Are state cup bracket out yet and if so when can you find it trying to see what teams there are for 8v8 and 11v11
The State Cup draw looks to be on September 13th.http://www.njyouthsoccer.com/clubsite/?p=5329
JAGS is a complete mess.
Why do you think JAGS is a mess? Not claiming it is or isn't....
I understand that there are teams still waiting on schedules. So, it should be that the scheduling is a mess.
All leagues seem to have a lacking in the scheduling department. A good team manager is key!!
LOL at JAGS. Schedules are out, but for some reason they have been unable to figure out how to use Got Soccer. We got our schedule over the weekend. Most of the best teams went to EDP, but still some good teams in JAGS. JAGS has become the best of the town based clubs.
JAGS going to Got Soccer changes everything because it becomes about points as suppose to development which this age should be about. Now you have to play everyone in a flight to be judged instead of playing as many teams you want to develop. This ruins the older age groups a team start to chase points.
Anyone want to preview/predict the round of 32 state cup games for this weekend. Obviously we aren't focusing enough on results for matches between mostly 10 year old girls ... (jk) ;-) ... I am interested in people's experiences working with the various leagues, particularly the experience of EDP vs JAGS. My impression is EDP has more resources (people) to bring to bear, while JAGS is run by just a couple people, which is probably why they have struggled with schedules, etc ... Are the costs much higher for EDP to pay for those extra resources? Any other major differences besides possibly the level of competition available?
EDP is almost 4x the cost of JAGS due to volunteers compared to paid administrators. You get more for your money in JAGS for this age but as you get older the better competition is playing elsewhere.
The Volunteers at JAGs can't figure out how to use Got Soccer. Anyone know the JAGS flighting?As far as the state cup, on paper Crush and Voorhees are the two best teams at 8v8.
I agree with crush n voorhees 8v8...11v11 draw isn't that strong I have to say Sjeb or Middletown will win 11v11 n voorhees will win 8v8
It seems like this year very few teams are doing State Cup compared to the past. I know when my daughter was u11 there were far more teams. Any theories as to why? More teams playing multiple leagues?
@415 i agree maybe pda couldn't field 23 teams lo any predictions this weekend in edp 11 vs 11
It's too bad more teams aren't playing. Maybe more will play come spring. It's fun facing new teams. Gives the girls a change from playing same old teams.
SJEB 6 - PDA South 1
6 to 1 sjeb over pda south wow what happened to pda south I heard they had alot of problems over there I didn't see that coming I heard they also lost to a u 10 team time to get your house in order
Sounds like the barons have gotten better
Seems like things not going well in nirvana, aka paradise, aka PDA.
My daughter is new to pda south we need players asap we need a goalie and field players asap please feel free to come out 6 girls would help
Let's hope they work it out- we can't afford to lose an 11v11 team. There aren't that many of them out there right now. Every team goes through issues- they'll figure it out.
NJ Wildcats 12-1 over Rage today in EDP game. Way to keep it classy coach TN.
8:30You're not new to PDA, you're the guy that just got booted from the team. Nice try though
Yaa you tell um! So many tough people in soccer today. Oh funny thing is, all the tough people in soccer on on the sidelines.. Parents should just stay home and the girls play soccer.
453pmU have no idea what you are talking about. Please do not comment on PDA if you do not know the whole true story. NO ONE GOT BOOTED FROM THE TEAM.
I agree! Parents are so ruining this game! I heard parents yelling to check players green cards at a game this past weekend! We live in the greatest country in the world, but some of us should stay away from competitive events if you can't stay positive! Please your an embarrassment to the sport, and sadly to your children!
I would say if the referees controlled the games from the opening whistle things would be better. The fact that one week you have Ref that knows a push from behind is unacceptable and the following week it's ok to slid tackle from behind and that is ok is what leads to most of the yelling on our side lines. Give it time. I have older kids who play also and the referees get better. Unfortunately the younger kids get the worst referees and it truly hurts the game.
NJYS Championship Series Quarterfinals...SJEB East at Brick AngelsPDA Lyon Blue at Jackson WolvesFreehold Flash Blue at MiddletownJPS at HibernianAll games to be played before 10/19/14Good luck to all teams
Was looking at some edp results. Really PDA 10-0. Real classy.
To pay all that money & not face competition seems like a waste of time as well as money. Wildcats never beat a team 12-1 before EDP.
Wildcats also not playing in top bracket....12-1 hope they enjoyed that win no class there...
Not going to help them recruit when that club already has a bad reputation.
Wildcats Club has a terrible reputation just ask the older age groups.
The problem is not with the wildcats winning 12-0. The problem is with Edp letting any team that writes a check join. There are many other lopsided games so far in this age bracket and we are only a couple of games in. At this age and level of soccer teams should not have to give mercy.This is not Rec anymore. I also blame the club for entering their girls in Edp when they must have known they were not ready for this.
Look who is playing in the November Howell tourney:http://www.gotsport.com/events/teamlist.asp?eventid=39688&showall=trueI think Howell is 11 v 11. It would be nice for some of the elite MOSA teams, or southern Jersey JAGS teams to sign up and test themselves.I have forwarded this to our coach(MOSA premier)...
There is no excuse for winning 12-0. It is very easy to control the score of games when talent levels are so different. Running up the score shows a complete lack of character and sets a terrible example for the players.
The reason coaches do this in EDP is because the tie breaker is goal diff and there is no limit. Now it forces everyone else to do the same thing which is sad - especially for Rage who is obviously in the wrong league.All EDP has to do is limit goal diff in games to 4 and it will stop. Again, shame on TN for doing this.
So a developmental league is all about winning, if goal differential comes into play! Shame on all who support this garbage.
12:35Your comment makes no sense. Of course it's partly about winning, it's a sport and there's a winner and a loser. The issue is, they should limit goal diff to prevent teams from running up the score.
PDA South is kind of a mess now. Their facility is under major construction, no home games so far this season. Practices are scattered all over the place. Don't look for any teams to be sharp this fall from PDA South. Hopefully when their new complex is finished things will improve.
5:44You CAN'T be serious. Please tell me you're joking. The team is struggling because the fields are under construction? The team is struggling because your best player left at the end of last season, two more bolted for SJEB a few weeks ago and another was booted, sorry I mean "she left". So keep telling everyone you're the up and coming team, if you say it enough maybe you will even start to believe it.
The only team PDA cares about at this age is Lyon. All the other players are just supporting their club financially. That's the reality.
I have a long question comment.. We left our travel team for PDA- my daughter is U8. I know she's young and she may be playing a different sport in two years but for now, she loves it and she is very talented.. Anyway we wanted to go to PDA shore, that folded, so we wen to PDA south, nice coach , terrible parents plus we only had 7 girls on the team so every time we played , there were no subs- that was good and bad. Anyway, we decided to pull her out for now. She will continue to play some travel and I have her enrolled in other stuff like Futsal for the winter. But, what do I do for the spring? Try out for PDA North or for NJ Crush or FCCopa- can someone please give me advice.. Thank you in advance.
You have to do some research and find out what teams are good at this age if she is a good player you want to to play with good players so she can grow and get better..PDA north is hard to say no to expensive but the north is good PDA south and shore are there to support the north....nj crush puts good teams out...the barons have good training but hit or miss on teams being good..u should contact a few clubs and take her to a practice to see what she likes and see how the teams are..at u-8 ur looking at the training and how good girls are around her to push her
The comment I posted about PDA South and their facility under construction was in regards to the entire organization not just a particular team. Sorry for any confusion. I also agree with the 9/27 12:59pm comment. Look around, jump in some practices, see a game or two. Watch the trainer, and more importantly the parents. Many parents can't keep there mouths shut on the sidelines... You will get all you need to know just by listening. The best teams in the area are VERY tight knit groups. NJ Crush and Barrons, seems to be that way and Voorhees as well. By the way just curious is Voorhees a club team? Keep seeing posts about them but little info. Saw them play in Marlton this summer.
pda barcelona coach shame on you we had a game scheduled for yesterday and you cancel to say your team is not prepared this is un beleveable people have lives and schedules girls look foward to the game ,thanks pda now i see why your team is always talked negative about
It was a Jewish holiday. Show some respect.
So why were the game date and time agreed upon to begin with? Doesn't sound like a lack of respect, but more like a lack of organization.
There were games in all age groups cancelled and rescheduled. Deal with it. It's not all about you. Now go do some dishes and make some dinner. You b*tch.
What the heck is wrong with you calling someone the B word? Bet you're a parent who screams on the sideline telling your kid what to do instead of letting the coach do their job. Or are you sexually frustrated? Either way watch your mouth and stop trying to be a big man behind the keyboard.
Sounds like you should check to see if you havescheduled anything for November 27th. Most standard calendars have holidays on them. Oh. And I say that with all due respect. Calling people names? That's classy. There should be an education level requirement for posting here.
PDA Lyon vs SJEB score 8-0. Seems like EDP teams are not evenly matched.
Relax PDA parent, that was the SJEB B team.
It's a shame that all the talented teams are using 8v8 for a cover up.
Like how PDA parent puts Sjeb and not say it was Sjeb west team...I like to see Lyon vs Sjeb east team..but that will never happen
I'm not a PDA parent but I can guarantee the SJEB east would not win against Lyon. Ive seen both teams play. And you're right.....it'll never happen.
10:34I like how all the UNtalented teams are playing 11v11 when they're not ready for it. A U11 south division team plays the same team 3 or 4 times in the regular season - yeah, that's what I would want for my daughter.
Yes you are right thanks to all the team's running to 8v8 you figure!
Why did sjeb put there "A" team in the weaker bracket?
That's a great question not fair to the b Team A team is a good squad.
Quite frankly why didn't they just put all the 11v11 teams in one bracket? Play each other once and get a taste of each team. I heard through the grapevine there is a parent on sjeb east and a parent on Jersey premier soccer who can't get along and the two teams have been staying away from each other till the dust settles. Whether it's true 100% or not I don't know. Anyone see Jersey Premier soccer play? I hear they have a couple strong players but collectively as a whole they struggle at times.
I think EDP league is crap. Teams need to be more evenly matched for benefit of all. Losing to a team 5+ points and having the winning team pull players and play keep away for remainder of game does t help anyone. EDP should allow better teams to play up a year.
Not sure I know Jps plays the Sjeb east this weekend at EDP cup tourny..u said u seen both teams play and PDA will beat the east u r probably right Lyon is top team right now but when is the last time u seen the east play they r ok they have a strong striker ok mid ok def but that's not enough to beat Lyon yet
Jps lost to Marlboro spirit..I say the east will beat Jps with ease but we will find out this weekend...I like to see underdog win it drives other team parents nuts
My daughter plays in the Sjgsl and we are local to were JPS and Marlboro played so my daughter wanted to stop by and see the game. I have to say jps was very strong the first half. The two goals they did score were pretty much right off the bat. If they could get stronger and not look so tired the second half there may be good things to come for them. Only time will tell I guess. Would love to see them play the barons east. Hoping me and my daughter can get over to see it.
Would be interesting to see SJEB team play Lyon, even as a scrimmage.
It's not like that was a real 8-0 score with Lyon over SJEB. At 8-0 with 20 minutes to go Lyon went to 10players, then 9, then 8 players with 10 minutes to go. Then those 8 were told to practice passing in their own half! It was a possible 12,13 or 14-0 game if they tried...
Who cares if they could have scored more goals. Games that lopsided don't do anyone good. Would be interesting to see the SJEB East team play Lyon. Bet that game would be more competitive!
I agree that the EDP brackets are miss matched. I assume most teams will be in Hammonton this weekend. Looking forward to seeing a few good games. Looking at the schedule for 8v8 where is Voorhees? Does PDA South have two u11 teams? Who's Milan? Teams are coming out of the woodwork is seems!
Per 8:26AM post.... Rumor has it Voorhees did not have enough players available for the tournament. PDA South Milan is their U10 team that plays U11 in SJGSL. This is one of the teams PDA South is focusing on. New trainer this season after the original trainer went two seasons undefeated. New trainer is from across the pond. They will be in EDP next year age appropriate.
Top five in NJ right now, Lyon IMO is above the rest at #1. Next five in no order right now, Crush, Voorhees, SDFC, and SJEB. I'm sure there is some other teams that I just don't know that are very good as well.
PDA Lyon and Voorhees are the best teams in the state flat out. But since Lyon plays 11v11, neither will play for awhile. But to raise an argument PDA Lyon has not won any national tournaments. But, PDA rules clearly state U10 and under are not allowed to leave the state for tourneys. Regardless, it would be a great game to watch. It's difficult to compare both teams.
Voorhees just had a 1-1 game with Crush, and only beat MFA 2-0. I don't think they are on par with those other three right now. Between EDP and the state turney there is lots of very good soccer to go this fall.
If you look at Voorhees's GOT SOCCER site it will show Voorhees does not score many goals. Most scores are 2-0, 3-0 etc. Look at the goals against ratio, one of strongest in the region if not the country. The defense on that team is a wall! The team has only one game since 2012 that the team was scored upon 3 times! No need to run up scores. No need to play pass around. I'm sure Voorhees would love a chance to play PDA on 8v8! That whole team would say bring it I bet.
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.
Going to be a great weekend for soccer!! Cannot wait for some of these showdowns. SDFC Galaxy v. Voorhees should be great to watch. Both are undefeated this season in EDP league play. Looks like SDFC puts a lot of goals on the board. Voorhees has a great defense system, but lacking on goals this season. I think this game will be close. Whoever wins this game will win the CUP. Crush should beat Hamilton, but I don't think they can beat SDFC or Voorhees, even though they tied them earlier this season.
Predictions for this weekends State Cup semis?
State Cup predictions:8 v 8?11 v 11?
Make your own predictions.
PDA Lyon Blue 1 - Brick 0Middletown 6 - JPS '04 0
Hamilton Wildcats 4 - NJ Crush 0SDFC Galaxy Yellow 1 - Vorhees 0
Surprised by the Hamilton/Crush score. SDFC won it all. That team is really playing well. Like that coach a lot.
Middletown 3 PDA Lyon Blue 0.
SDFC and Middletown played in EDP cup - result decided in PKs. Good game by both teams.
Who won in the pks
I believe it was SDFC after 6 PKs
Middleton was the better team yesterday, too bad their parents again overshadowed the girls play by screaming for a red card every time one of their players went down. Embarrassing actually.
Sdfc played Hamilton Middletown played pda In case it wasn't clear
Yes. Two different sets of comments going on here. Some about the SDFC game versus Middletown a few weeks ago (the PK reference) at the EDP tourney and some about the finals Sunday where Middletown played PDA Lyon Blue and SDFC played Hamilton.
The PDA goalie took out a Middletown player on breakaway, no attempt at the ball. A penalty kick was given and converted, however, the ref blew the call, it should have been a red card and a penalty kick, at the very least a yellow card. Please know the game if you are going to post on a blog. Thank you
Never saw a red card given in an eleven year old game. Grow up buddy. It sounds like you won the game and were awarded a pk. Just shut your mouth. I did respect Middletown not anymore.
Middletown parents are probably the worst out there...they def overshadow their kids. It's not right. Their kids have talents. Let the talent price itself...keep your mouths shut.
You follow the rules when playing soccer. You don't get to pick and choose which ones you want to follow. If you don't want to follow the rules, don't play. Sounds like alot of people are very bitter....I hope you find what makes you happy in life and stop trying to live through your children...it's sad
PDA Lyon lost? I thought they were unbeatable. I'm surprised we havent heard the PDA talking points about how in a few years they will be better, etc. The parent bashing is usually the 1st step. Enjoy Middletown!
It was actually PDA Lyon Blue that lost to Middletown
Laughing at someone for being a caring parent when their child is hurt is sad. What is wrong with people when you ridicule humanity. This is a physical sport, injuries happen but there is still room for compassion and understanding what another parent must be feeling.
You're right about one thing 1:41, that was a PDA Lyon parent doing the parent bashing. Such a shame that people can't just be respectful to each other on this blog.
Does anyone know the score of SDFC vs Hamilton 8v8 game yesterday?
SDFC won 3-1
I came to the site to see if SDFC or Hamilton won the 8V8 State Cup and I see people just acting crazy. Does anyone know the score of the Hamilton-SDFC game?
Whatever happened to the trfc fire team? They played in jags last season
Fire is now PDA Shore as they bought into but are really the same team just paying more money to be on it with new uniforms. They were eliminated 1st round of State Cup.
PDA shore (I think is mostly made of trfc fire they may have dropped a few & picked up a few) lost in pk's in state cup to Middletown. I wonder how those parents feel about their choice to move/merge over to PDA????
"PDA Lyon lost? I thought they were unbeatable. I'm surprised we havent heard the PDA talking points about how in a few years they will be better, etc. The parent bashing is usually the 1st step. Enjoy Middletown!"Lets be real. It was Lyon Blue, not Lyon. I think Lyon beat Middletown 3-0 in a 35 minute 1/2 game scrimmage earlier this season.
Lets be real...if not for one particular player, you are just a good team, not a great one..Besides you have the best team money can buy
One player does not make a team. I guess this particular player scored all 32 goals in their 4 wins. Oh and she played defense that hasn't allowed a goal yet. I know there is jealousy out there but please keep it real. Good luck to all.
You are the one taking shots at other teams, acting all high and mighty. You just can't let other teams enjoy their success. Your team didn't even play the state cup, why are you even on this board starting trouble? I am pretty sure your coach wouldn't appreciate your bad attitude towards other teams and other peoples children. I feel sorry for you, that you need to tear others down to build yourself up..... Classless.
Not sure what you are referring to? Please explain.
I don't think there is anything wrong with calling out teams with parents who are obnoxious on the sidelines during games.
Especially ones whose parents run on the field.
I just read some of these posts and have a few observations/opinions1. One of the post that references a particular player from PDA and the PDA parent knew exactly who it was and got very defensive..I think the post kinda hit close to home.2. The day PDA beat Middletown in a scrimmage, the PDA parent forgot to mention PDA then lost to the Marlboro Spirit, who then lost to Middletown..Juts want people to have all the facts..3. I see why PDA parents have the rep they have, well deserved. Very sad for the kids.
The same Marlboro team they beat 6-0 in edp?
So scrimmages only count when PDA wins? BTW, you brought up the scrimmages. Just sayin
Ahh, good old youth sports....it really brings out the best in us parents! I’m sure most would agree that there are a number of very high caliber teams in the area that have great young athletes and are consistently in the winning brackets of leagues & tournaments - some town teams, but mostly academy. Even though it’s far from official (underscore “far”), I think the current top 10 teams ranked on the Gotsoccer website pretty much covers them (rank order notwithstanding!!).We are all into sports & competition - that's why you are reading this blog. We see each other regularly while supporting our children throughout the seasons. This bickering certainly doesn’t foster an atmosphere of sportsmanship on the field or sidelines. I love watching my daughter compete as much as the next parent, but some of you need to chill out. Focus on the development of your daughter's skills, comradery of team, and appreciation of the sport. Team/club rivalries will naturally arise and should be fun & exciting to watch. 10 year old soccer is only a game.
PDA Lyon is always looking for a competitive team to play. Contact the team manager and specify the time and place to play. Let the results speak rather than trash talk on a forum. Lyon is a good team that has already lost to good teams. Would be good for their development to lose to more good teams vs playing keep away for half a game. EDP state cup would have been a waste of time for them at 11v11 as they have easily beaten most of these teams already.
The PDA Lyon post is interesting. It says don't talk trash and goes on to talk trash. Another option would have been to split your team and play 8v8 this year. Instead you bucked the trend of playing 8v8 at U11 and find a shortage of competition. That's your fault. I don't accept the we would have won if we entered position, regardless of past results. Part of sports is the underdog sometimes wins. My take is SDFC and Middleton are state champs. They entered the tournament and won.
For better or worse, PDA Lyon has reached a level of play where very few teams are able to compete with them. I personally think that's impressive. I'm not a PDA parent, but I could easily see why those girls are favored going into their vast majority of matches based on past game results. Should they have split to play 8v8? Play up an age level? Well, I guess that's up to their coaches/trainers to decide what's best for them to grow.On the other hand, I also find it impressive that a few town-based teams are able to be spoken about in the same sentence as top state academies. Kudos to Middletown, Vorhees, and Marlboro!
Marlboro?!?! BwahahahahaAre you serious???
They beat Barons East Bwahahaha…......seriously. Don't hate......appreciate!
One fluke tournament when you load up on guest players means nothing. Your 2-2 league record with 6 goals for and 12 against says more about who Marlboro is.
LOL. Keep living in ignorance. Play the best teams before boasting about being the best. Agree with 3:08....shouldn't boast when you have to rely on ringers....
I guess yesterday was a fluke also? Guess Marlboro had a bunch of guest players again huh? Let's face it, it's anybody's game on any give day. Why? Because they are 9-11 years old. Because they are all still learning new things.
"My take is SDFC and Middleton are state champs. They entered the tournament and won."PDA Lyon has beat many state champs even state champs in the age above their own! Fact is PDA LYON has challenged every single team at U11 & U12 and they are playing better than ever right now. EVERY single result this year has involved taking players off the field down to 10 or 9 and taking the goalie out to let her run around.
To bad you can't buy yourself some class
Looks like tons of EDP games this weekend in 8v8 top flight . First place is locked but should be race to finish from 2nd through 4th.....
EDP league will come down to the final games. World Class score vs Voorhees was not as close as it looks. Reports from the game state that Voorhees was over run. Voorhees luster has fallen recently, should be interesting to see what happens with that team in the future. Come Monday we will all see who fought and who gave up.
We all know Pda is on a different level. But please let's not be so arrogant.
Best team money can buy
They should consider entering the Woman's World Cup next year. They might actually have a chance against Cameroon or the Ivory Coast.
They don't have to enter any tournaments, it is a waste of their time. They should just quit playing soccer since there is no chance they can ever lose.
How about PDA north continue to play a year up like they always have. I know if I was spending 3800 for my kid to play soccer I sure as heck would not drive 2 hours here and there to be bored winning 8,9,10 to notta.
3800 please. Do some homework. Stop the jealousy.
The funny thing is that in 3-4 years, 1/2 of the girls on the PDA team won't be on the team anymore. The good players that are playing on town teams or for other teams will come over to PDA and the ones that were kept on the team for financial reasons will be cast aside.
They can't be that good. They're not even a top five team in the got soccer rankings.
Well if got soccer isnt ranking PDA, they aren't even worth discussing. seems like a lot of money to be paying to be on a team that isn't even ranked and not playing the champion teams like Middletown or Voohees. They must be playing all B teams in order to keep their winning streak alive.
FYI The Lyon team does not Chase points and gotsoccer as you no is Not real.The team reaches out on aWeekly to teams to play with no response the team will play anyone Willing to play.Have a good dayPs most teams spend good moneyto play ask copa $$
PDA is not 3800 really why is moneyAlways an issue.All clubs if you doThe math pay their fair share so please let the money issue go boringTo hear the issue All the time.
Are the last two posts some kind if weird lyrical poetry with oddly placed capital letters?
I'm done professor you figure it out?
PDA needs their own blog. With big tournaments coming who is playing in Bethesda next weekend?
People need to stop worrying about PDA. I'm sure they don't care about you.
I agree PDA does need their own blog... Just looked up the Bethesda Adidas Tourney, looks like only team at U11 playing from NJ is Voorhees. Lower Merion is there as well. Two great teams...
Bethesda @ U11 11v11 or still 8v8?
I'm guessing it's 8v8. Besides Voorhees and Lower Merion, there are also HMMS Eagles (PA) and Horsham Dynamite (PA) so you have the top 3 ranked PA East teams playing in the same tourney. Each of the 4 teams above are in different brackets of the top flight so it should make for an interesting final.
I would not call vorhees a top team. They are in fourth place in their division. Numbers don't lie.
How did Vorhees v SDFC pan out. Still looks like 2nd place on down not finalized in the 8v8 1st EDP division. Good competition this fall in this division for sure!
Voorhees v SDFC was not played due to weather.
11/6, 10:29...Are you stupid, ignorant or both?You say that about Voorhees when they had only played 4 games. What's your opinion now? They're in second with one game still to play. And no, I'm not a Voorhees parent
@8:35. Totally agree. Must be a PDA parent. Surprised they aren't on here boasting about their win over U12 NJX.
Voorhees v SDFC was cancelled due to the weather? Was there too much sun?
10 goals in 6 games against average teams. That's nothing to brag about. Beat world class then we'll talk.
Ok, you just answered my question...you're definitely stupid.World Class, SDFC and NJ Crush are "average teams"? Ok palBtw, they lost 2-1 at World Class and tied NJ Crush 1-1. Those scores are sooooooo lopsided, I can see how you made your unintelligent statement. They still have a game left against SDFC.
I hope your children don't see you act this way. They are children. 10-11. That's what's average. Geez these kids are developing at this age. Anyone can beat anyone at any given time. You all act like your kids are going to the Olympics someday. Chill out. Sad part is I hear this crap on the sidelines allllllll the time. It's disgusting how parents talk about other people's kids and those kids hear it. Grow up folks. This is why kids quit or in your words are "average" because they hear it and think they will never succeed. How about everyone throw some positive comments out there instead of putting little kids down. Pathetic.......
Like I said beat world class.
This forum is a bad reality show. You know it is garbage but it can be hard to look away.
Regardless of the perceived level of competition 50 goals+ scored and 0 allowed is ridiculous for PDA Lyon.You have to remember teams like Vorhees and SDFC will only dilute their concentration of talent when they get to 11 v 11 but PDA seems to accelerated their concentration of talent - so to say - by just pulverizing teams on huge fields.
Stop it, there is literally no competition in that division. That is such a joke
There is no competition in this age group period.
There might not be enough competition for you, but if you're a 10/11 year old girl, there's plenty. The problem is the 8v8/11v11 transition. In EDP, only a small percentage of teams have decided to move to the big field in U11, most have decided to stay 8v8. With such few teams in the two 11v11 divisions, it might have benefitted to have only 1 division consisting of 9 teams. This way a team gets rolled by PDA only once and the rest of the division can benefit from the different competition.It will be interesting to see which 8v8 teams decide to go big field next year - or maybe even next season.
PDA Lyon is very very deep. The absolute last best forward/midfielder on the roster could be the best goal scorer on Vorhees for instance. Not one single player on SDFC will come to tryouts and then start for Lyon at U12.
I really hope this is not a real PDA parent. If it is, I have a good feeling for who it is. I am a real PDA parent and think we are good, but so are many other teams. Crush, sdfc, and vorthees are all very strong too. Vorhees for being a real town team is awesome. We were beat last year by breakers and have not played many very strong teams yet from other regions. The Midwest teams are usually very big and strong and I'm sure we will see that soon. There are several girls on sdfc that could come and take starting positions on PDA - some people don't understand the game.
Also a PDA parent here. I was in bed by 10 so it wasn't me. No way would a PDA parent post that. We know our team is good but also know it's a long journey. Please understand that we do not go on here and brag. It's being done by a bunch of trolls.
Does pda take many outside players, or do they pull from their b teams?
Yes. Tryouts in the spring. Last year they had about 50. All are welcome.
IThe transition from 8v8 ( small sided) to 11v11 larger field is huge adjustment. This a a huge reason there is not much competition at 11v11. They are in transition they are 10/11 yr old girls learning new positions on a bigger field some w new coaches & new teammates. My daughter plays for a PDA team (not Lyon). Lyon is a top notch team but reality is....they have a year under their belt of playing 11v11. They played up last year. Honestly, I give their coach credit. He got them ready early.
7:25 & 8:10 is the same PDA parent that has been on here for a while & we know who he/she is because you are always talking about this website../
Whoever it is they seem to know a lot about other teams in the age group. Get a life.
