With two weekends to go, the 2014 playoff picture is becoming increasingly clear … so let’s take a closer look.

Weekend Preview: 14-15 June, 2014

There are a little over two weeks left this season and the WFTDA league table is taking shape.

Angel Avenges Denver, 186-152

This game was, at least for Angel City, the most anticipated of the tournament. Since Denver took away Angel City’s climb through the WFTDA Championships in Milwaukee last year, when Denver took the game 200-125, Angel City was always going to see this game as the opportunity to set that record right, and test their new relative rankings standing for 2014.

Denver Dismisses Terminal, 379-165

LOS ANGELES, CA–Another new match-up, Terminal City met Denver first up on the second day of the tournament, and gameplay matched the rest of the days, featuring swarming and clustering walls instead of the usual lateral arrangements, with skaters reversing to engage. Star passes were a feature for Terminal, climbing to 7 in this game. With a higher predicted score differential than the previous day’s Angel City / Terminal game, everyone was watching this game’s outcome also as a potential predictor of the outcome of the following day’s Angel City / Denver match-up. And it finished with Denver taking a comfortable win, 379-165.
