    The board is pretty quiet. Just wanted to start a new thread to get updates on how the 05 teams are doing. Seems like the 05's are competitive age group. We have strong teams:

    Thorns
    Quakes
    Placer
    Rage
    WC
    MVLA
    San Juan

    What teams are making a good showing so far?

    The 05's are a stronger age group and its hard to believe there's not a lot chatter going on. Since Surf I've been seeing come really good teams play soccer in the Bay Area. I do believe Socal has a leg up on us but we are hanging in there. Teams are starting to catch up to those more big, fast, and athletic players in the past so the level of play is balancing out. I said this 2 years ago and I'm starting to see the skills and coaching is becoming a huge factor in game results. MLVA, Thorns and Quakes will have good coaching but moving forward your going to see a shift in team results. To answer your question I think Rage, Thorns and I will throwing in Quakes for now are leading the group. Thats 1 ECNL team vs 2 DA teams. Again its early. Local teams are looking strong though.

    SJ Quakes will continue to drop in the rankings because so many of their best players are rostered U15.

    Are these SJEQ NT players all defenders? 0-6 loss is quite a blowout.

    And they recently (Sep 9th) lost 0-2 to San Juan.

    I wonder how the rest of the players/parents on SJEQ will feel if the losses continue. Was the team so dependent on the few NT players?

    SJ Quakes have only one player that plays up with the U15 and she deserves to play up. So its the same team with a few stronger additions.

    There are at least 2 that I know of, with certainty and without naming girls, and I'm not aware of either playing with the NT. This Quakes team is not the same team that was dominant last season. Maybe they're still moving the roster around.

    According to the published U15-DA roster only one 05 is playing up. But to be fair, the NPL EQ team is not the 2005 Academy team that lost 0:1 to Thorns Academy to kick off the season. What is surprising is that the 05 EQ DA team has only 12 full time players rostered as FT players -- at least 2 of whom are new to the program post-tryouts. Where did all of their 05s from last year's team go? Demoted to their struggling 05 NPL team?

    Why don't they just bring some U13s up to the U14 team and try to be competitive?

    It’s the same team but added stronger players and will call up 3/4 NPL players to fill out the roster I would guess. Quakes played well but Thorns added some new additions too. Game could have went either way but I believe Thorns are well coached and disciplined team. Wish we could play them since were ECNL.

    This was the 05 NPL Quakes team. None of the girls rostered full time on a DA team are permitted to play NPL. I believe there are 13 05's that are rostered on DA teams. Remember the days when the top teams in NorCal were all allowed to play each other?

    Makes sense... feels like a different team... not as strong but I like the way they play.
