Week 6: Handled

MattHew recaps...
Sludge got off to a slow start against Backhanded Compliment, which took a lead  (2-4) by easily picking apart the Sludge zone. Brief experiments with "person" D and "match up" zone were quickly abandoned in favor of a new hybrid version--standard zone with wings playing person--that finally seemed to click. Unfortunately, mistakes on offense allowed BC to maintain and then extend its lead by 4; 6-10.

But with the kinks of the hybrid zone worked out and by eliminating mistakes on offense, Sludge mounted a furious comeback and managed to take the lead at 12-11.

BC then scored to tie the game at 12-12, and, when Sludge unCHaracteristically dropped the ensuing pull, looked poised to retake the lead. But a great D by Nigel prevented the score and gave Sludge the momentum it needed to roll to the next 3 points; 15-12 win.
