Here are some highlights from Ultiworld:

British Columbia shored up some of their mental lapses from Santa Barbara, and came out blazing, aside from their close loss to Washington on day one. It should be noted that the Thunderbirds absolutely throttled the San Diego State Federalis 15-3, a team that later pushed Oregon into a double-game point nailbiter and only lost to the very consistent Washington by three. UBC also made up breaks in the second half of their semifinal against Oregon, pushing that game as well to a 14-15 finish.

Of the top teams in attendance this weekend, it’s hardest to project a ceiling for the Thunderbirds. Their offense — both the O-line and the D-line after the turn — plays with a kind of throwing expertise that’s still somewhat uncommon to see across the board on a college team, and Yu has swagger in spades. The challenge for this team, as it is with many others, is finding consistency in each and every game.

 

Way to go TSC Ultimate!
