Week 2 saw the beginnings of what I see as another very competitive season for SHL. We’ve seen 2 teams start to emerge as the leaders of each division, but there are teams that can make some moves to take back the top spot.
1. Pocahontas In Space (2-0, 40 Points) Staying in the top spot is Pocahontas In Space. PIS picked up their second win on the season against Team Xnergy in Week 2. They won all 5 matches and only lost 4 games throughout the series. Week 3 they have a tough match against another undefeated team, Kawasaki Ninjas Rule.
2. Kawasaki Ninjas Rule (2-0, 39 Points) Kawasaki Ninjas Rule are off to a great start in Season 2. They are 2-0 on the season and the leader of the Purple division. Week 2 they took 4 out of 5 matches against The Dog House. Delcevare, Klobbered, Scals44, and Merkin_Pie all scored wins. Inposition lost 2-3 to Dlineman. Week 3 they look to keep up the winning streak as they take have a big showdown against PIS.
3. Defias Henchmen (1-1, 30 Points) Week 2 the Defias Henchmen picked up their first win on the season when they took on Lorewalker Nachos. Captain HockeyBoyz3, Joe_HS, and SmokedSalmon picked up wins in their series with Starden adding in 2 points and KombatWombat adding in 1 point. Week 3 they take on XplosiveSheep who are still seeking their first win of the season.
4. Lorewalker Nachos (1-1, 27 Points) Lorewalker Nachos lost to the Defias Henchmen in Week 2. Captain Josseroo and Jameus were able to win their matches. However AdumbusPrime, Silverwave, and Qbert were only able to score 1 point in their matches. This week they look to get back on the winning track as they face off against The Dog House.

Dlineman won his match against Inposition to remain the only 500 PR player in SHL. Week 3 they look to pick up another win and get back on the right track when they take on Lorewalker Nachos.
