Rumors rumors rumorsPF is offering spots early, PU is holding early tryouts...bottom line is many clubs are scared of losing good players to clubs that have a solid chance of DA approval...PAC being oneWatch the tryouts and see if those early offers really stand...Isn't it ironic that the application process for the DA starts in May? Once many tryouts are done...
It's a business. Deals are made. All the time .
I also heard that about Ukie and rumor also has it only 4 of the PL players who attended 02 iD event were offered spots. I assume their goalie was one of those four.
Hope all the rumors, if true, don't destroy teams' ability to finish the year out strong. Talk about possible drama...between players themselves and parents of course, quite divisive
11:16 - The Ukies never played PF. They might have played WC at u12 but have never played PF.
7:20 That's why I said 8v8 (when PF was WC). Sorry, I think everyone on here knows PF was West Chester as an 8v8 team. Wouldn't want anyone to think the Ukies beat PF as U13's or U14's. Is that better?
Yes Thank You
Soccer Nut, I want to commend you for an accurate depiction of the MF/PDA teams and game. Both are very good teams with a different style of play. In the fall, PDA won using that style of play. I think MF adjusted well for this game. Hopefully we can see them play again before the end of the season.
Funny how so many people on here act like teams in the fall and now in the spring are different teams...Yes, good job Soccer Nut
Match fit should have won the last two or three games, last year they were out-coached only reason they won with half a minute left in the game. The old coach would play way too defensive with a one-goal lead. In my opinion that conservative conservative Style cost match-fit a few close games over the last couple of years. I also feel at least 6 to 8 players from both teens are playing at the same level of the national team player , the talent spread has definitely narrowed this past season.
There we go again...last year? As in 2014/15 season? Really?This gets old...
Some people really want to forget last year. Last year they wanted to forget the previous year. Next year they'll want to forget this year. The fact that their kids squad consistently underperforms shows how little these teams change from year to year. Any results from the past 12 monthes or so are relevant in a discussion of the overall quality of each team. You can't just go by the most resent month or two or the latest tournament results. You need to consider a larger "body of work" and 12 monthes seems reasonable. Very few of the teams talked about on here are noticeably stronger or weaker than they were a year ago because very few of the core players on these teams turned over.
Ok let's see who's on this board and who will give me objective observations.I'd like to know who/what to look for in the following teams:Albertson Fury ECNLCalvert Crew WhiteRichmond United ECNLPa Classics Academy 01Yes we are in the other group this weekend and I'm scouting...
Watch what you say..... Sounds like a PDA parent.
I highly doubt the njcsa- manalapan girl is playing with match fit. The only way she can be playing for them is if she was a rostered ecnl player for match fit. Match fit would have to be her primary team and would make her ineligible for the regionals with Njcsa-manalapan. If she is rostered with njcsa as her primary club she is ineligible for ecnl games and would violate dual carding as per ecnl rules. Match fit would have to forfeit all games she played in. So I highly doubt she is playing for matchfit.
I would agree with you 11:04, although there are a few teams trending in the wrong direction. Strictly talking non-ecnl, Calvert Crew was considered a quality team as a U13 and PAC looked to be ascending. But as a U14, both teams have not performed well in league or tournament play. But if you look at teams like the Wildcats, PL, 1776, Galaxy and even BRYC, their pretty much who they were as a U13. ECNL and NPL is a different animal because they shift so many players around, so I won't go there.
Yet the ECNL and be NPL league standings are pretty similar to what they were last year no? Top teams are still on top, bottom teams still in the cellar. Storm looks to be slipping and EM ECNL has emerged as the team to beat but all in all fairly close. I will give you Calverts very noticeable decline but they claim a lot of injuries in the fall and PAC has a new coach this year so neither may really be attributed to the players themselves. Maybe we'll see this weekend.
Albertson Fury ECNL - don't knowCalvert Crew White - fallen hard; can't score and looks like they may have lost more players over winter to ECNL clubsRichmond United ECNL - does not belong in this flight; like last year, placed too high because they're affiliated with the tournament hostPa Classics Academy 01 - Solid B flight team, can compete and if lucky that day, may even beat some top teams
Discovery Players: A "Discovery Player" is a player rostered for another club within 200 miles of the training facility of the ECNL Member Club. These players may be rostered by ECNL clubs (with limitations per ECNL Rules). They may be looked at as guest players but they must live within 200 miles.A Discovery Player cannot be from another US Club member, based on the dual carding rule. The player can be released from that club and subsequently registered which, in most cases, can be accomplished.And the link: http://www.eliteclubsnationalleague.com/resource_center/451485.html
"Cannot be from another US Club member" says it all. There are a few exceptions when a player is carded US Youth and US Club. I think MF has a player that does this. Does PDA, PF, CFC Delco, FC Bucks, World Class do any of this (Discovery or dual carded USY and USClub?
The USYSA Regionals are played under a separate card from US Club Card which is used for ECNL/NPL/EDP play so playing in USYSA Regionals should not be affected by playing ECNL under US Club Card for MF.As far as Playing in both ECNL for MF and NPL play for NJCSA Elite, I think there would be the issue as a Discovery Player would normally be from a non NPL club. As stated NO DUAL CARDING for 2 NPL clubs under US club rules,A discovery player cannot be from another US Club Member.They may try and release the player from 1 roster and recard to the other after each event.Not surprised if NJCSA authorizes this, wouldn't be the first time, but for MF a new low in their standards.
PF uses Discovery players.They've lost 3 from their '02 team this year and have added PAGS players as Discovery players to replace them.

1. You can use both cards for EDP games they have the CJYSA umbrella that'show STA was able to play in NCS they played 2 games in the Fall EDP to qualify for NCS. I think NJ Crush NPL played something like 4
Yes but PAGS league isn't NPL so they can do both PAGS with primary team and NPL/ECNL as discovery player under US Club card.The question is whether player can play both ECNL for MF and NPL for NJCSA Elite in same year using same US Club card.
To the person who has all the NJCSa Manalapan information could you please tell me my balance and where to send the check? Since you know so much... Just give me your email so we can all just ask you questions directly ..since you know so much.
If you have more accurate info on the rules governing this please by all means enlighten us.In the meantime this is an information and discussion site so don't try and stifle those who are using it for it's purpose.
really why so much talk about this player??? We've all seen her play multiple times and she is average at best! YAWN Lets talk about Jeff Cup and the impending rain on Sunday in Virginia... Should make for an interesting finals and a real fun ride back up 95
Oh no, rain! You think they'll cancel the tournament?
Another Jeff Cup with miserable weather and a shitty drive home. What's new.
Please do not stifle my yawning, 3:20.
U14 games are going to be played on turf, they are not cancelling the tournament. Why is the sky always falling with you guys?
Sorry, you missed my sarcasm.
Sunday's games will still be a mess regardless of turf. At least Saturday looks good. Positive for ya ;)
You know they play college matches in the rain right? Learning to play under all conditions and how to adapt both personally and as a unit is part of development. Bring on the rain. My daughter loves playing in it(harder for the refs to see her!) And if her team is still there for the final on Sunday, I'd drive her back through a herricane and enjoy every minute of it.
Oh my!! Spellcheck Nazi will be all over that one! And your right, I did miss the sarcasm. It was so obvious too.
6:23 You are so intense. it's really impressive.
6:23 So you're saying your daughter is a dirty player?? Be proud.
It's only a foul if the ref calls it. There's a fine line between tough physical play and being a "dirty player". The closer your kid gets to college ball the more she will learn where that line is and how it shifts depending on the officiating crew. Best not to be too far on either side, but no the college game is not for the weak at heart. You might want to just accept it now.
6:29 I think that was spelled HER-ricane on purpose...
We're talking about the Spellcheck Nazi here. There's no "I meant to spell it that way". A physically tough player that plays a little dirty is always appreciated by a coach and also tends to get noticed. Coaches always feel they can dial them back if needed and will say "I rather have her take it a little to far".
7:01 to his daughter:"Here, do this when the ref isn't looking". Nice.We have hip checkers, hair pullers, all types at this level. And cards stay in pockets.
I don't think anyone condones hair pulling. Just hard physical play and yes emotion does carry it over the top sometimes. Some girls run through the ball and some duck for cover, which one is getting noticed?
Seriously? You want girls carded for hip checking? Maybe if she leads with the hip and lays a girl flat on her way to goal but come on. The fact that every time you breath on your opponent it's not a foul is why soccer is the number one sport in the world and no one can stand watching field hockey.
Diving is the best way to combat hip checking, not cardingSome of you parents, dads I'm guessing, are ridiculous....I'm sure nothing is a foul until your daughter is on the receiving end of it
My daughter has been on the receiving end and at some point in the game she'll return the favor, but she doesn't need the game to be stopped or the opposing player to get a card for it. Its a physical game and their at the point where there doesn't have to be a stoppage every time little Mia falls down when bumped. Maybe your daughter would like to try out for field hockey? Nice clean game with very little contact.
I'm sure big Mia, in your case, always stays on her feetCarding is ridiculous and yes the game is physical. Playing the ball must always be first along with the contact, many coaches are teaching underhanded play and you know it...
7:15 Please explain why booking players is ridiculous? I'm curious.
East Meadow are a bunch of hair-pullers, elbowers, shirt-pullers, trippers, divers. Good luck to all who play them, and tell me on Monday that I was wrong, would enjoy that.P.S And that is just the parents!
8:24Pretty sure the poster was referring to unnecessary booking for hip checkingIf ref warns player for flagrant hip checking without ball being played, then ref can book all day
8:24 I agree - every team has multiple players now that will look to get even with the other team if they think a player got away with a dirty play. Bookings are needed to keep the peace.The funny thing is the parents saying let them play are the first ones to scream for the card when their kid hits the turf on a border line tackle.Also these kids are smart enough now to know to foul so they can stop a counter - a booking is needed for this.
Haha, you’re a funny man 8:51, I have to admit, barrel of laughs!
Thanks 9:01I'll be there all weekend!! Sprinhill Suites NWCome one, come all...except the obnoxious moms
8:46 and 8:52 Exactly, a referee who maintains control by booking players for persistent infringement or reckless challenges keeps the game flowing by putting an end to that type of behavior. It also to some extent takes away the need for retaliation. People get so bent out of shape over a yellow card. Relax, it's a caution, not a jail sentence. Don't do it again and you're fine. The game is physical and that's fine, but there are boundaries.
Unfair to call out parents for "if it was your kid......" mentality.Most of us are wise enough to look for cards even on our own players.Lets face it - many referees dont card because to them it is one more thing to have to deal with (like blowing the whistle for some of them).
Agree 3:57 average at best. Too slow to ever be an impact player.
Just trying to catch up. "Too slow".....what team? Not asking for a number.

80 degrees and sun in Richmond today, 40 degrees with rain and a few flakes in Richmond on Sunday. Yea, Spring Break!
We get it. Your teams not going and you are happy about it. Enjoy your weekend sitting on your fat butt, drinking beer, and watching basketball. I'm sure the majority of the rest of us would rather watch our daughters play in the rain then spend 1 sunny minute on a sideline next to your miserable ass.
Excellent futbol weather indeed for Sunday
We have umbrellas, so whats the issue? Daughter enjoys it when the elements are less than ideal. Sorry your team didn't get accepted, but have your club DOC schedule your team for the Europa Turf Cup next year. They take all comers.

Wow, unless its the same guy, we just picked up 2 solid endorsements, thanks Anon’s!
From what I've seen of wildcats galaxy I don't think they make it out of their bracket
Not going personally (team didn't apply this year) and I'm happy about that, but I am looking forward to seeing some scores! Good luck all who are going!
6:02 I like some of your picks, but picking all the PDA teams sorts of gives you away. Do you really believe PDA will put three teams in final? Seriously? Dragons might win one game, maybe. Refresh me on when's the last time five NJ teams made it to the finals?
Next year CBS will run an on line bracket. CFC Connecticut ECNL should win their bracket although their recent results suggest otherwise. And a finals match up versus Oakwood which is recently returned from Spain and playing with confidence will be a classic for the little state to enjoy thru tryout season. The CT blog will light up like the posts here following MF and PDA. Some say it will pit the likely GDA team versus a remaining ECNL team. As for who gets to play YMS hard to look past the South Carolina ECNL team. LVU may have the best shot on Sunday in the rain. Cheers and enjoy VA.
Or a Galaxy Parent. I agree they won't get out of their bracket in Flight 2.
6:48 I don't think PDA will put 3 teams in the final that's why I only picked 2 to make the finals. Was only going to pick 1 but I think the Dragons can handle their side of the bracket. If they were higher I wouldn't have picked them and I only put 4 NJ teams in the finals. You said it gives me away and another poster said Galaxy parent- I would have thought picking 7 NY teams would have given me away. I would like to see that CT match up also, but 6-1 beat down to EM scared me.
Dragons lost to East Meadow NPL, I see in my travels.Interesting.
5:24 and 5:29 - Who pissed in your Wheaties? A little angered management maybe? Definitely sound like Jersey parents. No one said they weren't going. See you all in Richmond!
Jeff Cup is cursed with bad weather. Smh
8:13 I stand corrected. Next Monday we'll see who has the most correct. As a small wager, how about no posting by the loser for one week (gentlemen's word of course)? Of course most on here would like the wager to be forever.

Can't wait til Sunday afternoon on..."Well the team didn't perform well this weekend bc we were short our star players, our girls don't play well in the rain, they were reading this blog and lost their confidence...etc" :)
Excuses will be flying with some! Rain, injuries, and here's another to prepare for in advance, "our best player was in California at the U14 national camp" Just remember all, it's a team sport. Win as team or lose as a team, just do it honorably.
Snow on Sunday? Thats great. I can picture I95 now lol
Goodness people!! Look at the temps...no snow down there!
Richmond: "Rain and snow" Does it matter though? Both suck.
Richmond VA-NOAA weather forecastSaturday Mostly sunny, with a high near 53. North wind 5 to 7 mph.Saturday Night A chance of rain. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 38. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.Sunday Rain likely, mainly before 2pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 47. Chance of precipitation is 60%.
If it was 70 degrees and sunny they would be complaining its too hot for this time of year. Who cares about the weather in Richmond as long as the girls are playing? Pour some more milk in that glass so its not half empty.
11:13 oh no you don't- you bring lots of value and should continue regardless - all i do is post results in a one stop shop - so instead you guys will just have to google around if you still want them.It sounds like PA is finally jumping on the ECNL band wagon to bad the BYC had to force this. the NorthEast Conf just got stronger if Delco and Bucks can improve. What's the word when are the PA NCS brackets going to be released?NJ Cup 4 Real NJSC Sounders2 Monroe Twp. SC NJM Elite

Good job NJ Sounders! Must feel good going to Jeff Cup with that cup win under your belts, bravo!
It's going to be sunny and 60 all weekend in Fredericksburg, no wind, great officials, perfect manicured grass fields, that even Hope Solo would be jealous of, and really hot soccer Moms doing yoga all day, boy oh boy I cannot wait...
We need full reports on everyone's favorite soccer mom from 1776.
8:24 top to bottom there's not a girl on that roster who can't play. They don't all have the slick moves but there's lots of speed, strength, tenacity, skill, technique, and smarts to go around. If they all show up to play they should be fine without their best player. So there.
10:04Pictures would be great too, Saturday would be best!
10:24 What teams best player is in California?
Saw a couple players listed from each EM, FCV, PDA...http://www.ussoccer.com/stories/2016/03/16/12/22/160316-u14gnt-opens-new-cycle-at-us-soccer
Good thing for Wildcats and PL! Maybe they'll score one now! Just kidding.
It will help make for a better game between some.
And the excuses begin.
if..if we don't do well this weekend..it's because..because..well it's not our fault, the gods are against us really, that's it! Yeah, and those girls were injured because they play school sports...yeah that's it!
Cold rain and snow. What a way to start the year!
STOP WITH THE WEATHER!!!!!
Regarding weather in VA this weekend. I told my daughter, rain and snow on Sunday. She knows it is turf so no problems. She is a keeper, we played in snow last year at least twice on turf. Snow is actually much better than rain, unless snowing large flakes. It was no issue at all with snow last spring on turf. The rain is a killer on turf or grass. Cold hard rain is not conducive for soccer, however as one poster says, get used to it, they play all the time in down pouring rain.
STOP, PLEASE STOP!!!!!!
Forecast now calling for 40 to 50 mph winds with possible marble size hail.
They sell really nice portable rain shelters. Highly recommend!

Wildcats Averbuch U14 keeper ruled out by doctor with shoulder injury this weekend.We have an OK to bring a guest if any keeper whose team is off this weekend wants to play in flight 1 and they will allow them to guest with us please contact njwildcatsKevin@aol.com.thank you.
3:04 are you saying that my picks stink and I'm a lock to lose the bet?
I don't know the PDA team but there's a defender on the PDA roster that's also listed as a National Team invitee. Did she chose Jeff Cup instead?
3:42 you do realize this is a pre-season tournament, right?EM already traveled to AZ and MF going to CA -both will be in SC also. i think this has more to do with we have a west coast overnight tournament plus overnight stays in SC and their league games in MA, CT, PA, NJ & NY - i also think EM was at Stars and MF at Bethesda - you really think they skipped because players in CA? I don't, but i must be with them to know this right? GS4L
THats a weird one 3:50, as she is actually listed on the Match Fit roster (Gotsoccer)Maybe she has changed to PDA recently - or away from them.The PDA keeper listed is a U13, as is the Albertson player.
@4:09, you do know that ECNL lists the teams' rosters on their website. So can you answer the question: is the defender listed as a PDA player on both the national team roster and the PDA's roster on the ECNL website playing JeffCup, or are both rosters incorrect and she's actually on Match Fit?
Yes, ECNL website confirms the move to PDA - my bad.So they are down at least one.
Oh, the weather outside is frightful,Why are some people always so spiteful,And since we've got at least 3 games to go,Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
3:52You are likely correct, 3:52. Lots of travel in ECNL. How is that going?
So looking at the top flight this weekend, FCV may be down two players (NTC); EM down a goalie (NTC); PDA down one player (NTC); Fla Elite down one player (NTC); and Wildcats down their regular goalie (injury). Are there other excuses we should know about? Let's hear them now.
Thus why the DA - Girls program cannot come sooner. As many of those girls chosen are from ECNL clubs with very high connections with the US Coaching Staff. There are so many talented players not playing ECNL that have the same potential but congrats on those chosen.
Okay, more excuses. PL down a striker due to ankle injury and down a left footed outside mid/wing. Did get a defender back yesterday though, so that's a plus.
Or the other side: The best players are on ECNL teams and so the ECNL teams are more highly represented at national events. This fantasy that the DA will come along and pluck diamonds from the rough is just that. DA will be ECNL renamed as far as these events are concerned. Who do you think will coach DA? News flash: The current ecnl coaches.
Making excuses?Wildcats post was to try and get an available guest keeper so they don't have to play with a field player in goal.
My post wasn't to criticize Wildcats for seeking a goalie; that is very bad luck for them and I hope they get an adequate replacement. BUT, if they do poorly, will it be used as an excuse ? Probably, just like the poor performance from any of these other teams will be attributed to the absence of their respective players. And to be clear, those are pretty good excuses since by definition, those players are very good or else they wouldn't be going to Glendale.
So every team in F1 is down a couple key players. So no excuses from anyone.
Stop already, 5:30
I am asking that everyone stops posting excuses before the games are even played. In what way has that upset you?
My team is missy it's top two players and we will still beat your team.
My dog is getting sick so I'll stay homeHope that doesn't affect little Missy's play
I'm rooting for an underdog! So Good Luck BRYC and PL. Not likely to happen but it's more interesting that way.
Everyone is missing players. PDA has a girl in Cali too and their other national player may miss with an injury that occurred late in last game. The ECNL teams missing players actually helps things somewhat because clubs don't have to leave anybody off the rooster.
Yeah 7:19!! I picking those two teams as well. And of course Ajax in the second bracket the powerhouse Boca team to win their bracket.
Not much talk about last weeks match-fit PDA game. I've read PDA had 60% of The Possession, someone I talk to sad that's only because match fit had one Stryker pressuring the ball made it sounded like match fit let them possess the ball .Anyway it looks like it's time to do this. nj#1MF. I read soccer nut was there.How did this happen after all the bad talk about MF the last few months.How did those NJX girls play?wow I would have paid good money to see that game.
The site is an information site. Asking for a possible guest to replace a player injured at the 11th hour is not making excuses. We will put one of our field players in goal and play with what we have.I'm sure the other teams will replace their missing players with subs and do the same.
5:07 isn't that next to Ridgewood and Middle Village? Why would they go there?
10:39 You are correct. The Top Drawer rankings had MF (#6) higher than PDA (#11) before the game and after last Sundays win there is no debate as to who's NJ's #1.
GS4L the PA NCS Cup schedules are out.
Please most of us would rather watch paint dry than watch state cup games anymore.
So your team isn't playing in state cup...
Please 12:15, do tell us about the amazing competition? Zzzzzzzzzzz.....

NJ and NY only like talking about themselves...and which awesome player will be missing this weekend...already preparing the excuses...
8:13Quite easy...each Home team will walk away with win
8:13Is there a Rec soccer board you can take that to?
See all you crazy peeps in VA, enjoy the rides, be safe, enjoy the soccer. To tell you the truth no place I would rather be than on a pitch all weekend. Plenty of time for vacation in July. And my daughter just loves it, cannot wait to be on the pitch, hang with the gals and relax in hotel and play ball.
ChampionshipBRYC over FCV – BRYC has beaten CASL, PDA playing poorly and missing at least one key player. FCV has depth to overcome PL; I’d pick EM but missing their goalie proves their downfall.Elite OrangeOakwood over Galaxy – I could see any of the Group B teams winning, as they’re all better than the Group A teams. Picking Oakwood over Bethesda from that group b/c Bethesda always seems to screw up one game. Would pick Conn. FC in Group A but I don’t know if they can function w/o their best player so Galaxy it is. I’m still waiting for proof that NSA belongs in this flight.Elite BlackAlbertson over STA – STA vs Md Utd will determine winner of group A but Md Utd has lost two finals recently against teams they should have beaten so I’m going with STA. Albertson over PA Classics from Group B. Bonus pick – Richmond Utd to score 1 goal max.
10:53 Seriously that was un called for on this blog.
1776 mom has calmed down a little bit. At least during the fall it seem that she was sitting back and enjoying the game a little more. Seems she gets wound up when playing PL and the game gets a little rough.
10:56 must be new on here
Can somebody calculate updated flight values for JeffCup brackets? As the ECNL teams are playing more ECNL events which are not GS-rated, the values of the top flights don't reflect the quality of the teams playing. Does anyone believe that the GS rankings for FCV (#138) and East Meadow (#145) accurately represent how they're playing? Goes to show how GS points will be less and less accurate as the girls get older.
10:56 That was a pretty light statement on here. After your done picking out the new paint patterns for the laundry room and cleaning the stove, try reading it again. Other good reading material for you to try would be See Spot Run, and maybe Curious George and the Man in Yellow Hat. Although I'm not to sure about the guy in the yellow hat and what he's doing with that monkey.
10:56 1776 has earned way worse than that.
I think her meds have kicked in , keeping her a little calmer .
Let it rain let it rain. Forecast just keeps getting wetter.
Weather guy is tedious, but still way cooler than spell check nazi.
I heard spellcheck guy used to be the most interesting man in this country.But I hear a lot of things. The weather guy is pretty special too.Count your blessings
I saw the Boca Moms! They got it going on!
Beautiful day for soccer, you'll never walk alone girls.Bless you all, and God Bless the United States if America!
Jeff Cup scores anyone?
I think they were looking for inside scoop into games. Always more interesting on here.
Jeff Cup is showing tomorrow's EM vs FCV score to be 1-1. Since they haven't played yet, I'm guessing that's the EM / Wildcats score.Big surprise to me is Connecticut CFC over Galaxy 3-0. Guess that team will do fine without headband.
East meadow 1-1 with Wildcats
There's your surprise score of the day!
PDA 1CASL 0
That's a surprise too.
Connecticut playing without their "all world" National Team player. Impressive.
Could come down to goal scoring. Not a fan of the point system in this tourney.
Nice of 1776 to show up...blown out 5-0. Ouch.
Heard PDA was clearly the dominant team over CASL, despite just the 1-0 scoreBRYC tied Fla 1-1
1:52 saw the game PDA not dominant. Had their hands full.
Guess Wildcats found a keeper?
Wildcats all the way!
Looks like 1776 could have used one. Wow. Have they beaten any legitimate F1 teams in the last year?
EM 4PL 0
EM 4PL 0FCV 4NJ 0No surprise this bracket will come down to tomorrow's game with FCV vs EM. Both had weaker showings for their first game but then beat up on their next opponents. Should be a great game tomorrow.
Imagine if FCV and EM had their national players with them today, might've been even uglier.
3:05 nope obviously not! FCV just wasn't warmed up lol
Sometime these National Players ruin the chemistry of the team.
EM has the national player in Jefferson
PDA 2BRYC 1
National Camp roster for this weekend lists 2 EM players and 2 FCV players. One of EM's is goalie.
FCV Elite (B team) had 2 tough games today - played ISA (ranked 48 nationally) and drew 0-0 with very few chances and a good, competitive game. Second game beat Storm 1-0: Storm played very well and really should have won. The FCV keeper made 3 stunning (and I do mean stunning) saves and really kept the team in it.Shows rankings are rubbish - Storm ranked around 1,200 nationally but were a very, very strong team.Going into tomorrow all 4 teams have a chance - FCV should be clear favorites but will be missing players going to Europe for ODP and 3 going on vacation and another 3 injured. Really good competition and the brackets at this tournament, on the whole, seem to work really well. The points system also makes it interesting as losing 1 game does not automatically mean a team is eliminated.
Everyone is missing thier National Team players.
I'm sure the EM national player didn't miss national camp to be at the jefferson cup.
Werent bloggers saying NJ Wildcats and Penn Legacy didn't belong in this top division when they were first released?
So 7:29. What other two teams did belong? Each team played a great first game and gave it all they had.
Cats and PL have proven yet again they can't win a major. In F2 at least they'd have a good chance.
Bethesda ECNL and Oakwood
