Mesquite, NV (2/17/18)
Day 3 is in the books. The craziest day of the tournament is always today. Teams fight so hard to advance and play their hardest and then more often than not it becomes a waiting game, waiting for other teams to finish playing, trying to figure out tiebreakers, and everything else that goes into advancement, today group play ended.
It was a nice day filled with fairly little wind and lots of good games, check out some games below.
