Labor Day | Livermore, CA
August 30-31, 2014
This past weekend, while the rest of the country was busy either playing or watching the Pro Flight Finale in Seattle, we quietly hosted AND WON our own Labor Day tournament in California! Due to a last minute team drop, the rounds (and fields) had to be shortened and the tournament reformatted to a 7-team round robin. Thanks to everyone for rolling with the punches and supporting our TD's in all these changes!
We went 4-0 on Saturday with wins against Viva (8-3), Underground (8-4), Jackwagon (9-0), and Further (9-1). We were excited to see Pop in the first round on Sunday. We won the first game to three (3-2) and continued to stay in the lead through 6-4 until Pop outplayed us and rattled off three in a row to take the game 7-6. We shook it off and fired up for our last pool play game against Tempo, winning 13-1. After reseeding, we saw Underground in semis in a great game with both teams having improved since Saturday. We gritted it out to win 8-5 and earn a chance for redemption against Pop in the finals! This time, we came out firing to win the first game to three (3-0) and never looked back. Final score was 12-6.
This is our first ever tournament win!!! We're proud of how we played and super excited to take that energy into Sectionals this weekend!
