The Elite 8 round of Curbed Cup is now complete, and as predicted the tournament has really taken an interesting turn! While the first round was rife with upsets, the second round experienced a mix of both expected wins and underdogs. Here’s how all four neighborhood battles ended:
No. 1 Fishtown soared past No. 9 East Passyunk with 62 percent of votes. Meanwhile, Mt. Airy took the lead over Manayunk, garnering 61 percent of votes.
Underdog Germantown was easily handed a win over fifth-ranked Northern Liberties, taking 80 percent of votes. Tacony also soared past Brewerytown, entering the Final Four as No. 15, the lowest ranked neighborhood to make it to this round.
With that recap, we now present the updated bracket with the Final Four! Next week, there will be two battles ahead: Fishtown vs. Germantown and Mt. Airy vs. Tacony. Like the past two rounds, those two polls will be open for 24 hours.
The two winning neighborhoods will then go after the Curbed Cup starting on Friday, and polls will be open until January 2, 2018.
