Cincinnati Ultimate is proud to announce the 5th year for SCINNY and it will be bigger and better than ever. Like last year, we will be having open elite, open, women and a USAU sanctioned master's division. New this year.....a high school division.

Proceeds from the tournament will go to support the Cincinnati Ultimate Select Program's U19 boys, U16 boys and U19 girls teams. Dinner on Saturday night will be hosted and cooked by the parents of these teams and trust me, it is a spread.|

I can confirm that SCINNY 2012 did happen again this year. As usual it was a very fun tournament and highly competitive. The bad news is that attendance at SCINNY was way down this year due to DWTC pulling the northern teams away and AUDL cutting down on the total number of teams in the area. The last few years, we have had ~20 open teams and 4 masters teams. This year, we had 6 open teams and 3 masters. Sort of a bummer as the overage from this tournament goes a long way to funding our summer traveling youth teams.|
Anyway...on to the recap.
We had 6 Open teams:
Madador (Madcow B/tryout team)
Teets University (Columbus)
Flying Pig (Cincy YCC team)
Madador had a few Madcow players but was mostly composed of players looking to get on the team for the first time. They had a lot of guys and quite a lot of athleticism, but their lack of experience together and playing in the Madcow system was obvious. The Hustle and Enigma rosters changed dramatically between Saturday and Sunday. Hustle getting a bit worse and Enigma quite a bit better.
SCINNY 2012 was really a tale of two days. The game of the day came down to Hustle and Madador which went through both the soft and hard caps. Hustle ended up winning by one in a game that was close throughout. Enigma struggled all day. Paducah, a brand new team, played surprisingly well. Pig also played well and hung with both Madador and Hustle for a while.
Final standings after day 1.
Flying Pig (3-2)
On sunday, a second high school team (New Palastine from Indy) and a combined masters team were added which brought the totals up to a convenient 8 team bracket.
Hustle easily took care of New Pal. Madador was up four at half on the masters, but let them back into the game before closing it out late. Pig has a relatively easy win over a shorthanded Teets and Enigma rolled easily past Paducah.
The Hustle/Enigma match looked like it would be good on paper, but turned out to be a bit disappointing. Hustle lost a number of players from Saturday and Enigma picked up several extra guys. Enigma ended up winning easily (15-7). On the other side, Pig game Madador an excellent first half (down 6-8 at half), but were very shorthanded on the weekend (only about half the team there) and ran out of gas in the second half, faling 6-12.
Enigma had a small army at the tournament and lots of fresh legs and it showed in the finals. They ended up rolling Madador (15-5 or so).
Enigma looks decent when they have all their players. Not elite, but should challenge Lake Effect for the second spot among Ohio teams. Madador had a few guys that look like they can contribute to Madcow and a lot of guys who could use some more experience and consistency. They certainly had some nice height and athletcism. Hustle looks like the hustle of a few years ago. Small roster of good players who can play one or two really good games in a tournament but lack the numbers to be a real threat. Pig shows a lot of promise with a decent showing despite missing most of their Holy Family Catholic players (second at HS Centrals).
