I can fill in the gaps on the Northmont end. No powers and negs were used in the tournament, and bounceback bonuses were in play.
The final eight played out according to seed, with quarterfinal matchups of:
(1) Dorman A vs (8) Pikeville
(4) Chattahoochee vs (5) Dunbar A
(3) Northmont vs (6) Dorman B
(2) DCC vs (7) Manual
In the quarterfinals, Dorman B jumped up 110-10 on us after four questions, but Sam ran off 5 of the next 6 to close the gap to 150-120 at half. We then won on TUs 8-2 in the second half to pull away for a 390-220 win. Sam scored 120 in this match with none of the other Northmont players scoring. (Powers were not used). Northmont had 20 PPB, Dorman B had 18.6.
In the semifinals, DCC jumped up 170-20 after five questions, but again Sam went on a run, picking up 5 of the next 6 to tie it at 210 all after 11. Teams then traded questions through TU 17, with number 18 going dead with Northmont up 10. DCC picked up #19 and 20'd the bonus for a 20 point lead, but Sam picked up TU 20 and we 30'd the bonus for a 360-340 win. Northmont had 25 PPB, DCC had 25.6. Northmont won on TUs 10-9, with one going dead, which ended up being the difference in the match. Again, Sam scored all Northmont points.
The finals against Chattahoochee went the other way, with Northmont jumping up 220-50 after 8 TUs, but Chattahoochee nailed many early buzzes to close it to 260-230 with four to go. The teams traded TUs and 30's on the next two TUs. Northmont picked up TU 19, but only 10'd the bonus and Chattahoochee stole both parts to keep it a 30 point game going to the last TU. Tori from Northmont first-lined TU 20 for her second question of the match, and we 30'd the bonus for a final score of 360-290. Sam scored 80 and Tori scored 20 for Northmont. Northmont had 24 PPB, Chattahoochee had 20 PPB.
Hope that helps- I don't have any details on the other side of the bracket other than Chattahoochee knocked off Dorman A in the other semi.
