Mellow Yellow is two for two in the First State Broomball Tournament!
Nine years into a broomball tournament and there still are new surprises to be had. Lucky for us the officials easily transitioned to the stopwatch and paper method!
As always, the First State Broomball Tournament was an exciting weekend of getting to see familiar, but not often seen, faces from around the country. Players came from as far west as Indiana and as far North as Boston. Throw in the usual DC, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, New Jersey players and you have yourself a good group of people and a fun weekend.
Without question the best dressed of the tournament goes to Van Buren Boys and their brand-new Jerseys who played almost as good as they looked going 2-1 on Saturday. Think Tanks also finished Pool play 2-1 with all games being exciting and close before running into a scrappy Del Boca Vista team in the playoffs. Boca was the thorn in many team’s sides this weekend with a 1-1 pool play draw against the eventual champion Yellow, quarterfinal upset over Tanks, and the rematch with Yellow that resulted in a 1-0 loss. Super Horsipede came to Delaware with a new coach that kept the games close on Saturday. Unfortunately, the plush exterior and soft stuffing ran out Sunday when the team was eliminated by the eventual tournament champion. Rust Belt United dropped three solid goals against the eventual champion in pool play but unfortunately couldn’t get past Wile E. Coyotes in the first round of the playoffs. The Coyotes went 2-0-1 in pool play with an exciting tie vs the Saints from Boston. In the end, Mellow Yellow won their second championship in their second year in a 3-1 win over the Broomdock Saints. The Saints made the Semifinals last year, the Final this year, and we’re excited to see what they do next year.
