BROOMBALL RANKINGS 9/26/18 and Meltdown Wrap-up

The first installment the Ambassador Poll rankings for the new season comes on the heels of a tournament this past weekend in Minneapolis.  The Minnesota Meltdown had some fantastic games with high profile teams trading blows to the very end. Coupled with all the off season moves and the worlds tournament quickly approaching, the broomball landscape is shaping up to be a shootout this year for the top spot.  With victorys in their last two tournaments, the MN Chiefs have proved they are deserving of the #1 spot.  The Chiefs narrowly escaped Kelly Lake with a overtime win in the semifinals to rematch a reformatted, very Canadian version of Barrie’s Tavern. After playing Barrie’s Tavern early in the tournament to a 2-2 tie, the MN Chiefs won 4-1 in the Championship to take the title with Johnny “Broomball” scoring a hat trick in said final.  National Champs C&L escaped elimination with a late goal against Legion BC in the final pool game of their bracket to grab a 2-2 tie and 2nd place bracket finish.  Immediately following that game, C&L met the abusive force of a fresh Barries squad with a 5-1 loss.  Since it is a worlds year, many of these teams have joined forces to give themselves a better chance at a World Championship run.

At the conclusion of this tournament, the focus has shifted to USA vs the WORLD!!!  Good luck to all teams competing next month.   We’ll check back in after the NA/MW and Syracuse Can/Am at the beginning of the year.

MN Chiefs 4 (10 Triple Crown Points) – Barrie’s Tavern North America 1 (9 Triple Crown Points)
Tie 3rd-4th Kelly Lake, C&L Excavating (6 points each)
Tie 5th-6th C+, Legion BC (3 points each)
Tie 7th-8th Wolves, Rochester United (1 point each)

COREC

With 3 wins in their last 3 tourneys the Beltway Roadrunners shook up the middle of the pack to take the #8 spot in the polls.  The Co-Rec polls probably won’t see much movement until Nationals, but there are a couple opportunities for teams before then.  Could this be the year a team from outside Minnesota cracks the top 5???
