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.
