The weather: perfect for Ultimate.
The wind: off and on gusting from the southeast. Alternating between 0 mph and 18 mph. This translated to crosswind on the first field, and had little effect on the second.
The ground: squishy wet and perfect for layouts. =]
TiTan Fusion arrived and started getting warmed up. Twelve players, two alumns, one driver, and one manager. The players: Ari, Craig, Hallo, LeResche, Cornejo, Toni, David, Eric, Ethan, Tucker, Kirk, Connor. The others: T.Tao, Downey, Will Navis, Manager.
After a nice jog through the swamp to the top of the hill and back, T.Tao presented a super uber tutorial of the proper layout. Not only did he include the way to practice the correct "superman" form, but he even demonstrated it too. And it's all on tape. Pwn.
First Game: TiTan Fusion's first opponent was Riverside Brookfield. The opponent was a new team, fairly athletic, and loved to backhand-huck. At first, the team in red stomped on Fusion 3 points to 1. Then, the TiTans retaliated by designating a "condom" to watch the huck targets. After that, IMSA continued to clamp down by always forcing forearm. With this, the team took it to half 6-4 on top of Riverside.
The second half would prove to be devastating, however. For some reason or another (sick, out of shape, lazy-ass), IMSA began to slowly let loose their game. People started letting throws go without forcing forearm. People started leaving guards in the middle of the field open when trying to always cover deep. People started to get hasty and throw away the disc unnecessarily. At first, IMSA and Riverside were trading points. This stopped at 9, when IMSA failed to score another goal and lost 9-11.
Second Game: TiTan Fusion played against Notre Dame, who had lost against St. Ignatius. Notre Dame had eight players clad in bright yellow. The TiTans took the first two points quickly by finding open men after a D.
Since this was an unoffical game (the tournament is single-elimination), the three "others" decided to play. Will Navis, Downey, and T.Tao got some playtime (which was oh so nice) and got some mud on their clothes (hellz yeah).
There was a "layout only" point, which was awesome. After that, things became pretty casual, and eventually led to mixing teams. But since there were so many more IMSA people, it became 01 IMSA vs. 04/07/alumn/Notre Dame. Eventually, Notre Dame left and the rest of IMSA didn't feel like playing. So T.Tao and Will Navis played one point of 1v1 Boomerange Ultimate.
