In a championship dodgeball game marked by three huge momentum swings, the Super Attack Squad could not put a halt to the last streak the Manibags went on, losing five straight points down the stretch and their shot at the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s Intermediate Dodgeball title in the process.
The Manibags started the game by quickly rattling off four straight points and sitting down their opponents with precision throws and a solid plan of attack. But the Super Attack Squad’s athleticism seemed to take centre stage after a short huddle and they leapt and dove around the court to claw their way back into the game with just a 5-4 deficit.
The overall win proved elusive, however, as the Manibags were the victors on several close points down the stretch and never looked back as they took first place by a 10-4 final.
The Thundercats, meanwhile, notched third overall with a 10-8 win over DajMaBallz. Fifth place went to the Grease Balls in a 10-0 win over the Bearded Clams. Rounding out the standings, the Tea Bags took seventh place in a 10-9 win over the Ballistics, and the Lucky Chasers pulled off a 10-9 win over the Chuck ‘n Duckers for ninth.
The recreational dodgeball championship saw the Dodgers notch a 10-6 win over the Ten Phat Kidz to take their first dodgeball title and put an end to the Phat Kidz’s undefeated season. And the Chuck ‘N Duckers nabbed third place in the recreational league with a 10-7 win over the Indrediballs.
Fifth overall went to Team Excellence in a 10-7 victory over Toaster. Seventh spot was nabbed by the Fighting Amish in a 10-8 battle over the Blazing Balls. And the Wrenches secured ninth place with a 10-5 victory over the Pumped Up Donkeys.
