not so good. DO you really think this is one of the top teams in NJ?CONNECTICUT FC WEST ORANGE 3 MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC BLACK (LADY FALCONS) 2Also NJ Wildcats how can you want to play the best when you won't let teams below you play you. They forfeited their U12 Girls 11v11 Consolation game. What's with NJ and all the forfeits - teams playing in to many events/leagues.Right teams pick a league so they can play the amount of games they paid for - Yup lots of development in a forfeit win.I'm sorry no respect for that. We are paying a ton of money for our kids to play and because other teams can't manage their rosters or choose to play with less players and can't handle injuries. RESULTS don't matter unless you are playing for a State, Regional or National title!!!.
@434.....Re: NJ Wildcats get your facts straight next time please. Not worth elaborating to such utter nonsense.
Storm up to over 20 players on roster for fall season.should be fun to manage those expectations.
22 to be exact but whose counting?
4:40 from the new jersey cup websiteGame DetailsDate/Time: TBALocation: TBAWinner: RYSA Wildcats GreenForfeit
CFC Orange West is a very good team, no excuses, a loss is a loss, but sometimes you gotta tip your hat, or is no one allowed to win but you??U12 soccer people, win some, lose some, but are they improving, if so, then it's all good..,
Congrats to wildcats , you finally beat Ajax.I dont think it's the same as playing storm on turf though.but nice win.NJX vs Wildcats should be a good physical game.My money is on NJX 3-1.
Correction: Wildcats 2nd win over ajax this year.Cats had 1-0 win at Spirit Kickoff.
Ajax not on par with Wildcats. Nice 2-0 to bookend 2-0 over Storm.
Keep on betting against us.If you had really been putting your money where your mouth is with all your picks against us this year you would be broke and hungry by now.
Njx does not win another game. Look terrible since us cup
6:16,Different posterYour team is just not that good.But you do win games "by hitting that hole"
5:35You must be a newbie, first welcome. Second, try to be factual. This was covered already, neither team was able to agree on date due to tournament & league play plus the home team was unable to secure a field. Hence both teams opted simply not to play the game. This was covered & is now old news. Nice try though at trying to stir the pot.
No they are very good. Out of stater telling you they are as good as anyone in your state at this time. Can I get in on the action?
6:47 must have missed that. SO I guess they flipped a coin to see who advanced since this was a knockout event. Look what was discussed or what wasn't discussed doesn't change the fact that it was a forfeit.Just like the NJX vs NJ Force was a forfeit - then JAGS had a couple of 2-0 hames listed (my guess was forfeit) - My point is simple and has nothing to directly with the NJ Wildcats - it has to do with NJ (New Jersey) soccer and all the forfeits at u12.SO you think this is acceptable? How is this stirring a pot? The world doesn't revolve around your team. My posts are about Forfeits in general at u12 and YES your team did forfeit a game so the other team can advance agreed or not it's still a forfeit. Since you are familiar with the situation how was it determined which team advanced? I am not and don't remember seeing the post.Just for the record - i have posted many stats that supported the Wildcats (no newbie here), just seems like you don't like what I'm posting now.
Why hasn't Storm and Ajax posted the 2-0 forfeit wins yet? or are they actually trying to set up a game with NJSA Galaxy aka NJ Force 2013 Spring?
They play pretty fair D as well.Swept PDA teams this spring with both games shutouts. Neither team had barely a sniff at Cats goal.
PDA NPL U13 45 pointsFC Stars of Mass NPL U1342 pointsConnecticut FC NPL U13 41pointsMatch Fit Academy NPL U12 29 points FC Stars vs CFC game will decide who MF plays in the post season. If FC Stars wins they play MF and PDA plays CFC, If FC Stars doesn't win then PDA plays MF and FC Stars and CFC play each other.
you confuse wins with being a good team wildcats.team is taking lots of shortcuts
you absolutely are trying to stir the pot & you are so off base. read back, maybe a month ago. someone thought they had breaking news that wildcats lost 2-0 in nj cup consolation rounds. it was clearly explained then. re: njx-force forfeit, njx had absolutely nothing to do with that. the force team no longer exists, therefore they are forfeiting rest of their games. enjoy rest of your sunday sir.
First goal scored today was off a long ball & second off a long run by ONE player. Were you able to connect on 3 passes? Please answer that honestly, at any point in the game today did you connect on 3 passes?
ajax only 1 shot on goal all game well saved by cats keeper..cats scored on half volley from just inside penalty area and one short shot off passing combination just outside of box that sprung player behind defense for finish.Both shots buried, keeper no chance on either. Neither goal was off long pass or long run.What game were you watching.You were soundly beaten today.Wildcats had a number of dangerous crosses and chances.
don't believe ajax had possession of ball in wildcats penalty area even once all game.wildcats had ball in ajax box a number of other times and just couldn't get off clean shots.Wildcats had 4 corner kicks ajax I believe had 1.
7:45 True- ajax 1 shot on goal was struck well but from outside of penalty area.Shot was punched wide on good play by keeper. Both wildcats goals were on shots taken from well inside of penalty area.Neither team had any breakaways in game.
2 different players scored for wildcats, both midfielders.
Wildcat parents are quite delusional and have very selective memory on game recall...not to mention probably the most obnoxious parents in NJ U12 girls soccer. That will be the next team to split up.
I'd rather win 2-0 connecting ZERO passes (although that was not the case in game today) vs. connect passes all over the place but lose 2-0. What say you 7:25??
Hey Papa Ajax take your beat down and zip it up. You only sound like a bigger schmo than you actually are.
Wah wah my daughter's team got smoked so I'll rag on the other team's parents. Who cares? They're not playing. What about the game?
pda = perpetual deliverer of ahem/excuses. when they lose they try and draw attention away from what happened on the field by attacking opponents style of play, opposing parents, field conditions, etc.If you pass so well and are so good technically why can't you score any goals, break down wildcats defense, or even get off any decent shots against them?After all, todays game was on your big field with your pristine, short cut pda grass.
Are they any nj teams doing super y this summer
Not from Ajax, but you sure are supporting my earlier statement.
