After Thursday’s matches, Loy Norrix Esports continued their dominant run through their competitors. Both teams swept to victory, not losing a single game all week. For the Super Smash Brothers Ultimate team, they won both matches 3 to 0 over University of Detroit Jesuit High School. The wins give them a solid hold on 2nd place in their tough division. With a rematch against division leader Midland coming on October 24th, the Knights’ return to form comes at the perfect time. The Loy Norrix Cavalry Overwatch team was also action three times this week, recording dominant wins in two matches against Midland High School and accompanied by a similarly dominant win against Penn Manor High School in Millersville, PA. The Overwatch team hasn’t surrendered a single game yet this season, winning all matches by a score of two games to none. The Overwatch team is next in action against Kensington Woods in Lakeland, MI this coming Tuesday, October 22nd. The match will be streamed live on Twitch. To watch the match, log on to and search for Loy Norrix. If you have any questions about esports, please come see Mr. Greeley in B-13. Let’s go Knights!
