Phoenix Wins Virginia Fusion Crown
With an assist from some plane reservations, Phoenix, a club team based out of Raleigh, claimed the elite club championship at the Virginia Fusion Tournament at the Smith River Sports Complex.
Riot went 6-0 in pool play and should have played in the finals, but the Seattle-based team had players who had to catch a flight and could not participate in the game.
So instead of facing off against Riot, Phoenix defeated Molly Brown 15-8 in the championship game. Both teams finished 5-2 in pool play, but each handily lost to Riot earlier in the weekend.
Nemesis, a team from Chicago, also completed pool play with a 5-2 record, but Phoenix and Molly Brown had better point differentials.
In the regular club championship, Sweet T edged Baha 14-11.
On the college side of the tournament, Dartmouth won three games on Sunday, the last against Penn State in the championship.
Including pool play, Dartmouth went 7-0 in the tournament.
