We started the tournament with eight teams on Friday and at the end of Saturday, Oswego State and Wheaton (Mass.) had said their goodbyes. Concordia-Chicago and Mass-Boston have joined them, and two more could follow as well before we get out of Sunday.
We started the day with Roanoke defeating Concordia-Chicago 10-3, eliminating the Cougars. An elimination game with all sorts of twists and turns followed, as North Central (Ill.) knocked out Mass-Boston on a walkoff boot. Follow all the action with the links below.

Sitting pretty are Washington & Jefferson and Cal Lutheran. Neither team will be making plane reservations late Sunday night. If either team loses, they will get a Monday contest to decided who will advance out of their bracket. Washington & Jefferson faces Roanoke, with Roanoke staring down elimination, while Cal Lutheran can send North Central home later Sunday night as well.
