Heist takes home the title at Chicago Heavyweights going 6-0 on the weekend against some great in and out-of-region teams. On Saturday, we won pool A by taking down Hot Metal (15-6), Pop (11-3) and Nemesis (10-8). By winning our pool, we secured a bye into the quarter finals on Sunday, and got to watch our good friends on Madison Club take on Machine in the Open division showcase game and CLX take on Mesteno in the Mixed division showcase game.
On Sunday, we set the tone with a 15-3 win over RevoLOUtion in the rainy weather. As the rain intensified during our semis match-up with Nemesis, we remained collected and intense, dictating the pace of the game. It was one of our favorite games of the weekend–physical, intense, and spirited. We came out on top 15-9, heading into the finals with momentum. Squaring off against Bent, we were able to open with two consecutive breaks and maintain a lead throughout the game, overcoming the New York squad 11-5.
We have a weekend off, and will pick it up again with a practice weekend on September 8-9 in Madison before heading north for the Northwoods Sectional Tournament in Maple Plain, MN.
