Raleigh Phoenix and Chicago Nemesis enter this pool play game 1-2 on the day, having both beaten DC Grit. Each squad hopes for a win to build momentum towards earning a spot in the Pro Championships semifinals.
Chicago Machine seeks to avenge their 2019 club championship and 2021 US Open finals losses to Sockeye. But before they anticipate that matchup, they need to get past a developing Portland Rhino Slam! squad that has put together a strong 2021 regular season thus far.
Northeast Regionals always provides fireworks and the final game of the weekend did not disappoint. New York XIST and Boston Wild Card competed for the third and final bid to nationals. With a raucous crowd leaning in to the ever present NY/Boston rivalry, this was certainly one for the ages!
New York PoNY came into regionals with a chip on their shoulder, having struggled at the major TCT events they attended. Amherst Sprout must have been giddy when they found out GOAT was not playing the series, leaving that third bid out of Northeast Regionals ripe for the taking.
