We choose 1997 and 1769 as our alliance partners. In the Quarter final matches 3172 won against the 2nd Seated alliance, moving us on to the semifinals. In the Semi-finals our alliance was up against the third seated alliance. Their Alliance captain was SWAT 1806. Our alliance Lost the first match, but during the second match 3172 realized this was the last shot at being able to move on. HorsePOWER won the second round giving us a tie breaker match. We left the field with our heads held high that night, 1806 had beaten us 90 to 119 points and we could have never been more proud. HorsePower are we ready to roll!
