So ... 9 of 12 teams are from SoCal, but you are going to have 2 of 3 CAHA weekends in NorCal + States in Norcal?  🤑

Pretty much what this forum projected.  I think it would have worked out better for the Jr. Sharks if they lost that first game to Jr. Ducks 1.   Jr. Ducks 1 took that route to making the CAHA cut.  Hopefully, the lower ranks improve to make it a competitive season.



Aside from Flyers 1 (clearly the best team), Kings 1 and Wave 1, all of the other teams are roughly equal. Guess now the biggest question will be who will get that 4th spot in the finals. I would probably give a slight nod to GSE but all of these teams have shown to be inconsistent at times. Ducks1 finally found the net but blew a 4-0 lead vs the Sharks in their first game and lost in the shootout, Wave2 just did not look like themselves vs the Ice Dogs but did well in their remaining games, Blackhawks played well but even they had a scare early on vs the Gulls and went down 3-0 to start their game, etc. The one thing you can count on for 13 and 14 yr olds = consistently inconsistent.

Pretty accurate assessment IMO and I was going to post something similar about the Sharks also.  The results might have been better for them if they lost that first game.

With only 4 teams advsncing to next round makes it tough for lower level  still not peaked teams advance.  Really, 3 lost games and your pretty much out.  Like plsydown format, always a few surprises. Let the games begin !! VERY small margin for error  !!

Seems like it ended up being a trade off of more play-in opportunity to sort out bottom bubble teams and less opportunity for solid but maybe 2nd tier teams to play-in to States


Not sure why they couldn't keep both.
