Having seen 1000 games and all these teams here is what i would go with.
1 Mass Arsenal-Hate the way the play but just win baby, tip my hat
2 Cosmos DA, they are deep and good
3 Beachside-I know from CT but they really play in NY
4 Manhattan PSC- Talented and tough, thought they would beat Mass
5 NYSC- Up and down but can play with anyone
6 FCW DA- Lot's of turnover but a very good team
7 DUSC-Talented but cut below top 6
8 HBC-Still very good but not as tough as past years
8a Bayport-Impossible to score on, but in tough against top 6
10 NY Elite- Boys from up north can play a bit.
I have seen each of these teams over the years and all in the past 12 months as a ref and a parent. It is to the point on any given day any of the above can win. If you don't believe it take another pill...=)
Players move teams, others develop at a different pace, but let's take a look at the last 4 State Cup winners in this age group (NY Only). BWG (now Cosmos), FCW, HBC, Mass Arsenal. Interesting? Your ratings are a bit suspect.
A follow up for manhattan (also 2 weeks without a post this was more fun at u12 when the parents were still crazy. I almost long for POB
Top bracket A so tough total guess
but really if it were exactly inverted would not be shocked.
bracket B, Manhattan got groved here.
4 W Mass
Winner of A over MSC in final.
Eastern over NYSC in Elite
Alleycats over Lagrange, but I have not seen 2 teams (Bays, Penn)
Mount Olive in a romp, what are they doing in this bracket?
see you all at the fields.
