Re: ACF Regionals Northeast at Brown (2/18/2012)

Yale A won the tournament in the first game of an advantaged final against Harvard. Stats are on the tournament DB. There are a bunch of 0-0 ties in the 12th round; a bunch of teams surprised us by leaving to catch public transportation, so I marked games in which both teams left as ties.
