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.

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.

After the inaugural season of WFTDA divisions, teams have now had a full year to work the calculator and find their groove among the rankings. For some, it ended up with them falling out of playoff contention while for others it was a matter of making great strides to the top, even making the jump to Division 1.
