Altador Cup XVI: Finals, Day 3

We're in the final stretch of the finals! Better get going on that rank if you're behind!


Three teams are pulling ahead of the pack in the low bracket. Team Moltara swept Team Virtupets yesterday, with particular success from their cheerleaders. Must be something about having to train over the sounds of a volcano...

After two days of success, Team Faerieland's luck began to slip as the Haunted Woods defense consistently intercepted pass after pass just before the faeries could score. At the end of the day, Team Haunted Woods had taken a win in every event but the faerie's best, Shootout Showdown.

Team Roo Island, meanwhile, continues to build up points in the side games to stay in contention for low bracket victory. Team Mystery Island managed a win on the yooyuball field yesterday, but remains near the bottom of the pack overall.


The middle bracket is still as close as ever. Team Maraqua continues to pull ahead after three wins against Team Shenkuu yesterday. The Shenkuu slushie stand was working overtime all day, but unfortunately hydration just wasn't enough to give the rest of the team an edge against Team Maraqua. With particularly significant losses in the cheerleading stadium and on the practice field, Team Shenkuu's hopes of middle-bracket victory are slipping away.


Team Meridell managed to regain a bit of their footing yesterday with two wins against Team Tyrannia. The prehistoric players managed some good scores across the board, however, so don't count them out just yet.

Finally, Team Terror Mountain gave an excellent fight against Team Krawk Island, but a win just wasn't in the cards. With the homecourt advantage in the slushie competition, the winter team grabbed a victory, but the pirates outplayed them in every other event. Team Krawk Island is nipping at the heels of the Maraquans, but they'll need higher scores in the coming days if they want to overtake the leaders.


Over in the championship bracket, the top contenders are still pushing themselves to the limit in the hopes of reaching the top of that podium this year. Team Lost Desert won the first sweep of the trophy bracket this year, against Team Brightvale. With another excellent score in Make Some Noise, it seems Team Lost Desert will owe any trophy they win this year to the powerhouse cheerleaders on the team.

Team Altador's cheerleaders are tight on the desert team's heels, however. With consistently high scores across the board, Team Altador is maintaining its current lead in the finals bracket despite losing a single event to Team Darigan Citadel yesterday.


Last but not least, Team Kiko Lake's energy seems to be flagging. Only one of their scores yesterday was high enough to contend with the rest of the championship bracket, and goalie Erli Quinnock is worried they don't have the stamina in them to fight for the Cup. Team Kreludor didn't take it easy on them, however, but instead took the opportunity to rack up some more points toward their final score. The moon-dwellers certainly aren't out of this race yet, mostly thanks to their incredible team of slushie makers who have, at this point in the Cup, won over a significant percentage of every other team's fans.


It's a tight race for first place, but the top three seem secure. Will they stay that way, or will a key mistake in the final matches upend everything?
