|Brian Ruiz celebrates his decisive goal.
The big winners on the day for the BISERGS were Emmett and Rodrigo who both share Costa Rica and Ecuador. They each scored 7.5 points for the day. That tally put Rodrigo over 5 points clear at the top of the table and his number one pick, Germany hasn't even played in the second round yet. France owners all picked up 5 points for the dominate performance.
Currently four teams have booked their place in the round of 16 and three have been eliminated. Rodrigo may be in first place, but Matt Snyder leads the all important race of getting teams into the next round with an amazing three teams qualified. Rodrigo has two already advancing. Renee and Rick should also be feeling confident with two teams into the next round, although Renee has one team on their way home. Carol Barrera will have a hard time defending her BISERGS crown as she and Andrew are the only two BISERGSers to have already lost two teams.
