It's very humiliating for a team comprised of 25-35 year olds to lose to a team full of 16-19 year olds, regardless of skill level. They will do that to you (I was one of those guys who was 18 playing against 30 year olds), and you just have to fight through it.

Agree 110%....nothing personal to those kids but they're adult leagues for a reason. The majority of adults playing recreational or gentleman's sports are playing because of beer and to get a chance to get away from their wives. A lot of these 16-17 year olds are playing to win because they haven't lost their competitive edge yet. Most of the young hockey players get schooled by the older guys where I come from.
