Tougher flights? Easier fllights?  

A looks very tough with SRU, Burlingame Rays and Grypons.

D looks challenging as well with Santa Clara Sporting Green, Diablo FC and Placer United red all in the same group.

Other challenging groups in the top flight?

Easier brackets I would potentially put F and E as two of these - some upsets could happen. Stockton is struggling though (zero wins in the CCSL metro gold bracket)

Yes, C, E and F are the easiet groups for sure.  C should be a cake walk for MVLA.  Top seeds in each group should win but on any given day you never know.

Major upset alerts in Group A and B.  Rays pushed SRU to the brink in Stampede (tied 1-1 in regulation) and Gryphons are no slouch for a 3rd team (just tied RAYS, 1-1).  AFA beat Mustang ealier in the year 3-1 and with their prior injuries, who knows what will happen.   It would certainly be a huge upset if SRU or Mustang fail to make it to the top 8.  

Group F is not that great.  De Anza is in last place in premier and the others aren't exactly burning it up in their respective leagues.  The thought that one of these teams making it to top 8 in the absence of let's say RAYS, MVLA Thunder or NB Elite is unfortunate.  

Group H, minor upset alert here.
MVLA Thunder is very defense oriented like Diablo and may actually tie Manteca and give them a scare.  Problem is they can't score so even if this occurs they won't have enough GD to advance.

So what is so easy about bracket E? Davis or Rage? Is everything ok in Rage land? Injuries? Didn't perform that well in Placer?

E only has two premier level teams: Davis and Rage. Woodland is a solid Gold team and Stockton is struggling mightly right now (zero wins in Gold league play). Brackets that have three premier level teams and one very solid fourth team (strong Gold) I would put into the 'difficult' bracket category. If E had the likes of a Diablo FC or a Placer United red team plus Woodland and Davis and Rage then I would have placed that into the 'difficult' bracket category.

Let me re-phrase.  Nothing will be easy.  12/13 year old girls can be very unpredictable.  This is especially true when they are hampered by injuries, sick or playing in bad weather.  

Match ups will also be important.  Some teams just match up better against others and vice versa.

Agreed but clearly there are stronger brackets than others. Anytime you get 3 strong to elite premier teams all in the same bracket it's going to be tough.

The rules set forth by NCP regarding seeding were clearly not followed this season with no explanation other than they are just a guideline and not set in stone.

Flight F  
Force 99G Blue    
Mustang Blaze 99 G    
San Juan Soccer Club Spirits 00 White  
Walnut Creek Storm 99  

Probably the most competitive group.  Any one of these teams could advance.

No way, Blaze and Storm are good but hardly great teams. SJ White is the 'b' team and a mid ranked Gold team - strong but not premier. Several other brackets are much stronger than this bracket.
