Troopers Make Finals - First time since 1986

Post by Hostrauser » Fri Aug 07, 2009 4:22 pm

2009 Semifinals scores:
85.9 Troopers
85.6 Colts

Coincidentally...
1986 Semifinals scores:
85.9 Troopers
85.6 27th Lancers

But wait, there's more!
In 1986, Blue Devils were way out in front, winning finals by over a point.
In 2009, Blue Devils are way out in front, winning quarters by over a point.

In 1986, Vanguard finished 2nd, Cavaliers 3rd, and Cadets 4th.
In 2009, this is a possibility.

In 1986, Phantom had an off year and finished out of the Top 6.
In 2009, Phantom's had an off year, and will probably finish out of the Top 6.

:hum:

It's like one of those Lincoln/Kennedy things. :roll:
