Based upon the above results, the Legion team was setup to return on 20 Aug 12 and wait on one of the teams in the loser bracket to determine the outcome of the tournament.  On Sunday, the weather got worse and significant amounts of rain was dump on the complex.   After several hours of waiting; the tournament director decided to cancel the remaining games of the tournament due to the inclement weather.
