Re: CIF SS DI Predictions

If I read the calendar right, Mater Dei and Huntington open the CIF SS season in just 19 days, 8-14-2021 at Mater Dei, then play again one week later at HB. I hope we stay on track and get back to normalcy this season. 1. Huntington Beach 2. Harvard Westlake 3. Newport Harbor 4. Mater Dei 5. Loyola...

Re: Huntington Beach

Huntington Beach had the talent to win in 2015 and 2019 to win Division 1....but a lack of execution in critical parts of the game, cost them. In that 2019 semi vs HW, they were right there and at times were outplaying HW, but it came down to the intangibles....Just my opinion, the talent was good ...

Re: Toyko Olympics

I watched an amazing game between Spain and the defending Olympic Champion Serbia. Spain beat Serbia 13-12. One glaring advantage I noticed in what both these teams have over the USA are lefties. Spain has one and Serbia has two...and one of them is 36 years old probably playing his last Olympics. ...

Re: Toyko Olympics

Disappointing game, even with the win. Watching the game you can tell we are a cobbled together super team. We are better than Japan at every position and still almost lose. When we play a team with similar or superior talent, that can play as a TEAM, we are going to get stomped. I know it's the sa...

Re: Toyko Olympics

I think their were a lot of questions about Cupido. I had some reservations given that he took time off while others were playing abroad. I thought he played really well. Dishing off assists and putting away shots when we really needed them. Bowen and Hallock came up big as well. We will live and di...

Re: Tokyo Olympics

USA 25, Japan 4 Maggie Steffens scored 5 goals, giving her 43 Olympic goals. She needs to score 5 more goals to break the women's Olympic scoring record. Ashleigh Johnson, the greatest female goalie of all time, had 15 saves. It seems like this would have been a good game for Amanda Longan to get e...

Re: Huntington Beach

Let's not kid ourselves--they have great talent and their kids have been developed in the Vanguard program--It's been the little things--lack of attention to detail in critical moments of the game/chemistry issues as well--that have hurt them. They should have at least 2 or 3 Division 1 titles in m...

Re: Men's Olympic Draw

USA water polo had to know the rules. The coach had to know. Why not put Jessie on the roster for the first game? His 5 olympics. That may have been the reason he is listed anyway. Japan isn’t exactly known for strong center play. That’s why he is the alternate. He’s been there before. Let the new ...

Re: 16U boys JO's predictions

Maybe for the best early look at HS next year was the elite 8 right before JOs. No graduated seniors and HBHS ran through that group that included MD and HW. If you didn’t see HBHS play this year then you don’t understand just how good those 2 are and are going to be. HBHS had either the best fresh...

Re: 18U boys JO's predictions

Vanguard ran out of gas. They only played 2 subs and both of those guys were from the 16u team that had just won their final (co-mvp's of that final btw). Too tough to compete at that level without a bench. Give credit to CCU as they had all the answers. Have already heard rumblings that the md and...

Re: 18U boys JO's predictions

Curious, how do you suppose Ross was "out-personnelled". Does that just magically happen? I know how private schools out-personnel public schools.... they recruit far and wide. How many of HWs current roster went to school at the Lower School campus for HW? How did MD build their team the...

True


If you think this was a great novel, the sequel was even better. “HB: The College Years”
