This past week, many teams of the teams had to fight to the very end to secure their Holyland Bowl bids. Some of the teams that were in must-win situations to enter the final sixteen and clinched those spots were Orli Print, Cobras, Karelitz, and Bitach. Some very interesting match-ups are set for next week as Big Blue takes on the Chabad Lubads, Maimo Magic takes on the Jew England Patz, Derech Etz Chaim goes up against Karelitz, and Tov Pizza takes on Bitach.
