Everyone here talks out of their ass. At the beginning of the season there were people posting how Clarkstown was done in the Fall, how Susa was the next best thing, and how Albertson was overrated. Well, Clarkstown still dominating, Susa was a no show, and Albertson had a very good season. GREAT CALL BOTN EXPERTS!!!
SUSA definitely fell apart and that was realy weird to see but they spread their players too thin. 2007s should have stayed in 2007 teams. Albertson is a good team and going to get better as they had a very good turnout at tryouts from other clubs. Clarkstown did what they do. They won a lot but I wonder what they'd be like without their main super star player. She is amazing.
The girl that scores off the kick-off? Last I heard she was staying.
So, the DA Playoffs are under way. Here is how FC Fury are doing so far (6/25): U18 - DID NOT attend. Girls refused to go because they had Prom and HS graduations. U16/17 - 0-4 loss in first game U15 - 0-4 & 0-2. Shutout in two losses.
In the Showcase division, FC Albertson Fury: U16/17 - Lost 5-1 & 6-1 in their first two games.
With this being the culmination of the season and Coach Caputo having left abruptly before these games, I wonder if Paul Riley made his way down to coach, supervise, and support his teams?
The absentee landlord is still absent. The self proclaimed futsal pro and the guy who coaches the younger girls are out there. Does that make you feel better about your $5k in training fees? I'm sure college coaches are talking to those two guys.
Iâ€™m sure at this point they are spinning it as it didnâ€™t matter because they realize next year There will be one team and that one will be stronger because it will be a combination of Albertson and Fury Players and families thrown Under the bus be damned.
Nope. That won't even be as strong as last year. Several starters have left the Fury team and the many of the Alby Fury girls will go play EDP. Many saw what was coming and just went to other clubs. Many will make up their mind after HS season.
Hopefully, they wouldnâ€™t fall for the the poor reject used car and life insurance salesmen disguised as soccer coaches trying to lure them to come back. Those trainers should maybe switch jobs-, there is more financial upside trying to sell insurance and they now have the experience to do so!
Commack Flash Girls LIJSL Champion Division U16 has roster spots open for the upcoming fall season for girls born in 2004 and 2005. We will hold an open practice for players to attend that are interested. Please contact Andrea Serie at email@example.com for dates/times.
The team will hold one practice per week in the fall and spring, only after HS sports end. No trainer fees. We practice at Burr and/or Smith Lane fields.
No news yet. LISC are speaking with the Federation while at the Summer Showcase this week. So, we should have answer before the end of the month.
What a blow to PR this would be. We all should be rooting for LISC on this one. Talented 03s waiting for the decision
Not knocking the female staff as they are very strong and talented. the question becomes, does LI really need another or should I say have enough talent for another top level team (SUSA, EM, ALBY and LISC?) really? I am very surprised mid to lower level players are choosing not to play high school. MISTAKE! this is about mom an dad puffing out their chests....
