RICHMOND, VA — In the penultimate game of the Richmond playoffs, tournament top seed Angel City and 4 seed Naptown went at it for third place and the right to play in Milwaukee at November’s WFTDA Championships. After a rather cold start on Friday against New Hampshire, Angel City was looking quite a bit more stable and Naptown had major problems mounting even minor rallies. Naptown steadily lost ground almost all the way through the contest, and in the end Angel City claimed their first-ever trip to Championships with a 222-130 victory.

RICHMOND, VA — In the second semifinal of the Richmond playoffs, it looked very promising early for third seed Naptown, who led highly favored second seed Texas for much of the first 15 minutes and trailed by only 16 points early in the second half — but the extremely experienced Texas crew reacted coolly and got the job done. A brutal three-jam, 75-0 sequence for Texas with 19 minutes to play turned a potential historic upset into an expected blowout, as Texas skated into the tournament final with a 295-136 win.
