Re: Top 15 Teams - 2021

South Coast observations Mater Dei is the most balanced team. They can beat you on the counter, have an emerging dominant center in junior Carter Loth, a terrific center defender in Luke Redoutey and their defense is the most potent. Not too mention they have arguably the best goalie in So-Cal--at ...

Re: 2021 Season

UOP has all but given up on recruiting players from Southern California and this is a huge mistake. This is not true. Finding kids, particularly those from beach areas in OC/SD, who want to live in Stockton isn’t easy. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t making the effort to attract them. Be careful whe...

Re: 2021 Season

Cal 14 Davis 11. Tied after 3 but Cal pulled away in the 4th. Not sure if this was the first game for Valera and Casabella, but they looked good and will be big contributors. Good job by Leyson getting Mescall to call the live stream.

Re: 2021 Season

BTW- I watched UCLA vs Long Beach State game on ESPN+...not sure if UCLA is worthy of the #1 spot in early polling. My early guess is they'll be #3 behind USC and Stanford. Is that because you are discounting the quality of the LBS team? I saw the 49ers play play UCSD a few weeks ago and I saw UCLA...

Re: Fall 2021 Varsity Polls

So a "down year" for a legitimate D1 Pepperdine is "only" #10 in current rankings. A "down year" for USC is going below .500 but still making it to the D1 National Championship game and coming within a goal of eventual winner UCLA. That with Olympians Daube and Vavic b...

The opening win against West Valley (a JC) was an exhibition game.


In case you haven’t noticed, Pepperdine is having a down year. But I wouldn’t expect you to know that.

Re: Fall 2021 Varsity Polls

These early polls are a waste of time. The only polls that matter are post the first tournament, before MPSF, and after. But I’m glad the voters saw fit to move USC into a tie for 1st after beating up on D4 teams. I don't mind being realistic...USC "is" the team to beat. The Huntington Be...

Re: 2021 CIFSS D1 Thread

@Oldtimer, I'm not the expert, but based on the games I have watched over the last 3 months, I don't see HW ranked over HB at all. Unless something has changed, there was a SIGNIFICANT experience and talent gap between those two teams. I think: 1. HB, 2. MD, 3. HW is probably how i'd rank them. But...

If these results are indicative it could be a long season for Pacific and Pepperdine.


Sure looks like it. Pepperdine 11 LMU 10 in OT

Re: 2021 CIFSS D1 Thread

Nobody here knows the exact details but I can pretty much guarantee that the Foothill transfer and the OLu situation are entirely different. If a kid is now playing for Foothill, he is attending classes in person and would be an ex-Azevedo Academy athlete. I’m guessing that the OLu kids were trainin...
