3rd Hilo Ultimate League Finals

Last sunday we had the finals for our 3rd Hilo Ultimate League:

League Results:

Redrum - 12 points
Kermit & the stringbeans - 7 points
Black Plague - 5 points

Redrum was the clear winner of Hilo's Third League!

Playoffs:

This time we decided to have a play off round. Team Black Plague and team Kermit competed in a game to 7 points to decide who should play Redrum in the finals. Black Plague played awesome and it seemed they might be able to beat the Kermits. But in the last 10 minutes of the game the Kermits pulled ahead beating the Plague by 2 points.

Kermit (8) - Black Plague (6)

Finals:

A fun and intense game with plenty of mud and rain to keep things interesting. During the first half Redrum left Kermit in the mud with a lead of 8-2. But it didn't take the Kermits long to be green with envy and have a minor comeback. It wasn't enough to beat the ever-so-awesome red power machine but the results left everyone is a state of joy!

Redrum (15) - Kermit (10)

Congratulations REDRUM!

Awards:

Most Spirit Female Player: Georgia
Most Spirit Male Player: JP

Conratulations!

Party:

The party was a blast as always. The rain only added to the fun providing the necessary water for our slip'n slide. Plenty of beer and good food was to be had. And the results of the boat race showed that even in the realm of booze Red just won't lose!


And a HOORAY for Dave Gelber who will be the comissioner for the 4th Hilo Ultimate League!!!
