Trine's win combined with Adrian's loss opens up a 2 game difference between the two. Trine is now sitting in a really good position to make the tournament and could all but assure that with a win over Adrian on Saturday. If Trine wins that one, there's a high probability Adrian ends up seeded no better than 4th which means a date with Calvin in the semi-final, fun!. Trine would still need to win on the road at Olivet and Albion, but at the moment they hold a tie-breaker over Adrian with Adrian's loss to Olivet. Adrian has the inside track for the 4th spot since they have no more games with Hope or Calvin, Olivet and Alma both have 2 of those remaining. A win for Adrian Saturday over Trine would give them the inside track to the 3rd seed.
Alma faces pretty much a must win at Olivet on Saturday, a loss there wouldn't eliminate them but it would make it really difficult to reach the semi-final. A win for Olivet would set up what would really be an elimination game for them with Adrian next Wed.
