Teams from all over the world are flocking to Eugene, Oregon this weekend to take part in the third annual Big O tournament. Hosted by WFTDA #104 Emerald City, the three-day event has grown to attract high level play,and this year, four teams from the WFTDA top 20 are taking part.
MILWAUKEE, WI — After the intense and much closer than expected 174-125 semifinal between Bay Area and Gotham on Saturday night, many expected the Texas / Gotham championship matchup to be an anticlimax — when the teams met in June, Gotham had smoked Texas 313-66. This time, though, Texas was up to the challenge … almost. The Austin crew was within striking distance for the entirety of the bout, held a few short-lived leads and still had a fighting chance going into the last jam, but in the end Gotham was just too good, again. Gotham claimed their 4th WFTDA title and 3rd in a row, triumphing 199-173.
