2018 Stanford Invite : Stevinson, CA – March 3rd – 4th, 2018



Cali Baby!!

En Sabah Nur traveled out west, flying business casual as usual, to San Francisco for this year’s Stanford Invite, a tournament that the team won last year. Due to multiple storms in the Bay Area in the days leading up to the tournament, the tournament site was moved from the Fremont Sports Complex, a short drive from San Francisco, to the backup fields in Stevinson, CA, a full two hours out of the way. The backup fields famously hosted the 2014 Stanford Invite in 30-40 MPH crosswinds. Luckily, this year’s tournament featured much tamer weather than 30-40 MPH crosswinds, but, like Queen City, the weather did not cooperate as well as the team would have liked.

Final: Pittsburgh 11 – Cal Poly-SLO 8

Pool Play: Brigham Young
We faced BYU in its first game on a cold, sunny Saturday morning. BYU has garnered a lot of hype due to consistent play with some statement wins, however they are unable to play on Sundays because of religious reasons. Nonetheless, we played them as they would any other opponent. We broke early to take the lead, only to have BYU come back and break for half to put the game back on serve. Out of half, the teams traded points to 9-9 (games were to 13 all weekend). BYU played a lot of zone to stagnate our O-line cutters and force a lot of passes, but the O-line remained composed. Then the break train came in hot. En Sabah Nur’s starting D-line turned up the pressure and forced BYU into a lot of bad huck looks as the game entered crunch time. On the final four points, we broke four times in a row to win the game 13-9.

Pool Play: California
In the second game of the day, we faced Cal UGMO. In a somewhat sloppy first half for both teams, with 5 total breaks, we broke for half when, for the second year in a row, it started hailing and play was delayed for 30 minutes. After the hail and lightning delay, Pitt came out hot in the second half to take the victory 13-9.

Pool Play: North Carolina
In the final game of pool play, Pitt faced a tough matchup against North Carolina Darkside. In intermittent rain and increasing wind speeds, the O-line struggled against UNC’s tight defensive pressure and we fell into a 3-8 deficit after getting broken out of half. We were able to grind out breaks in the second half, but consistent offense from UNC earned them the win 8-13.

Prequarterfinal: Colorado
Due to the weather delays, prequarters were moved to Sunday morning, when we faced Colorado Mamabird in a rematch of last year’s final. With an emphasis on staying up and keeping energy high for a full game, Pitt played its most complete game of the weekend to win 13-10. Highlights included fifth-year Dillon Tranquillo going full Jumpman and skying a pack of three taller Colorado players for a break.

Quarterfinal: Washington
In quarterfinals, Pitt played Washington in a hotly contested game with a lot of zone thrown as the wind increased. Both lines struggled on offense, with the D-line failing to convert and the O-line stagnating against Washington’s zone. In the end, Washington broke consecutively out of half to take the lead and went on to win 10-13.
