Hey yeah.

Women's format gives us good 3-6 action, seems not unreasonable.
Fury v Zeitgeist, Riot v Traffic in semis (the Traffic v. Underground
game in, 15-14 looks interesting),
losers still backdooring up.

Open format, 13 team, 3 pool, results not posted yet. Funny w/ 3
pools, but there/s 5 on 4 action, couple brackets to figure things
out, seems reasonable for the weirdness. Boost Mobile currently listed
at 3-1, who are they.

Mixed,
Polar Bears & Mischief win the one offs to get to game to go (finals),
the loser of which plays a 2nd game to go and that's it for them.
Yeah. that makes sense. Everyone else has the long road (i.e. Swagger
& MTF have 3 games, all to win), Yeay.

I like how bad seeding could put the real 1 and 2 in one crossover,
the real 3 and 4 in the othercrossover, and 2 gets the long road (what
makes a 1? 3 easy games, then winning one hard, possibly toss-up game?
I guess so).

Rainier Rupture Represents, taking 2nd in pool, pushing up 8 spots or
something, but it's a weak pool or something, dropping out w/ CTR
getting the cross, fulfilling general expectations.

In conclusion, NW is happy there's no lightning shortened rounds in
elevation sending Psychoplastique to screw us at natties, yeah.
Skeptical about Polar Bears, but we'll see.

Filling in what isn't on score reporter, Furious beat Rhino and Revolver won out pool A. I am not sure who won the play in, but I think that means brackets look something like:

Revolver vs ?
Rhino vs ECU
Furious vs Boost Mobile
Sockeye vs Wolf

Sockeye goes 3-0, beating a Santa Cruz team led by strong play from
Idris and Darryl, and a young and enthusiastic LPC team. To end the
day, we faced ECU, and started the game strong with a break courtesy
of an Eddie Feeley block on a dump throw followed by a quick endzone
strike. The game took a few chippy turns, but overall was well-played.
Notable plays on our side included multiple gigantic grabs by Matt
Rehder including a big skying catch D on a huck that would have sailed
over most anyone else, and a massive D by Nate Castine on a huck to
the back of the endzone to Chase.

ECU showed notable resiliency, always bouncing back strongly after any
break, as there were no multiple break runs at all in the game,
although their D was unable to force more than (I think) 1 break on
our O, even after earning a few turnovers. This game was a crucial one
for either team, as it decided which side of the bracket we would end
up on tomorrow. As it is, the above is correct, we will see Wolf at
8:30am, and if seeds hold, we would see Furious afterwards in the
semi.

Other things I've heard around the tourney-- Outlaw coming back strong
after being down 11-4 in one game, and toppling the Santa Cruz team to
earn a quarters berth against Revolver tomorrow. Underground had a
barnburner against Traffic that ended in heartbreak for the girls in
green, losing on double-game point in a multiple-turn point. Similar
story from Swagger, losing to Mischief in a double-game point that I
heard was just chock full of amazing plays on both O and D.

Shaping up to be a great NW regionals. Tomorrow should be even better!

I'd love to hear any impartial observations from the Polar Bears v.
Flycoons game. Hoping my Flycoons can bounce back and make it 5 years
in a row at natties and bolster our rep as one bad ass mountain-town
Ultimate team.
Go Flycoons!

Did Rhino upset revolver to make Nationals for the first time since '07??

Probably not, but I have no idea since there are no scores reported from that half of the bracket.

Revolver over Sockeye 15-8 in the Finals. Sounds like Rhino and
Furious will be fighting for the last bid to Nationals.

Brief recap-

Sockeye faced Wolf in the 8:30am game. They had an interesting
offense-- their handlers went downfield a lot and their cutters all
had strong throws, allowing a very fluid offense that didn't set
anyone in a very rigid place on the field. They got underneaths on us
and would dish quickly to handlers for quick break throws, and this
quick disc movement was difficult to stop. However, they had some
unforced errors, and had difficulty finding their way through our
poachy zone, and we were able to get the disc on D enough to make this
game somewhat comfortable. We certainly didn't look past Wolf and
we're glad we didn't.

After Wolf we had a bit of a break before playing Furious, the game to
earn a nationals bid. Our history with the monkey is long, and both
teams had a good idea of what to expect from the other both
offensively and defensively coming into the game. Oscar, Mauro,
Lugsdin, Hughes, Menzies, Hayduk, Morgan,Seraglia, Savage.... we can
list off their (presumably) names like they can list ours, and we
matched up long before the game started. The wind had picked up a bit
in this game (but nowhere close to what it would be like alter in the
day), but the rain/drizzle had stopped. After trading a few to start,
Sockeye earned the first break with a clammish D that saw Reid Koss
jump a throw to a standing Lugsdin for a fantastic catch block, and,
gaining momentum, took half 8-4 riding the tough defense of Tim
Gehret, Nate Castine, Skip Sewell, and Matt Rehder (who unfortunately
hurt his shoulder-- diagnosis unknown for now-- getting a gigantic
layout catch D on a deep shot). Sockeye trades out to win 15-11, and
heads to finals against Revolver.

This game was not very close. Revolver's D was strong throughout,
getting some great blocks-- notably a Beau layout D on a loopy endzone
throw, an Ashland (I think?) handblock on MC that just never really
happens, and a few blocks on our defensive offense that saved breaks.
Had our defensive O converted a few of our multiple opportunities (we
got the disc, we just couldn't put it in), this game could have gone
very differently, but we simply weren't able to convert (I personally
had 2 terrible mental mistakes to turn over break opportunities and I
wasn't the only one). Tough way to finish, but the nationals berth was
our goal, and we're psyched to head to Sarasota.

After the finals we watched Riot beat Fury (!!) in a game that looked
like both Riot pressured Fury's offense into making mistakes, and
Fury's offense simply wasn't clicking like they usually do. But, I
didn't see much of this and am going on hearsay, so perhaps someone
else can give a more informed report.

The Rhino/Furious game was crazy. The wind picked up a ton by this
game, and the sideline crowd was big. Rhino took half 8-7, with the
first half full of big deep shots and exciting plays on both ends.
Furious was consistently working the disc across the whole field
utilizing a lot of underneaths and breaks and swings, and Rhino seemed
to move the disc laterally among their handlers until deep shots
opened up, which they hit fairly well, and had the athletes to reel in
those that were floaty or far-- this made for some crowd pleasing
catches. Tad Jensen, Eli Friendman, Matt Melius, and Breeze were all
playing well for Rhino, and Lugsdin, Oscar, Menzies, and Morgan (even
with a busted right wrist, playing lefty) were key for the Monkey. In
the second half, it seemed like Rhino's game, as they went up 13-10 on
strong momentum and great upwind flicks from Breeze to their jumpy and
fast receivers, one especially athletic second-effort grab by Melius
on a tipped disc. But then it was Furious' turn to fight back, as they
got one after another D to climb back into the game and tie it at 13s.
There were a few touch calls to make, especially one big layout incut
D by Furious that was ruled a foul (it definitely looked like a a foul
to me), and one big upwind huck that looked as if both players caught
it simultaneously that was brought back. In the end it was Furious'
day-- after going up 14-13, they were pulling downwind and got the
turn, and someone popped up a terrible floaty pass into the endzone
that just hung and hung, drawing a crowd of playmakers until it
floated just above all of their reach and drifted into the waiting
hands of Morgan who was slightly out of the pile for the Furious goal
and win and trip to nationals. Real tough to watch the Rhino boys go
down that way, truly heartbreaking. Great game for the fans.

I also heard Polar bears took down Swagger in a game that was close
until it wasn't, and Traffic is definitely heading to Nationals, as
they were pretty loud on the sidelines cheering for their canadian
boys.

Exciting weekend overall-- would love to hear about how it went down
in the South!

Any recaps of mixed games to go? Heard the MTF'ers were not pleased
with PB's call game in their crossover. On a side note, it saddens me
to not see MTF make it this year, as they're literally the best mix of
competitive people on the field and nicest people off the field you'll
ever play.

One of their players was TD, and they came in originally seeded 5th (of 5), and later moved up to 4 prior to the tournament. They held seed, so I would imagine it wasn't the same roster as their UPA '09/WUCC teams.

Evidently they were forced to play by USAU in order to hold on to
their worlds title. Because they had pickup that didnt play on their
2009 nationals winning team, these people had to be on the roster for
a USAU series event in order for their participation in Prague to be
legal... Troubled Past brought a skeleton roster, of i think 8
players, and they are calling it quits while on top.

Closer to 12 guys, I think. They zoned pretty much all of Saturday to
save legs, and didn't play Sunday.

Calgary's team beat a burgeoning Portland team 15-7 in the finals.
Calgary had a few good additions from last year's Troubled Past and
Throwback squads, and Portland added a few Throwback guys this year,
as well as others from Nevada, Ashland, Eugene, Bend.

>Any recaps of mixed games to go? Heard the MTF'ers were not pleased
with PB's call game in their crossover.

Mischief went up 2-0 and had the disc in the red zone, but the 'Bears got a big run-through D on the goal-line from the shorter of their two redheaded women (Emma?) to save a second break. Same girl got a big layout D a couple points later to put PB back on serve. Teams more or less traded the rest of the half -- PB got another break, Mischief got it back to take half.

Early second half was all Polar Bears, ripping off three straight to go up 10-8. They got another break later to make it 12-9, but a combination of a string of uncharacteristic miscues from the PB handler core (Matti Sung and Bob Liu, who have been money all season) and solid offense from the Mischief D line made it 13-12 Mischief, game to 14.

Polar Bears marched it down the field and put it in to tie at 13's, then Mischief did the same, ending the game on a midfield huck that zipped just over the top of the PB defender.

There were a lot of calls made in this game by both teams, but most of them were upheld by the observers. 3 TMF's were issued, 2 to PB and one to Mischief, though I don't recall what they were for. In any case, it was a hard-fought game that came down to the wire and certainly could have gone either way -- exactly what a game to go in a region this tough should be. Both these teams are legitimate contenders and I will be surprised if they don't both make at least quarters and bring back a strength bid.

I didn't see the PB-Swagger game to go, but I heard it was close at half and then Polar Bears ran away with it. I'm not surprised; they're a pretty young team that's loaded top to bottom with athletes, so maybe they just had more in the tank, especially since they only had to play 2 games while Swagger had 3, including one against MTF. Agreed that I am sad they won't be in Florida -- great competitors and people. Hopefully the region will get 3 bids next year.

I'll start off by saying I'm not positive of the exact scores so I apologize if I'm off slightly.

Mischief started off the game up 2-0 with our offense and defense working well against PB early game jitters. PB got things together and went on a short run to take the lead. We were getting opportunities to score on every point but weren't always able to capitalize on their mistakes. I believe we trailed 6-7 and were able to score two to take half 8-7. At some point in the middle of the game they threw in a zone point but the wind wasn't strong enough at that point in the day and we swung/hammered our way to a fairly easy score. Coming out of half, we took a few deep shots into tight coverage and allowed them to take a significant lead. I think we were down 8-10 and 10-13 before rallying on a 4 point run to put us up 14-13 with the cap on, game to 15. They scored to set up universe but we marched it down for the win.

We heard the same thing from MTF about PB in their semis game and were happy to have observers in a contentious game to go. I think they really helped keep things in control and sped up the numerous stoppages. In the end, PB was awarded two TMFs and Mischief was given one in the finals. They have aggressive defense and an overly aggressive mark which is what led to a number of our calls.

MTF was always a great opponent because despite being in a hotly contested game against them they were always good people who you could get along with afterward.
