DULUTH, MN–Omaha opened up each day of playoffs with the 10am game and today their strategy really seemed to come together. They put Flash Gloria back on jammer duty, while putting Faye in as blocker; they also took more control of the pack and utilized star passes when their jammers were stuck. Tucson started out strong, but ran into penalty trouble and gave up too many power jam points. Omaha ended their weekend with their first win, 184-138–consigning Tucson to 10th place with a 0-3 record.
DULUTH, MN–In the five times that Brewcity and Omaha have played each other since 2010, the Bruisers have always come out on top. Until today, the closest game was last May by 34 points. In the opening game on day two of playoffs, it looked like Brewcity was going to easily take the win again as they systematically worked up a 46-point lead by the half.
