Last night's game against BCH was called an *Exclusionary Game for Reading*
What does that mean? It doesn't count? Is it like a scrimmage? So the coach afterwards was talking about how hard their schedule was this season but did this game ever happen in the eyes of the selection committee?
Correct. Does not count as far as MIAA S8 discussion. I believe the Endowment game does not count either..you know, the one where they gave up 5 against Burlington? Reading will not represent the publics for S8. Burlington will be flying solo in S8 this year. Framinghams tie with X cost them a shot.
So what's this talk about a tough schedule? They beat Archies & X, tied AP maybe their signature win was beating Hingham another non-Super 8 team.
Good but only D-1 North worthy.
Thanks, good explanation. It seems like just another rule adjustment put in place to continue the charade known as the Super 8.
Reading missed the tournament last year for the first time in awhile and I think by 1 point, I'm sure this is why they used the exclusion
