As we concluded our B Division Quarterfinals yesterday, we like to offer our sincere congratulations to the 4 B Division Semifinalists: Chua Chu Kang Secondary School, West Spring Secondary School, Bukit Batok Secondary School, and Tanglin Secondary School.
With that, we are excited to proceed into the A Division Quarterfinals where the teams will be duking it out for the coveted chance to represent Singapore in the League of Legends International Collegiate Championships (LICC).
Starting off we have Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) vs Victoria Junior College (VJC). VJC is back with a vengeance after being eliminated from the quarterfinals last year. VJC is fielding a revamped line up with 3 new members - the supposed dream team that was meant to debut in the previous SGCL but were unable to due to other commitments.
However, it looks like Lady Luck isn’t on their side as they go against the highly feared NYP whom majority of the SGCL teams think will reign champions for their first match. It seems like the classic case of David vs Goliath right now, where even the odds from M1 Pickem reflect the outcome that most would expect from this match up (at the moment, 92.89% in favour of NYP).
Looking at the bracket that they’ve landed up in, It seems like they might have it tough, as most members of our community turned to NYP and Temasek Polytechnic (TP) as the schools who are most likely to proceed to the Semifinals. Looking at the M1 Pick’em Who’s Your Champ Ranking, VJC also stands at the bottom of the leaderboard. As the only remaining junior college representative left in the A Division, it remains up to them to beat the stigma that all they do is study.
However, VJC is not daunted by the fact that they’re coming in as the underdogs. They haven’t been idling around since the previous SGCL - taking their defeat in stride, they’ve been training hard and striving to improve. Finally being able to front their dream lineup that boasts the best players from their school, they’re bursting at the seams to be able to prove themselves to the naysayers.
Will VJC be able to pull off a David? Tune in to http://bit.ly/SGCLLive at 3PM on Jun 11 to join VJC on their SGCL journey.
