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!
