DULUTH, MN–New Orleans’ Big Easy were a founding WFTDA member making their first appearance at playoffs this year; St Charles’ St Chux are a new league just breaking onto the scene. An impressive 9-1 record for the year coming into the tournament had secured St Chux top seeding here, but wasn’t enough to see them all the way to the final as they were shown up a little by Sin City’s dynamism. They had no such problems with Big Easy, though–they put on a thoroughly dominant performance and clinic in soul-destroying meat-grinder defence and finished 295-84 winners to take the bronze medal.

DULUTH, MN–An aggressive and strategic game start to finish, #1 seed St. Chux and #5 seed Sin City came together in one of the best games of the weekend so far. St. Chux relied more on strong defense, while Sin City’s powerful jammers came through at the end to control the game. Penalties were St. Chux’ undoing as they got knocked out of the championship game by 33 points, 174-141.

DULUTH, MN–St Chux have burst out of St Charles, MO, over the past 12 months, turning heads with their hard-hitting play and laying down ranking upsets across the Midwest. They came into Duluth as the tournament top seed after threatening to break into Division 1 playoffs. Treasure Valley earlier got past Suburbia having come in under-ranked for a second season in a row after a gruelling 2014 schedule–but are much more of a known quantity this year after taking lots of people by surprise in 2013.

The official WFTDA June rankings and bracket announcements won’t be out until July 15th, and unless any teams decline invites to playoffs, we posted what the likely brackets will be for Division 2 last week. That puts a one month turnaround until the first D2 playoff in Duluth, which means there won’t be much action over the next few weeks. With a handful of teams new to the playoff scene, we will introduce them leading up to our full playoff preview coverage.
