The #4 vs #5 game is often the highlight of the first day of any WFTDA playoffs–and on occasion the entire tournament. On this occasion it’s taking up the headline spot at 2000 PDT, and we hope it lives up to that headline billing.
Let’s get one thing clear out of the gate. This is not anyone’s game. If the winner of New Hampshire versus Kansas City were to win this game, it would make the Miracle on Ice a mere footnote in the great book of sporting upsets.
The teams contesting the second game of day one in Sacramento had very different playoff seasons in 2013. Tampa came into Richmond with high hopes of improving on their seeding but dropped down to 9th after an upset by 10-seeded Terminal City on day one. Blue Ridge didn’t just see playoffs in the 2013 season, but they also went to Championships in Milwaukee, placing third.
