And the penultimate week of the regular season for SQL has drawn to a close! In the first match, the Shooting Stars won a decisive victory over the Dragon Flames and in the second match, the Nimbus 2000s cemented their grip on first place with a come-from-behind win over the Shocking Waffles.
Quite a few people played well this past weekend (I was going to give specific "runner up" shoutouts until I realized that with the exception of Mr. Nobody, literally everyone who played this week deserved one) but in the end, the voting for this week's MVP was unanimous. Let's take some quotes from the voting room:
-"a player, who - at the beginning of the match, gave me a harder time than Cody ... and a player who seemed to play the game of her life today."
-she "started out her regular 'good' game, continued and then, at the end when the pressure was huge, proceeded to improve her game tremendously, keeping the Waffles from scoring."
-she "really stepped it up and played fantastic today and without her I really don't think N2K's would have pulled it out."
Even before looking at the statistics (which show her performing at solidly "pro" level against tough opposition), all of this explains why this past week's MVP award goes to Opal Curare! Congratulations, Kels!
