Any thoughts on the 15-16's Mideast Power League in Muncie this weekend.  I was at the afternoon wave but was wondering what folks thought about the morning wave as I didn't see any of those matches?  Any suprise teams? Any stand-out players?  Please share your thoughts!!

Afternoon

What did you see in the afternoon wave?  There were some teams in the morning wave that didn't belong in this type of competition.

It's the seeding weekend of the power league. For the next three dates, those teams will be playing each other. The first weekend can be somewhat brutal though...

The top 4 seeds all held serve (KIVA 16s, Michigan Elite 16s, Team Z 16s and Munciana 16s). However, the 5-7 seeds were all upset. TI 16s lost to Cincy Classics 16s in the finals. Lexington United (formerly TEVA) lost to TI's 15s.  The F brackets were pretty interesting. On Saturday, Team Z 16-2 upset Muncie 15s but then Muncie came back on Sunday and knocked off KIVA 15s and got revenge on Team Z to win the group. So after this weekend, the seedings going into the first seeded weekend will look something like this:

1 KIVA 16 Red
2 Michigan Elite 16s
3 Team Z 16 Orange
4 Munciana 16s
5 Cincy Classics 16s
6 Munciana 15s
7 TI 15s

8 Lexington United 16s
9 Team Z 16 Navy
10 TI 16s
11 Mintonette 16s
12 Hoosierland 16s
13 Munciana 16 Aztecs
14 TI 16s

That is a great run down of the preceedings and agreed the first weekend in this format can be quite brutal for many!!  I don't know much about the Michigan team; but, the KIVA and Team Z teams are stacked.  Looking at the remaining top finishers, its a lot of the usual suspects (i.e. Munciana, TI, Cincy Classics), while the Lexington United team has ONE of the better players in the age group!!  Should be an interesting 2nd weekend!! I am truly looking forward to it!!
