GUILDFORD, UK–The final game at Anarchy might have been expected to be close just going by WFTDA rankings that had Rocky Moutain pegged at #9 and Toronto at #13–but the pattern of scores in the tournament to date meant that the odds were very heavily in Rocky Mountain’s favour. Toronto put in a performance that showed some of the strength that had earned them that ranking–but they still fell 357-100 and were consigned to last place as Rocky took second.

GUILDFORD, UK–Toronto and Detroit both came into day two of Anarchy with two games ahead of them, and yet to register their first win. This was a WFTDA rankings mis-match on paper thanks to Toronto’s huge rise this month–but the 34-ranked Detroit claimed an early lead and then held off the 13-ranked Toronto to claim the upset win 199-159.

GUILDFORD, UK–It was a festival of pink as London’s London Brawling (current WFTDA #7) took on Toronto’s CN Power (WFTDA #13); even both teams’ coaches got in on the act with both Ballistic Whistle and Wade Wheelson sporting bright pink ties.
