Club Sectionals 2022 Roundup

Here's who qualified for Regionals!

The 2022 Club Series is here, as teams from around the country competed to earn spots at Regionals with their performance at qualifying Sectionals tournaments.

Here’s a look at the teams that qualified, though it is important to note that not all teams that qualified are accepting their bids, so Regionals lineups may look fairly different in some regions or divisions.

Results will be updated here as they are reported. Want more information on your Sectional tournament listed on this page? Submit a recap of what happened right here

After weather canceled Sunday of the Sectionals tournament, teams were polled on how to approach finishing out the qualification games. In that process, three teams dropped out of contention, leaving five teams remaining for five bids. Rather than reconvening for placement games, all teams have agreed to use the results from Saturday (zero upsets) and initial seeding to determine seeding order heading into Regionals.

Most of Sectionals Saturday went to chalk with the top eight seeds all advancing to the front door quarterfinals before a few closely contested first round of the bracket. The first upset occurred when no.6 seed Pittsburgh Stealers upset no.4 Virginville Rumspringa on a contentious universe point win. Not out yet, Rumspringa continued to play on a knife’s edge, ousting no.7 seed Sparta Helots thanks to an incredible layout block on universe point, converting the opportunity for their ticket to Delaware.

After last-minute schedule changes forced by inclement weather, only the final — which top-seed Pittsburgh Temper won handily 15-6 against Philadelphia Phantom — and regional qualifying games were played on Sunday.

On one end, Helots continued their conquest playing a relatively tight game with Hazard, leading at half 7-5 and then pulling away 12-6, while Stewartstown SUPA FC won a tightly contested game against Philadelphia JAWN 11-8 to keep their Regionals hopes alive. In the first game-to-go, Helots bested SUPA FC 13-6 to punch their ticket. In the path for the final bid to Regionals, Hazard rallied back from a 6-9 deficit to win 10-9 over JAWN on hard cap after a tumultuous ten minute, eleven turn universe point. In the final game to go, SUPA FC and Hazard held until 3-3 when Hazard took the first break of the game. Both teams’ O-lines would continue to hold until the final two points, where Hazard minted their first ticket to Regionals 10-6.

1. #4 Philadelphia AMP

6. Philadelphia ColorBomb

Perennial Nationals-attendees AMP surprisingly found themselves down a pair of breaks early to Jughandle in the very first round of pool play on Saturday. Jughandle took half 7-6 with a bookends score from Jana Graham but ultimately lost on universe, 10-9. AMP easily won the rest of their games to claim the first bid to Regionals, but the rematch for first place between Jughandle and AMP was cancelled due to rain.

Indeed most games on Sunday were cancelled, save for the few that determined seeding and the final bids to Regionals. Harrisburg Farm Show advanced to the game-to-go with wins over the two pick-up teams, Trenton Takers and Wilmington Blowing Heat 5.0, though the latter required a universe point finish. It was ColorBomb who claimed the last Regionals bid however, beating Farm Show 11-6 and improving on their narrow universe point victory in pool play against Farm Show the day before.

Nate Little, also of the Philadelphia Phoenix, was impressive for ColorBomb throughout the tournament, seeming to sky every team’s best matchup. ColorBomb’s Simon Covington was Little’s counterpart and had some huge plays of his own, including a massive layout for a goal in the game-to-go.

DC Grit and DC Scandal were on a collision course to meet in the final after only allowing five and seven points total, respectively, across their first three games. The final was a back-and-forth battle throughout the game with Scandal breaking to take half 8-7 and then getting a couple of late breaks to pull away at the end and win 13-10. Both teams seem poised for strong showings at the first-ever three bid Mid-Atlantic Women’s Regionals later this month.

The tournament overall went almost exactly to seed with only one upset as the no.4 seed Virginia Rebellion beat no.3 seed Washington DC Agency on universe 10-9 in the third place game.

In a game that went to universe point, Point of No Return punched their ticket to Regionals by scoring the winning point to end the game 13-12. Point of No Return ended the weekend in eighth.

No.16 seed Boston Practice Squad — a team mostly of practice players from other teams that weren’t rostered for the Series — beat perennial Nationals contender Boston Wild Card on universe point and played close with Sprocket, despite having never played together before. Manchester Scarecrow upset League of Shadows in pool play, which helped them eventually qualify for Regionals with the last spot. It was Slow vs Sprocket in the final: close game but Slow takes it.

There are unconfirmed rumblings that one of the Western New England teams gave up their bid to Regionals and instead Cambridge Lampshade, who lost to Scarecrow 13-11 in the game-to-go, will claim the newly available bid.

1. #12 New York XIST
2. Brooklyn Grand Army

1. Rochester Garbage Plates
2. Ithaca Townies
3. Toronto UNION

Top seeded Toronto UNION fell in pool play to the no.6 seed hometown Ithaca Townies 13-7 in pool play, handing the Townies the pool via point differential, as UNION defeated Binghamton Cream on universe and Cream defeated Townies on universe. Townies won the crossover game against no.4 seed Albany Bench as did no.2 seed Rochester Garbage Plates to qualify for Regionals. Cream then fell before the game-to-go against Buffalo Lake Effect — poetic justice for the Buffalo team who lost the most players of any upstate team to the newly formed Cream. In their attempt to poach talent from other upstate New York teams to form a highly competitive squad, Cream finished fifth, missing regionals, and the two teams who finished first and second in the section last year did so once again.

Townies lost in the first place game to Garbage Plates 14-12, but the final game of the tournament to determine seeding between Townies and UNION was cancelled, leaving Townies with the second bid and UNION with the third and final spot.

Townies’ Ben Goldman and Dave Tedeyan were almost unstoppable, while Garbage Plates’ Mickey Rybak also was extremely impressive.

This section is getting much stronger; expect one of these teams to make noise at Regionals.

Brute Squad won the six-team, six-bid section despite missing a few key players. Siege similarly dominated their pool before losing to Brute Squad in the final 13-9. Versa lost all their games by at least 10 points but still advances to Regionals.

Portland Rip Tide, a team of current and past Maine YCC players ranging from 14 to 24 years old, showcased big plays. Rip Tide’s first game was a 13-3 victory over Versa. Their next game with Brute Squad started close, with the score on serve until half. Tide dominated Brute in the air with their hucks but Brute ran away with the game in the second half, winning 13-6. Rip Tide then traded points with Vice to force universe but failed to stop their O-line. Tide ended the day with a 13-4 win over their hometown friends on Portland Frolic, ensuring the section went to seed. Tide’s success came from their big throwers and athletic receivers.

USAU confirmed with the TD that Switchback was the winner of this game since halftime had been reached. The game-to-go between Seattle squads Souf and Make It Rain is being rescheduled.

As expected, Austin Doublewide completely dominated, outscoring their opponents by a total of 42 points over the course of four games. In an upset, no.10 seeded Fort Worth Cowtown Cannons took down no.2 seed Houston HIP on Saturday 15-10 and won their pool by point differential to make it to the Championship bracket on Sunday.

Cannons fought hard against Houston Clutch in their semifinal game. However, their defensive line couldn’t convert enough break opportunities to overcome blunders from their offense in the first half, and Clutch took the victory 11-9, avenging their crosstown rivals. Weirdly due to the format, since Cowtown Cannons took first in their pool only by point differential, they clinched their Regionals bid with just a single win, though they did manage a second over Dallas Flash Flood in the 6th place game.

The top ten seeds mostly earned bids to Regionals with lone exception being no.7 seed Austin Foxtrot who were given tougher road to Regionals after finishing third in a pool decided by point differential.

The tournament mainly went to seed, with Chain Lightning rolling through the competition with very little resistance. There were two first-year teams however that broke through and punched their tickets to Regionals:

– Atlanta Hooch: A first year team with a mix of players from the Atlanta, Athens, and surrounding areas. Led by Bradley Seutjens (Atlanta Hustle, formerly played with Chain) and Sam Merritt (Jojah), they upset established teams such as Rush Hour and Charleston Heat Stroke on their way to a fifth place finish after entering as the no.10 seed.

– Atlanta Arson: Another first year team and perhaps the youngest team in the tournament. A combination of current and former Georgia State players, as well as some key veterans from the area, Arson was the surprise of the tournament. They started off the weekend by easily rolling the no.6 seed Atlanta Dyno, and then in quarters they knocked off no.5 seed Heat Stroke 14-12 in a game in which they were down 0-3 to start and 5-8 at half. This win locked in a Regionals spot for Arson, who ended up finishing 6th from the no.11 seed!

Tupelo Barefoot finish fourth and make Regionals in mixed after making it last year in the men’s division. Space Force was unsurprisingly impressive, while Space Force’s Elijah Jaime, HeyDay’s Eric Sjostrom, and Barefoot’s Breanna Snipes deserve individual shout outs.
