Pick Central has tried to iso Royal in the post a lot in the second half, and Hoban has done a great job of taking that away with extremely physical initial post defense and 2nd and 3rd guys digging in to swipe at the ball if not outright going to trap.

I don't think Hoban have a very mentally draining semifinal.
No, but IMO they are the best team I've seen here. They have a lot of length and athletic physicality.

Centerville did not have the skilled length that was a difference maker for them the last two years. In a game like this final, it's clear Pick Central misses Sonny Styles. Last year the physical athleticism they had between the pair of him and Royal put Pick Central over the top. While they fielded really good teams, to me both Pick Central and Centerville had better squads last year than this year.
