DULUTH, MN–Suburbia and Treasure Valley matched up for the second time this weekend. They both won 2 and lost 1 to wind up battling for 5th place. It started as a very back and forth game after Suburbia got four power jams, but after the initial stages they struggled against the solid blocking of Treasure Valley. Treasure Valley’s stranglehold on the game got tighter and tighter as it progressed–and the Idaho team ended up improving on their day-one margin by 100 points, 236-111.
DULUTH, MN–Omaha opened up each day of playoffs with the 10am game and today their strategy really seemed to come together. They put Flash Gloria back on jammer duty, while putting Faye in as blocker; they also took more control of the pack and utilized star passes when their jammers were stuck. Tucson started out strong, but ran into penalty trouble and gave up too many power jam points. Omaha ended their weekend with their first win, 184-138–consigning Tucson to 10th place with a 0-3 record.
