Mustard Race and Pointless Trophy
The 9-point master race, more commonly called the 9-point mustard race, is a title bestowed upon a team that manages to win all 3 of their matches in a 4-team group, subsequently earning the maximum possible 9 points in that group. In 5-team groups, commonly seen in 40-team megababby cups, the 12-point mustard race is attained when a team wins all 4 of their matches in their group for the maximum 12 points.
At the other extreme, a team "earns" a Pointless Trophy by losing all their matches in their group for the minimum 0 points, thus rendering their time in their cup completely pointless, in literal terms.
