Playoffs Week 1 Preview

Round 1

3. Team Feldman (Theory) v. 6. Team Stanaszek (StudentCity) 

3. Team Feldman comes in to the Playoffs as one of the Favorites to take the whole thing.. They missed out on a top 2 seed by just a hair and routinely went toe to toe with the other top Teams in the League.. They dropped their final Regular Season match on Sunday to Team Dorfman in an epic 3-Game affair..  They just might get a Rematch and soon.. The Winner of this one will take on 2. Team Dorfman right after the conclusion of this Round 1 match.. Standing in Team Feldman’s way is of course 6. Team Stanaszek who is looking to go on a Cinderella run.. Crazier things have happened and now that the second season has started, they have a fresh beginning!

 

4. Team Free Agent TWO (Orunje) v. 5. Team Free Agent ONE (Wrigley View Rooftop)

The two Free Agent Teams locked up twice this season and in both cases the Free Agent TWOs got the best of the FA ONEs..  Last Sunday was the most recent example as they battled to a 3-Game match that saw the “Orunje” squad take the W.. It’s very difficult to defeat a Team 3x in a season, especially with groups that are pretty evenly matched.. This has potential to be the match of the day on Sunday.. The Winner will move on to face #1 Team Massel immediately..

 

Round 2

1. Team Massel (Rhoyal Decadence) v. Winner of 4/5

#1 Team Massel locked up the top spot thanks to a perfect sweep of their Double Header on Sunday afternoon.  After defeating Team Stanaszek they were able to topple #2 Team Dorfman in a marathon 3-Game match..  That win locked them into the #1 spot and with it they get to avoid #2 Dorfman and #3 Feldman for Week 1 of the Playoffs..  In this Double Elim. Tourney, you want to put your lives at stake as few times as possible.. They will open the Playoffs on Sunday against the Winner of the Free Agent Team battle..

 

2. Team Dorfman (SLA Insurance) v. Winner of 3/6

#2 Team Dorfman split what was the hardest Double Header of the season on Sunday.. They pulled out the W against 3. Team Feldman 2-1 but then dropped the second match to #1 Team Massel 1-2 in the second match.. It was a Playoff Preview in more than one way.. As the #2 seed Team Dorfman is of course one of the favorites to hold the Crown on May 15 but they will have to play their best..  They are looking at a potential Rematch with #3 Team Feldman this Sunday.. They will face the Winner of 3. Feldman and 6. Stanazek’s Round 1 Match.

 

 

That’s it for this Week. Plenty of VBall left! See everyone Sunday!
