What do you all think? Solar Bates RED.... again or will there be an upset on Turkey week?

curious anyone from Solar 01, I had heard at the end of last season, lots of issues, kids leaving, coach leaving, etc. etc., was that all "forum nonsense"... it sounds like the team is doing just fine.

I'm curious to how good this lil Mexican team is. You don't travel all the way from Nuevo León to not compete. Anyone have insight?

If it happens and we get the opportunity to play the Mexican team. It should be a great game!

Who will win the Texas Cup? Empty Solar 01 Bates.....All is well!

Post by Big Poppy on 10/11/12, 07:52 am

As a proud Solar 01 Bates parent, I would like to set the record straight regarding the previous post.

At the end of last season, we lost some good players that elected to go to other teams (not uncommon). We are all still very supportive of those players and associate with most of the parents.

We signed on (5) five new players that have complemented our team and they continue to grow in our system. Also, the parents of these players are incredible and we have yet to have any drama or in-fighting. All-in-all....this is a very cohesive, friendly and supportive group of parents.

As for our coach leaving.....anyone who has attended our games can see that Jason Bates is still our coach. There was never....ever a issue of him leaving. Not sure that a coach who was contemplating leaving would be 8-1-0 in Lake Highlands at this point....just say'in! Jason is the reason this team has overcome the notion that we would be a "middle of the pack" team this year. Very few people/forum regulars gave us a chance this season.....Surprise!

So to answer your question....YES...it was "Forum Nonsense"

The Solar 01 Bates "Nation" is doing just fine! cheers

Mexican teams are flush with cash, dont ask where it comes from, and are rarely competitive. They travel because they can, actually compete is a different story.

Mexican teams are flush with cash, dont ask where it comes from, and are rarely competitive. They travel because they can, actually compete is a different story.

Might need to clarify that as Mexican girls teams. This girls team at texas cup wasn't competitive, but the Mexican boys teams that came to Puma Cup from Monterrey last summer were ballers, and several won their divisions. Also can't forget Dallas Cup recent years has seen pure quality out of the Mexican contingent (i.e. Tigres).

On another note - I watched the final between Flanagan and Bates. Very interesting tactical game. I'd give the edge to Bates as the stronger team in a one - off game, but it looks like a tourney situation slightly favors Sting who appear to have a tad more depth. Sting came out in a 4-4-2 and played Bates straight up with the wind at their back. It was a very even back and forth game in first half, but Sting's top foward created a matchup problem and Bates D never really adjusted. After she scored and Sting went up 1-0, Flan switched to what looked like a 4-2-3-1 and compacted into his defensive third almost the entire second half with his top forward isolated up top.

That strategy looked doomed from the start as Bates immediately took total control of the game and hit posts and other near misses before finally equalizing 1-1. Sting remained defensive through the end of regulation and 1st extra time period, with their only offense being long counters looking to exploit the speed advantage of their top forward.

With score still 1-1 at end of 1st extra time period, Flan then moved his #2 forward out from central defensive mid back into the attack again and decided to come after the game. An outside mid's long ball clearance from their defensive third ended up in another foot race which Sting's #1 forward won easily before crossing to their wide open recently repositioned #2 forward who slotted home. As much people talk about Bates having athletes, it was Sting's athleticism that won the game, while Bates clearly had the bulk of the possession and lost.

Two very good teams, and it's going to be a fun 2nd half of '01 U12. I think Bates and Sting are a very, very small step in front of 3 to 4 other teams that are essentially even with each other (one of which is Kicks Gold). The teams are close enough, none can reliably call who is going to end up strongest by the end of Spring. State Cup 2013 will be very competitive. Could be 6 teams with legit shots to win.

I believe any reader of this forum would understand the same would not be applied to the Mexican boys teams. Mexican boys are ballers, Mexican girls... different story. There is a reason their youth and national program is peppered with Americans of mexican decent, the females are not supported in that country as they should be.

It was a fun weekend with some good soccer. Hats off to both finals teams, it seems like we know so many girls on all the teams we are always happy for someone in these games. I was proud of the way my DD's team played both Flanny and Bates. Hopefully our young ladies can keep progressing and get into the State Cup conversations!
