First, congratulation to Alan Abruzzesse's 40+ mixed teams. Dallas advanced his 8.0 and 7.0 teams. Dallas goes 2 for 4 and that is pretty strong. In the quest for 2015 nationals after the first real sectionals weekend, Dallas 2. Austin 1 and Fort Worth 1.
The one time Pimp of the Year has returned to get his crown(s) back. Alan has shown why he is the Mack of Mixed, Ayatollah of Mixed or The Mixed Lord Hummungus himself. He took Voldemort and his cadre and brought home two Mixed Sectionals trophies. I am hoping this is the beginning of the Year of Dallas.
Promise of No More Mixed Talk... For Awhile At Least
With no further adieu, the season is nearing the end. For the most part, the playoffs are set.
5.0 There is nothing to report as Match of the Year is this week between TBar and Lakes. This is a tough one to call but it will likely be 2-1.
Flight A: In the Match of the Week, JCC beat Fretz 4-1. This probably wraps this flight up. LB Houston gets a crack at JCC but they are 7 more line losses behind with more matches to play than JCC.
Flight B: Oak Creek and Lakes are undefeated with their match waiting for the 28th. Lakes still needs to beat last place Fretz. Not much to say until then. Winner to City Championships and loser to QT.
Flight C: Village and Brookhaven each with 1 loss. BH has 2 less line losses but Village has the H2H which comes into play if they are tied at lines. Just have to wait and see. I don't see either teams putting weaker lines out if they can avoid it. They will be trying to sweep.
Flight A: Oasis defeats previously unbeaten Oak Creek 5-0. I still have no idea who this is. Fretz only has 1 loss but unless Oasis gets swept by cellar dweller Eagles Landing, they cannot be caught.
Flight B: High Point has this one wrapped up. They get 2 DQs and still have it wrapped up. Greenhill may have the second best team but they had the bad luck of being put in with the best. I thought High Point could draw their playoff lineups out of a hat and still win cities.
Flight C: Bazan v Bartlett have a battle royale this weekend to determine who wins this flight. Win or go home as loser may not make QT. Oak Creek has runner up pretty much wrapped up.
Flight D: This is one of the most interesting flights. Garland could have wrapped the flight but lost to Oak Creek 3-2. Now, he needs to merely beat TBar. Oak Creek and Royal Oaks are vying too. In the end, Sisk will put out a good line and win this flight.
Until next week...
