what about a team like Napoleon? they were 2nd place at the JV tournament. they have not been a top tier team for a while, but their JV did beat sycamore & ua and only lost by 2 to sc. Looking ahead on paper it looks like charles is the team again. when you have over 30 kids on a team, with a solid coach you're going to be good.Looking to next year does anyone see a challenge to St. Charles. Although they lose their goalie and several field players, Ward & Sugar return along with a number of varsity contributors. Add a JV that won the McGarity and the Ohio Cup JV and it looks like Gear will just reload for the next couple of years, making them the team to beat. X is the only team with the number of players that St. Charles has but I just don't see them beating St. Charles at the end of the season. Thomas seemed senior dominated as did Mason, Sycamore & St.F. I would expect them to be rebuilding rather than reloading. UA has most of their team back but lose their shooter. They could challenge as their goalie was impressive at times but don't think they have the depth that St. Charles will have. Like this year, the 4th quarter will belong to St. Charles because no one else has as deep a bench and can be as rested in the last quarter. Look at what they did to Mason in the second half of the championship game. From halftime on St. Charles outscored them 12 to 5. I have to believe that fatigue was a factor for the Comets. Kilbourne was young but didn't have numbers. I don't see a challenge from the rest. Other thoughts?
