Preview: Richmond WFTDA Division 1 Playoff

Game 4: Friday, 4:00 PM, 3-seed Naptown (WFTDA #13) vs 6-seed No Coast (WFTDA #22)

Despite their relative geographical proximity compared to some pairings on the opening day, these two have never played each other. Naptown will come in hot favourites despite their recent loss to Ohio–a result that seems marginally less shocking with the Columbus team now occupying a Championships berth.

Naptown has a strong history of making it through the North Central regionals to Championships, but are potentially going to lose out on that opportunity as the switch to the Divisional system this year puts them neck-and-neck with Philly for the #3 spot to Champs from this playoffs.

Last year, Naptown stunned many with a better than expected showing against Gotham but they seemed to really struggle to get their prerequisite sanctioned games in this year. A quickly put-together game against Ohio in the dying days of the rankings quarter saved their qualification hopes–but this relatively quiet season means their game play is fairly untested and we might see almost any direction from them in their games at Richmond.

No Coast have kept their play quite local this year, but have complemented solid wins against nearby teams with ambitious bouts against Rocky Mountain and Denver. With their last sanctioned bout over a month ago now, they may well have altered strategy plans, so keep your eyes peeled!
