I think Voorhees would win small sided. Lyon's speed and passing ability lend themselves to be better at 11v11. 8v8 ends up becoming a Futsal game.
At this point I don't think the field size would matter.
Just saw the last few posts. I agree Voorhees would win. I wish they were playing this weekend at the EDP event. I just looked at their GOT SOCCER. The team has only lost three times since March, and only by one goal. The only team close to them is Lower Merion, and Voorhees has beaten them plenty of times. Face facts Voorhees in a unique team. Town team that plays better then club teams. What is seems to me is a strong group of girls from the same town that just happen to be great young players. Their record speaks for itself, Jeff Cup winners and State Cup winners.... We will have to see what happens this season, but from the looks of it, they are on the same path as last year.
Why did Voorhees (and the rest of other "top" teams) choose to stay 8v8 for U11?
The overwhelming majority of teams are playing 8v8 at U11, not just some of the other "top" teams. Kudos to Voorhees and the other town teams that keep school friends together at the younger ages. I'm hearing of a trend towards 8v8or 9v9 next year at the U12 age. Is anyone hearing the same thing?
8v8 field is too small for u 12 girls. Even for some u 11 teams. Seen most teams play at this age group. IMO PDA Lyon is far more talented and deeper than the rest.
Yes, majority of the regional leagues are going to be 8v8 at U12. EDP and JAGS will offer both as the do now. They are close to adopting a larger field size requirement for u11/u12.
Think the top the teams are doing each other a disservice by not playing directly with each other. EDP u11 is a joke with lopsided match ups. How do these "top" teams expect to do well nationally when they aren't playing the best at the local level. 8v8 or 9v9 is a joke at u12. Voorhees, world class, crush, PDA Lyon should be playing each other every other week if they are the top teams. Waste of time playing other teams.
I watched the Jps vs Sjeb east game today wow what a blow out 7-0 and barons played keep away the second half it was crazy thought Jps was better
My daughter and I came over to the farm early (she plays u11 8v8). I wanted to see the Jersey Premier and Barons E game. And I have to say that there are a couple decent players on Jersey Premier BUT there seems to be an issue with some of the girls. Seems like they didnt want to pass often, keeping the ball to themselves no matter their position to try and get the goal and sometimes looked lazy not putting in the effort to run. They did look good the first 15-20 minutes then it went south. They had a girl here and there open clear as clear could be and they wouldn't pass. If you want to win you have to play as a team. And that I didn't see from Jersey Premier but I did see that with the Barons E. Job well done.
Bad loss for the Sjeb east team didn't let a goal in the whole tourny and loss on a own goal...team looked like it feel apart the last game...Sjeb had a lot of chances to score just couldn't finish...that's soccer better team can't always win...I still think Lyon is the top team after watching barons play...they let there emotions beat them...Jps u lost to barons east and barons west team face the fact Jps is not a strong team and that's the truth....wait till all the 8v8 teams go 11v11 then the comp will be even stronger
What happened to Hamilton Rush? First, why were they in the third flight of 8v8 and second, how do they not win that flight? Missing girls, injuries?
Barons East are a fanominal team. Lyon is probably the best. I can't wait till Voorhees moves up to 11v11 to play Lyon. Should make for a very interesting game. Barons East had a great run at the tournament this past weekend but came up against a team that gave them a run for their money. Tough way to lose also. I understand their are strong teams and their are weak teams and a team makes or breaks a win or loss. But some of these weak teams like Match Fit and Jersey Premier and Barons West have a few strong players regardless of how the rest if the team plays. It's a shame those stronger players couldn't be on a team together. Oh well, on to the next game kids.
Interesting to see what happens with World Class and NJ Crush this weekend. Off of their overall body of work WC may be the best team at 8v8.
WC wins. Top three crush girls will leave club next year - they always do. All the older teams become very average over time and fade away.
Okay, any of the top 5 teams playing U11 8v8 in NJ this fall, can beat one another. Teams have good days and bad... What it comes down to, is how they perform in the end. Top teams will tie, or loose a game here or there. Does not mean they are a bad team just had a bad day! Hence the Giants on Sunday! Bad day! The team bashing i.e: Crush will loose their top 3 girls, or World Class is just kick and run, Voorhees is the dirtiest team in the state. Let the girls who want it most prove it. I guess a lot will be settled at the EDP CUP in November.
I find it hilarious that grown adults are on a u11G soccer forum putting down teams and little girls. YES.....little girls. Big deal one can kick better than the other. Do you not get they are little girls and not seasoned professional athletes????? Leave the kids alone, shut your mouths on the sidelines, let the little girls play a sport they love and not a sport you wish you were good at.
What is the EDP cup?
@2:23...Well Said. These parents are a joke!!
Brick Angels 2 SJEB East 1PDA Lyon Blue 2 Jackson Wolves 1Middletown 6 Freehold Flash 0JPS 3 Hibernian 2Semi Finals Saturday:Brick vs PDA Lyon BlueMiddletown vs JPSFinals are Sunday...Good luck to all!
Should be great weather for the semis and finals. Looking forward to a wonderful weekend of soccer. Good Luck to everyone in both 8v8 and 11v11.
PDA Lyon is a good team, Vorhees is a good team, NJ Crush is a good team, Middletown is a good team, there a bunch of good teams, no need to fight over who is better. Just enjoy your kids playing at a high level against good teams. Sooner rather than later, all our kids will be grown and all this will be over.It goes fast...sit back and enjoy
Well said 3:36. It will be great to watch how the girls and teams have grown over the last few years and enjoy some great soccer.
