WFTDA Eastern Regionals
Windy City 94 - Madison 63
Detroit 99 - Minnesota 77
Gotham 139 - Philly 81
Carolina 98 - Providence 55
Yesterday's quarterfinal matchups blew the doors right off Battelle Hall, as the top two seeds were each eliminated in their first bouts. Today, all bets are off. I can't get anybody to make any predictions. The quality of play is very high, and all the teams have *heart* turned up to 11. I'm gonna say something right now to the WFTDA West Region's Texas Shootout qualifiers: don't get too comfortable. If you don't believe me, ask Minnesota and Madison. Western dominance should no longer be assumed... the final four from the East are playing to win.
