Recreational Sports Report

While some intramural sports are in the thick of their seasons the co-rec intramural softball league has just two teams remaining this year before the championship game approaches.

Funnelle All-Stars and WTOP and Athletes will face off in the championship contest on Oct.18.

WTOP and Athletes has had a dominant season thus far. Led by Matt Stone, they went unbeaten in the regular season, going 5-0.

The team advanced in the playoffs after a forfeit victory in the semifinals.

Meanwhile, Funnelle All-Stars have had a rollercoaster season, finishing the year 3-2. However, after an impressive 6-1 win in the semifinals against Honey Nut Ichiros, they now find themselves just one victory away from taking home the championship T-shirts.

Their championship meeting marks the second time that the two teams will go head-to-head this season.

Back on Sept. 23, both teams fought hard, with WTOP and Athletes outlasting Funnelle All-Stars, 8-7, in a close contest.

However, the stakes have now been raised with a championship title waiting to be claimed.

In the men’s league, there are two squads left competing for the title. Ten teams entered the playoffs with championship aspirations, but only Sons of Pitches and The Guild remain standing.

The Guild has had a solid season, losing only one game en route to a 5-1 regular season record.

In the playoffs, it relied on its offense to carry the team, as it out-swung Ball so Hard, 13-6, in the quarters and Monstars, 9-6, in the semis.

Sons of Pitches endured an inconsistent regular season, going just 3-2. The squad lost twice to The Guild in the regular season by scores of 13-9 and 15-14.

However, after a 15-12 win over Dirty Mike and the Boys and a 9-8 defeat of previously unbeaten Rolltiders, Sons of Pitches will try to extend their winning streak and secure a championship title.

Meanwhile, intramural flag football has reached the end of the regular season with the playoffs now on the horizon.

In co-rec league, Daddie$$ clinched the No. 1 seed after earning a 4-1 record in the regular season. The squad scored at least 30 points in all of its wins.

Its top challenger would seem to be the 2-2 Ball Crushers, which was the only team to beat Daddie$$ during the regular season.

However, in the men’s competitive league, it is a completely wide open race to see who comes out a champion.

With 27 teams in the league, the playoffs will be impossible to predict. Hellhounds and Channel 5 News went a combined 11-0 and will be the favorites.

However, there are other teams fighting for a chamionship as well.

The Guild did not lose a game en route to finishing 3-0-1, while 4 RIP, S.O.D.M.G, Rolltiders, Dillon Panthers and Hustlin Homies all finished at 4-1. The Saltine Warriors are also in the mix with a 3-1 record.

Play is set to resume next week, with championship aspirations on the line.
