KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON–Looking to take the title of 7th place overall, Demolition City (who came into the tournament an 8 seed) took on The Chicago Outfit (originally seeded 5th). Each team clearly had their sights set on victory for this game, but after an intense 60 minute fight, Demolition City was unable to match The Outfit’s smart defense and determined jammers. The Chicago Outfit took 7th place with a score of 189 to 150, though the score didn’t necessarily reflect how closely matched these teams were in terms of skill and intensity.
KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON–Queen City’s Lake Effect Furies were among the pre-tournament favourites but fell in their opening game. Demolition City were one of the mystery packages of the weekend having played very few sanctioned or streamed games, and had shown themselves to be formidable and physical opponents. What followed was a game that defies description except to note that it featured 92 penalties, 31 of which were jammer penalties, with 18 of those jammer penalties going to Queen City.
