What is for all real purposes the 2013-14 WFTDA regular season is days away from ending, and the playoff picture is almost clear. The race is over 95% run–fewer than 5% of the year’s rating points are on offer in the next few days, and the amount of movement possible is very limited. So let’s look at how the land lies after last weekend.

Thin Air Throw Down

The big stories of last weekend came from a mile up, courtesy of the Thin Air Throw Down. Windy City and Gotham Girls both travelled to Denver to play each other and both home-town teams.

As expected, Gotham dominated proceedings. They beat Rocky 246-64, Windy 274-77 and Denver 241-124, showing little evidence of any rinkrust from the off-season or any particular hangovers from their unexpectedly close Champs games back in November.

It was a huge weekend on the flat track, with more than 150 games recorded over at the DNN scores page. Most of this was at tournament play, but there were many high stakes division 1 games also played in isolation. Here we take a look at one of the big tournaments over the weekend, and also break down some of the standout division 1 games that happened over the weekend.
