In a stunning turn of events, Energy Standard’s 2nd relay was disqualified, resulting in a 22-point swing in favor of London Roar. London is still trailing heading into day 2, however, they are now only 14 points down, with more relays and the all-important skins races ahead. The Aqua Centurions picked up only their 2nd event win of the day, resulting in a nice boost right at the end.
Energy Standard unfortunately suffered a big hit with their B-relay being disqualified, only picking up 8 points. For the London Roar, that was a 22-point swing, yet Energy Standard still has a comfy lead after day one with their previous efforts. Because of the Energy DQ, the Aqua Centurions grabbed their second relay win of the season and now lead over the Iron for third place.
