Our final Elite Eight game matched up #1 seed Gloveworks HD Latex (ILHD)
against #2 seed Gloveworks Powder-Free Nitrile (INPF)
. ILHD had a lot of pressure riding on them considering they are the last Latex team in the tournament. Their Heavy-Duty
style had proved their supremacy over their latex foes, but they couldn’t simply rely on that going up against the seasoned veteran INPF. With their Nitrile Strength
and less-volatile pricing, INPF came in strong and ready to take the bracket. Although ILHD had some fancy moves, establishing their superior Dexterity
, INPF had the stronger defense and resistance. What looked to be a shoe-in for ILHD early on, Gloveworks Powder-Free Nitrile came back with a vengeance and for the upset. They will be going up against Xtreme Powder-Free Nitrile on Wednesday, March 30th in the Final Four.
Winner: Gloveworks Powder-Free Nitrile (INPF)
