Glide-Hustle gang attends Mixed Easterns in Boston

A mixed Glide-Hustle team attended Mixed Easterns in Boston on May 31-June 1. This was the team’s first international tournament, and it was a great experience. The competition was tough, the fields were lush, and the weather was sunny! We went 2-2 on Saturday, going down 15-6 to Wild Card and suffering a tough Universe Point loss to Lionside. We then beat Spawn 12-8 and won our crossover to remain in the Top 16.

After playing four 2-hour games Saturday, our small roster of 16 was feeling the fatigue on Sunday. We went all-out in our first game against 6th-seed (7-Local), but lost 12-10 at Soft Cap. We didn’t have the legs left for the last two games, falling to Lionside and Bam to end up finishing 15th.

We’re looking forward to our next tournament at Comedy of Errors in Montreal where we will be showing up with a full team, ready to compete!
