...tryout season? Your parents are the ones always complaining about your club on here.
This will be the wildest tryout season by far. Beside PDA and Match Fit. What other NJ club will get stronger because of the change? This change may actually change the fortunes for some PA clubs like FC Bucks and Continental.
Good luck, PL parent. Take what you can from the experience and we will see you guys soon.Dont let the loudmouths get ya down
Yes all the best Jan- July 01 and 02 in PA, DE and even NJ will try their luck in the PA ECNL tryouts this year. Penn Fusion will be the top choice. Their u13, 14 and 15 coaches are the best. Can't go wrong. No I am not worried about someone taking my child's place. Looking forward to improving to be a real contender for 02 champions league title. PL dad bring your kid is she an 01 or 02?
The best players will go to Pda . They always do .
Obi-Wan Kanobi is that you?
Yes because look at how happy and satisfying the experience is for those who bought that line and went to PDA Storm. You couldn't find a happier, more well adjusted group of young players and parents then you have on that Storm sideline right now. We are all just having a great family time together while watching our daughter gain confidence and game expereience as a player and enjoy her youth soccer expereince while growing as a well adjusted young lady.
That's what it's all about 8:29. Confident, well adjusted and talented girls.
I think somebody missed the sarcasm
^^ No we didn't ^^
So much disfunction at this age group at PDA.Seems like a great place to spend ones youth experience.I have heard that the majority of parents and kids are miserable but they stay.
PL-3 1776-0. Same old 1776. Guess the changes and additions haven't changed much.
I'm a bit surprised 1776 allowed 3 goals. Even when they lose its usually 1-0 or 2-1. Were there defensive or goalkeeper break downs?
10:02 she is one of seven 01's on PL. There is a lot of big talented 02's on this team, the team that gets that majority will become stronger immediately. We have Pipeline tomorrow and then the season is done, the fall season seems to go so quick. Hope you guys have enjoyed it.PL Parent
Not sure why that team stays in tact. They never do much of anything. Will always be a decent team, never a top one.
1:36 They do have a good keeper that only gave up one rebound and PL girl followed it up and put it in. Sheer volume of shots caught up with them today. I am one of the ones on this blog that always thought 1776 is a solid F1 team, but they just don't seem to control the ball enough to work their offense. Their coach lectured them pretty good after the game to stop talking about how good you are if you can't win the big games. It was an impressive speech from a good coach. Word is they are going to stay together regardless of the birth year changes. Will many teams actually do that?? PL Parent
Hey 12:23, where would you suggest the players that are unhappy go? My team would love to have them but why would they leave a top team and club? Can't they go to the other teams in the club? If what is written on here is true then their other teams are top teams in NJ as well.
My guess is that there are 11 happy players and the rest unhappy. Sounds like every team.
Time to start setting time aside on Nov 14th an 15th to watch PAGS playoffs and its four top teams go at it. Watch as YMS comes out of 4th place to take it all. Go Banshee's!!!!
4:02. - thanks for the laugh
I will clear my calendar now so that I may witness that high level competition.
I thought YMS was at Bethesda that weekend?
You think Bethesda matters when PAGS playoffs and a possible league championship is at stake? The two teams that would be F1 at Bethesda is in the PAGS playoffs anyway. Not to mention the DISCOVERY CUP CHAMPION.
4:37 you just fulfilled my entertainment needs for the night. Thank you.
3:42There aren't any teams that rotate starters?I have to believe this is untrue
Is this rec soccer?
Seems full of it today doesn't it?
Not at PAGS playoffs they dont rotate starters. Those games are for serious teams only.
Have to earn your minutes at PAGS. Only the top players that have worked hard on their skills play. This is why its such a strong league.
3:42 And 7:04PDA Storm is a mess right now- period.Leave it at that
No details no one believes you. Just a pot stirrer.
Of course 8:29 was being facetious.
So....which club does the "PDA is a mess" poster represent?If it is Match Fit that would be truly sad. Your teams make each other better. There should be mutual respect.
I wouldn't think it's a MF parent. Seems there's been less bashing between the two than in the past. Both teams are evenly matched, ECNL and NPL.
It's the mf parent that has nothing but time on his hands, that bashes slick. Mf knows who it is.
It's a GFA parent bashing slick. I know who SHE is.
Slick has left a trail of burning bridges everywhere he left.Better hope he never needs a contact or referral for his DD if he ever leaves PDA.Like everyone else she is just a knee injury away from no longer being the"It' Girl.Then you meet all those you messed over on the way up as you slide back down.
Shuuuuuut up already you jealous fools!
PL over Pipeline 6-0
Weather looking good for Besthesda! Should be a great weekend all around.
Pipeline is the next best thing to a rec team.
How do you know it's not the Match Fit coaches themselves? You should hear all the bashing they have done and still do. They are more jealous than the parents.
When did the EDP league be some such a joke? Not much different that JAGS, PAGS, or WAGS league.
What were the results from the weekend games?
NJCSA State Cup Champs!! Congratulations!!
4:25 Can you point out a league that does not have a bottom four teams that are totally below the level of the top four? I think most of the EDP league games were competitive this fall, with all teams having a shot at winning their respective games. Even the mighty ECNL league has its bottom dwellers that the top teams feast upon. Yes the ECNL league has the strongest teams at the top, but don't try to sell those bottom four.
Pl parent. Your team is way too good for this division. Look at goals for and goals against That is a compliment. We played you few weeks ago. Nice group not dirty great parents. I am not sure where you go from here. On the other note we have played some rough and dirty teams, even worse than that is the referees. They are abysmal, don't know the rules and they do not keep our daughters safe. They are arrogant and all over the place. Inconsistent and cannot control 13 year old girls. I am not sure what can be done or what complaint process is for this. From tournaments to d1 league action. That is how we solve your issue with pipeline or any other team. There are 3 refs making $150. They just suck. I would be fair and say 50/50 good versus bad. My wife and mother understands more than some of these guys or gals. And I have a tremendous amount of general respect but this fall season has been just awful. I know most agree I sit next to you and we all complain week after week.
A team like FC Bucks and CFC would be somewhere in the top half of EDP league.
Why is it so difficult for the NY ecnl teams to post their scores? Anyone have any updates on those games?
MF parent here - The subject of PDA practically never comes up... And when it does it's with respect... Stop trying to stir up trouble when there is none.
Your way to MF.
PDA Storm is a disaster! Why don't you stop trying to hide the tragic comedy that is going on with Storm right now.
For us who don't know what you are talking about please enlighten us if this disaster.
I think 7:20 is what is known as a "pot stirrer".
Have a ton of respect for PDA and know quite a few kids/parents who have played there. My kid is at MFA because of where we live and the fact that she loves it there. I am different than the previous MFA poster. Can't be sure, but I'd be surprised if anyone at MFA was posting this nonsense.
Of course it is someone outside of MF and PDA. Putting down these programs to prop up their own kids club.
Agree another MF parent here. I know of a lot of parents on our sideline who know parents at pda. They get along because the girls are good friends, my daughter being one. Even though they no longer play together a lot of respect and friendship between the two. Pot stirrers can come on here and post what they want but that's the reality.
5:38 Its funny that you mentioned the referee situation, because you are right on the money with that one. The ref today lost total control of a 13U girls game, and to the point that everyone was just waiting for the injury to happen. I know in PA that there is a referee issue with there being to few available due to girls soccer being moved to the fall. Especially with school ball playoffs being played on weekends. So there are fewer good refs to be had. Not sure if its like this in NJ, NY, or MD. Good luck the rest of the way and at Bethesda if your heading there.
9:28 Gin Blossoms..."Hey Jealousy". Did sports not pan out for you growing up and you're daughter is now falling short of "your" dreams? She'll be a star in high school next year for you don't you worry..
5:38 Your mother and your wife know more? Must be some really bad refs. 5:39 FC Bucks wouldn't place in the top four if they were in PAGS. YMS is in fourth place and neither CFC or FC Bucks would beat them out. When trying to defend your league (which you didn't have to). I would never bring those two team up.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say fc bucks ecnl does not even win a game at bethesda. As well as cfc ecnl does not win a game.
I think the whole point of why those 2 teams were used is because they are the only 2 who appear to be "out of their league" yet in another league they wouldn't look so bad. I'd agree thats probably very true actually.
Bet you're wrong.
10:12 Why would anyone who's kid plays ecnl have to defend it? It's hands down the best most competitive league there is available to girls. The training and competition a player receives is unsurpassed. You're always going to have the worst of the best. Always.
You can add in those two team listed in front of CFC also. Whether you want to admit it or not, CFC and FC Bucks have no offense to challenge anyone. FC Bucks players still aren't sure where the midfield line is at because they never cross over it. Do those teams even use the term "striker" or "attacking mid"? Or are all the players considers left and right defensive backs?
Yes they are 2 of the worst, in the best league there is. Watching their GF at Bethesda will be interesting. Can they score outside their league?
Well I guess the theory of playing in a better league and playing against better players is going to make you better will be put to the test for the clubs at bethesda. I don't know what club your speaking of when you say the training is unsurpassed. Maybe pda?
So 10:37. What are the benefits of all that great training for the FC bucks CFC strikers and attacking mids when Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny are seen more. From Penn Fusion on up, the ECNL league is much better. The product below that is F2 to F3 material in any tournament, same as lower pags and edp teams.
Bethesda will tell a lot. If they still can't score there then yes that's sad but is it easy to score in a league against PF, PDA, or MF? No.
Great Job NJCSA Elite Congrats
3 team brackets are not fair. Traditionally, teams that have to play a second game against a team that is rested and playing their first game do not fair well. Look at some previous results come of teams who have had to do this. Winning percentage is very low. Can't understand why major tournaments do this. And to boot, the hosting team never seems to be the one that has to do this.
That's what you have to complain about? How about having to play a final at 2pm on Sunday, and 5-7 hours driving home....
At Spirit, Boston Breakers played at 9 am and then not until almost 5 and went to the finals. South Shore was 8 am and 3:30 and won it. Were the wins in their second games as impressive? No.. but they still managed to get the medals.
Spirit had the 3 team format and in the top 2 brackets,teams in this situation went 1 w, 6 l,and 1 tie.
Really 7:48? I'm not 7:29 but cmon bro. This is what you signed up for. Go back to rec..
How about being in the car for 6 hours on a Saturday to play one game. Isn't that what most of our kids on this blog do several weekends a season? Be happy if you make the finals.
You are correct t 8:24 but neither one of those 2 teams were in the situation I was writing about.
You can't compare nj soccer and mass soccer. There is no comparison. Mass dominates every nj team and are extremely more technical than nj teams including the nj super 2 pda and mf
Technical? We have played both NEFC and SSS and neither was that technical, they are big and fast and use their bodies very well to shield and press.
I don't think its just NJ that Mass has been superior to. Our PA teams have also come away with a loss when facing them. How do well do they do against FCV and Match Fit? Is their dominance a result of having the best coaches? Or a more condensed area of players to choose from?PL Parent
10:25 Well isn't that much like Collegiate soccer games this day, If you have been watching lately I don't see many technically skilled players at the collegiate level it seems the ratio is more athletes(w/ some technical) vs. non-athletes ( more technical).
Yes it is true especially in nj. Take mf for example size and speed but not much skill. If you played south Shore and nefc, I don't even have to ask the result. Same thing if you played breakers. Problem with nj parents is they are not realists. Nj soccer is you run people over until you wear the other team down
Its funny you say that, I have taken the time to see some of these teams play this year and I have seen a lot of the same type of soccer with Mass teams as well as NJ teams.I am taking my daughter to another team after this year and wanted to do the rounds for style of play. and coachingSoccer Nut
You havent seen them all, I gather, S NutHow many, in number, are you considering?Does your daughter play HS?
Soccer NutI general, why are you leaving your current team?
Anyone else changing teams next fall (or dare I say this spring) - same question -what are some of the reasons to seek the change - and how are you determining where you will go?Thanks
The year change is causing us to look for another coach. You are correct, I have not seen them all but we have seen a few of the top Mass teams play NJ teams recently and more or less it's the same.Soccer Nut
College soccer is about winning - a coach can get fired if they don't win. Do you really want them to develop players technically? That falls on the Clubs -problem is the Colleges don't want a player that can move a ball around quickly because 80% of team can't play that way. Colleges an Clubs want big fast "me" girls so they can move onto colleges and leave it up to these boards for the parents of the girls that don't fit that style to battle it out.At the end of the day all they want is our money to supplement their wallets.Do you really want me to believe it takes a club 36K to run a team when it takes a local town team $200. That my friends is greed and we all are the reason for it.Can't blame the clubs they cut the players they don't want because they know the have us willing to pay.
There are so many considerations to take into account when changing teams that we are indeed taking our time to develop a short list. The rest will be up to my daughter and her playSoccer Nut
NoSome colleges DON'T want a player who can "move the balla round", if that player cannot also RUN, TACKLE, COMPETE.If your techincal Sally is soft or lacks speed/desire, better not to whine but to get in her head the changes she needs to make.
Kind of a broad brush 12:15, but most of it very true for some clubs. But clubs do not cut players anymore, due to the fact that there are now "B" teams and even "C" teams. And these teams are the easiest money makers of all. When you have a top "A" team, some of the players parents are getting discounts so they will stay. They number of pain in the ass emails and phone calls to coaches and club officials triples in numbers from "A" team parents. Because this group demands more and if want their daughter, they better get it. Now the "B" team parents hardly ever call or email, they are generally a happy group. All shaking their heads in unison over what great training their kids are getting and looking forward to the prospect of moving up to the "A" team next year. And you know what? Once every three years it does happen when players from the outside club doesn't come in and take that spot.As far as "C" teams parents. They just realize that spending this money keeps Susie happy and its worth it. Plus they can say their daughter is one a premier team. Clubs make a lot of easy money off of those "B" and "C" teams. But the "A" are needed for the draw. Yes it is a business. But we know that and still love it.
11:08 your comment is far from the truth. What make you say this? No technical?MF players are very technical, One player is especially special to watch. I have seen a few PDA and MF games this year. Both very good teams
I do have one question, I am hearing that ECNL team has 7 Players from North (Pre ECNL) that start with only 4 from South (NJX). Goes to show the North team for year heard how NPL team was the better team. Sure does not look this way now does it?
I watched A&M vs Fl yesterday. Best player on field was a small skilled player. She was flanked with big fast powerful forwards though..
12:27 this has nothing to do with any sally? Are you saying the college game is how soccer should be played? I am saying that's all you have is "ME" players than can RUN, TACKLE, COMPETE, DRIBBLE and my favorite the send it LONG ball or as you like to call it the direct ball.So what did I say wrong? That makes you think my kid is a push over? I'm sure she has knocked your kid the turff a few times. My Sally plays like a Sal.
12:47I have seen both PDA and match fit play and the truth is that some of the players on these teams have very good skill> i would say about a third. Some have a good 1st touch but below average skill. and about 1/2 the players have below average skill but make it up with speed and tenacity. And Some try to play with brut strengthWhen you see the team(s) as a whole, it is pretty easy to tell the difference between the 3 qualities.Soccer Nut
Dead on 2:08. many of you are buying a pig in a poke from your clubs about the "right way" to play and "the only way to play". College coaches care only about winning to keep their jobs.If you saw the MAAC semifinal between Monmouth and Siena Friday night you saw how rough and physical D1 soccer is at the college level.
Perhaps you should watch a higher level.The UVA game looked less physical and so did the Penn Rutgers game.
Time for some GS love. There are no leagues that love their teams more than the EDP and NYCSL they have learned how to manipulate the GS system to make sure their teams are tops regionally and nationally.STA - 12,269 GS Points for4127 EDP 2014 Fall (3rd)1950 NYCSL NPL 2014 Fall (2nd)3994 NYCSL NPL 2015 Spring (1st)2198 NYCSL NPL 2015 Fall (2nd)NJ Wildcats NPL - 14,4905713 EDP 2014 Fall (1st)3546 EDP 2015 Spring (1st)5231 EDP 2015 Fall (1st)GS 4 Life
3:23 I agree with you 100%
How many goals will FC Bucks ECNL score at Bethesda?Over/Under is 1
Fla State beat Univ of Virginia in NCAA Final last year because they were faster, bigger and stronger.UVA even changed their formation and tried to play different in the final four after losing to Fla St in regular season and still lost in championship game. How many of our 2001/2002's in region 11 honestly have a shot to be recruited and see the field for UVA? Maybe 1 or 2?. Programs like UVA recruit nationally and get their pick of the very best from national pools in USA and internationally as well.As stated you are selling a pig in a poke to unrealistic parents and theirn kids and taking advantage of them.
1776 now #1 ranked team in PA. Gotta love Got Soccer.
17 of the 29 UVA players are from NY, NJ, MD, PA or VA
Well 5:09Luclily my kid happens to be one of them.You do what is best for your kid and Ill do what is best for mine!
Will get a good look at 1776 this weekend. May report back - if you behave
and if you actually believe 1776 is the best U14 team in PA you are very naive. Those PA GS standings are laughable.
12:51NJX if I recall had just one back of quality.The middie/forwards they sent to ECNL team are likely interchangeable with the players they sub in for.But ECNL was the better team last year, yes
5:52Thats not behaving....
1776 has to be the best PA team. There listed as the #1 ranked team in PA and they will be that until spring. Their ability to place as F1 in tournaments and get to the finals in Discovery and only losing once in EDP has proven they are a good team. They have only lost two games since the start of the fall season. On another note. If PAGS wasn't a joke before, it is now for sure. Both Classics and YMS have pulled out of the PAGS playoff in order to play at Bethesda. I don't fault PAE or YMS for doing so, as it was a smart thing to do for both teams. But PAGS officials in their infinite wisdom, have moved up the 5th and 6th place teams to take their place in their playoffs. Their is a possibility that even FC Bucks could score a goal (just one)on these teams, so why would you even think about making them playoff worthy?
1776 was in a weak league in EDP and they did not play hard teams in Discovery Cup. They will need to impress at better competitive tournaments and leagues to say they are the best in Pa. Sorry IMO
Weak EDP league, weak Discovery tournament and haven't beat any top teams this year. They are not even top 3.
Why is NJ Rush Hamilton playing EDP-NPL and not NJ Rush 01 Blue? 01 Blue much better team. Who can explain this? Seems idiotic to me not play the better team in NPL.
5:40 sounds about right 17 of 29 on roster correct. That is just over half from region 1. Now how many of 29 players are region 1 kids that are walk ons and practice players and how many got $$$ and start? Also remember that is a group drawn from 5 graduating classes of hs players, as I said 2 maybe 3 get recruited from region 1 each class. And almost half are from outside region 1 or international players.
Just checked stats and 5 of 11 players who started regularly for UVA are from outside Region 1. 2 are from cal, 1 texas, 1 florida, 1 georgia. And that is a state school with significant discounts for tuition for instate residents which makes it easier to recruit the top players from Va.Check the numbers from private schools who are top soccer programs and you will find even more of a national and even international flavor to their rosters.
Soccer Nut, do you think that way about both MF and PDA equally. Not how I would describe one of those teams bottom 3rd.
1776 hasn't beaten a good team since BRYC in the spring. They didn't beat a good team at Spirit, didn't beat a good team at Discovery and didn't beat a good team in EDP. They have loaded up on points by beating F2 level teams. O
But you have to agree that they are better than almost all PA teams. Plus, which is the last NJ or MD team to beat them?
Well, Crush beat 1776 the last time they played them- at delco in May.
Thanks gs 4 life
8;36Certainly not equally but there are enough low skilled players on both teams . Skill is not something you acquire at team practice despite what many may think. Skill requires that extra effort outside of practice.It is easy to see who does the extra work on all these teams.Soccer Nut

Soccer Nut,Just curious, have you come to any NYSC games this past season, if so, can you give me your opinion of the team, both tactically and technically.Thanks!
Here are 1776's results against what would be considered good teams since Aug 1stBRYC - 1-3 Calvert - 1-1, 2-0 PDA Ajax - 1-1 McClean ECNL - 3-0HMMS - 2-2 Penn United - 0-1 Penn Legacy - 0-3 2 wins3 losses3 ties
1776 three losses are against F1 teams. Shows that they do no lose to teams lesser than them, thats the make up of a championship caliber team.
1776 guy, why are you trying to convince people that your team is credible? Most of the morons on this board only bash, they can’t see past your record, or who you have played against. You are wasting your life typing anything positive. Be happy with your kids team, be happy about your child’s success, and please be happy in general, life is too short to be anything else. Cheers!
Give me a break people 1776, PL and talking about rankings again they are a product of the EDP league feeding points for the Fall season. Come the league awarded GS points for being last place in that division. This falsifies these teams as when they enter tournaments like Bethesda this weekend either will make it to the final due to GS rankings. Sorry but I have a problem with a league that awards points to teams for just joining it feels like U8 a participation tournament. On to of that they will get points for both Fall and this upcoming Spring. I will give 1776 and PL there dues as they play good soccer and have good team chemistry v all the ECNL teams in PA.
NJ Rush 01 Blue doesn't play a lot of tournaments. I don't know why though. 1776 played 7 tournaments in last 12 months they should have more got soccer points. Common sense. That doesn't mean they are a better team then others. They don't play a lot of competitive teams. I hope NJ Rush doesn't pay a lot of money to play there, they don't get a lot of tournaments out of it. What is the deal there? Rip off
You do know, 10:19 that 1776 can play some pretty good soccer this weekend in MD and come away with bupkus in the points columnwhile some others can cash in points for lesser play.....Oh, OK - I thought you did,Kind of evens out with the "they get soft points for league play" line.
For anyone who is enlightened, please give me a brief breakdown of the following teams:YMSPA ClassicNJ SoundersThanks!
YMS - Athletic and BigPA Classics - Good well rounded teamNJ Sounders(REAL) - Good team within NJ realms outside No.
10:10 I agree that the EDP league was soft, evident by the 28-2 goal differential PL had. But we are at the mercy of the club and the only other choice was PAGS. Our team is a very good team, but have not shown the mental edge it takes to beat teams like SS, BB and NEFC. The points given in EDP are simply a bonus to a team hoping to find some good competition. I posted on here over a month ago that this league would offer very little competition and that has come true. Now we find out that our club didn't have us play against three teams that are PA carded this fall and so we can't play in State Cup action (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). But is shows the level of concern for the team. Enjoy Bethesda guys, I think both 1776 and PAE will go 1-1-1 and make a decent showing.PL Parent
Thanks 10:44, thought as much.
Can one of the teams that played in the New Jersey State Cup final 4 please give me the game scores and a little insight on how the teams played. It amazes me that the big contributors to this blog, like GS for life , PL parent and yes you,soccer Nut can go on and on 4 days about your team and your kids and style of play and not one of you can congratulate or even acknowledge that there was a State Cup. That's just embarrassing to me and shows me your true colors. I think two people congratulated the teams and you idiot just blow it off like it's irrelevant. I'll go as far as say I hope you don't come to my kids team, like she can just walk on to any team you choose, good luck with that at this point. Congratulations to the final four teams!!!
OOOOOHHH - sounds like a bookkeeping error by LegacyHave to ensure qualification for SC. Who the hell is PAE?
Sorry, that would be PAC. PL Parent
1025. we will see how well 1776 does at Bethesda. Hope they do well.
10:55, like I said, this is the forum for anon cheerleading, although you just did a pretty good job. Tell us which team your child plays on, and I will congratulate you, and I live in Westchester NY.
1055 It was a very weak State Cup. The competitive dropped out early or really did not bring their strong players to win. Not sure. But the final four weren't even close to the stronger teams in NJ.
!0:55 What do want us to say about the PA State Cup? PL won their version of it last year with scores ranging from 4-0 to 8-0. I think the championship game against the Ukies was 4-1. Should someone say congrats to that, or tell us we just wasted four weekends?? I not sure how competitive the NJ State Cup is, but if its better than ours, hats off the winner and may they kick ass and do much better than we did in Regionals. But thanks for grouping me in with GS 4 Life and the Soccer Nut (their soccer knowledge is quite more extensive than mine). That was actually a better compliment than a congrats for State Cup. PL Parent
1115 The NJ State Cup champions will get their asses kicked at nationals. Sorry. Just an average team, far from a championship team. We will see though.
Well it will be,the same result at regional as it is for any nj team that plays a team outside of nj. End result is usually a loss and usually not even close.Nj will not have a winning record at bethesda, guaranteed.
Fun fact: PL won state cup 2-0 last year.
10:55 was very angry. You think there was a chance his daughter is on one of the teams to be congratulated? I'm just upset that he's not allowing certain kids to try out for his daughter's team. He must be one of the parent/coaches that set out the little cones before practice and gets upset when the girls move them.
The PL state cup issue was not a club error. It was set up properly to satisfy US Youths ridiculous requirements for qualification but EDP league moved one of the other PAE teams out of our division leaving us one game short, as of now. Not a problem, we have 4 monthes to get it in, and we will. No need to get 1776 or the Uk's excited. PL will be playing for at least one more state title this spring. And who cares how "weak" it is? To the girls a state championship is a state championship. And btw, congrats to the NJ winners as well!
Sounds like those PL girls will be so busy going off to all those different tryouts that they may not care about state cup anyway. It's all 1776!
1215 Keep tooting your horn. You are going to go down big at Bethesda. You may win 1 game if that. You won't even be in the top 3.
Too much PL talk today, sorry guys and girls. How about some discussion on how much FC Bucks and CFC will improve after the birth year change? Or will the Wildcats have a greater number of players come over due to it? Or will apples not be as red this year due to the warm weather? Bethesda predictions anyone? Or how about those Hempfield Fall Classic predictions?PL Parent
Tryouts? Since when do PL girls have to go to tryouts to make a team?
PA is very diluted area and at U14 have so many competitive teams. (PennFusion ECNL & NPL, 1776, Penn Legacy, YMS, PA Classics, FC Bucks, Hummelville, Penn United, CFC, HMMS, Rage SC, Lehigh, Ukie) - That's 250+ players within an area of which top players will flock in/out of because of the age change you wont see one team yet compete regionally until U16 as their are to many teams fighting for each other for players.
I'm not sure all those teams should really be lumped together
110 Agreed they shouldn't be lumped together but realistically you have at least 2-4 players from each team that are tops on the team. But he does make a valid point of player dilution v NJ you have two major teams PDA, Match Fit then Wildcats, STA, NJSCA that's it.
OK, so who the hell is PAC?

I agree with 1:57. Sorry 1776
I pick mf ecnl flight 1. The old npl girls will bring it home to nj. Show them how it's done.
How about Chesapeake Flight?
Looks like GPS vs PA ClassicsBut I wouldnt be surprised if NYSC broke through
Hahaha, good one, but at this point I will take it....
Its not being given to you - the girls are working hard for it
10:55 - Winning the NJ State Cup, is like winning a second level tournament. Or it's like riding a moped. It's a lot of fun, until someone sees you doing it.But it's still a win, so congrats on winning I am sure it was exciting for your team... and that's a lot of fun.

I keep hearing that NJ doesn't fare well outside the state. MF went to state cup nationals and PDA went to NPL nationals in July and did pretty darn well. Now I realize that both teams are now somewgat different but not all teams get clobbered by other states.
Long lonng list of NJ wins vs out of state foes
None of these tournaments are exactly the world cup. It is all kid soccer so relax and congrats to all.
3:41 poster, you are a big DOUCHE. How can you say winning the State Cup is like winning a second level tournament? Why because the top ECNL teams were not it in? I think half of the top 10 teams were in in. You are the type of DB that would tell these 13 year old girls that their title means nothing, don't brag about winning the state cup. Congratulations to NJCSA Elite and congratulations to Washington United who won the State Cup in the president's level. It is ridiculous how people on this blog only talk about or try to stir up crap about the top teams only. Isn't this a U14 Girls Youth Soccer blog? It's not an ECNL or my daughter plays on PDA, I'm a stuck up DB blog.
Yes, good tournament, guys. Well done.
4:33That's was an award winning rant!! Not sure if 3:41 is a Douchebag, but you do seem to have different outlooks on State Cup play. Part of the issue is there is no criteria to enter other than number of games played in state. This makes for huge mismatches between teams in the beginning. Is there even a criteria for having a winning record to enter? I think club officials have to consider where there team is at before throwing their teams name in the hat. 1:51PAC is PA Classics
341. You are a class a moron I can only guess your team LOST and you still can't handle it.
Who do we congratulate? the NJ number 8 or number 10 team? If they are one in the same why do they need 2 accounts? This is not done on accident. Not sure why all smoke and mirrors with a GS account, why wouldn't you want all your results in one place? NJCSA ELITE NPL -MANALAPANNJCSA ELITEGS 4 Life
I'm sure club officials that are much smarter than any of us know the reason. If fact, their logic for doing so should not even be questioned. Case closed!!

Yup smoke and mirrors. Read below from GS - smarter than most of us?Per GS!!Each team needs to use the same account for all their event applications through GotSoccer. Managers and coaches MUST use this team account when entering a Gotsoccer event. If you choose to create a new account instead of using the existing account username and password you will need to use the Account Merge tool to correct this. Please note, a fee of $25 is associated with each merge request.
Why is it smoke and mirrors? If they want their points split then let them . If you combine the 2 they would probably be #1 in the state. It only hurts them
3:41 I agree with the post.Congratulations winning the State Cup. They beat who they played. They won, gotta give them credit.It's a fact that there's a lot of teams in NJ that are clearly better, that didn't bother to get involved.
5:46 Looks like NJCSA beat a lot of lower clubs to pad their worthless GS points... Are they going to Bethesda to prove how good they really are?
Why you ask?I don't know because GS said "each team NEEDS to use the same account?or maybe"Managers and coaches MUST use this team account"or maybe"If you choose to create a new account instead of using the existing account username and password you will need to use the Account Merge tool to correct this"They say this for a reason -but they must know better than the people that created the tool why you need to use one account. Obviously you don't get it so i will drop it. PS by using multiple accounts they messing with every team in every flight they are in teams don't get the 300 bonus if they beat them and the flight values are lower so teams get less points. But as you said it's about them who cares about the rules they can do what they want right?I now understand the previous posts about this team.
I guess the State Cup tournament is only important when your team wins. Bitchin as usual, wild cat or old njx parents. They never were good at losing, for having their kids be out shined.
758. "Clearly better"? Why ? Because you said so? Because you don't like NJCSA? Because your a small minded moron? Which is it?
Small minded moron. Big Douche. I have to give it to NJ parents, they know how insult in a much more sophisticated manor. PA parents need to read and learn.
8:47 Name calling? Who's the moron? In my opinion, you're a complete idiot. In my opinion NJCSA could not win against several NJ teams if they were spotted 2 goals.Please stop calling people names that you don't know. You come off like you're missing a few chromosomes.
@8:40 - No one I know lost to your precious njsca... Congrats on the win... too bad it's lost 90% of what it was only a few years ago... move along son
How embarrassing for NJ Rush Hamilton losing to Averbuch 9-0 in the EDP NPL game. Why didn't they send the better team NJ Rush 01 Blue? Who made that stupid decision to play the weaker team? 01 Blue plays all those teams in the EDP League now. NJ Rush if you want to compete with the big boys you need to reconfigure your future decisions and put your stronger teams against stronger competition.
