This weekend marked the final wave of Sectionals tournaments, as teams earned the last of the bids to Regionals, which kick off on Saturday.
Throughout the week, we will feature Regionals previews in each division as we look ahead to the most competitive tournaments and the biggest upset possibilities.
But first, here’s what happened this weekend:
East New England
Notable Performances: Cambridge’s Garuda played tough against Boston’s Ironside, the USA Ultimate #1 ranked team in the country, losing by only three points. They could play spoiler to Toronto’s GOAT or New York’s Pony, snatching away the third bid to Nationals. Nobody has been talking about this team because their lack of recent results. They had a shot to play at the Chesapeake Invite and test themselves against top squads, but lost a close game to Raleigh’s Cash Crop in the finals of the Chesapeake Open, failing to earn the bid. They are a dark horse — don’t be surprised if they’re challenging teams deep into Sunday at Regionals.

|The Greater Good|
|On The Rocks||Safari|
|Call Me Maybe||Venom|
|Del Sol||The Cub Club|
Notable Performances: American BBQ avenged their Labor Day finals loss to San Francisco’s Mischief with a 14-12 win in the 2nd place game. It may have an effect on seeding at Nationals. The Nor Cal section featured all five teams that earned bids for the Southwest to Nationals, making it a good preview of the more important Regionals battle.
