Ultimate tournament on Saturday

Disc players wrap up league play

Playing rare Tuesday night games, the Ketchum Ultimate league entered its final week of action.

Board Bin, searching for its first victory of the season, faced off against KBís.

KBís, going in the opposite direction, hoped to keep their three-game winning streak alive. Sporting new guacamole colored T-shirts; they posed an intimidating sight to the winless, beleaguered Bin team.

Winning the Frisbee toss, Board Bin elected to receive and ominously worked the disk up the field until Trent Stumph sent a knifing cross-field forehand to a streaking Eric Rogers who calmly plucked the disk out of the hands of KBís defenders, 1-0. KBís answered but it was clear that they were going to need more than new shirts to win the game.

Board Binís tight defense led to sloppy play by KBís and quickly a close game became 9-6 Board Bin advantage. The next point proved pivotal. KBís needed to gain momentum and pull within two while Board Bin wanted to close the door.

A traveling call that nullified a sure score, two muffs in the endzone and several throw aways left both teams winded and wondering if the point would ever end. In the end, Board Bin scored this marathon tally and it looked bleak for KBís. Defense wins games and KBís turned up the intensity in hopes of making a comeback.

Tim Graves laid it out, getting a finger on an upfield pass by Steve Hogan. Once again, Rogers thwarted KBís defensive efforts by corralling the fluttering disc before it hit the ground. KBís Clark Sayer and Jacob Thomas each aired it out in search of a block but the results were the same. Nada. Board Bin completed pass after pass, relying on the solid throwing and cutting of all but anchored by the stellar handling of Wes Southward and Tess OíSullivan and went on to rout KBís 13-8.

On the other field, Wrapcity coming off an overtime loss last week was fired up to take it to Grumpyís.

Unfortunately, Grumpyís was not in on the plan. Coming out fast and furious and showing no let up for its entirety, Grumpyís coasted to a 13-5 victory. Wrapcity veteran Kathy Histon lamented after the game,

"They had a lot of throwers, runners, and catchers."

The final point of the game typified their attack as Mike McDevitt launched a pinpoint hammer most of the field to a streaking Joel Mallet for game winning score.

The regular season wrapped up last night. The one-day tournament will be this Saturday, July 24 at Atkinson Park. Games start at 11:30 a.m. with the finals at 2:00. A barbecue and picnic at the parkís outdoor pavilion will follow the tournament.
