League V Finale - Stats and Story

Last night's finals were a mixed bag of hot playing, serious heckling, terrific costuming, and all out fun.
The semi-finals were fast and furious (no joking). Chupa Lachuga got their butts handed to them in about 45 minutes by Beet It with a final score of 9-2 (OUCH!). It has been reported that the green team was so badly mourning the absence of their fearless captain Dave Gelber, that they couldn't manage to play with the fervor they had come to the field with over the rest of the league.

The final game featured Black Hole and Beet It in a head to head battle for the championship. Black Hole and Beet it were neck-in-neck for the first half, but after half-time Beet It broke away for a win of 15-7 (could Black Hole have been distracted by the half time show performed by the half schwilly Chupa Lachuga's?).
It was an overall great playoff afternoon- spirits were high, play was fierce, fun was had.

The Hilo Ultimate League Finals will begin at 2:00 this coming Saturday!!! Everyone should arrive at 1:30 for warming up, because play will start promptly at 2:00!!! The final score on points for regular league play and seeding for the Finals are as follows:

Black Hole 11 points 1st seed

So, in the Playoff Round will be Chupa Lachuga vs. Beet It in a 7 or 8- point game. This game will begin at 2:00 this Saturday!!! Following the playoff round, there will be a short break (15-30 minutes) and then the Final will begin between Black Hole and the winner of the Playoff. The Final will be to 15 or the time cap. Following the Final, awards will be given and the party will commence.

Everyone should bring grilling items and can make pupus to bring if you are happy. I think we will have a really good day of ultimate since the teams were brilliantly chosen. See everyone on the field!!!
