The IWLCA Champions Cup presented By Coast to Coast Clothing Brand returned to the summer tournament scene better than ever thanks to the 237 teams and over 350 collegiate coaches from DI, DII, DIII, and NAIA in attendance this past weekend. Held at the sprawling Maryland Soccer Plex and OBGC Fields in Boyds, MD, this year’s event featured some of the top teams and players from around the country over three days of competition.
Collegiate coaches from all divisions were impressed by the play on the field and were thrilled to be back on the recruiting trails after missing last summer due to COVID. Using the newly integrated IWLCARecruits/EventBeacon platform, coaches were able to evaluate digitally while having access to personalized information about every player.
The IWLCA Tournament Series continues this weekend with the IWLCA New England Cup held at UMass Amherst June 26 & 27.
Some of this weekend’s top players were:
Class of 2022
Molly Jacobson, Mad Dog West Elite 2022, Midfield: Jacobson was all over the field this weekend and made an impact in each area. She won many draws, had a lot of offensive production in the form of goals and feeds, and came up with a lot of caused turnovers on the defensive end. Jacobson does it all and is an all-around threat on the field.
Maddie Luer, Mad Dog West Elite 2022, Attack: Luer is a strong, fast lefty attacker that was a go to player on both ends of the field for Mad Dog West. Her lightning first step and shifty moves help her get around defenders and create openings for teammates.
Abby Roberts, Mass Elite 2022, Midfield: Roberts’ play all weekend long was outstanding as she was dominant all over the field in every area. She won draw controls, scored goals and caused turnovers on the defensive end and throughout the midfield. Roberts is a natural leader and makes an impact no matter the position she is playing.
Class of 2023
Emma & Lily Bunting, SJS 2023, Attack/Midfield: Great athletes who make a tremendous impact all over the field. Between the 30s, Emma rides hard and creates havoc that often leads to caused turnovers. Lily uses her solid stickwork and smooth finishing to put the ball away for South Jersey Select consistently.
Lydia Colasante, All American AIM 2023, Midfield: Colasante is a gritty, athletic midfielder who covers the entire field well and has a killer first step. A feisty player with a nose for the ball, she is involved in every 50-50 play.
Angie Conley, Lakeshore 2023, Midfield: An explosive midfielder with a nose for the goal, Conley impressed coaches throughout the weekend. Conley is an athletic lefty with a great first step who goes hard all over the field.
Lindsey Devir, STEPS 2023, Draw specialist/ Attack: With her next level speed and fluid, smooth stick, Devir is a threat all over the field and on draw circle. She takes it hard to cage and can attack from different areas of the field, making her the ultimate offensive dodging threat.
Lauren Roach, Grit 2023, Midfield/Draw: Roach excels at the center circle and can place the ball exceptionally well. She has great speed, sees the field well, and is a solid two-way midfielder who impacts both ends of the field.
Alexa Vogelman, NXT 2023, Attack/Midfield: Vogelman uses her quick first step and bursts of speed to maneuver through defenses with ease. She has an arsenal of dodges at her disposal and is effective between the 30s.
Class of 2024
Jenna Cardeno, Mad Dog West Elite 2024, Goalie: Cardeno dominated in goal all weekend long with her ability to not only save the ball, but be effective in the clearing game as well. In a weekend full of tough games against great opponents, she only let 16 goals in and had many key saves along the way.
Sophia Dejarnette, Mad Dog West Elite 2024, Midfield: Dejarnette is a very dominant two-way midfielder who is a major threat on both sides of the ball. She won almost every draw she took this weekend and can dominate the middle of the circle thanks to her quick hands and excellent ball placement.
Charlee Nyquist, Lax Maniax 2024 Black, Attack: Nyquist is a dynamic and explosive player who constantly uses deception to be a scoring and feeding threat. A threat from both X and goal line extended, she uses her phenomenal stick work and quick feet to create offense for her team.

LAXU | jucamps
We started LaxU six years ago as a way to allow kids from non-traditional areas to stay in the mid-atlantic region in between tournaments and practice, visit schools and have schools visit them. We determined that for the cost of a camp was about the same as travel costs home and back. Our philosophy: Why not bring the colleges, many of whom are staying in town, to us for a change?
Every year we try to bring multiple universities of ALL LEVELS to our camp. These coaches work in drills with the campers and/or watch the campers to better evaluate them. They all talk to the campers and share what they look for in a prospect.
We also try to visit four or more schools on the trip of varying levels. Getting onto campuses allows campers the chance to see schools and understand the differences between levels.
We take a great deal of time and educate the campers on the Maniax recruiting system. We recommend that all club members take time to educate themselves prior to attending LaxU so the questions can be more in depth!
This year 12% of all D1 programs are coming to LaxU. More may stop by to watch the camp scrimmages which are open to all college coaches each morning. We are also finalizing visits to these programs:
In addition, in the works are scrimmage nights against the Skywalkers, one of the top clubs in the nation. These scrimmages will help us to prepare for the following weekend’s Champions Cup in Richmond.
We hope you are psyched for this year’s LaxU and Mid-Atlantic Tour (We call it the MAT for short)! If you want to follow the camp, check out the social media updates on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vine.
Keep in mind that we are staying at Towson University this year in an air conditioned dorm WITH a linen service provided. Feel free to bring favorite pillows if you’d like! Our practice fields are a short walk from the dorms and the award winning food service is on the lower level of the dorm. They custom cook for those who have eating restrictions.
It’s going to be another great LaxU camp and we are super excited to work with all of the campers on the skills needed to be a college laxer!

Part of the perks of winning the UEFA Champions League is participating in exclusive tournaments like the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

The Best Midfielders Of The 21st Century
Who’s the best midfielder of the century so far?
By the century, I’ll take what you mean since 2000. It’s hard for me to choose one, so I came up with a list but in no particular order.
The versatile and inventive midfielder Andres Iniesta played an essential role in the Catalan side that won the treble in 2009 and 2015.

Leboeuf also claimed winning the Champions League this season is almost impossible for Chelsea.

National Lacrosse League 2013 Playoffs: The Road to the Champion’s Cup | Bleacher Report
(Photo: Richard Olson, nll.com)
The Washington Stealth will host the Rochester Knighthawks in the National Lacrosse League Champion’s Cup final this weekend.
For the Knighthawks, it is the opportunity they have been chasing all year: to repeat as NLL Champions after taking the title last season.
For the Stealth, it is a shot at redemption after missing the playoffs entirely last year.
For the second year in a row, the road to the finals has not been very smooth for the Knighthawks.
In 2013, controversy swirled around the team as a result of an off-court altercation that resulted in several members of the team being suspended. However, they came together as a team in the home stretch and were able to play their best lacrosse when it counted most.
This year the Knighthawks made a preseason trade to acquire transition star Paul Rabil from the Edmonton Rush. When Rabil refused to report, they moved him to Philadelphia in a multi-player deal that saw Dan and Paul Dawson as the key figures coming to Rochester.
Combined with the return of Casey Powell from a year away from the game due to injury, it was expected that Rochester would have one of the best offenses in the NLL. Things didn’t pan out that way, however, and Powell was dealt to the Colorado Mammoth at the trade deadline in exchange for defensive stalwart Jon Sullivan.
Sullivan played in just a single game before being placed on the Hold Out list.
Nevertheless, the K’Hawks finished the regular season with one more win than in 2012, and they are now are just 60 minutes away from taking home the Champion’s Cup for a second year in a row.
On the other side of the country, the Washington Stealth have also had their share of challenges.
After the franchise moved from San Jose to Everett, WA, for the 2010 season, the Stealth immediately rewarded their new fan base with a championship, beating the Toronto Rock. The following year, they went to the Champion’s Cup again, this time losing to the Rock.
But after establishing themselves as having the makings of a dynasty, the wheels fell off in 2012.
Head coach Chris Hall missed a significant portion of the season while battling throat cancer. Without his leadership, the team crumbled, posting a dismal 4-12 record with the second-fewest goals scored and second-most goals against in the NLL. That made them the lone team in the league to miss the playoffs—a situation they never want to deal with again.
With CH back behind the bench for 2013, the Stealth won three of their first four games and finished the season with a 9-7 record and in a three-way tie for first in the West.
The tiebreaker setup in the league pushed Washington down to the second seed behind the Calgary Roughnecks. But having dispatched Calgary last weekend, the Stealth are now in the driver’s seat and playing host to the final game.
Ironically, the Stealth will not be hosting the Champion’s Cup in their own stadium. In one last twist on the road to the finals, Comcast Arena in Everett is unavailable due to a scheduling conflict, so the game will be held across the Canadian border in the Langley Events Centre in Langley, BC.
The action gets underway on Saturday at 4 p.m. PT.

The first medal for Nova Scotia came in the 1975 Presidents’ Cup, winning a silver medal after being defeated by the Edmonton Fullers in the championship.
Halifax Olands played twice in the national championship in 1976 (0: 4) and again in 1978.A 2-3 round robin record in 1978 earned Halifax a bronze spot where they lost to Akwesasne Warriors 14-13.

International Champions Cup | 1xmatch
The International Champions Cup is an annual showcase football club tournament. It has featured prominent clubs from Europe, mainly in the United States and sometimes in Canada, but has expanded since 2015 to include teams from the United States and Mexico, with some matches being played in China and Australia.
The International Champions Cup was created in 2012 by Stephen Ross, owner of the NFL Miami Dolphins, and Matt Higgins, former CEO of the New York Jets. It replaces the World Football Challenge, which is opposed by clubs from the US and Europe.
The match between Manchester United and Real Madrid broke the attendance record for a football match in the United States.On August 2, 2014, 109,318 spectators gathered at the Ann Arbor University stadium in Michigan.
In the first two years, 8 teams took part in the tournament, divided into two groups of four. In 2013, teams did not play against each other in groups, and the winners of the first matches played against each other as well as the losers. Teams with 2 victories each leave the groups. They play in the final of the International Champions Cup. The remaining 3 teams from each group are ranked on the basis of points scored: 2 for a win and 1 for a win after a penalty kick (a draw in the tournament leads directly to a penalty kick, and the continuation is not played, as it is present in all official FIFA and UEFA tournaments), goal difference and more goals scored.When teams from the first group are ranked second to fourth,
In 2014, it was decided that the format of the previous year was not very suitable, and the groups are no longer divided geographically into east and west. The teams in each of them play against each other, and the winners play in the final to determine the winner of the International Champions Cup.
In 2015, the tournament grew, and now, in addition to the USA, matches are held in China and Australia. In Australia, they play for three teams at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, such as Real Madrid, Roma and Manchester City.Three teams also participate in the Chinese edition of the friendly, namely Real Madrid, Milan and Inter, and the matches will be after the matches in Australia due to Real’s participation in both tournaments. The matches in Asia will be held in the cities of Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Shanghai. Most of the teams are concentrated in the American tournament – 10, and matches will be played not only in the USA, but also in Mexico, Canada and even in Italy and England. Each of the teams will participate in 3 matches, with the exception of the three teams from Major League Soccer, which will only participate in 2 matches.Teams in American edition: Manchester United, Barcelona, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain,

How the idea of the Super League was born and who first came up with it – the story of Silvio Berlusconi and his project, how the European Cup died and how the Champions League appeared – April 19, 2021
The Super League is the main word in the world of sports over the past 24 hours. 12 European top clubs have created their own analogue of the Champions League for the rich, UEFA in response threatens to kick them out of the national championships and prevent players from the Super League for the upcoming Euro.In general, all the talk that football will never be the same again and that something terrible awaits us all.
However, exactly 30 years ago, European football was already experiencing a similar revolution – in 1991, the European Cup died and the Champions League was born in a modern format. Distribution of income from broadcasts, the revolution of glamorous advertisements and multi-billion dollar contracts, the group stage of the tournament, the very anthem in the end – all this might not have happened if it were not for the boring first-round match of the European Cup.It was he who prompted the Italian prime minister and Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi to think that football needs a revolution.
It was in the first round of the 1987 European Cup, in which the draw brought Real Madrid with Michel, Hugo Sánchez and Emilio Butrageno in the squad, as well as the legendary Napoli, led by Diego Maradona of the peak. Berlusconi watched the match from the empty Santiago Bernabeu (punishment for the fans’ antics in the previous draw) and was horrified by the thought that as a result of this confrontation one of these teams would end their performances in the tournament.”Napoli” participated in this championship for the first time and was not seeded, so the lot immediately threw him to Real. The Madrid club moved on and knocked out one of the brightest teams of its era in the first stage of the tournament. Berlusconi then realized the entire injustice of the existing competition system and was determined to do everything possible to prevent such scenarios from repeating again. Especially with his Milan.
So Berlusconi was inspired to create the European Super League, yes, his project was called the same as the one being promoted now.Berlusconi was a media tycoon and understood that football is not just a game, but a product that needs to be beautifully packaged and properly sold, there will be demand. Berlusconi was a Milan fan but primarily saw the club as part of his business empire. Silvio made no secret that he was going to use the Rossoneri brand with his media company Mediaset to maximize profits. By then, he had already revolutionized Italian television broadcasting when his unconventional approach to regional stations led to the creation of the private national television station Canal5.
Berlusconi felt that football was not realizing its commercial potential and was not winning over a pay-to-watch audience. Here is what Martin Schuts, a famous European agent, and in the 80s – a journalist who covered the life in Italy of Dutch stars Gullit, Rijkaard and van Basten, says: “Berlusconi was a visionary and clearly understood what would happen in the future. His philosophy was that football is first and foremost a spectacle. ”
Although the idea of the Super League was not entirely innovative: back in 1955, Gabriel Hanot proposed to abandon the playoff format in order to more fairly identify the strongest team in Europe, but at that time, due to problems with logistics, his idea of a common championship was impossible to implement . ..In 1978, Liverpool proposed to create mini-leagues, but it was Berlusconi who suggested the most detailed elaboration.
He commissioned Alex Flynn of marketing agency Saatchi and Saatchi to draw up a detailed plan to get the top clubs out of the European Cup and build their tournament. As well as a marketing monetization system through the sale of broadcasting rights. Finn has already given the 10-Point Football Plan, promoting the idea of a European Super League.
“The idea was based on merit, tradition and television — and therefore it was a league for the big TV markets,” Flynn said.- I think that it would have about 18 clubs, two each from England, Italy, Spain and so on, that was the plan. When someone like Berlusconi has a plan for a breakaway European Super League, even UEFA had to sit down and take notice. The main threat was that this businessman had everything he needed to do what he was talking about. Of course, Silvio was aware of the possibility of retaliatory sanctions from UEFA and FIFA, so he probably just pushed these organizations on a path that will lead to the success of his club and his business. “
Berlusconi’s plans did not come true, but UEFA moved and realized that it was time for a change. The spirit of the revolution was in the air. After the very boring 1990 World Cup, the final realization came that football had to change. The offside rule was changed to give an advantage to attacking teams, and two years later, a rule was introduced prohibiting the goalkeeper from picking up the ball after a pass from his player. This greatly sped up the game.
In 1991, Berlusconi called the European Cup “a historical anachronism”, and also said that the fact that a club like Milan could be eliminated in the first round is economic nonsense.A year later, given the creation of an independent Premier League, UEFA accepted an offer from Rangers General Secretary Campbell Ogilvy to introduce the group stage after the first two rounds. Along with the change in the format of the tournament, a serious rebranding took place – like the Premier League, UEFA relied on marketing, commercialization and sale of broadcasting rights. An anthem for the tournament and a new logo with stars on the ball were invented, and agreements were signed with an exclusive family of corporate sponsors that still appear on the screensavers before the Champions League matches to this day.This is how Berlusconi provoked UEFA to create the Champions League.
At the same time, inequality in the distribution of income from the sale of TV rights was also incorporated. The big clubs from the leagues with the largest TV markets began to make more and more money, gaining more and more political weight. Every year, their incomes grew like a snowball, and the gap between the rich and the poor widened.
The Super League is now offering its participating clubs a solidary payment of € 10 billion.30 years ago, the amounts in the Champions League, of course, were not the same, but every year they increased exponentially. In the 2020/21 season, Champions League clubs will receive payments totaling almost 2.4 billion euros. For comparison, 10 years ago, UEFA spent 583 million euros on this. So the chasm grew between the rich clubs from the Champions League and the rest who did not participate in the tournament and could not count on such payments.
Berlusconi’s arrival at Milan in 1986 was the moment that changed football. Silvio quickly saw the potential for commerce in this sport and, back in those primeval times, launched the idea of the Super League, which is only now hanging over European football as a shadow.In that match between Real Madrid and Napoli, Berlusconi saw not the beauty of football, but lost income. The vision of the Italian media mogul changed football and pushed him on a path from which it seems that it will not be possible to turn off.
And to summarize this story is best with a quote from the very same Alex Flynn, who developed the Super League plan for Berlusconi: “Big clubs will never have enough money, so you can never satisfy their requests, no matter what changes you make.”
