D1S: #1 Gotham Upends #4 Rat City

SACRAMENTO, CA–After #1 seed Gotham (WFTDA #1) took on Kansas City yesterday, many in the audience thought that the semi-final against #4 seed Rat City (WFTDA #16) would be the same level of rout that was witnessed the day before. Rat City, however, came out fighting and was able to put up an incredible fight against Gotham, but the final score ended up 297-92 in Gotham’s favour.

D1S: #3 Denver Rolls Over #6 Santa Cruz

SACRAMENTO, CA–The game between Denver and Santa Cruz went about as expected: Denver played their demoralizing defense and worked toward a solid win over the #25 ranked Boardwalk Bombshells. After Santa Cruz placed 2nd in Division 2 last year, the team started this year by playing up into D1 for a number of games–winning over Wasatch in March and losing by just 38 points to Rat City in June. Their tenacity definitely showed during this game, but their 260-48 loss to Denver showed that the top 40 has a wide range.
