Default 2019 Boys Bay state League

The bay state league has been arguably the best and most consistent league for a number of years now with teams winning state titles, sectional titles, and making dark horse runs in many divisions

2019 Rankings

1. Wellesley- State finalist last year and return the league MVP and leading goal scorer, but do lose a lot of their core in the midfield and most importantly just lost their coach two weeks ago. Expect them to win a competitive Carey Division Title.
2. Needham- lost in PKs to Wellesley in the South Quarterfinals after an impressive year, they lose much of their backline and midfield but as always they find a way to bring in new and younger players to fill the spot. Expect to win the Herget Division title.
3. Weymouth- up and down year for Weymouth as they struggled to score goals after losing their D1 bound striker for the season. They rerun 15 players and 9 starters from last season which ended in the South Sectional 1st round OT Loss to Wellesley.
4. Newton North- by far the best season theyíve put together in a while but didnít translate to the tournament as they got matched up against league foe Brookline who won in PKs. They lost a number of talented players
5. Brookline- as always they are a very talent and solid throughout the spine of their team. They will have to rebuild this upcoming year but will likely be a low tournament seed who looks to upset teams yet again.

The rest are
6. Framingham- could be improved from a disappointing few years but we'll have to see what they bring in for talent.
7. Natick- was good last year with loaded upperclassmen and will be hurting this year playing in a tough league. Very hard to seen them making the tournament.
8. Walpole- Made a great run to the D2 Finals before running into Nauset. They lose a lot of talent and will struggle to replace the goals and midfield and backline. Always a hard nose team that will grind results. Expect a couple upsets and a lot of ties but the wins will be less than 6 this year.
9. Braintree- similar to last year but could be slightly improved with a younger core coming back. Lacking talent and goal scorers yet again.
10. Milton- new coach after decent success for the last few years. Not much talent. Will be the team who gets beat on week after week.

Top 5 teams this year should be very good and competitive in the North and South respectively but Framingham was young last year and should be improved. Look for them to jump ahead of Brookline and Possibly Newton North

Needham lost many from last years team. It will be Weymouth's season. Needham will need a lot of energy to be on top.
