D1R: (8) Jacksonville Outlasts (10) Terminal City, 162-127

RICHMOND, VA — In the final game of Saturday action, surprising low seeds Jacksonville (8th) and Terminal City (10th) found themselves competing for a spot in the 5th place game against Kansas City. Both teams featured remarkably speedy jammers, but Jacksonville’s defense was just a bit better; an enjoyably old-school game defined by track play rather than penalty pileups ended with Jacksonville triumphant 162-127.

RICHMOND,VA–Fighting for the right to play for 5th, the fifth-seeded Kansas City squared off with ninth-seeded New Hampshire in the 11th game of the WFTDA Division 1 Playoffs in Richmond, Virginia. The two teams could not have arrived at the bout through more different routes; Kansas City are previous WFTDA champions who made it out of the South Central region every year to the Championship tournament, while New Hampshire were making a surprising maiden playoff appearance.

RICHMOND, VA — In the second semifinal of the Richmond playoffs, it looked very promising early for third seed Naptown, who led highly favored second seed Texas for much of the first 15 minutes and trailed by only 16 points early in the second half — but the extremely experienced Texas crew reacted coolly and got the job done. A brutal three-jam, 75-0 sequence for Texas with 19 minutes to play turned a potential historic upset into an expected blowout, as Texas skated into the tournament final with a 295-136 win.

RICHMOND, VA–The first semifinal of the second WFTDA division on playoff was contested by two teams seemingly headed in very different directions. Angel City had been languishing in the Western region and struggling with the regional powerhouses when the new divisional structure was brought in, and an exceptionally strong home season saw them climb to #5 in the rankings to claim a top seed. Philly, near-constant Champs attendees had to give up their accustomed second seed from the east and come into this tournament seeded 4, with results this season suggesting they are a team on the slide as they struggled with jammer penalties putting up a number of very close scores against teams they would have previously been expected to blow away.

RICHMOND, VA — In the second game of Saturday action, 5th seed Kansas City faced off against 7th seed Tampa in the consolation bracket. It was a heated fight to escape the 9th place game, with both teams obviously frustrated by the previous day’s results.

RICHMOND, VA–The last time these two teams met, No Coast brought a three-jammer rotation featuring Megan Harrington (nee Flash Gloria), heavily. That game leaned in No Coast’s favour with each team steadily adding in points, No Coast’s point additions outweighing Jacksonville’s at every jam. This game was not to replicate that performance, as Jacksonville instead emphatically claimed the win, 213-125.
