Pool Play Results: 5.18.13

:Game 1: 
0-0, 0-1, 1-1, 2-1, 3-3, 8-3, 12-4, 14-5, SLUDGE win 15-9 vs Pignition.

Sludge's post-season offense started with efficiency - goals by Rachel & by Chris, plus scores thrown by Nigel & Brian. Jen caught the 8th point to go into half; 8-3.

The inclement weather of mist seemed to aid the Sludge zone which forced many throws.

Sludge went on a 4-point run with scores from Charlie to Sarah & to Rachel, Brian's hammer to Joe, Andrew’s hammer to Russ. At 14-5, brown's lead started slipping like a forehand with a wet hand. After surviving a 4-point run by Pignition, Michael threw the winning score; win 15-9.

:Game 2: 
0-0, 1-0, 4-2, 4-8, 8-8, 8-12, 9-12, SLUDGE loss 9-15 vs Sundays at Six.

Once the new Rachel+Michael H wedding disc was deemed an unsuitable umbrella, Andrew's grey canopy tent was welcomed. Sludge hurriedly moved into the tent like it was the first day of OBX. The pull on the first point was dropped, so Sludge easily scored; 1-0. The first half of the first half went Sludge's way until Sundays at Six scored seven straight; 4-8.

The precipitation finally stopped around mid-game as Sludge started to close the gap with the next 4 points to start the second half; 8-8. Brian's (in-bounds) layout along the endzone's sideline capped off the Sludge use of a horizontal offense. Sundays tightened their defense and countered with their own run; 8-12. Loss 9-15.

:Game 3:
0-0, 3-0, 3-1, 4-2, 7-2, 8-4, 8-9, 9s, 9-11, 14-11, SLUDGE win 15-13 vs Huckin' Justice.

Sludge carried their newest team member, TC (tent canopy), to the adjacent field to play the last game of the day. Up 3-0, Sludge dictated pace with their defense anchored by Steve. Brian's cross-field huck was caught by Andrew on his knees; 4-1. A few points later, Christy slid to snag a throw from Russ; 7-2.

After halftime, Huckin' Justice started to close the gap with a crash-the-cup offense; 8-9.

Sludge's switch to person defense also resuscitated their offense - Charlie's backhand to Joe; Michael's one-handed score thrown by Andrew, Rachel's backhand to Christy; 14-11. At 14-13, Sludge nicely worked the disc up the field with no turnovers. Sarah finished the game with a flick to Rachel who toed the endzone sideline. Win 15-13.
