DULUTH, MN–New Orleans’ Big Easy were a founding WFTDA member making their first appearance at playoffs this year; St Charles’ St Chux are a new league just breaking onto the scene. An impressive 9-1 record for the year coming into the tournament had secured St Chux top seeding here, but wasn’t enough to see them all the way to the final as they were shown up a little by Sin City’s dynamism. They had no such problems with Big Easy, though–they put on a thoroughly dominant performance and clinic in soul-destroying meat-grinder defence and finished 295-84 winners to take the bronze medal.

DULUTH, MN–From the first whistle to the last, Big Easy just could not handle Detroit. There was a brief rally for Big Easy once the game was won by Detroit, and the final score of 292-115 did not quite reflect quite the stranglehold that Detroit had on the game whilever they had a jammer on the track.

DULUTH, MN–Big Easy and Tucson are both original WFTDA member leagues, both dress black and gold, and both have at least one giant blocker in their packs. They were similarly well matched on the track tonight as, while Big Easy managed to spread the lead multiple times, Tucson kept springing back.

We are just over three weeks out from the first D2 playoff and things are still a bit quiet, with one exception– an upset by Suburbia over DC. Sacred City also made a public announcement on Facebook as to why they declined their playoff invite citing high costs, but they will be the hosts for the first D1 playoff, September 5-7. Their response rounds out the three declining teams, including Sac City and the Oly Rollers.
