Week 5 Preview

Game of the Week
Bandits Vs Stem – Both teams showed some promise last weekend during the MDT. Bandits have the upper hand after making Monday of the MDT. They beat several decent teams to get there. The younger players of the Stem have played well but need to be more consistent if they want to win this game and improve their record on the season.

Remaining games
Emperors Vs Royals – With only 2 wins on the season, the Royals might have taken a turn for the better during their solid MDT showing. This game vs the Emps will tell if they are going to springboard from the tournament into the season. Tied for 1st, the Emps could use every win possible during a day where they have three games scheduled.
Saints Vs Leland – The first time these two teams met, Leland blanked the Jersey City team. Both teams faced off during the MDT and Leland destroyed their opponent. Will this be a repeat performance for Leland?
Bandits Vs Gold – Gold is coming off another tournament win during their 20th year celebration. Can the Bandits play like the contender they showed this past weekend?
Royals Vs Saints – This is the 4th time these teams play against each other this year. Royals have won the last two games quite easily. The Saints have to be more consistent on both sides of the ball if they want any chance to win this time.
Diamondbacks Vs Stem – Winless after three weeks of the season, the Dbacks are in need to take the monkey off of their back. Last time they played, two runs was the difference between winning and losing.
Ravens Vs Emperors – Ravens are coming off a poor MDT showing. Not making Monday should be enough motivation to do better. The Emps have been playing well and will look to continue their solid play.
Leland Vs Diamondbacks – The Dbacks have their work cut out for them by facing off against one of the league’s elite teams. Leland doesn’t want any slip-ups against any team they should beat.
Ravens Vs Gold – In their first regular season meeting, the Ravens edged the Gold with an 8-7 victory. That’s the only loss the Gold suffered so far during the regular season. Maybe the Ravens can use that particular win to gain some momentum and confidence.

Make-up games (Wk4-May 19th)
Emperors Vs Bandits – Bandits have been struggling but any game is winnable on Sunday. Emps have to make sure they keep their focus and are not looking past the Bandits.
Leland Vs Stem – Leland hasn’t been scoring like they are accustomed to and should be able to post several runs against Stem. Stem will not go down easy.
Ravens Vs Diamondbacks – Now at .500, the Ravens have a chance to go up in the ranks if they can continue to keep the Dbacks winless.
See you on the Blvd!
