1st match 7a v. Abilene @ LBH: This should be one of those get off the court match quick matches and it won't be too hot at 7a so this not a bad way to start the tourney.
2nd match 11:30a @ LBH v. Wild Valley: It is also hard for me to see this 2nd place Valley team making a dent in Springpark. Not a bad way to start for them and shouldn't be sore at all on Saturday, no heavy drinking on Friday night Mitch, it will get tougher on Day 2.
3rd match 7a @ LBH v. Waco. I know Bill Sanders won Nats two years ago but most if not all of the group is gone. Although they cannot afford to take a team like this lightly.
4th and final flight match:
4p v. Jason Freeman's Houston team @ LBH: This will be a great matchup and I will be shocked if both teams are not 3-0 when they meet each other. If I pick a winner I am just guessing because it all depends on how the lineups fall. The winner of this match has to be the favorite to win on Sunday.
High Point/Somabut (loud cheering, ooooo, aaaaaah) will be competing in Flight IV
Bob's team got the wild card and avoided a tough Houston team but still have to contend with some good teams.
1st match. 7a v. Noho @ Greenhill-Not a bad match to start off with although they are a solid team that will require an early morning Starbucks run for the team. This is one my way to work so I hope to stop by for the ending. They have a big roster but nothing that is making me quake in my sandals except for a few mysterious new self raters and some others mentioned on the Houston blog. This could be High Point's toughest match although #2 is not easy.
2nd match 11:30a v. FW @ Greenhill
This will possibly be the toughest match for the HP boys. FW has more than a few solid players that have done well in sectionals competitions before. I think this will come down to depth which I don't believe FW has but if they can push HP here if the lineups fall a certain way.
3rd match 7a v. Valley @ Greenhill
I think it is toughest on them to get all the way up here but they usually bring the minimum players and are tough to beat. The should be rested on this 2nd day but not sure they can contend with this HP team.
4th match 11:30a v. San Angelo @ Greenhill
If this flight gets tough and all have one loss this is the type of match you want as your final match. If HP needs a sweep they could get it here and if they need to rest players they could also use this match for that reason. Not ragging on San Angelo, I actually went to college there so I have many fond memories and many events I don't remember fully. Go RAMS!!!
I would love to see Dallas v. Wild Dallas final on Sunday and I plan on watching the final, so make sure you guys get there because the odds of me waking up at 6a to drive down and watch the semis are very slim.
Go Big D!!
