U13G / U13 Girls Youth Soccer

U13G  / U13 Girls youth soccer seems to offer the most teams and the widest diversity of talent.

Where these players will end up is anyone guess.

Welcome to the ride.

Just saw 2:28's post. Totally agree!

I totally agree on the Spirit tournament going by GS points standings, I think they will follow this closely and will move teams down or up based on the coach's request because only the coaches know their teams strength based on gains or loss of players. Can someone tell me why doesn't PDA's main teams ECNL/NPL do not attend any of the nearby tournaments(Crusa, Delco, Spirit, FC Stars, World Class's etc.) do they restrict themselves as they competing ECNL clubs that run those tourney's.

PDA and MFA send their better teams to Stars of Mass tourney.

PDA Shore oh come on. SJEB took them apart Sunday 3-0. They beat Wildcats with Storm, Dragon and Ajax players. This is
The only reason Shore Fusion has any wins against good teams. The "guest" players weren't there Sunday and yes
I watched the whole game it was poor.

Anonymous said...

I also like YMS to win 2nd flight, have seen them play before and they are a good big team. PDA shore is the brand, but losing, and it is hard to tell why. They could of, should of beat boca, I am not sure about sjeb, but 3-0, even if defense broke down, no goals. Gentlemen and ladies and children, if you do not score, in any sport, you cannot win. Although in our sport, you get a point with a 0-0 tie. The keepers are still learning, forever, ask Hope Solo, so to not score at all, at U13 is a hard one for me to swallow, also as a former striker, it was my job to score, make every penalty shot, score on each break away. Missing the lay up can happen, but should not at these levels

Anonymous said...

I think the flights will be similar to the Delco tourney. Except maybe YMS moving to F2. 1231 I disagree if you look at last year's FC Stars Cup PDA ECNL teams did not attend maybe many guess played with PDA that went up but the main team did not attend as they many PDA teams attended the Eclipse tourney in Michigan get your facts straight.

And yes there is a reason why local ECNL clubs do not play in each other tourney's they avoid feeding the market and prevent players from jumping or always looking for greener pastures.

Shore Fusion never beat Wildcats. Decent team though

Which Wildcats? Too confusing now.

Anonymous said...

No Dragons have ever played for another PDA team. Stop with the nonsense. And PDA Shore did beat Wildcats. Look it up.

Anonymous said...

And no Storm players have played for Fusion. Not even worth responding on it...but I have anyway.

They have lost some and won some. Lost to SJB and yes beat Wildcats. Still a team in transition. Maybe some additional Toms River girls will make the switch soon :).

Since the NYCSL NPL is the only Region1 NPL ready for next season
My Pre-Season 15/16 Prediction

EAST DIVISION
1. New York SC NPL-01
2. Intense SA NPL-01
3. Manhattan SC NPL-01
4. Massapequa SC NPL-01
5. Brentwood SC NPL-01
6. NY Rush NPL-01

WEST DIVISION
1. STA NPL-01
2. NJ Crush FC NPL-01
3. Quickstrike FC NPL-01
4. Match Fit NPL-01 (aka Blue)
5. NJ Stallions NPL-01
6. PSA NPL-01

Attaboy.....

Careful - did Brentwood bring an entire team in (I had heard maybe E Islip)?

ISA will be improved. And 'Pequa made nice strides

Anonymous said...

Not sure how much E islip will help? I did not see a E. Islip team in EDP or NYCSL PL, I did find Celtic in D2 of LIJSL (really D4). Is this the team you heard about? or was it West Islip Wildcats? They were in LIJSL Premier flight.

I went with the Brentwood the PL D2 team. ISA will be interesting, did they merge Atletico players or will they let Atletico be the NPL team? Shouldbe interesting for sure.

Just noticed VA NPL also has schedules updated, these 2 NPLs are ready to go for 2015/2016. Will FCV and STA repeat? Only time will tell - enjoy the summer girls.

AUG 22/23 OR 29/30

HOME vs AWAY
CUFC vs FC UNITED
ABGC vs FCV
KIK vs STR
VA RUSH vs NVSC
PWSI vs CYA
VSA vs VIENNA

If any of you guys know people on these teams - you may want to let them know they have multiplec accounts and they could merge them. It's crazy to leave pointson the table regardless if you believe in the tool or not besides making your club look unorginized.

EDP will lose 2 more teams.

MF Black and Smithtown both appear on their way to NorthEast Girls NPL

What happens now with this NPL?

With the new SMITHTOWN KICKERS SC EAST MEADOW NPL joining the league what does this do with the 2 PDA teams? Nothing? Does one leave?

How about MF North (Black) are they replacing the current NE Girls NPL team (aka NJX) or will this team become MF South and MF will now have 2 teams?

Back to EDP how does the Super Club format play out? IS this their NPL division or are they no longer NPL?

If any of you are in the know, do you care to share or we can let time tell us.

My daughter, and her team mates, are about to board a flight and compete for the National Cup. I am greatly saddened that I cannot attend, but I will be there with her in spirit. Play strong, play fair, and always remember that YOU can make the difference in a game. So never surrender, never despair, and trust in your team mates.

Go NYSC

Anonymous said...

The first thing you need to understand is that there are essentially two different leagues: EDP and EDL (the NPL arm of the EDP). All teams in EDL also play in EDP, but not all EDP teams are in the EDL. The EDL is club based, so just because there may be a great u13 team doesn't mean they're going to be accepted to the EDL. Last year both Manhattan and NYSC left, Lehigh Valley seems to have disappeared, and now Smithtown appears to be leaving (MF was not an EDL team so their leaving has no impact on EDL, and very little impact on EDP given the rumors of better PA teams joining). But the EDL would be wise to review and accept a few other clubs, otherwise they're going become less and less relevant. Wildcats won this year with very little competition, and they really should turn it into a year long format instead of just a Spring season competition. I'm not sure who runs the show over there but they're doing the clubs and the players a disservice. Shame on them.

The Eastern Development Program is excited to announce the introduction of the EDP Super Club model for the 2015/2016 season. The EDP Super Club model will see selected clubs join an exclusive club-v-club model within the EDP league showcasing the very best youth soccer in the East coast.

Below are the Girl clubs, I was wondering if this will replace EDL -trust me I understand the difference between EDP and EDL

Interesting. I hadn't seen that press release. It's funny, but not surprising, that it doesn't actually appear anywhere on the EDP website.

I'm curious to see how this format works, if it's broken into division (North/South?) or just a year long format where each team plays 19 games. Those details don't appear to be available yet, but please share them if you have them.

I'm not sure if this takes the place of the EDL. It's certainly better from a competitive standpoint, but it eliminates the pathway for those teams to a national stage.

I'm also curious what this means for teams like Boca, Real NJ, Calvert, etc, who aren't in an NPL, aren't in R1, and aren't a part of this new Super Club format within EDP.

*Also no PAC, who I thought were moving to EDP?

Anonymous said...

PAC is on the PAGS D1 list

Anonymous said...

I think EDP is onto something.

Their Super Club Model can have two divisions
with pro/rel as long as all the clubs are approved by US club for NPL.

D1 - NPL Flight to represent the league
D2 - Champ promoted to D1

I think Calvert and all those other teams benefit
from the EDP branch as all these teams will still
want to play NCS and will need EDP either as crossover games or a secondary league if Super Club is a US Club NPL feeder.

There is no semis. Only finals because there are only 8 teams. I see MF NPL/ECNL making finals. Will be tough to beat NEFC in finals.

NeFC will be joining the ranks of the ECNL next year. Good for them.

12:27 Actually Storm is the only one who wasted any ones time. Because of them not one team is representing the Mid-Atlantic Regional at the US Club National event. Why play if you had no intentions of going (oh yeah because you can). I guess this is like GS - nothing is important unless they are in it.

Talk about a god complex.

Below are the groupings, looks solid to me

Looking at the Non-ECNL teams and GS for Region1 looks right on who would you include and who would you replace. Note FC Stars would actually be higher if they still had PDA tournament points. The top teams will always be on top - NJ has issues and that's why GS doesn't tell the correct story. Now imagine PAGS also gave GS points.

@206 According to GS NEFC is #1 in Mass, #2 in Region 1 & #3 National. That is about right. On the other hand, Wildcats are #2 in NJ, #7 in Region & #20 National. They are nowhere close to any of those rankings. Barely a top 10 team in NJ, definitely not a top 10 team in the Region & nowhere close to top 20 Nationally. To a man I think even those Wildcat fathers who huddle in the corner would admit this.

Anonymous said...

ECNL will consider clubs for their league based on strength of all age groups-not just u13.

Have you checked to see what all their age groups have been doing at the national finals .

3 champions and one finalist.

Enough said.

Great Club

Great Facilities

Great training.

New to this board, quick question, why all the derogatory comments about this Wildcats team and parents ? From what I am reading, it seems that the people posting these comments have issues. Whats the story and history ?

The ex-NJX Celtic coach and a certain ex-NJX and now MF father are the main haters of Wildcats.

2:53 how can you even make a statement like that without supporting it? What's your background besides anonymous? NJ Wildcats beat STA twice and STA lost 3-2 to NEFC - how are they so far off?

2:59 So you are saying ECNL would consider a 3rd MA team? That would mean a 3rd to NJ or CT team as well. GA & FL just was admitted. Have to keep the numbers even remember the entire club travels together ECNL/NPL.

Check out the NYCSL NPL, EDP & ECNL league pages to compile a list of clubs if travel is your thing and your kid is at that level.

If you want to keep it local try some other leagues.

Your list of teams to get to websites for the club

Anonymous said...

If you insist on using that list, I'd recommend you click on a team, then click on the "club info" link, then use the "Club Girls Points" as the measuring stick to evaluate these clubs. This list of teams in the top 25 seems to get shuffled every week. I'd rather focus on the strength of the club, where the training and talent are more consistent. Many teams that are ranked high but don't come from strong clubs are dependent upon one or two key players and/or destined to break up.

To say the MF NE NPL team will not be good is 100% completely misguided... You think that MF would not attract the best available players?
I would assume they are a top 4 team, as they are usually, and to have an opinion formed based on nothing is just jealously, and plain dumb.

Anonymous said...

If MF NPL loses its best 9 players and you only have 14 on the team, the assumption from the outside is that the team can't be nearly as good as they were this year. Not a knock on MF just a guess based on those facts. And not just the best 9 girls but girls who are now ECNL players. I could say the same thing about the Dragons as well who, according to this blog, lost 3-5 players to the ECNL team. There will be question marks but I would bet that PDA is better at backfilling than MF

Anonymous said...

Just watched a few minutes of the NEFC vs JFC NPL final, and I could not be more disappointed with NEFC's style of play. I have heard many good things about their team, and their record speaks for itself, but they are a ground and pound and head the ball forward only kind if team. Listen, I understand that this type of play wins games at u13, but this style indicative of the profound lack of skill, and creativity in US youth Soccer. They did not string 4 passes together, or ever play of the back. It was just long punts from the GK, long boots from the backs, and long shots from the attackers. They are big, and aggressive, and score on mistakes and 2nd chances.

Let's see who has the stronger Kung Fu.

Anonymous said...

The MF players leftover from the former Holmdel NJX will not be capable of keeping a team going in Holmdel. Better players from elsewhere will not join what MF has rated as lesser players.

The MFNJX players that other posts show as 9 in number will now be traveling to train; they will be in for a new normal with a large roster and much less overall playing time. And the travel and less PT will within 1 year have several of them looking elsewhere.

Within that same year if it hasn't already begun, they will be chatting among each other that they wish that NJX never gave themselves up to a MF deal that was not smart from the jump.

The notion that the players would have all left anyway is not really the case here. The players and parents just did not want mommy ball. Nor did they want the "beard" paid coach who was under the control of the mommy coach. Thems the facts.

Now the bottom players are out at MF. The mid and upper players are hiking north for a year of travel, less PT and sadly, several of these parents already know this but they are stuck. "Let the buyer beware" applies here. When you let the leader lead you to places that don't make sense, you share in the responsibility for the outcome.

Anonymous said...

Dude you have to stop. You are obsessed with this issue. No one here cares. Talk to a psychiatrist.

And the team was not getting better. They were the number 1 team 3 years ago. Now barely on top 5. For the top players this is the best thing that could have happened to them. For the middle players they have a chance to compete for a top team in the country. For the bottom players this is actually a good thing. They should move to a team better suited for their capabilities.

I see it as a win for all of the players.

The only one who is troubled by this is you because you are a troubled person.

When you merge multiple players from different teams, 9 if the above post is accurate,it is not just the sum of the talent assembled that determines the quality of the new combined team.
There are always chemistry issues as those mentioned above, will the new players accept a reduced role(less playing time) from what they previously had on their former team? Will they be able to change postions if necessary? Will they embrace these changes and their new and often reduced role? Do they have the skill set and tactical understanding to mesh their talents with the returning players already on the team and fit into the coaches system and style of play.
Many questions and it is no wonder they are nervous and defensive about what the future and this major move holds for their children.

You're not allowed to comment on the MF thing. You'll be called "dude" and a "troubled person". Lol.

The MF team is now one of the best team's in the country?

Anonymous said...

You are not allowed to comment on NJX anymore. That is yesterday's news. Focus on the teams going forward.

The MF ECNL team is 1st or 2nd in NJ which I think puts them top 20 or 30 in country. As is PDA ECNL. I don't think that is a stretch.

Can't wait to hear from the old Celtic parents after a month of commuting to Morris county 3 times per week to watch their kid to play 10-15 minutes per half.
Be careful what you wish for!

Anonymous said...

Just curious. If the NJX team was better than the Jefferson team, then why didn't MF declare that the top team would be out of Holmdel instead of Morris County? Or at least base it on some soccer objectives. At some point, doesn't playing merit enter in? Who negotiated this deal for Holmdel? They gave up their team, the money, the proximity...the whole enchilada. Seems like the Jefferson coach was beaten by the Holmdel coach on the field but not in the board room. That has to hurt the Holmdel leadership. Snookered.

A lot of people bash Wildcats for their GS points but it actually benefits everybody. Wildcats bring a lot of points which increases GS points for the eventual winner. They are like a GS delivery company. They bring easy points to all tournaments they travel to.

They never advance out of pool play which gives additional points to teams that beat and tie them.

If your into GS rankings then you should hope Wildcats register in your tournament.

Anonymous said...

Well for one thing they were told all along by NF that if they made the ECNL Team at U14 they would be allowed to train separately in Raritan and only commute 1x per month for training and for games.
They swallowed this hook, line and sinker which never made a bit of sense and would never have been manageable for the ECNL coach or the chmnistry of the ECNL team.

Anonymous said...

Let's say they got "snookered". If you are on the team you are an ECNL player. Your other alternative is to drive to PDA. Maybe you should try that. If not stop the whining. If you are not on the team it is none of your business. Move on!!!!

Anonymous said...

And let's stop with the NJX team being better than the MF Pre ECNL team. That's like saying the Dragons are better than the Storm. Both Dragons and NJX are top 5 teams in NJ and very good but they are not better than their "A" team. Move on!!!!

Anonymous said...

"I can't wait to hear from Celtic Parent". Do you hear yourself?

Anonymous said...

When the teams were NJX and Jefferson, NJX was better head to head and overall results. Little to debate. Jefferson went to MF first. NJX stayed NJX and continued to do well. Then NJX sold/gave/relinquished their team to MF and then it got interesting. The MF/Jefferson team didn't really do anything of note other than negotiate A team status. Nothing about their play EARNED A team status. NJX should have smelled the stink immediately but the mommy coach was drunk with "this will save my role on the team" and for 1-2 years she watched as MF brought nothing to her team while MF/Jefferson was anointed the "one".

To ensure that there was no conflict, the A team from Jefferson didn't play in the SC and this was even before being an ECNL team. Can't have that team lose to the NJXMF team so best to keep them out of SC. NJX continued to do well but are on fumes because MF is not bringing players to that team (but instead setting the seeds to extract the best players which now has happened) and the mommy coach played along to stay in the picture. The team was a virtual "dead man walkin'" A perfect concoction of both sides culpable and responsible for the aftermath. And the parents drank it up like KoolAid thinking that the clubs leaders had their best interests.

Who cares about NJX? It's over.done.time to move on. I'll use professional teams as an example. Who cares about last season's team? It's all about the future. Time will tell. The kids on the "new" NPL will not be disappointed. Everyone seems to bash the black team and that's fine. But the players and families couldn't have been happier about how they came together in the spring and finished strong. A majority of that team is intact and with the addition of several players from within and from outside they will compete.

8:04, that is why EDP and GA is a joke. If you look at the national rankings of the teams in EDP you realize that most are not even in top ten in the state they are from. They are highly ranked because of the "focaccia" points it gives out.

10:32 Im not from PDA but that's the beauty of the elite teams in NJ. Room for kids to move up. And the desire for players from the outside to get into the top programs to compete with the best. As in your case kids got the call up and their spots are filled with other high level players.

Anonymous said...

So all of you so called experts in July want to project on how some of these teams are going to do this upcoming season. Some of you really need to get a life. Nobody knows how the Dragons and MF-NPL are going to do this season. I hope both teams do well, as I cant wait to see the comments from the same people who are constantly bashing these teams. You guys will probably come up with another excuse. As always on this blog, the top teams always get the heat!!

Anonymous said...

Don't beleive Storm ever moved up players from Dragons in past tryouts until this recent tryout.
They always had movement but in past years the movement was strong players from teams outside of PDA came over(Rage,etc.).
That did not happen this year.
Dragons have never had to replace their core players in past years.
They had very little turnover until the movement this current tryout season.
they also lost the coach who led them to their improvement this year at U13.
They have many questions to answer if they are to continue to improve at U14.
Why are they not playing Spirit, WAGS or Stars of Mass?

Anonymous said...

3 dragon players have been moved up in the past and this year another 3 will be moved up. Also players that will easily fill those roles have been moved down from the storm team.

Life is good. enjoy your watching your kid's in their youth soccer experience.

Anonymous said...

9:40 So you are a Dragon parent? or x-Dragon parent? Not that it matters. Because if you look at the results going by GS the Dragons actually did better the year before. Again going by GS history they never played in Spirit or Wags so I wouldn't expect that to change, they have played Stars of Mass, Manhattan and Jefferson in the past so only time will tell if they are doing Stars of Mass as the app deadline is until July 27th.

Dagons Tournament play

2014/2015 G20, W11, T4, L5, GD +12
2013/2014 G17, W12, T0, L5, GD +21

Speaking of Stars of Mass - do you see the difference between Spirit & Delco and Stars of Mass they show their applied list from the beginning and WAGS is a month after and already showed their list. Nothing to hide no pumping the chest with twitter and you tube feeds announcements

Funny, some coaches out here "selling" their programs by bashing others (which they lose to)

You have dopey coaches who think that teams ONLY improve by adding better players. These coaches don't realize that good programs make their existing players better.

EVERY year a parent should ask themselves is my kid a better soccer player? If so, your at a good place. If not, your being duped.

Anonymous said...

10:30 that just shows you how GS is not a great measuring tool. Dragons played 24 games in NE NPL and were undefeated. They also won the PDA tournament which had the best non-ECNL teams in NJ and other states. Non of that is on GS. They also went to the Semis of the NPL National Championship. They had a great year! Best in NJ !

And they lose their best players to Storm every year. No one on this site wants to believe it because it kills their argument that playing for a B team is a waste of time and money and that your better playing for an inferior clubs A team.

And further, dragons prior coach was great. Their current coach is great and their next years coach is great.

And all of the parents and girls like each other.

And lastly, every girl improves immensely every year.

Priceless!

Relax 11:43 - I included PDA Tournament and your NPl finals in my two year compare. I didn't include NPL because I was lazy and wasn't in the mood to lookup JAGS - but going off of memory I think they were undefeated there as well playing teams like CFC Arsenal and WC Hamm. To me it looks like the same team just either they scored a little less or gave up more goals which isn't important. It'actually backs up your claim.

Without them it would look like this

2014/2015 G12, W7, T1, L4, GD +12
2013/2014 G17, W12, T0, L5, GD +21

I looked it up 20-3-0. Also in that league are MF NPL, PDA South NPL (Ajax), etc. strong from 1-8.

MF NPL qualifies with a 1:1 tie, MN only won 3:1 which makes the math easy for the NEFC vs NYSC game. Winner advances, tie helps NEFC.

I can see know why PDA Storm opted not to go, they would have either had NEFC or MF NPL in their group, Finals would have been no guarantee and that would have been the wrong way to start ECNL career.

First of all Storm would not have problem with MF NPL/ECNL. Dragons beat them 3-0. And theoretically, Dragon players are the 20th to 40th best players at PDA North ( no slam to Dragons). And really no slam to MF.

NEFC, on other hand, would be a good game. They would have met in the finals.

FC Berna did well this weekend, beating an unscoreable on MF summer select team 1-0 in finals. Watch this team, they also won last weekend at Central Jersey. The summer select MF girls played real well, solid defense, teams had hard time penetrating 18, let alone the 50 at times. Then FC Berna came along with an outside 18 penalty shot and scored the lone goal to win final. MF had many chances on FC Berna, but great save by keeper and other post hits could not convert. FC Berna is one to watch, I did not know Stronghold story.

U!3 officially wrapped up. Will be interesting to see what the teams look like when the dust settles.

Spirit- Looks like a good tournament for those middle of the road teams to put their new players on the field. Boston Breakers should have an easy warm up in this one.

Stars of Mass- Sounds like its going to be a powerful lineup of teams. Top 3 brackets will be stacked. I don't put much credence into the results this early in the year, but am curious to see the player movements on some of these teams.

Breakers, PDA, MF, PL all will have new players. NEFC will be there after a very impressive display in Indianapolis the past 2 weeks.

Enjoy the short break. Let the girls have fun and get healthy.

Anonymous said...

Spirit will come down to Breakers, SS and PF in my opinion. Not sure about player movement with Breakers but I imagine they've only added for the better as most all ECNL teams. As far as PF I am aware that they aquired several new players including 3 from PL. Anyone know anything about BRYC? Did they lose players or pick up for the better? Curious if FCV gained any players from there.

6:58 must be a PDA parent. Just because the dragons got smoked by NEFC now it's time to make up excuses for MF going toe to toe with them. NJX did an excellent job with very few subs. Two to be exact because of injuries. Great job this past weekend girls be proud for what you accomplished.

I do not understand why people feel the need to make comments like this. Nobody knows how a team is going to be until they get out and play. Just enjoy watching your own kid play and stop worrying about other teams.

Anonymous said...

Ugh, we have gone over this so many times, but I feel obligated to say this. I agree that having a good coach will help certain girls, but the same coach may not reach others on the same team. My daughters club has taken this situation and created a system that will teach ALL the players. We rotate coaches every year, so the coach for any particular team implements the club’s assigned curriculum for the age group for the entire year. He/she may vary some drills to a specific need, but overall they stick to the club’s carefully designed practice and training protocols. It makes the players have to adapt to the coach, and vice-versa.

My daughter is mature for her age, and she understands and appreciates that the club treats them like adults. This is unlike many other clubs in the region, and we are 100% in favor of this.

Anonymous said...

8:58- For the most part, I agree with changing coaches every couple years. Don't think I would want it every year. How many clubs have 7 to 8 quality coaches in the program?

I feel strongly that players should go to different trainers and camps. Your child can pickup a couple different skills and ideas that work for them.

I feel anybody that plays and trains with only 1 coach is seriously inhibiting their daughters development.

Anonymous said...

8:58

I happen to disagree with you. There is no such thing. Each coach is different and will play a different style on game day. As far as training, you can assign a basic curricilum for the team but true excellence is found in the nuances of the correction of miskes that each individual coach identifies in practice and seeks to correct.

No standard training by the numbers can achieve excellence on the field and bring out excellence in a player.

Just as I can take two players and teach them the same skill drill and both can practice for equal amounts of time and have two totally different results- Every coach has their own style of play and any forced single club curriculum will manifest itself in a different types of play depending on the teacher and their preferred style.


As far as the concern for PDA Storm, Their success will be determined by the quality of the new coach taking over not by the standard manual of practice play. And like all clubs the quality of coaching varies from coach to coach.

If youre gonna put TSF at 10 then MF Black should be 9. Especially since they beat Galaxy and the Crush team that was stacked with A team players.

11:16 A few things I would change - curious why you ranked the way you did?

3. PDA Dragons finished in 1st place of NE Girls NPL and beat MF 3-0 in Final.
4. MF NPL finished in 2nd place of NE Girls NPL lost to Dragons 0-3 in Final.

yes they also played in 3 other games where MF won 1-0 and tied twice 0-0. The tie breaker has always been GD if you don't want to you use league standings. This is why I am curious about your placment.

5. Has to be NJ Wildcats, you can not place STA ahead of them who lost not once but twice to them. Yes they did lose to Ajax who STA beat. In my opinion they are NJ NCS champs who advanced to NPL finals at Indiana and USYSA Region1 event at West virginia.

6. STA just slide them down one slot.

7. PDA Ajax slide them down one slot

8. NJ Crush

9/10 can be any number of teams but I would use NJW Galaxy & TSF.

10 more days and the girls do it all over again as u14 will start. I agree amazing job by all the girls in Region1. I would love to see a PA, NY and VA final 10 rankings as I think those are the other states represented on this board.

My bad I did not realize MF Black beat NJW Galaxy, they also tied them, so I would have no problem dropping NJW Galaxy from the top 10 since MF Black also tied TSF and TSF did not play NJW Galaxy.

MF npl should be ahead of PDA dragons with 1-0 Win. 0-0 was with storm goalie and other 0-0 wasn't a complete game due to an injury with a running clock. 3-0 PDA win everyone knows what that game was as it was posted here. To add to it, NEFC destroyed PDA 4-0 as MF just tied them losing in penalty kicks.

Top 5

1. Storm
2. MF ECNL
3. Dragons
4. MF ECNL/NPL
5. MF NPL

Just saying.

Dragons couldn't beat MF NPL/NJX ever. Obviously, it was a different game and team when it came down to qualifying for Nationals. Unfortunately, that is the way it is. Wouldn't say Dragons are better. They were very fortunate because of MF changes.

Sorry, you just can't say you are ahead of a team after finishing behind in a year long league and being beaten 3-0 in the final...especially after bringing in ringers for the final. The fact that could even be posted is insulting to the board...and I am not from Dragons, just looking at it logically.

Shame for you guys that all your beloved rankings dont actual show where it counts

You sit back, look at scores on a computer and think you know whats what

Sad.

Didn't Dragons lose to the MF NPL team in state cup semis a few weeks earlier??
Pretty safe to say that when one team has one win against a team, a few losses and many ties that the teams are pretty even. Think we can all agree to leave it at that and move on..... Teams are both changing anyway next season.

Dragons are nothing more than a picking ground for Storm.
MF NPL has been nothing but a picking ground for MF #1 team.

Both money grabs for PDA and MF.

MF NPL team died as they were picked clean. PDA will keep Dragons going because they can and they know how to keep more paying customers afloat. MF NPL team was damaged to death by MF and the mommy coach who now lacking MF nor NJX behind her is not going to attract any players. Dead team. Game, set, matchfit;)

So true.
Now it's time for all of them to pay the piper.
Will be an interesting fall when the reality of what they sold out for hits them.

Dragons won their game by outplaying MF. MF won by a mistake by the Dragons.

Why do you people really care? From what I am hearing, this is the way it was going to be from the start. MF was to keep the teams together for 1 year and at u14, when the "TRUE" ECNL League began, MF would integrate the players. I don't see why all the negative comments towards their program, unless you are tying to cause them problems. I just want to see, if they can do better together than they did as the pre-ecnl and NPL teams. By the way, I hear the new MF NPL team is good.

Big difference between this year and last. Last year MF NPL better. This year Dragons.

Come on now.
Dragons are finished as a top flight team.
Best players all gutted by Storm.
Replacement are not near as strong.

Dragons will be just as strong. Just switched 3 dragons for 3 storm players. Will win npl for 2nd consecutive year.
