Our first game was against the 1 seed Heva Hevas, and we played with aplomb once we adjusted to their huck game. Player highlights included Tyler cutting like a hoss-daddy and Tang playing some radical horn-dog defense. It was a close one, with us breaking late to force 16-16 universe point. Unfortunately, after a few turns they were able to punch in the winning point. Tough bones -- these bad larrys needed to get back on the horse though. We came out a bit flat against Medicine Men, never really recovering our step and losing by a score of 15 - something.
Last up was the pre-quarters against The Night's Watch, a team we lost to at Boston Invite. The resounding attitude going into this game was "C'mon Laddies." It was quite the showdown, as many of the players have faced each other over the years, and also because we got to spike on Pudge. We went up 3-0 but the Nice Watch battled back. They had some athletic dudes, and the ol' BW-D-Line struggled to reign in those fellas.
