I am not going to pretend I know all these teams inside and out and some have not been decided quite yet but going off the info I do know here is how I see it going down. I look forward to catching a few matches.
I do believe the DCC champ has a huge oppurtunity to make it all the way to Sunday afternoon, yep Big John, Craig, Mark, David and Patrick I am talking to you, time to step up.
I would consider this flight wide open but favor FW to come out with San Antonio close behind. I like this FW to be very competitive for the national spot on Sunday. San Antonio does have Campos who has been a terror on the tourney circuit and his game as described by most will wear down some players in the summer heat. Wild Austin cannot be overlooked either with some solid players. Don’t know enough about the Valley but last year they almost won a match with ½ a team on Friday so who knows what to expect from that group. Looks like some of the same guys from that 2007 team.
This flight is very tough. Wild Dallas will be a good team unless something goes awry at the DCC. Midland is the same group we played from last year and shouldn’t pose a threat but have some OK doubles players. NETX should have some solid players, not sure if they have enough depth to contend in this flight but they will not be an easy out. Austin is another quality team that could win this flight. Then there is Houston. Only one rep from Houston this year who won last year and there will be tough city championship this year.
I will be ashamed if the DCC champ can’t make it out of this flight. Waco will be tough but past that Dallas should be favored in what looks to be the weakest flight.
Amarillo had a solid result last season and I think I see some of the same crew but I think this flight is an open for anyone to grab it. All these teams are capable although I am not sure this flight winner will be a favorite on Sunday in the semifinals. Are you listening Dallas champ??? You will play the winner of this flight if you can take care of business in flight III. Could we have a Dallas team in the final on Sunday? I hope so.
