I didn't realize it was a Sting Tournament - no wonder the brackets were set the way they were. . .

So question on scoring...they clip the max number of "Goals For" at 5 per game if you shut the other team out?  Looking on the other side, it looks like Goals Against can be the true score?  That doesn't make much sense to me.  Anyone ever see this kind of Goals For scoring before?

FCD Premier scored 7, they show 6
Hilton scored 9, they show 7
SRSA scored 26, they show 10

Max goals for a game, I think is capped at five, for the tie breaker.

Seems like there would be no need for a tie breaker if they went with actual goal differentials.

Does anyone know why Lonestar was not the 3rd wildcard?

Is today the day SRSA becomes beatable? FCD Premier has been having a good run. Solar only won by one in the semi's.

Guess the sun will still come up tomorrow. I saw a few of their games. They are still a great team. But it appears a few teams are starting to close the gap. FCD Premier is definitely seems to be a team on the rise. I caught part of one of their games too. Impressive.

Tight games… Makes me wonder if a certain two Surf Cup players will use the club pass and show up on SRSA sideline when they play FCD Gold and DT South in the spring… on the other hand - it would be out of character for AS to do something like that.

Nice showing by FCD Premier this weekend. I watched them play once and was very impressed, from speaking with a few parents it sounds like they are finally getting healthy. If that truly is the case and made that much of a difference then they are definitely a team to watch out for in the second half of the season.

Man a gold and silver split would have been nice for some of these teams. Nothing like paying all that money and knowing that you have almost zero chance of pulling out a win or even a tie. However in some instances it is nice to simply play another team that you normally don't play but some of the scores were just ugly.

If it hadn't been for a really questionable ref call 30 seconds till the end of the game, DTS would have taken SRSA into overtime in the semifinals. Regardless, it was some pretty soccer. It's a shame they didn't get to fight it out the right way. Spring will be fun.

I honestly expected more goals out of SRSA. I must learn to manage my expectations better.

Not sure I would have called a PK in that situation, but Solar did dominate 98% of the game. DT's goal was a well executed counter attack. Which leads me to your comment "pretty soccer". I've yet to see a team attempt to play anything like SRSA....building out of the back, or really string more than a few passes together with any intent. The kick and run, athletic game power game is as prevelant as ever around here. But its far from pretty.

What I meant by pretty soccer was where SRSA was offensively strong - DTS was defensively strong. It looked like a soccer game of chess. That's my opinion but I think that's why it was a tie until the last minutes of the game.

I have not seen all the teams in D1 play, but there are other teams other than SRSA that are trying to play a possession style of soccer. I will tout Sting Hilton as one that is playing possession with a purpose style and I really like how FC Dallas Premier played this weekend. When we played DT South this Fall they controlled the possession and did not play direct unless the situation dictated it. IMO, whenever you go up against a team at this age that is bigger, stronger, faster and more technical, the weaker teams tend to play kick ball, mainly, just trying to clear the ball out of their defensive end of the field. In the coming years, the possession teams will be able to play the ball out of the back effectively, this does not happen overnight. Yes, you are correct, at this point in time no one will be able to play anything like SRSA but you will see the gap close as the girls get older.

Agree

SRSA parents are the only ones who think no one else plays "SRSA style of possession" but that is false.

You see it with many 03 teams,  the top 04 teams and even some 05 teams now. It is just the case of getting advanced players together early and coaching them correctly.

Sooner than later, all D1 players will be at similar levels of "advanced". That is when ECNL shows up...

What makes srsa a great team is that they play possession in the GAME. Most teams play possession in practice and fall to pieces under the pressure of a real game. The fact that they do it at 10 is fantastic.

Bingo!

It goes back to the old saying: "Play like you practice and practice like you play."

Few teams do that.

That's what's so remarkable is that they have been doing it since they were 6 or 7 years old. There seems to be one group each age group that just seems to get it before everyone else does. I'm sure it's part environment and then part God given natural abilities of the girls.

Other teams will catch up to them eventually because there are so many quality athletes around this area that as teams die out and fade away the top talent will get funneled to the top clubs. At the end of the day you can only put 11 players on the field and if DTS and FCD Prem can play them this close, just imagine what will happen when FCD puts Prem and Gold together for ECNL and Sting pulls from Sting G, Hilton, and all their other teams. It's just the nature of the beast.
