Dirty Deeds Tournament Recap

I don't have much to say since it is nearing midnight and we just got back... But, if there are some of you up in the late hours of the night or have morning reading done on this site, I wanted you all to know how Churchill, Northwest and South Eugene did this weekend:

Special Note: The rain had been coming down all week on the fields we were using and continued rainfall on Saturday eventually led to the fields being closed after the second round of pool play. The tournament was postponed until Saturday 7am when we would get a call and be told what was happening. They moved the fields to Skagit River Park in Burlington. The girls division started with their 3rd and final pool play round, while the boys skipped their 3rd round and played out the 4th and 5th before moving into the same 10 team championsip brackets originally planned.

1. South Eugene: Leaving eary Friday afternoon, South attended with only 11 guys (a couple no shows and other complications led to a smaller than intended squad). They went 0-3 in pool play with convincing losses against WWU 04-13, Satan (WWU Alumni) 05-13, and Gonzaga 06-13. South was then was placed into pre-quarters against Victoria and lost fairly badly 06-13 (or something close to that). They decided to be done after this espcially considering Jacob Janin went out hurt with another ankle injury. They ended the weekend with a 12/13 spot overall.
2. Northwest: Went 2-1 in pool play, beating Satan who beat WWU... This created a 3 way tie in pt diff and gave them the number one seed in the B pool. This earned them a first round bye in the Championship bracket, which would have been really nice if it were on Sunday only, but it created a funky bye round for them in the middle of the day. They then played the winner of the South/Victoria game who was Victoria. Somehow they lost to Victoria 10-13 in Quarters. They then played Whitworth in the 5th Place Bracket and won (score unknown). They ended teh day with a 5th place tie.
3. Churchill: Went 1-2 in pool play against BC 05-13, North Seattle Community College 06-13, and then Victoria 13-07. They were then given Washington B in the pre-quarters and took the game 13-08. Quarters were against Western Washington who we would lose to 06-13. With little energy for anothe game, we agreed to play Gonzaga to 11 in 5th Place Bracket. We would lose 08-11, but have a great game and finish the weekend tied for 7th.

1. Churchill: We would go 1-2 in pool play against PLU 08-13, WWU 09-15, and then Simon Fraser 13-05. The Chapionship bracket was redone after Bellingham and British Columbia left the day before and didn't return Sunday. WWU and PLU got first round byes into the Semis. CHS took on Puget Sound in quarters and won convincingly 15-03. Next was PLUB and CHS went up early and kept the lead and eventually pushed ahead in the end with a a 15-09 victory. The finals were against Western Washington. After losing the first half 7-8 and an extremely close game, our girls fought back and won 14-09. This was the first tournament our girls have ever won and they deserved it!

who's Victoria?

University of Victoria is in Canada in Victoria, BC.
They are a pretty solid team if they are playing well.
They also had quite a substantial pickup for sunday with the likes of Oscar Pottinger who has some friends on the team.
