Tonight sees the 6v6 Nations Cup semi final between Sweden and USA to decide who gets a grand final appointment with England to fight for their nations honour and the $1234 prize. Delayed by a week due to not having enough players, today is the cutoff point for it to be played, so lets hope both teams can field their best players and give us a show to remember!
Sweden have looked strong all tournament, topping group A with some impressive wins, but once out of the group stages, their opponents gave much closer games. They came up against a strong looking Russian team in the first round of the playoffs – and very nearly came unstuck. Granary was a close affair with Sweden only just edging the win at 3-2, then Gullywash was pushed to a golden cap, which Russia won, ensuring that a third map would ensue. Snakewater was the final map and again went to a golden cap, which Sweden narrowly managed to win. Progression into the Quarter Finals and a match vs Finland was next, and it was very nearly a repeat of their previous match. They won Badlands 5-4, then lost out on Granary to a golden cap situation. Third map decider was Snakewater, and they ended it 6-3, setting up this semi final with USA.
USA managed to top their group as well, despite a default loss in their first game of the season – they brushed aside Norway and Lithuania, booking their playoff place. Spain was their first opponent, and they took the game over 2 maps, winning Gullywash 7-2 and Badlands 5-4. Their Quarter Final game was against a very tough France team which saw USA take Snakewater 3-1, then crumble on Gullywash, losing 2-4. The third map (Badlands) went to a golden cap, with USA winning 5-4 and grabbing their Semi Final spot.
