While the top seeds all advanced to the bracket after pool play at Stanford Invite, close games proved they weren’t infallible. #5 Stanford Superfly suffered a loss at the hands of #7 Washington Element, while #10 Colorado Quandary never won by more than three, and were pushed to universe by #11 Brigham Young CHI. #2 British Columbia Thunderbirds and #6 Vermont Ruckus appeared most in control with +26 and +20 score differentials, respectively, and are early favorites for a finals faceoff.

2-1?

If you went 2-1 in pool play today at Stanford Invite, you were #14 UC San Diego D-Co, #8 UC Santa Barbara Burning Skirts, Stanford, Washington, Brigham Young, or upstart Cal Poly SLO Motion. Despite the occurrence of the 2-1 records, all pools went to seed except Pool C, where Cal Poly beat Washington, who beat Stanford, who beat Cal Poly. This created a point differential conundrum that left the pool winner (who gets the coveted bye to quarters) up in the air until the last round, where Victoria played Cal Poly. In a back and forth game, Cal Poly surpassed Victoria 9-7, giving Stanford the pool win on point differential.
