HorsePOWER 3172 attended the Greater Kansas City regional, and took the competition by storm. 3172 was the eighth seated team and was moved up the rankings to become the 7th seated alliance. We chose teams 1997 and 1769 as our alliance partners. In the Quarter final matches 3172 beat the 2nd Seated alliance, and moved on to the Semi-finals. 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 we gave it all we had in the second match. HorsePOWER won the 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 but we could never have been more proud. HorsePOWER is ready to roll!
