2020 State Cup Predictions & Analysis

I’m there watching games sporadically. Surf tied Blues, not sure if it was part of strategy. Eagles looked dominant 5-2 vs Slammers PA. And Ole looked pretty good winning 3-0 vs Breakers.
 
Albion looked very dominant this morning.
Legends doing their thing with a win. Ole with a bad 0-3 start but after that game was pretty even. Surf dominating the Breakers. Great games so far by some great teams. Out here getting to know all these teams first hand and deciding where my daughter will try out soon.
 
Looks like blues will be wild card #1 if they win as I believe surf will at least match the +3 goal differential. That means blues vs eagles in a quarterfinal matchup and legends vs SDSC in a quarterfinal matchup. Crazy to think 2 of those teams could be out in the quarterfinal because of their luck on the grouping draw. It’ll be interesting to see the final scores from the final games just to see who plays who. But either way legends vs SDSC in a quarterfinal matchup is a tough Tough matchup.
 
Safe to assume they will change the quarter-final matchups since it looks like Surf will play Blues?
I don’t believe they will change it. Which is kinda sad. Blues will play surf and it looks like eagles will play slammers Crowley and both those teams played each other in group play. So it’ll be curious if they do change it. Maybe they swap those games only idk
 
Brackets for quarters seem all screwed up. Something is wrong. I do not see Albion and Legends on there. Last 3 games I saw were the ones at 12:15. Eagles win vs Slammers and I heard one of their best players was not there today from getting a red card vs Hawks yesterday. A fight broke out between 2 little girls yesterday. Blues cruised with their win finishing top in their bracket. Ole vs Surf was the most exciting game to watch. Ole was up 2-1 with 2 minutes to go. #2 from Ole tried to clear the ball bounced on a Surf defender and it luckily goes in for Surf. They sneak in the wild card spot with the tie but Ole was more dominant throughout the game. What an intense match that was.

Yeah my kid was given a red card for that incident and which I don’t fully agree with but it is what it is.

The wildcard results were surprising, but that can happen. Still, no 6 point teams? Definitely not what I expected. The bracket ladder is still goofed up though. I'd imagine Cal South will fix it soon. Congrats to all the teams moving on to next weekend!

Looks like they got it fixed already ...

Due to a system error incorrectly calculating the Wildcards for the G2010/10U flight; following is a list of the 3 advancing Wildcard teams calculated per the published 2020 Cal South State Cup rules:

eThe Presidents G2010/10U Top 3 Advancing Wildcards:

  1. WC 1* - C2 - SD Surf Academy Girls Select 2010
  2. WC 2* - D2 - CDA Slammers-HB G10 Crowley
  3. WC 3 - E2 - MSA FC - Girls 2010
* Per State Cup rule -Wildcards 1 and 2 were switched in the published progression to prevent 2 teams from the same Bracket meeting in the first elimination round.
More games need to be played in order to calculate Wildcard standings or "Auto Advance To Next Round" is turned off.

@Jimmy213 I gotta say you nailed it with that 3rd wild card on your predictions. Pretty good.

Depending on player and the games given this could change the outcome of the tournament. Also isn't the eagles roster depleted at this point?
It definitely had a effect on the outcome of my daughter’s 3rd game. Definitely thought she would’ve given her team a chance at competing for that wc spot but she’ll learn from that incident for the future and won’t retaliate or react to poor sportsmanship. Good luck to both the Eagles and Slammers HB. We’ll definitely be rooting for Legends North to take it tho!

And yes! They had a short bench like the Hawks. Watched them play their 3rd game without subs.
