Sponsored by HGR Industrial Surplus and SC Industries, The Untouchables claimed an opening round win over The Gang for Good. In the next round, The Untouchables claimed a decision over The Vikinators.
Next up was a meeting with Dreadnaught, the team that would eventually claim the tournament championship. The Untouchables fell short in that match, and slipped into the consolation bracket to take on Polaris. Again, The Untouchables came up short against on of the tournament’s top teams, ending their run with a 2-2 record and tied for ninth place in the tournament.
