Ultimate action hits the twilight season

KB?s, WrapCity still on top

Last Thursday's Ultimate action at Ketchum's Atkinson Park was phenomenal. WrapCity (4-1) edged Board Bin (1-4) by a 13-11 score while KB's (5-0) won 13-6 over Grumpy's (0-5).

In a remarkable act of generosity WrapCity loaned veteran all-star huckster Taco Sherrerd to a shorthanded Board Bin team and the two squads battled into the twilight in a grueling endurance match.

Cat Stylin-Roberts broke out the long pants and repeatedly stymied her opponents who kept telling her she was on the wrong field. She would have none of it.

Herb Medicine offered up some inspired handling to anchor his team, connecting all night long with Wes Skyward and Cody Floatplane who treated the standing room only crowd to their usual acrobatics in the end zone.

Duke Wheels and John King kept Board Bin's crew at their anaerobic threshold. Chaka John and Dotty Sarchett played a gritty defensive game forcing several turnovers, but the talented Board Bin led 7-6 at the half behind the inspired offense of Lucy Wunderkind. She challenged the tenacious Wrapcity defense, working a smooth dump-and-swing with BB Jim. They found Tyler Iwantit-Chandler for several points.

Sage Counsel contributed her brilliant strategic support to Board Bin along with some outstanding offensive play in the middle of the field. She snagged a couple of gravity-defying diving catches, leaving the crowd awestruck.

Still, WrapCity reached deep in the second half to edge out an impressive Board Bin effort.

Across the field, KB's and Grumpy's agreed to a short-game format in order to enjoy the nutritious sport drinks provided by sponsor Blew Cooler. KB's Christl Holzl coached her team from the sidelines, saving herself for the upcoming tournament season.

Grumpy's stalwarts Mike Connelly and Jacob Thomas connected with Big Daddy Rogers to supply some firepower up front to Christina Smith and Bethany Wesson.

It wasn't enough to stop the undefeated juggernaut of KB's offense. Veteran Mike Payne supplied speedsters like Renz Circlerondu and Gretchen Mallet with scoring passes at both ends. KB's was dominant 13-6.

Tournament action is Saturday in Bellevue.
