photos by Seth AustinThe District of Death lived up to it's reputation again last night.  Next year this game will have less impact since At-Large berths will include both of them in most years.  But this is this year and last night's game was intense.  You could see it before the game, you could see it on the field and you saw it after the game too.On March 26th SJP traveled to Oxbridge and came away with the 11-9 win.On that day SJP went 14-10 on faceoffs and last night they went 14-8.SJP goalie Landon Reichert saved 7 of 16 for a .437 save % and last night he improved that to .450.SJP placed 25 shots on goal that game for their 11 goals.  Last night they hit the cage 18 times for their 8 goals.And they held Beau Diamond to one goal that night.Oxbridge turned it over 24 t...

District Brackets – Class 1A – Region 4

Last to be reviewed but certainly not the least as this Region is filled with top programs.  That's the good news.  The bad news is that this Region was hammered by Covid suspensions during the year and the effect of WHEN they occurred is yet to be seen.Six of the top 12 in my last 1A poll are in this Region (on MaxPreps the Region has #1, #3, #4 and #6 in 1A) and 3 are in District 13 and that doesn't count King's Academy, which was Top 15 but was hammered with injuries.  Belen Jesuit is undefeated but had the curse of being in Dade County, which limited some better programs from scheduling them due to County regulations.  Pine Crest started fast and continued all season.  Gulliver faces a challenge too; they also normally played a statewide schedule but had the same issue as Belen.All...

 Barring any major upset the regional final will be the matchup of Jupiter and St. Thomas.  They played earlier in the season and STA came away with the one-goal win at Jupiter, which was the only loss for the Warriors.  Jupiter lost a few big games late in the season due to Covid and STA is coming off their own play suspension this week.  Boca Raton played well down the stretch and will battle Stoneman for that district.In District 13, if there was not a Jupiter there, you would have a highly competitive District, with a number of teams that put up good schedules.  Wellington, Palm Beach Central and Dwyer are all competitive with each other but there is one alpha dog around and they go on.In District 14 it is Boca and Stoneman and right now both are capable.In Distric...

The Rematch Sees 2A #2 Jupiter Take the Sweep with the 13-8 Win Over 1A #2 Benjamin

photos by Paul KabalinA 'beloved' rivalry continued last night in Jupiter as the Warriors slayed the Buccaneers for the second time this season, riding a 4-goal 90 second scoring burst in the 2nd quarter to the 13-8 win.  Jupiter leveraged the faceoff battle into the extra possessions that kept Benjamin from mounting any serious rally in the 2nd half while clinically finding holes in the Benjamin defense for a number of inside goals.The latest edition of this rivalry was played in an environment that was quite different from other renditions, as the limited attendance, combined with the cavernous stadium, carried a theatre-like feel to it, as portions of the game found the fan bases sitting quietly until the game prompted a response, mostly via a goal.  This game usually draws big audi...

AH-Plantation Grinds Out the 10-5 Win Over Columbus!

The more the season goes on the more an interesting trend has emerged.  Many schools were geared towards winning in 2020 and when that didn't happen due to the shut down there were teams that were left exposed for 2021 since their benches did not gain experience.  Some schools were hurt by players opting out.  The smaller squads have meant more wear and tear on the 2021 squads and injuries are up noticeably according to coaches I talk to.It's created an interesting dynamic according to a few . . . younger players leapfrogging into slots that in the past were not common.  Last night, after the game, Columbus HC Cody Morrissey told me he had graduated SEVENTEEN kids from last year.  AH-Plantation HC Chad Moore had SIX OPT-OUTs before the season started, off a team that was built for 2020, ...

Jupiter Christian Pulls Away in the 4th for the 12-7 Win over Palm Beach Central

 photos by Seth AustinJupiter Christian broke open a close game in the 4th with a four-goal run to end the game, as the extra faceoffs won by JC's Jackson Worcester (20 for 22 on the night) led to Palm Beach Central's defense wearing down late in the game.Usually a game is won by a combination of things but in this case the faceoff edge led to other issues and truly was the deciding factor.  Jupiter Christian put an astonishing 26 of 30 shot attempts on net, including 9 of 10 in the final stanza, as the fatigue gave Jupiter Christian plenty of close in looks.  PBC only took two shots in the fourth and the one that hit the net pulled them within one with about 8 minutes to go, but time of possession after that was lopsided as PBC had to chase and defend each lost faceoff. ...
