On October 27th, the Butler Ultimate Frisbee Team traveled to Indiana Weslyan for a tournament. About an hour north, our team arrived as a motley crew of excited, enthusiastic, players ready to prove themselves on the field. Here are the results from the seven hour day of straight Ultimate
Game 1: Butler 9 , ISU 11
**A tight contest from the very beginning, often we were tied or behind by a single score. This was a great first showing for our first matchup of the day.
Game 2: Butler 8 , IU-B 11
**After we pulled out to an early lead, IU battled back to tie the game at 8. We fought hard but ultimately lost. This was arguably our best game of the day: IU had twice as many players as we did; we had just finished our game against ISU; and IU has a legitimate coach.
Game 3: Butler 11 , UIndy 13
**After 5 of our players went home for other obligations, we were left with only 10 players, which was effectively 9 following an injury sustained in the IU matchup. We staged a 5 point comeback, complete with incredible defensive stands and flawless offense, before eventually giving up the final point.
Game 4: Butler 13 , IWU-B 2
**This was a fun game against a fun team. There was never a doubt of whether we would win the game, and we had opportunities to unleash the dreaded Spartan Defense and Dinosaur Offense.
Final standings after wins and point differences:
- Ball State
- IWU A
- IWU B
Our current overall record is 2-3.
