WED 3/30 (4:45PM) — We’re down to our Final Three. Pretty straightforward here. Please keep in mind, we have our annual LA Showcase tournament on Apr 16-17. We may implement the champion of this division from Dream League to face an equivalent champion from PacRimSports for that weekend. Not sure yet, though.
If One Team One Dream loses this Sun 4/3, we’ll come back and repeat the championship game next Sun 4/10.
FRI 3/25 (12:30PM) — Here’s the updated playoff bracket for this Sun 3/27. You can see that we are in “mini-final-four” mode in the Losers Bracket. Also, the previous graphic had the end dates (4/3, 4/10) wrong. It is corrected here…
WED 3/16 (11:45AM) — In A/R-SJ, we have “The Beast” aka the 11-team playoff bracket (see below). The dates are also included so you can see the plan for the remainder of the playoffs. You can see that the Losers’ Bracket (LB) features high-seed vs low-seed and it could very well change shape a little depending on the matchups, but bottom line is, 3/27 will have a “mini-final-four” (doubleheader for survivors) in the LB.
That means this Sun 3/20, we have 7 teams in the LB and we need to dwindle that down to 2, to be joined by the 2 losers of the Winners’ Bracket from 3/20. Hence, the “mini-final-four” on 3/27 in the LB. To go from 7 teams to 2, we start with the top seed, #3, which unfortunately lost on 3/13. They get to skip what would have been the first game, and on top of that, face the worst seed(s) remaining. Therefore, we have the #10 vs #11 matchup.
On the other side of the LB, we have the remaining four “middle” seeds going at it. Winners will have to face each other and advance. Again, we will have two LB teams left over after 3/20, with the two from the Winners Bracket joining them for 4 total LB teams heading into 3/27.
Incidentally, we’re having our annual LA Showcase tournament on Apr 16-17 in LA, which should not interfere with our Sunday league here; hope you can make it.
