Some women’s games to watch this weekend …
• I’ll be watching this playoff with interest, the Northeast Women are battling for their Sweet 16 seedings. Boston, Beantown, New York and Keystone all meet in Phoenixville, PA … Beantown, New York and Keystone are all tied 2-1 in the league, but Beantown leads due to points, New York is second and Keystone lacked bonus points and is third. So Beantown plays Boston, New York plays Keystone. All Eagles are also back in play, but these teams are strong without Eagles as well. Goff’s got more here if you have a subscription.
• West Women’s Playoffs this weekend in Austin, TX to determine their three seeds for Sweet 16s … favorites are the Austin Valkyries, Denver HOGs and the third seed is a toss-up. Also, can someone explain why Texas A&M is playing in a senior women’s tourney? Is this a senior team with a college name?
Valkyries (#1) vs. St. Louis Sabres ($5)
Olde Girls (#2) vs. Texas A&M (#6)
Black Ice (#4) vs. St. Louis Sabres (#5)
KC Jazz (#3) vs. Texas A&M (#6)
Valkyries (#1) vs. Black Ice (#4)
Olde Girls (#2) vs. KC Jazz (#4)
Women’s 5th/6th place
Women’s 3rd/4th place
Women’s Championship Match
• Here in the Midwest (YEAH!!), my team has it’s bye, but we’re all watching for the score between the Twin Cities Amazons and Chicago North Shore down in Chicago. The Minnesota Valkyries also are in the Windy City to play the Chicago Women. Results of this weekend determine the final seeds for next weekend’s Midwest D-1 Tournament up in Minnesota. But unless our friends down in Chicago can rally the troops and pull out some kind of miracle to beat the Valks, the seeding will be No. 1 Valks playing No. 4 Wisconsin and the Zons and North Shore playing each other as the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds for a second week in a row.
