This is going to be a long hard fought league. Looking forward to it!

Sounds like a helluva fun game. Thanks for sharing.
Absolutely. It was amazing fun. I was on edge the whole time. Props to Solar for being a classy group to play with!

Seems that all of DKSC, Solar, FCD, TSC, Sting Black, and Sting Royal played tightly competitive games this weekend. Texans and Challenge also took care of business.  Albion and Sting Austin didn't get to play, but should both be solid.  The less said about Celtic and CE, the better.

The week 1 results sure point to this season being a competitive battle royale for the 4 Champions League spots and just about anyone is dangerous enough to get a result against just about anyone else.

I agree truthiness it’s great for the leauge and for the girls. This is the way it should be. Happy that all of the top metroplex clubs and teams are playing each other again. We have the opportunity to enjoy watching the hard work everyone is putting in and seeing teams, players and parents we haven’t seen in a some cases a very long time. Best of luck to everyone this season.

Weekend guesses:

Three clear favorites...
Albion comfortably over Classics Elite
Tulsa edges Texans
Solar wins big over Celtic

And three games that I think are tossups:
FCD vs Black
Austin vs Challenge
DKSC vs Royal

The DKSC vs Sting Royal game is the game of the week for me.  A Feet win gets them through two major challengers and in a great early position for securing a CL spot .  A Royal win or even a draw just further jumbles up the top of the table.

FC Dallas vs Sting Black is an important game for both's top 4 aspirations.  Loser will have dropped points in back to back games against CL rivals and, given how competitive things look early on, is likely to rue the slow start come springtime playoff seeding.

Challenge vs Sting Austin. Any south/central Texas team with designs on a Champions League spot are probably going to need to secure 5 or 6 wins against our three southern brethren. A loss or tie here will reduce the margin of error going forward. Challenge took care of things last weekend, and it will be interesting to see how the new and improved Sting Austin stacks up.

Good luck to all and stay healthy.

Sting Austin 2-1 Challenge
FC Dallas 5-0 Sting Black
Solar 14-0 Celtic
Tulsa 1-1 Texans
Albion 1-0 Classics Elite

Not sure if anything is really a surprise at this age and this early in the season, but kudos to Texans and FCD.

Anybody know the DKSC vs Sting Royal score?

Weekend guesses:
Two possible mismatches...
Sting Austin over Celtic
Tulsa over Classics Elite
And two closer games:
Classics Elite should edge Celtic
Tulsa over Sting Austin in a close game

Tulsa with two draws so far (against Solar and then Texans) that went against the prevailing preseason narrative.  We should learn a lot more about the new Sting Austin who earned an important 3 points vs Challenge last weekend.

Classics Elite should handle Celtic, and will need to do so at home in order to avoid a battle for the bottom of the table.

Did Sting Austin get significantly better in the offseason?

Yes. Picked up a good chunk of Lonestar's former DA team. Still integrating and finding their rhythm, but much more competitive than last year.

I would not say the refereeing has been poor (it's been ok), but I am shocked at the dropoff in quality from the DA to ECNL. The DA referees and ARs were excellent. I wonder why ECNL isn't hiring those ref crews, as I assume they are now available?

Did the Texans have a bye this weekend or are they flying under the radar? A few surprising results for the top 3 games above... maybe teams watched film and adjusted.

Weekend guesses:

Challenge -3 Celtic
Solar -2 FCD
Royal -2 Texans
Albion pick'em Tulsa

Tulsa -2 Challenge
Solar -1 Royal
FCD -2 Texans
Albion -4 Celtic

Albion vs Tulsa should be a good one. Albion can establish themselves as a Champions League contender with a win. And we'll find out how real the undefeated starts are for Solar and Texans. I'm guessing it goes well for Solar and much less so for Texans.

Should be a relatively comfortable stroll through central Texas for the Dallas teams this weekend. DKSC needs a pair of wins to keep pace in the hunt for Champions League places. And two must-win games for Sting Black to keep alive any flickering hopes.

My guesses:
DKSC 3-0 Sting Austin
Sting Black 3-0 Classics Elite
DKSC 5-0 Classics Elite
Sting Black 2-1 Sting Austin
