They def have a skeleton of a team. EMSC 09 been at a few tournaments so far, played them in MA a few weeks ago. Boring kick and run as someone stated above.
That team is seriously lacking talent. Cannot say that I've seen any player that are skilled with the ball their feet.
I'd expect at ECNL competitive level to see girls comfortable at throwing step overs, mathews, elastico, okocha, cruyff-all the skill moves that I've seen in teams we've played at ECNL. Maybe their next ID session they will find girls with these skills before parents pull them out of the sport, get consumed with middle school soccer or go play LAX.
It as if all they teach over there are cuts and kick up the field for the fast girls to chase. The ECNL standings does have them played any games, they must be buying time to build a team as most of the girls from last year left. Interesting season for them if they can manage to prevent players from leaving mid-season, that I think was an issue last year.
We've played 2 games already and are 2-0. Lost some players as well but managed to attract a handful of girls that were playing lower level soccer, but off balanced our best with their skills during team tryouts. If this team can stay together, they will be hard to beat.
