#1 Baby Swinger defeated #16 Sander van der Linden, who put up a surprisingly good fight. I respect all you SvdL voters. Great name, tough odds.
#8 Octavia Sheepshanks had a strong showing against #9 Frostee Rucker, who received a chillier reception than we'd anticipated.
#5 Norman Conquest beat #12 California Amazing Red, a good sign that our readers paid attention in history class.
#4 running back Konockus Sashington flew past #13 defensive tackle Pearlie Graves for a victory.
In another surprisingly decisive matchup, #6 Pooky Amsterdam bested #11 Dr. Twigs Way.
In the biggest upset and by far the closest match we've seen yet, #14 Florence Fabricant squeaked by #3 Koovasky Zapata by a margin of only four votes.
#10 Syndric Steptoe upset #7 Montana Bencomo. Is Syndric a little underseeded? Maybe.
Finally, #2 McWisdom Badejo defeated #15 Baybars Hamzat.
