Sacramento, CA - Last night featured some epic showdowns to decide the Winter 2010 Wednesday night dodgeball champion. From the start of the season, Money Shot and DUI almost seemed destined to meet in the championship round. In the end, that's what happened.
The night began with DUI squaring up against More Balls than Brains, one of the best #8 seeds XOSO has had to date. The first few games traded off, with DUI taking a 2-1 edge. Then, with each game coming down to a couple players, DUI found a way to win each one, prevailing 7-1 in the match.
D3: The Mighty Drunks faced off against Beans and Rice, and took a commanding lead before relaxing, saving their arms for the #1 seed, DUI.
Money Shot beat Your Mom with relative ease, 8-3, and Out Like a Fat Kid beat Goodness, Gracious, Great Balls of Fire 7-3. In a heated matchup, Money Shot won the final two games to pull away and crush the dreams Out Like a Fat Kid had of winning their first title.
D3: The Mighty Drunks, who had shocked the dodgeball nation with an upset of Money Shot earlier this season, prepared to knock off the #1 seed in the semi-finals. They kept each game close, before DUI won the last two games, winning the match 4-2 and heading to face the Old Sacramento division's #1 seed, Money Shot in the finals.
All season long, Money Shot and DUI sat atop their divisions, hoping for the chance to prove their mettle against the other. Last night, they got their chance. DUI, facing what some considered a tougher road to the final match, didn't have what it takes to overcome a team bringing the heat and Money Shot won the championship 7-1. Money Shot was reborn this season after winning two titles under different names and with different rosters.
Thanks for a great season everyone, see you in a few weeks!
