How they got here

Petron and Talk N’ Text took similar routes to the playoffs. Arguably the two deepest teams in the league, both squad had difficulty winning consistently because of issues they’ve had to deal with in the middle of the season.

The Boosters were playing without Alex Cabagnot and Chris Lutz early in the season, but thankfully, Denok Miranda and Ronald Tubid ably stepped into the starting roles.
