Week 3: Thriving

Sludge earned an early break at the beginning of the game and kept the lead; 1-0. When Sludge did not break, Great Society was forced with many throws due to Sludge's traditional & hybrid zone sets.

Give-and-go's were prevelant in Sludge's 1st half offense. Russ to Brian to Russ, 2-1; Christy to Matthew to Christy, 3-1; Bucci to David to Matthew to David to Bucci, 6-3.
Brian kept brown on a good flow with a 50-yard flick huck to Nigel on the enar sideline who then sent a cross-field backhand to Mike; 8-5. Andrew's backhand to Chris cushioned the lead to 11-7.

In a balance of effort (one cutter) and precision (tight throwing window), cuts from behind the handlers into the endzone were the O du jour.

During garbage time, Michael was beat on a cut underneath but recovered to swat a floaty disc destined for an endzone receiver. Later in the same point, Michael's run-through defense helped Sludge with favorable starting position, and a score to Mike; 14-7.

Sarah's knee-slide-catch of Andrew's backhand safely ended the game. Win 15-7.
