GAME OF THE WEEK

#3 Marcos (2-0) VS #4 Victor (1-1)

A battle of the big leagues here. Both teams have the potential of being the highest scorers this week. Will Victor score 130+ points and lose once again? Will Marcos start the wrong players but still beat Victor? Will Katros lose again and go 0-4 this week? The storylines are beginning to unfold, who do you think will come out on top?
