UPDATE: 2 Dallas teams advance to semis at NAGAAA Gay World Series

It’s getting down to the wire at the Gay World Series.

Of the six Dallas teams in competition, only two — The Dallas Drillers Division C team and the Hidden Door Assault Division B team — advanced to the quarterfinals which take place today, adding three wins to their tallies in Thursday’s play. The Drillers will face off today against the Houston Toros and the Assault against the Twin Cities Frostbite. It was a let-down for the other four teams — Woody’s X-plosion B, Dallas Drillers D and Woody’s Demolition Crew D all lost their games, while Woody’s Wreckin’ Crew C went 1-and-1.

The finals are on Saturday. We’ll have the final results on Instant Tea when we get them!
