    I have to give you credit. You used this same argument in opposing girls DA, so at least you are consistent.

    I'll just say this. In the youth game it is relatively easy to score as a superior athlete. You just dribble or run past the slower defender and knock the ball in against a defenseless keeper. It takes training to learn how to beat a competent defense - e.g., how to make your runs and how to get a shot off with a defender or two in your face.

    ... And it requires even more training to know when it's a better idea to dish to off to the wide open player on the flank. ;)

    No need to even ask. It's on her public Instagram post from when she committed to Stanford.

    All games are intraleague, so the grand totals for wins and losses should logically match, but your summary shows 126 wins and 102 losses. Not your fault @JoeBieber. None of the wins/losses totals match for ANY of US Soccer's official standings (at least for the SW division): http://www.ussoccerda.com/sam/standings/league/ (GU15 currently shows 31 total wins but only 27 losses; GU16/17 shows 33/27; and GU18/19 shows 31/22.)

    Why the heck can't US Soccer get something as simple as game results correct? Kind of frustrating for a league that is supposed to be youth soccer's gold standard. Or is it "super-uber-premier" standard?

    The games vs the NorCal teams screw up the totals. Some of the teams have already had their NorCal matches, and some have not.

    Ah thanks. I missed that. Please disregard my previous rant. :) I guess that means the SW division is outperforming NW at all age levels so far.

    This is what I was working on when the W/L discrepancy popped up. Here are the total goal differentials (excluding U14):

    Legends FC +45
    So Cal Blues Soccer Club +32
    LAFC Slammers +26
    LA Galaxy San Diego +24
    Real So Cal +13
    West Coast Futbol Club +13
    San Diego Surf +11
    Beach Futbol Club +11
    Los Angeles Premier Futbol Club +4
    LA Galaxy -1
    SC del Sol -2
    Pateadores -11
    Eagles Soccer Club -23
    Albion SC -37

    Cool! Why exclude U14?

    I didn't see a link to the standings/stats for that age group. Is there one?

    Here's another ranking, which is by goal differential per game:

    So Cal Blues Soccer Club +2.67
    Legends FC +2.65
    LAFC Slammers +1.73
    LA Galaxy San Diego +1.41
    Real So Cal +1.08
    San Diego Surf +.92
    West Coast Futbol Club +.72
    Beach Futbol Club +.33
    Los Angeles Premier Futbol Club -.06
    LA Galaxy -.18
    SC del Sol -.73
    Pateadores -1.36
    Eagles Soccer Club -1.64
    Albion SC -2.47

    Blues sneaks up to the top with this ranking. The only thing that is keeping Blues from being completely dominant appears to be its 16/17 team, which is not a surprise as it is made up mostly of 2002 players from a former SCDSL Flight 1 team (not that it's doing poorly, they are still 3-0-1). The other two Blues teams are undefeated and untied and have been beating their opponents by an average of 3.6 goals per game!

    Interesting that clubs that were ECNL and those that were not ECNL before the advent of GDA are somewhat evenly dispersed through the standings.

    Just a weird stat but seems like they lose by 1 goal every game?

    Note that @JoeBieber's stats include U14 and mine only include the 3 oldest teams. So the W-T-L totals for Pats that you would use to compare to my stats would be 1-2-8. In those 11 games the Pats 3 oldest teams scored 12 and gave up 27 for a goal differential average of -1.36 per game.

    Your hunch was not far off base though. Almost half the Pats's games (5) have been 1-goal losses. Their specific results, as of today, are:

    U15: two 1-goal losses and two 3-goal losses
    U16/17: three 1-goal losses and one 2-goal loss
    U18/19: one 6-goal loss, two ties, and one 3-goal win

    Also, in looking back at it just now, I realized I misstyped a few of the goal differentials in my post above. The Pats' goal differential figure is actually -15. The following is the corrected GD ranking:

    Legends FC +45
    So Cal Blues Soccer Club +32
    LAFC Slammers +26
    LA Galaxy San Diego +24
    Real So Cal +13
    West Coast Futbol Club +13
    San Diego Surf +11
    *Beach Futbol Club +4
    *Los Angeles Premier Futbol Club -1
    *LA Galaxy -2
    *SC del Sol -11
    *Pateadores -15
    Eagles Soccer Club -23
    Albion SC -37

    According to the USSDA website, the SoCal Blues U16/17 team had a loss last weekend. A 0-2 defeat to LA Premier FC. Here's the link: http://www.ussoccerda.com/sam/standings/ss/schedule.php?v=3&containerID=NDAwNTE4Mw==

    Is that score an error on the USSDA website, or did they lose that game? I only noticed this because we play LA Premier on Saturday and was looking at their game results.

    Also, who they play makes a difference. Still wondering who specifically set up the schedule.

    So according to @Calikines and @casper many clubs are using gps technology with he “1/02 age group.
    I wonder how many clubs are using this little thing called science to actually improve sports performance versus their eyeball.
    Again Legends sets the bar.
    It’s a shame that no one else is getting that product
