Nationals Tune-up: Regionals and Motown

posted Aug 8, 2010, 9:59 AM by Unknown user
In late July we played two tournaments as part of our tune-up for Nationals in August: Ontario Open Regionals and Motown Throwdown.

We entered Regionals seeded 3rd, but pulled off an upset over #2 ranked Phoenix in our first game, and followed it up with wins over Roy and Too Bad. Our last game of Saturday saw us lose a tight game against GT on universe point. We began Sunday with a strong game against Moondoggies, losing on universe point again. Our last game was a win against Firebird to finish the tournament in 3rd place.

At Motown we had a busy schedule, 5 games on Saturday. We had tight games against OU Club, Spoiler and Lake Effect, but ended the day undefeated at 5-0. Sunday began with a quarters matchup with Haymaker (who entered as the #1 seed). We struggled at times but pulled off an 11-8 win. We cruised through our last two games against Real Huck and Lake Effect to win our second tournament of the year.

These late-season results give us confidence going into Nationals in Sherbrooke. We're coming in ranked 7th, but we given the teams attending we feel like a definite semis contender.
