2010 Game

Breakaway Two alliances of three teams compete on a 27' x 54' field with 18" bumps attempting to earn points by collecting soccer balls in their goals. For each ball shot into the goal a team received 1 point. When the robot hung on the tower within the last 20 seconds they would receive two points and if another robot hung from that robot they would be awarded 3 additional points.
