Roseville lost their first set and the guy just goes on a poaching and ripping rampage. It plain just didnt look fair. But my friends were probably around 3.0 anyways. They held up well, but lost out in a Coleman(?) style tiebreak.
Here's an explanation of the Coman tiebreak in case you're curious.

Also, I didn't know 2.5 leagues existed. Gee whiz. Considering how easy it is to progress from a 2.5 to a 3.0, I would expect sandbagging to be unavoidable in 2.5 leagues, far more so than in other divisions--where I know it's also rampant for reasons besides unavoidability.
