There’s only 32 team remaining now and this round of the SCT Cup sees teams battle it out in a three round super H2H across the bye rounds. It’ll be a fantastic test of tortoise vs hare strategy. Does the tortoise approach of steady scores across all three bye rounds actually get you a leg up on the alternate strategy of tanking in one bye round before sprinting like a hare through the other bye rounds?
(1) Same Old Same Olds 7 vs (32) Rockliff_Nroll@SCT 29543
Wendy pulled off the upset of the millennium last round in coaching her Rockliff_Nroll to a 3pt upset over the highly ranked, well fancied and incredibly respected Father Dougal. As one of our 7 automatic qualifiers from last year’s quarter finals Wendy’s getting her team sorted and whilst her ranking is unimpressive her Rnd 9 and Rnd 11 efforts to upset someone who is/was eyeing off the overall title shows her team is not to be reckoned with. Could Wendy do it again and topple our new #1 seed? Surely not.
(5) Livers hacks 169 vs (28) Bunchakhuuuunts 5177
The only other remaining quarter finalist is our 2017 SCT Cup Runner Up in Buncha. He’s not bubbling along with the form of last year but he’s shown his credentials with an outstanding effort last year and maybe the byes is where this team will hit its straps.
(9) Capper’s AFLXXX 547 vs (24) TRUDGE TRIUMPH@SCT 1884
The third feature match includes our only remaining wildcard entrant. Whilst the other wildcards have come and gone Capper’s making a better fist of it and has worked his way up to our 9th seed. Impressive effort and enters this H2H the favourite.
