Franklin Division Elimination Matches:

After our late night practice on Friday, we were ready for the playoffs. The playoffs consists of two alliances with three teams per alliance. We had chosen team 4140 Fish in the Boat and team 5096 Monkey Madness for our alliance partners. For the first series of matches of the day we were up against the four seed from the Franklin Division: 2753 Team Overdrive, 3486 Techno Warriors Advanced, 3509 Phoenixtrix.  We won the first match 306-201 with our alliance partner team 5095 and then won the second match 235-165 with our alliance partner team 4140. Our alliance then played in the Franklin Division finals against the third seeded alliance from our division: 4530 Infinite Resistance, 4546 SnakeBytes, and 3531The Short Circuits. We also took this section of the playoffs in two matches winning the first match 407-205 with our alliance partner team 5096 and then winning the second match 392-170 with our alliance partner 4140.

Da Vinci Division Elimination Matches:

After winning the Franklin Division Finals we were playing the winning alliance from the Edison Division: 3717 Cyberknights, 3846 Maelstrom, and 4855 Batteries in Black. The autonomous mode started and surprisingly, one of the opposing alliances robots didn't move. We carried our advantage from the autonomous mode into the teleoperated period to win the first match 344-165. We then won the second match 251-230 to become the 2013 FTC World Champions!
