Lee Repeats

Category:Uncategorized

Brandon Lee won his second consecutive Junior Joust season finals with a 4-1 score. The 5-round 9-player event was held on March 27, 2021. Brandon becomes only the second 2-time Junior Joust champion in the tournament’s 2.5 year history. 💪💪 Gavin Ebreo, who also finished at 4-1, put him to the test both in their regular round 3 match-up and their tie breaker blitz game to settle the prize. Ryan Archer and the Duarte brothers (Truth and Free) were unable to attend due to schedule conflicts but we look forward to seeing them continue to assert themselves into the mix in the Spring season, which starts in 2 weeks.
