June 2018: 14U Einhorn Earns PGF Nationals Platinum Berth
The 14U PGF National Qualifier in Las Vegas, NV on June 2-3, 2018 featured 64 teams divided into two pools of 32, each with a winner and loser bracket. XP 14U Einhorn won four consecutive games against top competition, allowing the team to avoid the loser bracket’s back-to-back elimination games in 100-plus degree desert heat. The fourth win, a gritty double-international tie breaker, earned XP a Platinum berth default with a shot at Premier, which was unfortunately lost by one point. All athletes made key contributions all weekend with too many clutch plays to list.
