Boulder County Tumbles Grand Raggidy, 244-172

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON–Playing for 9th and 10th place, 6 seed Boulder County opened the final day of D2 playoffs against 10 seed Grand Raggidy. Grand Raggidy put up a solid fight against Boulder, nearly overtaking them in the second half, but intense penalty trouble–as has been the case throughout the weekend–proved Grand Raggidy’s undoing. Boulder took the win 244 to 172 and secured 9th place overall in the tournament.

D2KW: Gold Coast Frays Grand Raggidy, 213-197

KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON–The second game of the Kitchener-Waterloo leg of WFTDA’s division 2 playoffs was every bit as close as the first, but was a much scrappier encounter. Errors for both sides cancelled each other out as neither could get a particularly strong hold on the game, with both letting the initiative slip just as it looked like they might get a hold on the game.
