All EBAL Final Four Can anyone stop SRV

All EBAL Final Four Can anyone stop SRV

That question was posed by rolax " Can anyone stop SRV in the NCS semis and finals this week". Some say how boring to have an all EBAL final four. Well not to the four participants. it just shows the strength of the EBAL in lacrosse. The Semi finals are being played tonight and the finals probably will be this Friday.

GAME ONE
Amador Valley at San Ramon Valley

Amador Valley 17-4 is the 5 seed and Lax Power now ranks them # 2 in North Cal with a PR of 96.85. In 3 D Rising cited by shorstick in his article on Amador's win over DLS in early March they now rank Amador the 20th best team in Calif with a SOS of 6, OFF 16 and DEF of 4. SRV seeded #1 is listed by Lax Power as number one in the North Coast with a PR of 99.06. They predict a SRV win by 7.

3D rising lists SRV as third in the State behind only SI and Torrey Pines. The Wolves SOS is a 10 OFF 17 and DEF 9. In their prior meeting early in the season played at SAN Ramon the WOLVES WON IT 15-6. Among common opponents the Wolves are 11-0 and Amador is 9-2 The Dons losing to Monte Vista 11-8 and Marin Catholic 9-8. SRV defeated MV 16-4 and Marin Catholic 7-4.

The Amador SOS is a bit light outside the EBAL itself. SRV has Played 3 of the top teams in Southern Cal winning two including a 8-7 win over Torrey Pines currently ranked second behind SI in the state rankings. . The Dons have some good players as their FO Lucas Haverly is the best in the league winning 24 out of 29 in the Dons win over DLS 13-12.The offense looked very good in the 11-8 win over Granite Bay in the quarterfinals. Nonetheless the SRV defense with all 6 Div 1 commits may be the best in the state and the young offense continues to improve. The Wolves have blowout wins over the other two teams in the final four a 17-6 win over DLS and a 16-4 win over Monte vista. Anything can happen in a one game playoff but the Dons will have to play error less ball along with a little luck to win this one. I think LaxPowerr spread of seven is about right.

Game Two

Monte Vista at De la Salle

Monte Vista 15-7 seeded 3 and with a Lax Power 96.29 rating is now ranked by Lax Power as 6 in the NCS. 3 D rising lists them at # 16 statewide with an SOS,9, OFF: 16 Def 6 Lax Power reports the game as a virtual toss up but gives the nod to MV by 1 goal.

De la Salle 17-4 and seeded 2 is listed by Lax Power 96.62 and a ranking of number 3 in the NCS. 3 D rising calls DLS as the 15th best team in California with a SOS of 7 OFF: 14 DEf 7. In their regular season meeting DLS prevailed 7-6 in OT. DLS dominated the second half and all the stats . However they trailed 4-1 in the middle of the third period closed to 5-3 after 3 periods caught up to tie it 5-5 and
DLS scored their 6th goal with less than a minute left to lead it 6-5. However the Mustangs battled back winning the crucial face off and scored to tie it 6-6 with only 15 seconds left to force overtime.

In OT MV won the faceoff but a turnover and a great play in transition provided the winning goal for the Spartans The wild celebration on the field by DLS and the subsequent drubbing of MV 16-4 by SRV should provide an incentive for MV to win this one. However the fact that DLS continues to win games in OT ( 3) and their close loss to SI losing by only 7-5 leaves me to pick the Spartans by 2.

Some major confusion on penalty and possession after a time out confused the refs. REALLY?
