After two very exciting events, The Riot Crew is in 5th place in the district and heading to WPI for the NEFIRST District Championship.

Our first competition was the Pine Tree District Event held at the Colisee in Lewiston, ME. We started strong and finished the qualifying matches seeded 3rd. During alliance selection for the playoff we were fortunate to get the teams we wanted, Team 133 BERT from Bonney Eagle and Team 3609 The Duct Tape Dragons from the Southern Maine Boys and Girls Clubs. Our alliance swept into the finals but alas we were eliminated by Team 4564, Orange Chaos, from Brewer High. They played a magnificent game and it was fun to watch. We came home with the silver and the Judge's Award.

 

The next weekend we headed to Durham, NH for the UNH District Event. Again we started and finished strong. We were seeded 2cd after qualifiers going into alliance selection for the playoffs. We had a tough decision for our first pick, both 4564, Orange Chaos and 133, Bert were available. We decided to go with Orange Chaos, leaving Bert to select there own alliance partners. We chose team 126, Gael Force, for our second partner. Our alliance performed wonderfully through the quarterfinals and the semifinals. In the finals we were up against our friend 133 BERT. They had an alliance that was a scoring demon. The first match was close and hard fought, unfortunately we came out on the losing end. The second match was truly one for the ages. There were many stacks with containers on top on both sides of the field. The final score 142-141, advantage to BERT. Congratulations BERT! You and your alliance partners were awesome and fun to watch. We are looking forward to seeing and working with you and all the Maine teams at the District Championship. We brought home our second silver medal and the Motorola Quality Award.
