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.





I think you completely missed the point s/he was trying to make. The bracket is competitive in the sense that since there is no true "great" team in that bracket the team that steps up to play will advance to the round of 8.

I'd give the nod to Blaze or Storm, but haven't seen Force or SJ White play this year.

I meant competitive within their own group......so I agree with you.

Yes I agree, any mid ranked Gold team would love to be in this bracket as it's clearly one of the weaker brackets.

My guess is that most, if not all, of those games were only close on paper.

The problem is that “close on paper” will undoubtedly come back to haunt some teams.  

I’m really not a fan of this year’s state cup format.  For obvious reasons, not following the seeding order is annoying.  But, beyond that, I’m not a fan of the whole snake pattern seeding or the fact that it’s set up for only one team to advance from each bracket.  If this were in place last year, one of the two finalists would have never even made it past state seeding.
