DES MOINES, IA–The number two-seeded Brewcity came into the fifth place game looking to salvage some pride, while nine-seeded Dallas came in having already beaten their initial seeding, and looking to boost their ranking even further and make a case for Division 1 inclusion next year. In a game of multiple lead changes it looked like it could be anybody’s for almost the entire bout–but a decent run in the last few minutes took the game just out of Brewcity’s reach and Dallas triumphed 237-207.

DES MOINES, IA–The penultimate game of the second day of the inaugural WFTDA Division 2 tournaments looked to be going Omaha’s way as Dallas had a first half littered with penalties, reminiscent of some of their ill-disciplined play earlier in the weekend. But Dallas stole the lead just before the half and never relinquished it as they cleaned up their act to take the win 228-187.

DES MOINES, IA–After Treasure Valley took out Omaha to open the first WFTDA Division 2 playoff with a one-sided affair, it fell to Dallas and Tallahassee to make things interesting. With 103 major penalties accrued between the teams, it was not the highest quality affair–but those penalties came in clumps, making scoring streaky and the final minutes tense. In the end Dallas managed to hang on and progress to face Sin City with a 267-249 win.
