RICHMOND, VA–The Sunday opener at the second division one playoff was contested by two teams that would have had high hopes of improving their seeding coming in fighting to avoid a last-place finish. No Coast and Tampa came in seeded 6 and 7 respectively–and it was Tampa who regained some pride with a thoroughly convincing 283-133 upset win to take ninth place back to Florida.
RICHMOND, VA–The last time these two teams met, No Coast brought a three-jammer rotation featuring Megan Harrington (nee Flash Gloria), heavily. That game leaned in No Coast’s favour with each team steadily adding in points, No Coast’s point additions outweighing Jacksonville’s at every jam. This game was not to replicate that performance, as Jacksonville instead emphatically claimed the win, 213-125.
