Going in GOAT is only ranked 17th by USAU, so they will need a good performance to move up the rankings and secure a third bid for the North East Region. They may have just eeked it out. They beat the # 1 & 2 seeds, finished 4th of 8, but lost 4 of 6 games.

In case you missed it, GOAT has picked up @Morgatron8, Morgan Hibbert, Vancouver Furious George captain and star of the MLU's Vancouver Nighthawks along with fellow Monkey Aaron Liu. The two will strengthen an already strong defensive line featuring, Jonathan Martin, (Martinez), and Geoff Bomber Powell.

Morgan Hibbert about his decision to leave Furious George for GOAT. Here's what he said:
"I think it can be best summed up in that Furious is going in a new younger direction, one that I fully support as there are a lot of young and very talented players coming up through the Vancouver system. However, I would have been the oldest player on the team this year and I am not sure how many more years my body can handle the grind (my permanent injuries are well documented.
GOAT gives me a new opportunity and a new challenge, and the chance to play with a lot of my friends that I have only played with on national teams before. We play this sport for fun and for love and I wanted to try a new adventure before I get to a point where I no longer have that option."
