Thrillah in Manila

Manila Spirits / Asia Oceania Ultimate Club Championships 2009
Nov. 6-8, Alabang Country Club

Friday. Open and Women's Division. Kapitan Fel and Warrior Nana banded with some of the Circus Weng Weng guys plus some other dudes from other teams to form Team Barracks' Obama. They competed in the AOUCC Open Division and won 2 out of 4 games. Here's a shot of Kapitan Fel making an awesome grab at the endzone.

Saturday. Day 1 of Manila Spirits and AOUCC mixed division. This was the first time the Warriors, old and new, all played together since heaven knows when so Day 1 was basically Let's-Find-Our-Team-Chemistry day. The team played against MAD, Cuernos Dumaguete, Mindanao United, and BC. The Warriors lost all four games but this did not stop them from partying hard that night at Spotlight in Pasong Tamo Extension. The theme was Z-Day and the place was packed with all sorts of walking dead. Here are shots of the Warriors hogging the baicapture photo booth. (click to enlarge)

Sunday. Last day of Manila Spirits and AOUCC mixed division. This time the Warriors proved that they still have what it takes. Game 1 was against Guambats where the Warriors lost by 1. Highlight of the game: the Warriors scoring a 6-point run but was 10 seconds over the soft cap, which would have given the team an opportunity to win by universal point. Game 2 was against Xavier where the Warriors lost by universal. Game 3 was against BC where the Warriors won by 3 points. Highlight of the game: the Warriors showing amazing patience against BC's cup defense by swinging the disc consistently and slowly bringing the disc down to the endzone. Good job, Warriors.

After the quick finals game between Siouk and Black Flag, it was party time on the fields. Highlight: the Warriors going on a picture-picture spree with random and not-so-random people. Some of the victims included members of Siouk (AOUCC champs), members of Black Flag (Manila Spirits champs), a white guy with taped nipples, and local idols Kuya Danny, Jeffrey from Bora, and Towie. The Warriors, with the exception of those who left early and Dangerous Girl who stayed at the party, capped off the Manila Spirits weekend with a lamon fest at one of the Warriors' favorite post-ACC games hangout - Congo Grill.

UW Manila Spirits '09 lineup:
Fel, Czar, Dino, Doc, Jim, JP, JM, Karlo,
Lloyd, Mike, Mundz, Nana, Pat, Paul, Ward
Cel, Ena, Jacq, Jane, Kring, Lei, Mina, Tish, Yelle

M&M 2009 Update (Week 5)

First Pool A Win
Yay the Warriors Men got their first Pool A win last Sunday against Monster! The guys started on defense and Monster scored first, but the Warriors were able to catch up. The two teams exchanged points until the Warriors scored for the mirror at 6-4. Monster played catch-up the rest of the game. At some point the Warriors led by 4 points, but Monster managed to cut it down to 2, then to 1. Last point was called at 10-9 with Monster on defense. The Warriors managed to convert that possession into a point, so Warriors won, 11-9!

The Warriors played Askalz in the second game. The boys had a pretty good flow and were executing plays well. They traded points with the Askalz until they were tied at 4. That was when the Askalz upped their game and took the lead at 9-4. The Warriors managed to score two more points, but the Askalz claimed the game at 11-6. Still, good job, Warriors!

Savage Baby Girls
Nine Baby Girls played savage against Chicks with Discs and Discpatchadoras. The Girls played hard but lost the must-win game against Chicks by one point. In the second game, the Baby Girls scored two points against the Discpatchers. Over quota! Good job, Baby Girls!

Ultimate in 10 Simple Rules

Steve Courlang and Neal Dambra
Copyright © Ultimate Players Association, 1993

1. The Field: A rectangular shape with end zones at each end. A regulation field is 70 yards by 40 yards,with end zones 25 yards deep.

2. Initiate Play: Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their respective end zone line. The defense throws (“pulls”) the disc to the offense. A regulation game has seven players per team.

3. Scoring: Each time the offense completes a pass in the defense's end zone, the offense scores a point. Play is initiated after each score.

4. Movement of the Disc: The disc may be advanced in any direction by completing a pass to a teammate. Players may not run with the disc. The person with the disc (“thrower”) has ten seconds to throw the disc. The defender guarding the thrower (“marker”) counts out the stall count.

5. Change of Possession: When a pass in not completed (e.g. the disc went out of bounds, or was dropped, blocked, or intercepted), the defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense.

6. Substitutions: Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a score and during an injury time-out.

7. Non-contact: No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made.

8. Fouls: When a player initiates contact on another player a foul occurs. When a foul disrupts possession, the play resumes as if the possession was retained. If the player committing the foul disagrees with the foul call, the play is redone.

9. Self-Officiating: Players are responsible for their own foul and line calls. Players resolve their own disputes.

10. Spirit of the Game: Ultimate stresses sportsmanship and fair play. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.

M&M 2009 Update (Week 4)

It's now Round 2 of the elimination games.

The UW Men's Team are currently playing in Pool A after winning against Lolos in last week's crossover match. Yesterday our guys had their first taste of Pool A ultimate goodness against the more experienced and hardcore Heyman and the Masters of the Universe, Sexual Chocolate, and T3. The Warriors lost all three games to point caps, but still they played hard and managed to take 7 points against Heyman, 5 against Sexual, and 3 against T3. Good job, Warriors in Pool A!

Yesterday was deja vu for the Weng Weng Warriors Club when they once again battled it out with Disc Menor Hijas, KAI, and Devil Dogs. The Baby Girls lost again to the Hijas and were blown out by the Devil Dogs, but maintained their dominance over KAI. Good job, Baby Girls!

Win-Loss Record in Round 2:
Ultimate Warriors 0-3
Weng Weng Warriors Club 1-2

Win-Loss Record in Round 1:
Ultimate Warriors 6-1
Weng Weng Warriors Club 3-4

M&M 2009 Day 1

Ultimate Warriors - Men's Team
Record after three games: 2-1

The Warriors dominated the first game against Super Bueno and the third game against Kainumanggi, but lost the second game to Circus Weng Weng by universal point.

Weng Weng Warriors Club a.k.a. Baby Girls
Record after three games: 2-1

In the first game, the Baby Girls were slaughtered on the field by the Devil Dogs. Aside from the fact that the Devil Dogs are one of the top seeded teams, it was also the Baby Girls' first game as a team and everyone was still trying to assess each other's game. By game 2, the Baby Girls were more organized and confident, and won against MAD/USC by 6 points. SP forfeited due to lack of players so Day 1 ended early for the girls.

Summer League 2009: The Final Score

Saturday, 6th of June. Summer League 2009 ended with a bang, or rather with a splash, as teams battled it out in the rain. The Warriors defeated BC in their first game of the day but lost to a strong K3 in the semi-finals. The battle for 3rd saw the Warriors playing against regular practice buddies Circus Weng Weng. Circus took the first half with a 4-point lead, but the Warriors managed to rally to 6-5 before the last point was called. The Warriors took the last point for a chance to win the game by universal point. The Heart Attack Play was in effect, and the Warriors ended up getting the universal point to bag 3rd place.

Later in the after party, Captain Fel a.k.a. FedEx was named MVP. That makes two MVP Warriors this year! Woohoo!

Good job, Warriors!

Next up...
Malakas-Maganda 2009... Coming end of June.

March Recap

The Warriors joined the 7th Boracay Open for the first time. Seventeen Warriors enjoyed a whole lot of sun, sand, disc, and booze. Of course, they also celebrated old and new friendships Bora Open style.. coz they were in Bora. Right.

To cap off March, the Warriors had a victory party slash despedida for the Honeyz. It was crazy and bittersweet at the same time. It was also the night of the HOTNESS. The team also elected new captains. Congrats and good luck to new captains Fel, Czar, Jacq, and Lei.
