The first of three mixed bids is on the line in the Northwest Regional mixed semifinal. BFG, ranked number 1 after beating Mixtape at sectionals, is the favorite, but remember what Moondog did in 2019?
New York BENT has been left waiting on the wings for a berth at nationals for years, having lost 3 games-to-go in a row in 2019 to miss out. Albany Rebel Rebel beat BENT at sectionals, making this Northeast Regional semifinal game-to-go a spicy rematch.
The mixed semifinals were games to go to nationals at the Northeast Regional. It was no surprise seeing Boston Sprocket, but not many would have picked their opponent to be Boston League of Shadows. League were a frisky team a few years ago, can they steal a bid in 2021?
In a stacked 3-bid men's region, the semifinals are teams' first chance to punch their ticket to San Diego. It's no surprise seeing Portland Rhino Slam! in this game, but the upstarts from Utah, Orem The Killjoys have shown that they deserve to be in the conversation.
