Ohio Valley Vengeance

Franciscan Fatal showed up and showed out. They had the last game on stream of the tournament and absolutely rinsed #18 Navy Poseidon 13-5, a win that they secured coming off a 13-6 win against #9 Berry Bucks. Fatal’s closest game all weekend was their first against #3 Richmond Spidermonkeys, which they won 12-11. Fatal found success on offense through great handler weaves to lull defenses before taking shots to their deep cutters. If their opponents didn’t bite in they were comfortable marching the disc down the field with as many short passes as needed. On the defensive side of the disc, Fatal stayed in zone for the most part and relied on their size and athleticism to generate turns. Folks, this is a tall and lanky group. Franciscan came into the weekend unranked, and left undefeated.
