Mondays typically put smiles on the faces of local ultimate Frisbee players, being it’s the much anticipated game night for the Comox Valley Ultimate League – all Mondays except perhaps BlackMonday, that is.

The runaway favourites to take home the “A Tier” championship in the spring ultimate league of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club is BlackMonday (6-0), named after the day of the week the popular Lorne Hotel in Comox burned to the ground. The black-clad team captained by Colin Somers have played like a bunch of ultimate ninjas, boasting an undefeated record heading into their upcoming semifinal playoff game against A Thousand Monkeys (1-5).

The high-spirited and extremely talented juggernaut rolled through their quarter-final opponent, the Discs of Hazzard (4-2), by a 15-2 count on Monday at Mark Isfeld field. In the Monkeys, they now face the highest seeded team to lose after their 15-5 defeat at the hands of Flight (4-2).

Loaf (4-2) notched a 15-8 win over the Huckstables (1-5) to advance to face Flight in the other semifinal that will advance a team to the championship game. The Huckstables and Discs of Hazzard will face off in the consolation semifinal.

In the “B Tier” of the 10-team ultimate league, the Disclexics (6-1) won 13-8 over Yeah It Is! (3-4) to finish as the top seed. They will take on the Backhanded Compliments (0-6), in one semifinal playoff game. The other will feature the Spring Flings (2-4) up against Yeah It Is!

Registration is now open for the summer leagues of the CVSSC, which include many tiered leagues in sports such as ultimate Frisbee, soccer, beach volleyball, flag football and kickball. Individual players, small groups and teams of any skill level can register online at www.comoxvalleysports.ca.
