DULUTH, MN–Brewcity barely squeaked past Brandywine to take 7th place at the first D2 playoffs with a 186-174 win. While Brewcity held a respectable, if not comfortable, lead at the half, Brandywine surged out of the locker room to to take the lead ten minutes into the second period–only to see the game tied with two minutes to play. Brewcity’s Carabunga put on a blocking clinic in those final minutes, allowing Frank Hurt’r to retake the lead and secure the win for her side.
DULUTH, MN–Treasure Valley controlled Brewcity through the entire bout but didn’t beat them by as much as last year’s playoff game. While Brewcity struggled to settle into a solid jamming rotation, Treasure Valley could have benefited from playing a little more offense–especially with another game this weekend and jammers’ legs to think of–but they still ended up on top, 187-92.
