Last Weekend's Bouts
Last weekend saw two long-running local rivalries return for 2013: Sacred City (27 WFTDA) travelled to Angel City (DNN #19, 18 WFTDA), and Montreal (DNN #17, 17 WFTDA) travelled to Boston (DNN #21, 20 WFTDA).
Both games went as the rankings expected, but may well provide some early season indications of teams’ fortunes in 2013.
NASHVILLE, TN -- In their last home game of 2010 and in front of a record crowd of 2835, up 20% from their last home game at Municipal Auditorium, Nashville closed out its season with 2 wins for an undefeated home season. Saturday night’s bouts were a rematch of a double header in Fort Wayne at the beginning of Nashville’s 2009 season.
Championship Bout: #12 Detroit 109, #16 Steel City 82 -- #16 Steel City put up an impressive fight against tournament favorites #12 Detroit, and held a lead with under 15 minutes to play, but Detroit managed to string a series of late-game jam wins together to escape with a deceptively large 27-point victory and the 2010 Spring Roll women's title.
