Now that the tournament seeds have been set in stone, among the first round of match-ups, which games are the most intriguing? #12 CR vs. #5 DMA (Winner playing #4 Friends) #11 Charter vs. #6 Archmere (Winner playing #3 Tower Hill) #10 Concord vs. #7 Mount Pleasant (Winner playing #2 Cape Henlopen) #9 Tatnall vs. #8 Polytech (Winner playing #1 Sallies) My predictions are as follow: CR and DMA will be a close game until halftime. CR's team depth and midfield play will show in the second half, where they pull away from DMA and win. Charter and Archmere will be a very competitive game, but the discipline and support of Archmere's offense and defense will be too much to overcome. Archmere wins. Concord and Mount Pleasant looks to be the most evenly matched first round game. These two teams appear to be very evenly matched. The past two seasons they have both gone 1-1 against each other, with Concord winning by 1 last year, and Mount winning in overtime this past Thursday. However, I believe this game comes down to goalie play. And for this factor, I have Mount Pleasant coming out the victor. Tatnall vs. Polytech. Polytech is a very well discplined team on the defensive side. Their goalie is exceptionally good. However, Tatnall has ended the regular season hot, with a win over Tower Hill. Look for a big time statement win from Tatnall. These are my predictions from what I have observed from a very up and down lacrosse season in Delaware. I do not forsee any of the first round winners making it through the second round however. What do you all think? If you all have something else in mind to any of the above mentioned, please feel free to help me account for anything I have overlooked.
