D1FW: (3) Arch Rival Overpowers (9) Bleeding Heartland, 347-121

FORT WAYNE, IN — In Saturday’s second consolation game, 3 seed Arch Rival hit 9 seed Bleeding Heartland with a 347-121 blowout that seemed a little more closely matched than the score implied. The story of the game was repeated huge power jams for Arch Rival completely unbalancing a contest that was nearly even when both teams had jammers on the track. Arch Rival scored well over 200 points during Bleeding Heartland’s 8 jammer penalties, accounting for almost the entirety of their 226-point margin of victory.

FORT WAYNE, IN — In the first half of the Cincinnati / Bleeding Heartland opening match in the 2013 WFTDA D1 Playoffs, it looked like the story was going to be Cincinnati being undone by enormous penalty trouble and Bleeding Heartland scoring a kickoff upset. In the second half, though, Cincy’s blockers cleaned up and created a showcase for tireless Cincinnati jammer K. Lethal. Lethal jammed 25 of the game’s 40 jams, went 9 jams in a row in the final 12 minutes, and put up a stunning 176 points — including a 24-0 in the final jam — to lift Cincinnati to an improbable comeback victory, 217-214.
