Having lost its first two games against L3M, a joint team comprising students and professors from various French and Spanish universities, and the German Nao-Team HTWK, consisting of graduate and undergraduate students of Leipzig University of Applied Science, the Northern Bites have rallied.
They won a play-in game against Chinese team TJArk, 2-1.
Later, amid a second round of pool play, the Northern Bites tied two other teams, NTU Robot Pal and Team Nanyang, in scoreless matches.
"Things are moving in the right direction," says team advisor Eric Chown.
The Northern Bites need to finish at least second in the pool to advance to the final eight.
