The mixed division has progressed the farthest in the competitive schedule, with four teams already eliminated through the prequarter round. While most of the favorites advanced, Madison NOISE fell victim to hometown team Durham Toro, who overcame an 0-2 start to the day to make it to quarterfinals. Dallas Public Enemy and Mansfield Darkwing both scored upsets from the bottom position in their pools, and Public Enemy advanced all the way to the quarterfinal round. Philadelphia AMP and Lexington Sprocket are the two remaining undefeated teams, and Minnesota Drag’N Thrust and Ann Arbor Hybrid also won their pools and advanced straight to the quarterfinals. Sunday’s schedule features 8:00AM quarterfinals and semifinals beginning at 10:45AM.
#5 Philadelphia AMP looked the least challenged of any of the top contenders so far. With a comfortable wins over San Francisco Classy and Fort Collins shame., AMP went 2-0 in pool play while on cruise control. In the first-place crossover game, AMP took down top-seeded Ann Arbor Hybrid, cementing their place as tournament favorites even with Henry Ing and Jordan Rhyne not playing. The combination of Linda Morse and Lindsay McKenna are effectively shutting down cutters while Paul Owens might be the best handler cover in the division. With a solid offense built around the throws and guile of Raha Mozaffari and Sean Mott, AMP has so far taken every challenge with a smile and hasn’t lost a game since the windy pool play of the US Open last month.
