The important improvement in Sallies game, and what separates them from the rest of Delaware is that they have no weak spot. Every player at every position (including all midfield lines) is a strong, confident true lax player (rather than just an off-season football or soccer player) who has learned to play at the top high school level. Perhaps more important is that they play like a team, rarely confused by man-ball decisions and feeding off of each other's triumphs. They covet the ball, expect to find it on the ground when they check an opponent, and are highly disciplined. Sideline coaching is minimal and instruction/correction intended to improve individual and team performance. It is fun to watch them play and it is obvious they are having fun playing. Finally, because they are battle-tested through playing (and losing to) higher calibre teams they will not unravel if they encounter difficulty or a new situation. I look for a continuous running clock for all or most of the second half even in the championship game. For perspective, against Delaware teams (except perhaps CR) they haven't even needed a goalie when their opponent only gets off 10 mediocre shots. I believe their only serious opponent from Delaware would be an all-star team from the entire rest of the state.
