G2010...How is the 2021 season going?

I agree. Defense wins championships. At the World Cup level you see small teams and big teams playing defensively. Teams like Iran did it to Argentina and others. Italy won several championships mostly playing a defensive tactic.

That video shows how lucky the player got to score that goal. It’s not pretty soccer but it works.
I call it a right place, right time goal. Fun seeing such young players battling.

SILVER ELITE
Blues vs. Surf this week. Most of us have these as the top 2 teams in the age group so it should be a fun one. Any video that can be posted will be much appreciated. Here's how I see this going.

Blues- Have been at the top since the beginning four years ago. Usually the most talented team when they take the field, but when they have gone up against opponents equally as talented they usually found a way. Rarely could a team match their toughness (physical and mental), athleticism, and physicality.
Surf- Most impressive team this year and it's not close. Won Surf Cup and Albion Cup, combined 16-0 score line in two league games so far. It seems that there are no chemistry issues with the girls coming together from different teams.

Prediction- We know what the Surf are. This all comes down to the Blues. In a tough matchup can they raise their game like they've done in years past? My guess is "no". For whatever reason this is a different team: Surf 3-0 Blues.

Thoughts?

Surf 5 Blues 0

This isn’t the same team. That’s for sure.

obviously I’m being sarcastic, lol.

I guess Cali Teams are use to playing in Arizona, but playing in Lancaster can be somewhat of an upgrade
i think it’s really a wash at this point. As an individual I wanted us to enter, this I made my pitch to our team when it was asked since it’s our last year as President’s cup and it’ll be national cup next year.

Parents weren’t interested due to a variety of factors: location, lack of new teams (we’ve played most these teams either in scrimmage, league, Arizona or Coachella), the cost of the tournament, tired of paying for travel (looking for a break), there’s already other tournaments available in May after spring league which were already signed up for.

To the kids, I think they’re just happy to play and don’t care if it’s labeled as state cup, league, scrimmage or XYZ tournament.
