The results are in from the semi-final round of TUA summer league, and the matchups for the finals are set.
In intermediate division, #4 Zoom upset #1 Lift 14-11. #2 Kink-out held off a strong challenge from #3 Wobblies, 13-10, setting up a grand final match between Zoom and Kink-Out next week. Both games saw teams trade point-for-point until the eventual victors managed to pull away at the end.
Drop Table; had to forfeit their 5-6 playoff against Ninjapizza, setting up the following matches to finish out the season: Wobblies v. Ninjapizza and Lift v. Drop Table; will be playing for pride/fun/ spirit next week, in 60-minute games timed to let everyone watch and heckle the grand final.
The beginner division saw #1 Hyperbolic defeat #4 Tait’n8ers by a score of 7-3, and #3 Rainbow Sheep squeak past #2 Not That Organised by 6-5 in a wide-open, hard-fought, 6-on-6 no-subs contest that was came close to being a tie/golden goal scenario.
The matchups are less complicated in the 4-team beginner division: Hyperbolic/Rainbow Sheep in the grand final, Not That Organised/Tait’n8ers in the 3/4 final (timed to let players watch and heckle the grand final, as in the intermediate division).
More information will be available later this week reminding teams to organise salads/chips/drinks/desserts/whatever for the BBQ, and asking for nominations for various player awards.
